Poor services, dirty rooms and sheets and no internet in the rooms, so you have to stay on the ground floor to be connected. The location though is very convenient. One of the worst hostels i v ever visit.

We was so disappointed with this hostel. Luckily we only stayed for the night whilst visiting dublin city, if I'd have booked it for longer we would have gone somewhere else. The staff were friendly and the location was fab which is the only positive about this hostel. It lives up to the name hostel, broken tiles in the 'en...

The rooms are not like those in the pictures and look at the over sized headboard to the beds, the matres are dirty, smelly and uncomfortable. you will not get a good night here. Breakfast is a joke and even the local pigeons would turn it down.. This hostel is a shambles and not worth even €5 a night. It...

I was heading to Dublin for a few days to visit my friend and in my haste I booked the first (and what I thought) reasonably priced hostel near the city centre that I could find but I was wrong. The only reason I'm not scoring this as terrible is because the staff were friendly. However, I have never seen...

Definitely the worst hostel ever. They put us in a smelly basement room (wich is not on photos), shower is disgusting and awful. In the middle of the night (3 AM) they were setting up matrass on the floor in 10 bed room. I wonder how are they allowed to run that hostel.

I didn't expect much, and I didn't get much. We went to the hostel only to be told that the hostel was closed because of some terrible smell. Then we got moved to another hostel a 15min walk away, which wasn't a lot better. The kitchen and toilets were disgusting. In addition, the hostel was quite a distance away from...

A good place for a short one night stay. It is close to the city centre, the bus and the train station. Bathroom really small, rooms a little old - in need of some repairing, but the bedding was clean and the staff nice.

The room really needed repair, almost everything was broken. No lock on toilet, toilet seat broken, no curtains, traffic noise and people walking front of the window all night. Location is good, and sheets were clean, but it really could be better if the owners just fixed some little things and put up curtains and better isolation for window. It...

Just aweful. We walked in looked around and left to find somewhere else. The no refunds sign should have been a red flag. It was dirty, smelled like smoke and BO. People were sleeping on the cots in the middle of the day. The bathrooms didn't have a door.
