Staff were great, location was okay, wifi was miserable if you left the kitchen area and sometimes went in and out. Okay, it's a hostel. Bathrooms were pretty good, the ladders on the beds were weirdly thin making being on the top bunk more uncomfortable. Met some good people but met some not great people too. Overall main problems were...

It wasn’t the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I've stayed in a lot of hostels across the world.. However, it was a place to lay my head and included breakfast in the morning (always good for saving some pennies.) The reception staff were all helpful but the atmosphere wasn't great and the one girl in my room I...

Some strange people kicking around this hostel. Facilities were clean and very secure hostel. Wouldn't let me have a visitor which was fair enough but when we asked them if they could call around and see if any hotels were available they were really rude and basically just gave us directions to hotels to walk to in the freezing cold...

Staff very friendly, location fairly good. The Wifi signal is too weak in most rooms, in the common area it works perfectly. free self service breakfast,but you must get down early if you want to find something to eat. smoking area outside with some chairs. Good value for the money.

The Four Courts Hostel was brilliant! Really enjoyed our stay. 10-15 mins walk from O'Connell Street and about 2mins from Temple Bar. We walked to the Guinness Storehouse too. We had a two person room which had a shower and toilet on suite. One thing I will say that we hadn't realised is that you need to bring a passport...

First of all, the location is perfect. Right in the very heart of Dublin. Secondly, open 24 hours a day which makes things so easy. Thirdly, prices are good. The whole experience of staying there reminded me of my school days: sharing dorms, the canteen, the overall atmosphere. I liked it a lot and recommend to every backpacker.

I stayed here for New Years weekend with a friend and it was okay. The room was clean, but the lockers were stored under the bed and very loud to get out plus took up a lot of the room when you did. The shower didn't really drain, and turned on in 1-2 minute intervals with no control over the...

About a 10 to 15 minute walk from temple bar and O'Connell Street, this hostel was a lot quieter than many I have stayed at in Dublin, which was nice. Security was very good, staff were all friendly and the room and bathroom were very clean and in a good condition. The beds were also really comfy and warm. A...

We were 2 people and we stayed for about 3 nights. I really enjoyed staying here. It was clean and organized. We stayed in a 4 bed room. Something to note is the higher prices during the weekends. Great place and great people!

It's about a 10 minute walk from Temple area and the main area of the city, but still within walking distance of most of the attractions. We stayed in a private twin room which was very basic but at least they included towels (but one of them didn't look very clean). There was 24 hour hot water but it was...
