Reviewed 13 May 2017

Great service to have a small breakfast in the morning, this was actualty a bit unexpected. The hostel has his faults with the comfort of the beds, heating, shower and hygiene. But over all a cheap place to stay for a short citytrip in Dublin.

The hostel is located in an ok area not far from the centre. We booked a 4 bed room just for the two of us. The room was in a dependance across a small backyard. I am giving the worst review possibile because of a major hygienical issue: the room had no window but a 40x40 cm hole in the ceiling, sealed with transparent plastic, not opening. There was a private toilet with no window nor working vent. I repeat: no window in the room, no window nor working vent in the toilet. Heating could not be adjusted and the temperature was extremely high. Since fresh air is surviving-minimum even for convicted criminals, even for beasts, i think that the conditions offered were unacceptable. The assistent told me ut was a "budget room" so there may be better ones in the hostel.

I stayed here on Friday & Saturday 27th & 28th Jan.
Olton on the desk was very helpful and accommodating. I was with three of my other colleagues room was a bit small, cleanliness was ok, bathroom: shower needs fixing as water goes everywhere get really cold at night as the heating is taken off.
We were able to use the kitchen from after 10.00 am to 9pm this facility was clean. I didn't send much time there as we were working most of the day. Overall it was ok. Easy to get to good supermarket in the area. Transport was also very good.

Cheap and close enough to the city centre!

Rooms were ok but really worn and were in big need of renovation!!!

Breakfast was nothing special and the breakfast room so small so that there were not enough seats for everyone!

There are, or at least should be, better cheap places in Dublin!!!!

Don't expect any luxury here but if you are after good accommodation for a great price it's worth a visit. Staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. Great location for some great bars and restaurants outside Dublin centre but only a 15 minute walk and your in temple bar.
On a main bus route so easy to get to and from airport and the city centre.
