When I have made booking online, it was the cheapest price in that moment, and they were the only hostel in city centre that had full 7 nights for the given price. As I arrived, with my friends we we're one foot in, and already greeten by the frendly staff. They showed us to our rooms, and they said if... More

The hostel is located in the centre, walking distance to pretty much everything. The staff is friendly. We had a private double en-suite, it was really old, thus it looks not very clean, but it probably is cleaner than it looks. The blankets were old and stained but the covers seemed alright. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. The rooms are... More

The staff is quite friendly. Some people on the internet have complained about the rooms being dirty, but I think ours was clean even though the hotel itself is not brand new. Seems like these people are nitpicking. Next time I'll be in Dublin I'll probably go back there.

The only thing worth the place is the location: it's situated in the city centre, just behind O'Connel Street. But the hostel itself is a disaster. We booked a double room with toilet: it was big, but the problem was it was located in the basement, so we hadn't any light and, most important, it was terribly cold: the central... More

At first i wanted to write alot of bad things about this place but in the end its not worth to waste my nervs. To the manager (or the owner, who cares...) You can fix your hostel every year but if you will not fix your attitude to the costomers, they will newer come back. And fix the hole in... More

Honestly it doesn't surprise me that there are many bad reviews but personally from a guy who has spent most of his European trip camping or staying at camp sites similar to this way in hostels I didn't mind my stay. The staff was for the most part kind to me. The place to me was well secure so I... More

This hostel was booked for the night prior to the all Ireland final at the same time as flights, and accommodation for the Sunday night. It was booked because of the location and the fact almost every other hotel was full that night. 12 days after booking my son was contacted and told that due to a "glitch" the hostel... More
