As a group of girls travelling to Dublin to enjoy the night life, this place is not recommended.
Cheap and clean enough but that was the only positive. We were not able to check in until 3pm which we were not made aware of. The hostel is advertised as a place to party which is not the case. The place has a dirty feel about it.
Was not made aware that the location is very dangerous. The hostel is based right next door to the biggest methadone collection point in Dublin and is surrounded by drug addicts (I feel the hostel should be more clear about that).
We were stopped and escorted by the police on our walk back one night and told to put our phones away and to be vigilant as drug users and ‘ladies of the night’ enjoy gathering around the area. Not at all suitable for a group of young girls.
The staff also took umbrage to us having a friend who was from Dublin join us one evening for drinks. We were told they were not even allowed to stay 10 mins and must leave immediately. This was despite the fact we’d paid for 10 people to stay and there were only 8 of us.More
