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

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

Such a dirty place! Nothing good to say about this at all really. Bathrooms were filthy, smelly, blocked drains, no soap or toilet paper and only 1 working toilet! Rooms stunk and beds were very creaky! Do not stay here!

The worst hostel in Dublin. Extramente kitchen is dirty and the bathrooms too, current manager (Aug / 2014) a coarse and rude. The cheap always comes out expensive. Serves not to sleep any night. Not recommend to anyone.
