Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely fabulous hostel with great dorms as well as “hotel rooms”. Comfortable and warm and welcoming staff who are friendly and helpful. Couldn’t ask for more. My dorm was soo comfortable and each bed is private by using individual curtains. Fantastic.

Really nice hostel in the centre of Dublin. Not the safest area, but during the day is great. It has everything you need but the kitchen, which was very disappointing to me. Pods are big enough to fit in, only thing my locker was broken and I needed to bring my stuff to the reception locker, thank god they had that option. Breakfast was good for 12 euro, buffet. In general, I would stay again.

Best hostel I ever been. The reception guys are great super helpful, Keith the guy in the night shift was great help me a lot with advices about the city, the housekeeping wore very responsive to my needs, clean sheets, clean towel, speacil Petronela help me with my loker because i forget my password. The bar downstairs has good working people, smiling every time, and make you feel good. And another thing is even if you don t know how to speak in English, the stuff is multinationals Spanish Romanians Turkish france etc.

I arrived just after midnight. Then paid 16 Euros for a pod (?) Quite like a coffin. Plenty of space for luggage and lockers for valuables. Breakfast from 7.30 am. The neighbourhood is not that safe (even though it has a major police station next door) more of a young person's hostel, stayed once before years ago, in a single room.

The place is fantastic, with a great central location. Facilities kept pace with the present. Cleanliness standards are taken very seriously. Thumbs up to Petronella (I hope I got her name right :-) for all the help and for going the extra mile to help me and other guests. Will return and will recommend it to all my friends!

Had a great stay here for 2 nights as a group of three female friends - in a 10 bed women-only room. ~€23pp per night. Excellent location - right next to a tram stop (Busaras) on the Red Line. Never felt unsafe walking around the area. Only a 20 minute walk into Temple Bar district. Check in was easy (we did it online in advance) and there was a luggage room to leave bags (including lockers if you wanted to pay for them). Easy to get to/from airport via Dublin Express (have to arrange yourself). The room itself was good - you each got a pod (with shelf, hook, light, USB charging port) - that had a curtain to shut - and a locker (with a key pad, no padlock needed). Bathroom was nice and clean. The only thing was that it did get hot in the pods at night! We went to the bar one night to redeem the free drink tokens we were given on booking - was a nice bar if not very busy that night. Band were good if not under appreciated! There was some food but it was expensive. There was a chill out room with microwave, & places to sit (with games) by reception. Events were put on by hostel (bar crawl, comedy night) but we didn’t go.
