Stayed here with two friends on the 2nd of June to the 5th of June. Well, they have clean linens and pretty comfortable bunk beds and the dorm room we got was pretty spacious. We got the 10 bed mixed dorm room at the basement. The room we got was poorly ventilated. I guess we got what we paid for,... More

Myself and my friend stayed here during Forbidden Fruit 2015 and it was a very reasonable (52euro for 3 nights on a bank holiday weekend in an 8 bed dorm) There was a little bit of confusion when we arrived and there are not a lot of shower and toilet facilities but overall a very enjoyable stay.

I stayed here on the 31st of March, our window in our room was broken and didn't close, which was dangerous as there was a fire escape right outside so someone could easily come into the room! Our bed was literally a thin mattress on a block of wood. The bathroom was clean but the toilet was under the sink... More

Stayed here the last weekend in march, found it very central. Close to train/bus station and 2 mins walk from O'Connell st. Booked a double room with private bathroom, it was small but very clean and perfect for what we wanted...just a place to rest. Surprisingly had a tv aswel with few channels. The only 2 things that I have... More

My friend and I visited this hostel for 2 nights in March 2015. I don't even know where to start, it was disgusting. The bathroom ceiling was covered in mould, the shower head was leaking and we weren't provided with any toilet roll. The metal bed frame was broken and looked like it had been snapped off leaving the two... More

Unlike other reviews I have very little negative feedback. This is a basic hostel in a good location in Dublin, it isn't the cleanest or the best equipped. But when you're getting in at 3am and out by 10am and only paying £20 a night we didn't require anymore. If this isn't the weekend timetable you're looking for then don't... More

I booked up a last minute 24 hour trip to Dublin to watch harlequins vs leinster in the European cup so needed somewhere central and cheap to stay . As always tripadvisor seemed ok when I booked it but transformed to the worst reviews ever when I got back . I've stayed in hostels before and most were better then... More
