I was very disappointed with the hygiene standards as the toilet leaked, the shower didn't drain, and the mattress was just brown with a sheet that was too small to cover it anyway. The window didn't close, which made the room noisy and cold. On the bright side, the staff were really friendly, but it just couldn't make up for... More

We have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and this was by far the worst. We choose a room with an ensuite bathroom. The first thing we noticed was there was no toilet paper in the ensuite bathroom. We were told you don't get any. We have never seen this any where in the world where you... More

When we arrived, we were rudely told that there wasn't room for us and we needed to go down to their other hostel down the street, the Chelsea Hostel. When we arrived there they also told us at first that they had no room for us. After we again, showed our booking itinerary, they reluctantly checked us in but we... More

We booked 2 beds in this hostel through Hostel Bookers website. When we got to Dublin, the guy in reception (1st place under this management - "ok" guy) told us our beds were 3 blocks down the road... gone to the new place (2nd place under this management- ridiculous receptionist) : "no beds available at all". Oh well, we've already... More

..it's an hostel. Staff was very nice, but it was the only good quality. Everything else.. poor me! Not clean at all, noisy and narrow! Bathroom was very small and quite dirty. One of the blanket had a stain of blood (!). Never again.

This place was disgusting. We booked a private room with ensuite and it was disgusting. The receptionist did not speak english very well so could not get help from here when we queried where we parked. We had paid for parking and I must say don't! This was in the backyard of another hostel down the road and it is... More

Wow.... ive stayed in many hostels and know better than to expect 5 star luxury but this is uninhabitable. Its really not fit for pigeons. We were in the 'back house' . Our room was ground floor with a window that wouldn't close and no curtain. The many many people drinking in the courtyard had plain view of you changing/sleeping... More

Room does not look like picture at all. Total dump. Giant spiders everywhere, wifi only works in lobby, stains on bedding, stains on pillows, stains on chairs, no towels provided. Complete lack of hygiene. Seriously, there are better places for far less money.

I booked this hostel for the night i was in the country and I’m sad to say never again. The sanity was atrocious. I stayed in the outside building. The room was dirty and cold, i could smell the mould in the bathroom before i opened the door, the shower doors were broken/unnattached leaving the floor soaked in at least... More
