There are some pluses: it is quite cheap and you have breakfast included and linen as well. The staff is nice but not so helpful (when I asked for directions to a specific place in Dublin I heard that most of buses go in that diraction, that's it). It is not clean (the bathrooms are acceptable but not nice and... More

Hostel has a nice history and facilities are a testament to past glory and constitute major potential for the future. Breakfast is ok for the price, but I do recommend visitors to get e.g. some fruit (that is a more general problem in the Isles). Early check-in (11:30) is rare but much appreciated policy. Unfortunately, overall, this was one of... More

The staff at this hostel was outstanding. Very friendly and very helpful. The included breakfast is meager: three cereals, three types on bread, assorted jams and butter. The location from the biggest tourist stops is quite far, something like 1.5miles if I remember correctly. But it was a very short ride from the airport and the taxi only cost €20.... More

This youth hostel was our final stop before we got back to Belgium. We had walked the Wicklow Way the week before. We could sleep all together (9) in one room. Clean rooms with simple but fine bunk beds. We had to add one extra bed. That one was less comfortable. Clean showers.

We barely were in the hostel except to sleep so we didn't have any bad experiences. Make sure to bring a lock for your stuff though because our stuff was rummaged through. A more local neighborhood away from tourist traps. DO DUBLIN FREE WALKING TOURS WITH PETER!!!! Can not rave enough about him and his company. Showed us all the... More

I thought the place was really great. Clean beds, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The hostel itself is less than a 10 minute walk into the city centre and is also very reasonable. Don't pay attention to the bad reviews

Arrived here on 18/5/15 and left within the hour. Dirty, smelly hovel. This place is full of drunks and junkies no place for travellers. I sat on one of the beds for no more than 5 minutes and was bitten by some sort of bug! Asked for our money back but only got 75 euros of the 180. The staff... More

Very cheap accommodation with a modest free breakfast. The hostel is quiet a way from the town centre and any nightlife. Wifi is rubbish, the toilets and showers are disgusting, and the sheets on my bed were well used shall we say. Noise is also a problem.

The hostel is pretty standard. Just far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is also a lot of non English speaking people there, whig is fine, but seeing as I am traveling solo, it would've been nice to be able to meet more people who spoke my language. Overall, clean and fairly friendly. Showers are far... More

Cleaning is a real issue when it comes to the Toilets and showers. Rooms were OK. The best thing about this place was the breakfast which was included in the price. People were friendly and the common areas were OK.
