The only parts of this hostel that are not dirty are the breakfast area "the Church" and the foyer/entrance lounge. My room had a strong musty smell to it, stains in the sink and condensation always on the windows. The floor was dirty and the room was in a constant mess. The duvet and pillow also had a musty smell... More

Stayed here sat night 25th July, was attending a large concert in Dublin and on a weekend where other places were charging outrageous prices I do admit I chose this hostel purely because of the price! However After reading other reviews I was pleasantly surprised. The area probably isn't the safest at night but if you keep your wits about... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed in this hostel in late 2013 (it says September 2014 for there were no options for 2013). We were quite surprised to arrive there - it is found on a building that used to serve as a monastery of some kind. Therefore, the building is pretty old and dirty. Our room smelled weird (it might... More

On arrival to Dublin, I had to spend one night in the city before moving to Belfast. Since I was on my own, I booked one night in this hotel which was among the cheapest options available. I was satisfied with what I paid for; got a bed with clean linen, locker to leave my luggage, quite good breakfast as... More

Ive been to this hostel twice. The first time in 2012 we spend 4 nights in a dorm room with 8 beds, which wasnt very good at all. The beds were quite hard and the shared bathrooms were quite nasty. But hey, we were only there for a couple of hours at night, so it wasnt that bad. The second... More

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.
