I thought this hostel was in a great location. The staff was really helpful and security was good. However, the cleanliness of the shared bathroom was not good. There was also no hot water in the shower.

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling solo around Ireland in a 12 bunk mixed dorm (though I only ever saw girls in our room!). The first night there was only 1 spare bed in our room (it was a Saturday night & a huge Take That concert was on in town) but the next 2 nights there was...

I was very happy with this hostel. The beds and bathroom were clean, the breakfast was good and the location was excellent, within walking distance of everything I wanted to do. The minor issues I had were that it took about 10 mins of running the shower to get hot water, there was no way to lock the draw under...

The location of the Hostel is in good location between Abbey Street and 'O' Connell Street. The central bus station is around 200 meters away from the door of the hostel. The Airport bus 747 stops in front of the central bus station. The ordinary bus 16 and 41 stops in front of the door of hostel. The other Airport...

I can't be too sure of the price, I forgot, but it must've been cheap based on my stay. The positives: The locations isn't bad. But then again, Dublin is a pretty walkable city in general. They also offer breakfast in the morning which is decent and it makes for a good opportunity to meet people. The negatives: The beds...

We stayed in the townhouse part of the hostel, private rooms great for couples. Our first 2 nights we were in a very large room with full bathroom including a bath. Wifi was excellent as was security to hostel. Good location with a number of bars nearby. Easy walking distance to bus station and temple bar areas. Great value for...

Stayed here last year in a twin room which was very comfortable and clean - although very expensive! However, this year we decided to take dorm beds. We got room A which was dark; stinky; stuffy and gloomy. The beds creaked every time you or the person above breathed; the heaters were on full heat and couldn't be turned down;...

An excellent hotel/guest house/B&B/Hostel, its difficult to describe which category it fits into, however I have stayed in hotels with less facilities. Location is great, right by the bus station and just a couple of mins walk from the main shopping areas, 10 mins to Temple Bar etc. Great Breakfast, welcoming staff, clean and functional. TV in rooms.

Located just a short walk away from the Busaras, which is the Main Bus Terminal, the location couldn't be more central and convenient. My 2 nights stay here was memorable. I had no problems walking to the Temple Bar district and back during my stay there. Dublin is a walkable city, and all the main sights were in reach by...

Fantastic location, female traveller on my own and i was able to walk into Temple bar and back every night. Amazing staff and customer service - every staff member was helpful, friendly, kind, happy - generally wonderful. If stars were issued alone on service - 5 stars!! Breakfast was amazing - full breakfast, cereal, toast, soda bread, porriage, fruit, juice,...

“I had no idea what to choose, and it was random that I be upstairs. However, I did request an all girls room, and there were, I think, 8 beds in total. With earplugs, and something to cover my eyes, it was quite nice! :) Enjoy!!”
