“Fantastic Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

Fab hostel, staff were really great, always helped you out whatever you asked, nothing was too much trouble. Staff put on lots of activities over the bank holiday weekend and Good Friday when all the bars were closed which made the weekend really great. Everything was clean/comfortable in rooms, very comfortable beds and the cleanest hostel bathroom I have ever had.The breakfast was good and the location is Ideal for exploring Dublin/ temple bar! This hostel is such good value for what it provides and I will recommend to everyone, we will be back soon!

Room Tip: booked an 8 bed dorm and no complaints!

Just returned from staying at the Four Courts Hostel as part of a group of 14 on a stag do and had a fantastic time. We were welcomed by 2 friendly Hostel workers and able to store luggage 4 hours before check in and 6 hours after check out!
The rooms were more than adaquate, clean, warm, decent showers. The bunks are very comforatble and all in all very impressed.
Security is tight as its 24hour access so make sure you remember you security pass
Didnt really sample breakfast as we were looking for more something a bit more substantual!
Would stay again tommorrow!

I was in Dublin for the latest fully-booked-packed-up St Patric's Day Week-end.
I was late in booking, and the only central Hostel I found two beds in the same room was the Four Courts Hostel.
I have been satisfied of my accommodation and of my stay at this hostel for the following reasons:
- The bed: classic bunk bed in a 16 beds girls dorm was comfortable, the room was big enough for all of us
- The location is perfect: a nice walk along the Leaffy takes you to Temple Bar and O'Connel/Grafton: perfect distance to get out of the mess but being close enough to reach it if you like it :) (quite place but not isolated)
- Staff/Common room with internet access is helpful and full optional: they also print for you the Boarding Pass: that really helps! and have a bus service to take you to the airport every 30 minutes in the night also! it was really good and cheap (6 euros)
- Price was reasonable for St. Paddy: 70 euros x 3 nights
I would recommend the staff at the Four Courts of the following (cheap!) improvements:
- Oil a bit or change (do you know IKEA?) the drawers : they are the hell noisy even though you're trying not to wake up all the dorm!
- Please please change the showers curtains with some kind of sliding door and add more showers (2 for 20 beds are a little underestimated, aren't they?!)
This said, I would definitely  be back in the hostel,
have a nice time in Dublin!

Four Courts was fantastic, Stayed in a 6 bed mixed room, the lockers are under the bed and are perfect size if you're backpacking. The room came with an en suite bathroom, and came with breakfast. The food itself was somewhat bland, but you cant beat free breakfast. The Hostel pub crawl was amazing too, for 12 euro you get free entry into 3 pubs and a club, a few free shots, guinness, and drink specials. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Recently spent a night in this hostel, in a twin en suite room, costing 70 euros a night and it was a dreadful experience. The room was small beyond description, there was not a single available surface you could leave anything on, so you were expected to leave and pile everything on the floor. The beds were 1.70 cm long, so an average size person would have their feet hanging off the end of the bed. There was also a constant, loud buzzing engine noise coming from the outside from what looked like a heating or ventilation tower that made it almost impossible to get any proper sleep all night. When I complained to the staff about the noise all they could say was they didn't know anything about this, and when I asked if they could give us another room the answer was the place was booked out. There were plenty of ads and promos in reception for pub crawls and binge drinking, so this is perhaps the way to get a more satisfying experience of this type of accommodation.
