We stayed in a room for 4 over the weekend. I have to admit the check in was the best I have ever had anywhere, super friendly and helpful. The room was facing the College Street which is busy and noisy at night, so it's good to have earplugs. The heater was off when we came, so it was a... More

Booked via alpharooms for one of the Temple Bar Apartments that this hostel owns for two nights as a Christmas present. Emailed the hostel two days in advance informing them I had booked an apartment, provided them with the dates, and asked for confirmation of where to pick up the keys, which I printed out and took with me, along...

Stayed here for one night on New Year's Eve...a very comfortable stay in the bunk bed of 6 bedded dorm. Bedding and bathroom clean etc. staff at front desk very helpful. Only issue was that there was only 2 cages to lock belongings in so I had to leave my bag under the bed and hope it was not touched... More

The best thing about this hostel is it's location. Smack bang in the centre of Dublin close to Trinity College with the the vibrant and varied atmosphere of the night life on the Liffey within walking distance. A bus from the airport takes you right down O Connel Street over the Liffey and almost to the door of the hostel.... More

I had booked for Skybackpackers liffey but last minute was moved to this location because the sky was closed for renovations. I was very disappointed at first, and haven't ever stayed at sky so couldn't compare the two but this one did the job. This was the last leg of the trip for half of our group who were flying...

Stayed here over the weekend when we were in town to watch the Ireland v South Africa rugby. We were able to drop our bags at 11 and head out for the day before checking in later ready to go out. Staff were helpful, the building feels secure and warm, and the room was spacious enough. Both lockers and under-bed... More

This is a basic place to sleep if you want to come to Dublin. It's not fancy at all and could do with some repairs etc but it has a lovely warm shower, nice staff and excellent location. There's a pub next door so it's a little noisy. The kitchen is the best part as it's quite big and it... More

I booked this hostel for a large group of international students for a week long summer school and I could not fault our experience! It was an ideal location for our venue- Trinity College and the rooms were clean and spacious. The staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful, right through from Nail at booking to Leah and... More

Ratio price/quality is good! Breakfast is great for 3 euros as well. Just a note about the structure and the rooms, they should be reniewed, also cleaness and property... More
