The staff is very helpful and friendly, especially the gentlemen named Ludo. The facility is pretty clean for the price. The cafe and bathrooms are clean, which is a great plus. It's very organized and a very lively place. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. There is also a bus you can take directly from the airport. Basically,... More

Good location just near the Temple Bar area and sight seeing places, average Bed and Breakfast. There was some noise from the street before midnight. Comfortable common room with couches, ping pong table, TV and some video games. Good Kitchen to make your own food and free wifi works very well.

The first one had a good disposition as a mezzanine, so that there was a bit of privacy, the 24 beds dorm was surprinsingly big enough to give us space. The bedsheets did not seemed really clean and it was difficult... More

The free walking tour pickup at the hostel. However for backpackers it's not great. There was a large school group staying whilst we... More

We stayed in the hostel for a single night between airbnb's, and the staff was lovely, our minor interaction with them was efficient and fine. We stayed in a four bedroom mixed dorm. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable, very very hard, and the pillow was extraordinarily thin and hard to sleep with. The room was also very hot. The most... More

My friend and I decided to stay here because it seemed to have a great reputation, with most of the reviews we read praising the hostel's friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Having spent a night there, I ended up questioning whether I had stayed at the wrong hostel. We arrived at 10, the time we had informed the hostel we... More

This is where i stayed the first time I was in Dublin. The rooms are not the best I've been but the athmosphere is great!! I have really good memories of the days I spent here. I recommend this to young people and backpackers. I hope to be back soon!
