Stayed here at the weekend with a small group of friends (age 19) and although it is very basic it is good for the money! The location in Dublin is ideal - easy to walk to the main area and good bus service regularly. We stayed in a private bedroom with ensuite which had all we needed although it was... More

Travelled to Dublin with my boyfriend as a surprise birthday weekend, and although this hostel was incredibly simplistic, it's the cheapest you'll find and does the job. We had a private room, including one surprisingly comfortable and large double bed and a small bathroom with a shower. We didn't spend much time in the hostel, only to sleep really, and... More

Really the worst hostel I've seen so far in my life. When I arrived, no one was at the reception, and I had to wait for 20 minutes for someone to come, which is still all right. This person did not explain anything to me, so I was puzzled and shocked to discover than to go to the ladies' toilets,... More

We went as a large group (12) and found the hostel to be very accomodating. We were given a dorm for 8 and an ensuite room for 4. Given that we only paid 40 each for a 2 night stay (over the weekend) can't really complain. - Very central location - 5-10 min walk to Temple Bar / Centre /... More

I am not picky, the place it's ok for the price since you won't find anything really cheaper, so if you are after budget this is it, if you can pay a little more, let's say 89, stay in the Globetrotters that is in front, we saw the rooms and they were ok. We had a double, bathroom inside. They... More

I think this hostel was decent, of course not exactly amazing. You get what you pay for. The bunks in our dorm were comfy and clean and although the bathroom wasn't the best, it was bearable. The wifi didn't work and the walls are very thin but I had a good sleep anyway. Bring your own towel btw.

Worst hostel I ever been to. There was only two bathrooms for the whole hostel, no lockers and it was not very clean. It was full of weird people. The only good thing is it's location. Try to find another hostel in Dublin, which is a great city.

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
