Great hostel in Temple Bar above a cracking Pub where traditional music is played. It is a easy to get to place from the airport. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean. Highly recommend anyone who needs a good base to stop here.

Location is definitely one of my favourites. I always like to stay right in temple bar when I go to Dublin. The staff was friendly everyday , the bar was full every night. We stayed in the apartments on the roof. They were ok , could use a overhaul to say the least, but still ok. We used the outdoor... More

I booked a bed at this hostel. I was detained at Dublin immigration and not allowed to enter the country, and was not allowed to contact the hostel until AFTER my first scheduled date there. I contacted them the day after I was supposed to arrive, only to find that they had canceled my reservation as a "NO SHOW" and... More

We stayed there for 4 nights, room for 2 persons, 60€/night ! The room was really dirty, hairs everywhere, smell of smoke in the room (when we enter the room, the window was opened and the heating on, probably to make the smell go)! The room doesn't worth 60€ at all!! There is air conditionning in the bathroom as soon... More

Pros: Good central location, good free breakfast with cereal, bread, cheese and fruit. Cons: It's right above the pub, so can be really noisy late at night. I ended up coming back here after my first stay, simply for the really handy location and good value. If you plan on sleeping any time before about 1pm though, bring earplugs.

I stayed there for two nights. My room was very small and very cold as the heating was not working. Inside the bathroom it was even colder. There is a kitchen which can be used to cook your own food which is a big plus. Breakfast is for free but one look at the toster and you will not feel... More

Brilliant room, brilliant staff, decent prices. Would recommend to anyone! Right on temple bar so right by the bars meaning a short walk. The bar attached to the hostel is also good value for money and has brilliant daily live music. We'll be back!

My two friends and I stayed here in September, the staff were very friendly and the rooms we're decent. The internet had poor connection in most of the building but otherwise not a bad place to stay!!

We stayed 2 nights in the penthouse apartments. Very basic and adequate. These are large rooms, 4 twin beds, 2 per bedroom. The beds were not terribly comfortable, but could have been worse. Rooms were fairly clean, just don't look under the bed! Showers were small, but hot. The staff were friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was ok. Saturday night... More
