This is the best hostel we have stayed in in Dublin!! We are a school group from Australia that visits Ireland Biannually, and always spend a few nights in Dublin to start off with. This hostel has a lovely feel to it, its spacey (great for our kids to have some freedom, but be 'within the walls'), the rooms are...

This is probably the cheapest hotel in Dublin but it has its faults. The main one is the shower facilities which I thought were way below what you'd expect, even at a cheap hostel. Two showers on my floor were broken, all others just dribbled water at a temperature which was at best lukewarm. There was also only one power...

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. We are in the process of rectifying the plugs situation in the bedrooms so hopefully on your next visit to Dublin you will see the changes. For security and your piece of mind though, we do advise guests to charge their items with the reception team as opposed to leaving...

very bad welcome there, and some last minutes changes without say it before... Lockers are not all working... But it remains a good price, not that far to the city center and rather clean... good for a short stay if you dont have big laugages

The Dublin youth hostel was clean, the staff were very welcoming and helpful, and it has a 24-hour open reception, which can be really helpful. The downsides were that the wifi is unstable, the hostel is situated in a somewhat sketchy part of town, and the only options for breakfast are cold cereal and toast. I wouldn't highly recommend it...

My daughter and I stayed here for one night in a private room. The room was spacious, the shared bathroom was clean. The building is old but in a good state of repair. The staff are friendly, the car park is secure. The continental breakfast is included. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a uni trip. Rooms were clean and spacious, although wifi was very poor and sometimes inaccessible in the rooms. The comfort of the beds were average; neither fully comfortable nor uncomfortable. Wifi was decent in the lobby downstairs. Location is good, only a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre. Staff were...

I have been staying here several times over several years. It has decreased in Quality, their staff is not as motivated and friendly as it used to be. The breakfast is also less than it usually was (there were egg versions available and other stuff, now it's just coffe, toast, cereal and Juice.) The showers have also not been working...

This is a nice hostel, rooms are big, bathrooms were quite clean, staff was pleasant and the atmosphere was quite good. I would say it s a bit expensive compared to hostels in other cities but accomodation in Dublin is really expensive so I guess it 's a good option. Breakfast is basic but free and it is served in...

This hostel is what you pay for - my friend was travelling on a budget, so this was the cheapest we could find in Dublin. Some of the staff is nice and the rooms are relatively clean. However it's a 15 min walk from the centre, there are no power sockets or wifi in the rooms, the breakfast is literally...

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We are sorry to hear about the mix up in the room. On check in everyone is allocated certain bed and bed numbers which match the reservation. If a guest decides to take another bed instead of the ones allocated and not tell the reception team, the reservations do not match and...
