Paid 50 euro for a shared room- top bunk. I am not 25 so this was an issue. Airport service they offer didn't bother to drop us off at the correct terminal . If I had paid less I would haven given a better rating- but if you have the extra 50 euro, get a hotel

My Dad and I stayed here for a couple days while in Dublin. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The beds were setup a little strange which made it tough to get on the top bunk. It was nice to have a bathroom in our room in case you have to get up in the night. They could install... More

Spent 2 nights from 21st August 2014 with my daughter. We had a private room with 2 single beds. Right near to The Temple Bar area and walking distance for all the attractions! Great staff on reception and check in was easy and fast! There's storage for your bags when you leave and nothing is to much trouble. Breakfast was... More

Me and my cousin arrived in Dublin and went there even without having booked before. The price is cheap, we paid 16 euros/night in common dorms. The beds were clean and rather comfortable. The staff was really nice and helpful, giving us some indications about the good spots and what to do at night for instance. The breakfast was included... More

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Check-in and check-out were done very quickly even though we were there at a busy time. It wasn't too loud at night and beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were spotless and there was plenty of toilets and showers, no need to queue. The free breakfast was simple but wasn't expecting much more. The... More

This hostel was super cheap but such an amazing atmosphere to be in. I was in the Avalon Room (24 beds) with 2 other of my friends. We arrived in Dublin at 6 am - obviously too early to check in but reception let us pay just not receive keys and let us join in for breakie at 7. Super... More

Two weeks before arriving here I emailed the hostel twice and never heard back. On a arrival the girl at the counter, left us standing there for two minutes without even acknowledging us, it wasn't until I said are you busy, she stop on the computer and said I'll be two minutes. Then when she was checking us in she... More

I stayed 5 nights in a 16-person dorm. My bed was a bit uneven which made sleeping a bit challenging, but nothing too awful. Unfortunately the room was invaded by a bunch of young students who smoked + drank in the room every night, then stumbled in drunk at 4:00 AM screaming at each other. Not the hostel's fault, but...
