First of all, the location is perfect. Right in the very heart of Dublin. Secondly, open 24 hours a day which makes things so easy. Thirdly, prices are good. The whole experience of staying there reminded me of my school days: sharing dorms, the canteen, the overall atmosphere. I liked it a lot and recommend to every backpacker.

I stayed here for New Years weekend with a friend and it was okay. The room was clean, but the lockers were stored under the bed and very loud to get out plus took up a lot of the room when you did. The shower didn't really drain, and turned on in 1-2 minute intervals with no control over the...

About a 10 to 15 minute walk from temple bar and O'Connell Street, this hostel was a lot quieter than many I have stayed at in Dublin, which was nice. Security was very good, staff were all friendly and the room and bathroom were very clean and in a good condition. The beds were also really comfy and warm. A...

We were 2 people and we stayed for about 3 nights. I really enjoyed staying here. It was clean and organized. We stayed in a 4 bed room. Something to note is the higher prices during the weekends. Great place and great people!

It's about a 10 minute walk from Temple area and the main area of the city, but still within walking distance of most of the attractions. We stayed in a private twin room which was very basic but at least they included towels (but one of them didn't look very clean). There was 24 hour hot water but it was...

Stayed for a few nights in the middle of November. The best thing is it's location, you are quite close to everything and you couldn't be more central than this. The mattress was pretty decent, I had good night sleep. However the free breakfast is quite basic. The rooms and amenities are ok.

While the staff was friendly, the place itself is terrible. There is one bathroom to share for an entire floor of about 30 people, and the bathroom itself is small, cramped and disgusting. The room itself seemed ok, at least until I got a bedbug infection a few days later from sleeping on the sheets and comforter they provided. This...

We only stayed one night here in one of their private rooms. The service from the front desk was very good! They don't have a room with a double bed and the breakfast isn't very nurturing, but the rooms are clean and the management is great. Overall, we were pleased.

I had the worst room experience here, the people in my room were extremely rude and self centered. This is nothing against the hostel obviously - the hostel was good in its own but I wouldn't recommend staying in the all female 14 bed room as its full of crazy people. 😂 the breakfast was as you would expect and...

Overall, for a hostel, this place is very comfortable. The rooms were quite large and they even had nice under bed lockers to provide a little more security for your belongings. Each bed had some sort of outlet near it so it was very convenient to charge your devices and access to wifi was free. I was there for the...
