As a female travelling alone, I had requested an all-female dorm at the Camden Place Hostel. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was the only person staying in the 4-bed dorm. Even if the room had been full, there was plenty of room and storage space. The bed was comfortable, with exceptionally clean bedding, and I had a great sleep at this hostel. It was off a main road, so it was very quiet at night, but not too far away to make me feel unsafe walking alone. The bathroom here was just fine, though I had some difficulties with the shower temperature. It was either steamy hot or icy cold. The windows also didn't close tight and it was very cold the night I was there, so the room was chilly and I couldn't make the heat work - I'm sure had I asked the staff, they could have helped, but it wasn't a big problem.
Small inconvenience. The hostel was great - internet worked well, the common areas were buzzing, the staff were stellar and turned me onto a free walking tour of the city.
The location is also great. I prefer quieter areas, but within walking distance of all the main attractions and this place fit the bill. I didn't have to take a bus or taxi once, except to and from the airport.
The hostel offers free breakfast, but I opted out and went to a lovely restaurant down the road for a full Irish breakfast.
Great price, great stay and highly recommended.
