I wouldn't recommend this place. Although the staff is very friendly and helpful, this hostel is located next to some type of drug treatment facility and there were several scary people hanging around outside while I was there. The room was extremely small and not very clean. Wifi is terrible.

it's been my first time in a hostel. This time we were traveling in a budget and we decided to try here after other visits to the city staying in B&B and hotels. I can say that it was much better than I expected. Everything was very clean and I can state that because I'm allergic to dust and I...

Spent one night here for the recent Ireland v Wales football match and I think they saw us coming! €130 for a tiny room with a bunk bed and a communal shower at the end of the corridor! I'm glad I was drunk when I went to sleep as I could feel the springs through the wafer thin mattress, I'm...

Staff were great, location was okay, wifi was miserable if you left the kitchen area and sometimes went in and out. Okay, it's a hostel. Bathrooms were pretty good, the ladders on the beds were weirdly thin making being on the top bunk more uncomfortable. Met some good people but met some not great people too. Overall main problems were...

It wasn’t the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I've stayed in a lot of hostels across the world.. However, it was a place to lay my head and included breakfast in the morning (always good for saving some pennies.) The reception staff were all helpful but the atmosphere wasn't great and the one girl in my room I...

Some strange people kicking around this hostel. Facilities were clean and very secure hostel. Wouldn't let me have a visitor which was fair enough but when we asked them if they could call around and see if any hotels were available they were really rude and basically just gave us directions to hotels to walk to in the freezing cold...

Staff very friendly, location fairly good. The Wifi signal is too weak in most rooms, in the common area it works perfectly. free self service breakfast,but you must get down early if you want to find something to eat. smoking area outside with some chairs. Good value for the money.

The Four Courts Hostel was brilliant! Really enjoyed our stay. 10-15 mins walk from O'Connell Street and about 2mins from Temple Bar. We walked to the Guinness Storehouse too. We had a two person room which had a shower and toilet on suite. One thing I will say that we hadn't realised is that you need to bring a passport...

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...
