Great hostel! The staff was super friendly, the facilities clean and the atmosphere good. I booked a mixed shared room for four people and it had a private bath for circa 20 euros per night. The hostel was also conveniently located to most tourist attractions. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a group of 17 people staying for 2 nights and were treated well. The luggage room is a little small for such a large group (who also traveled with some suitcases that were silly large!) but the staff was kind and helpful. The location is perfect to public transportation and the city centre.

Had a great stay here- the air coach drops you off on O'Connell street and it's roughly a 5 min walk from there and close to the ha'penny bridge. Excellent location and the breakfast was so good as well! For only €3 so I certainly recommend. Alan was our tour guide and he was great (thanks Alan!). It's next to...

I stayed with two other friends on a Thursday night in the 6 bed female dorm. It was clean and great value for money at around €54 for all three of us. The staff were helpful and the location was brilliant (so central). There were some free beers in the common room that night and other travelers seemed friendly and...

This hostel is located in the city center, so you don't need to spend much money for transportation. They have quite big common area (kitchen & living room) and they also offer free dinner event in every week. The room and toilet were clean. But the room is little bit smaller than other hostels.

We stayed in this hostel during our visit to Dublin last December (2016). The hostel is centrally located, so not far away from most of Dublin's main sights. Staff is really friendly, there's a good Wi-Fi connection and breakfast is really great - so far the best breakfast I've had in a hostel. The rooms are "clean enough" for a...
