In a street behind the pub well known in Temple Bar, this hostel is a good place to spend a night or 2 in Dublin city center, and to enjoy the pleasures of night. Mixt dortorys, small bedrooms but ensuite. Barely cleaned, but functionnal, really noisy beacause of the proximity with pubs. The system of clothing the door is a... More

We stayed at four hostels in Ireland and this one had the worst security. Only one key card was issued PER ROOM of 6-8 beds. So before going to your room you checked at the desk to see if anyone was in your room already. If not, you got the key card. So ... guests either had to get up... More

Not the worst hostel I've ever stayed in but certainly not the best either. Only one key per room. You're expected to let each other into your room without actually knowing for sure who is meant to be staying in your room. Felt very unsafe. Ensuite bathroom was putrid, blocked toilet and sink, and no other bathrooms to use instead.... More

For the price it was very nice! My only real complaint is that I wasn't told of the pre-authorization, until I got an email 2 weeks before arrival. I booked through booking.com that says no deposit, and the pre-authorization wasn't mentioned, not even in the mail I got from the Hostel after booking, to confirm the data. I would have... More

I'll begin with the positives. The rooms were very spacious, clean and the bathroom was enclosed within the 6 bed room, which avoided the awkward morning showers and toilets in stalls. The inclusive breakfast was also pleasant. The best part of the hostel is its location. Right in the middle of the city and near the restaurant and bar/pub cluster... More

The beds were OK, continental breakfast had many options... room was really noise, but it's something normal because of the location. The only thing that was really bad was the bathroom: the floor was so dirty that we put a towel on it in order to avoid walk through that dirty floor with naked feet.

Pros: location location. If you want to be smack in the middle of temple bar this is the spot. And they give you a free welcome drink (before 6pm) cool interior vibe in the hostel and a huge kitchen dining area and comfy couches in the lounge room On the con: the wifi is exceedingly slow and the kitchen is...

Travelled out to Dublin for my sons stag weekend. Accommodation was ideal for a group, In this case 15 people, with the stag and his freinds bunked up in 2 x. 6 bed dormitory rooms. The four 50+ guys (including moi) rented one of the 2 bed apartments. The accommodation was comfortable, two bedrooms with one en-suite, kitchen, sitting and... More

Friendly service and comfortable accommodations. Easy to locate and right in the heart of the Temple Bar area. The staff was knowledgeable and very willing to help and offer advice. The Breakfast was simple but good. We stayed in a twelve bedroom and met some interesting people.
