The location of hostel is very good - near one of the most popular shopping streets of Dublin - Grafton Street. So Trinity College, parks are near too. Calm part of town. Hostel stuff is very helpful. Free ability to leave luggage if you come until 2 p. m., when check-in starts. There is a kitchen, and clients get free...

After having read some of the reviews I was expecting the worst. The beds and the rooms were quite clean, but the floors, the toilets and the showers were absolutely filthy. The staff wasn't friendly at all. On the other hand, the location is quite good.

This is an awful hostel! It smells of pee and smoke, and you can hear everything your neighbours are doing. We had a shower in our room but it was broken so we couldn't use it. Instead we used the common showers, and they weren't much better. Either they didn't have any "power" so it took half an hour to...

We stayed in this hostel in early July 2012 and fled early the next morning. The bed is sunken and you can feel the springs. The bed sheets were very dirty. The floor is very dirty and there are moulds on the skirting of the walls. The attached bathroom stinks to high heaven and so small that you can hardly...

My friend and I booked a 4 bed female room for 3 nights at Citi Hostel. Reading the reviews after booking, I regretted making the down payment. We expected the worst, but, we were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Citi Hostel proved to be an inexpensive nice little place, very close to the city centre. The room and sheets...

I spent 6 nights in a 4-woman room. Apparently all the other women live there full-time, and their stuff covered all available space in the tiny room, and included dirty dishes and food. The closet was packed with their stuff; the bathroom floor and toilet covered with their toiletries, laundry, and shoes. They were in the place throughout the day,...
