Reviewed 20 June 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights with a partner in June 2012. we did find it initially difficult to find, it's just a door right beside the O Connell st irish pub. our first impression wasn't great, as it's quite small and on the 4th floor of an apartment building (don't worry, there's a lift!) but this turned out to be unfounded. the staff were very friendly. our room was indeed very small, as was the ensuite, but was tidy and clean, and clean bed linen and towels were provided. the hostel is so cheap I actually expected less! . the bed was comfortable and the room was cool, with a door to an inside kind of open area (you can't go out though) and a fan. the WiFi worked perfectly for us. a no frills place but would recommend for those on a budget who aren't immensely fussy and just want somewhere clean, comfortable and well
located.

Great advantage of Hostal Olivier is its location, it is just next to Plaza del Sol. Rooms are cozy but rather small. Bathroom was new although very small. Another thing is a noise from other rooms and pub under the hostal. If somebody like silence this is definitely not the right place. It is for people who likes parties. During our stay the whole hostal was clean so I cannot say a word.

It's a hostal but I traveled with enough friends to get a private room so didn't experience the room share experience. The room was ok. Not dirty but certainly not the cleanest. As this and many other lodgings in the area are right above bars and restaurants, which isn't that bad if that's what you're here to do, the noise from the crowd outside was ridiculous and never ends. Make sure to bring ear plugs and you'll have a good night's sleep.

Also, the "free" internet doesn't work 99.9% of the time. Even when it shows you have full internet bars, I was only once able to get onto one website but it stopped working after a couple of minutes. The people working there doesn't speak English so was not helpful when information was needed. They were nice though.

Borderline recommend.
