Thanks for a great stay! Greeted by a friendly, informative guy at the front desk, gave directions to the appropriate bus stop needed to get to Marlay Park for a festival! The dorms where spacious and the cleaned daily and there is also an option to have an all inclusive breakfast for £5 between the 7:00 - 9:00!! Well worth... More

Cheap living! Friendly staff! Awesome location. the number 41 bus is located right outside of the hostel and will take you to the airport. The location can not be beat. You are right in the heart of everything. The Jameson Distillery/Guinness Factory/Christ Church/Temple bar district etc are all within walking distance. If you plan to travel to Dublin, get on...

A really cheap hostel in the middle of the city. Our room were quite dusty, The staff was friendly helpful with everything we needed, like ordering taxis and tours. It's possible to walk to everything you would want to see in the city.

We've stayed at Globetrotters Dublin in November 2013 for 3 nights. The staff was adorable, we arrived in the morning and we could leave our luggage the first and the last day. The public bus to the airport is just in front of the hostel, When we arrived, the bus dropped us 2 min walk from the hostel. It's much... More

So out dated and smelly in bedrooms. Curtains in dorma look like 20 years without seeing a washing machine, shower broken including lock on door, so many bulbs not working making rooms dark, 1 electric socket working between 12 people, breakfast was awful and pricey. In desperate need of complete refurb they should visit Barnacles in Galway same price no... More

A group of 34 travelers from America really imposed on the hostel, but they accommodated for us perfectly. Everyone was nice, helpful, and knowledgeable about the city and the rooms were clean and spacious. I definitely recommend it!

This is so much more than a hostel. A group of us stayed on the May Bank Holiday for two nights and loved it – it started off with such a warm welcome from the chap on reception (I can’t remember his name unfortunately, but he was great throughout our stay!) The hostel is attached to a hotel, but it’s... More

Great location, right near tram stops and main bus/train stations. 5 mins walk from O'Connell Street and Temple Bar. Rooms OK with solid wooden bunk beds. Noisy guests which weren't brought under control by owners. Kitchen disgusting and smelt terrible.

I stayed here over St. Patricks Day weekend with a friend and we were extremely happy with its location. It is right by everything so I never needed to get local transportation because we were able to walk everywhere. One downside is there is only one bathroom for the entire room which made it inconvenient in the morning when everyone... More
