Good place for young people, music, bar, good ambiance, maybe less interessant when you are with your family. The black point : the commercial face : the Wifi is free, but ALL the other services are to be paied (7€ to use the laundry, or the luggage room..)

I think all the generator hostels are pretty good, Dublin was no exception. The rooms are spacious enough and always clean.

It's a great hostel in Dublin, been there with friends and it was very fun to stay at. Staff members are cool, the bar is open late and the room was very clean and well equiped. We booked a room for 4 with private bathroom, and it was just what we need for a week-end in Dublin.

On the other end, this hostel seems like the best one in Dublin and is very nice and very trendy. Overall, regardless of how I...
