I stayed here on my last night in Dublin. I had met someone on a tour who was also staying there, so they tried to find us a room together, but unfortunately they were almost full. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Very good spot, with a good price, nice location and a great breakfast. For people that don't want spend a lot of money on stay and transport, it is an excellent solution. And the security system for entry into the hostel very good. It is almost impossible for someone stranger to the hostel to enter the areas only for guests.

Great Location, value for money [Lock cage baskets for your bags, sockets and adapters were a great touch as well as the curtains over the bed provided privacy for reading, laptop and sleeping] I would reccomend this Hostel, as it is walking distance to the city center and nex to the bus station that takes you around Ireland

Very nice hostel. The staff were great. Only thing I didn't like was the showers. I'm from the states so I don't know if this is common around Europe. Pressing the shower button to work every 30 sec :(

I've been coming back to this hostel for over a decade now. I've always been very happy with it and can only recommend it! The beds are very comfy and the rooms warm enough so you don't need to bring a sleeping bag. Duvets are nice and fluffy. Every bed has a plug and little light and a curtain to...

This is by a country mile the best hostel in Dublin City, the curtains and sockets in each bed is a real plus and the kitchen is brilliant. Also the laundry is cheaper than any hostel around and with most rooms ensuite it's very convenient

I stayed in a 10 person mixed room with one other person. On our first night there, someone decided to have sex for over an hour and kept everyone up. It was beyond uncomfortable to be in that room. That morning, I went and spoke to the staff. They said that they couldn't move me and my only other option...
