The hotel is good for the budget price. The staff are nice and there was free parking for us. There is a problem with the showers, a little cold for me, but for the price we paid it was not too bad for the city of Dublin.

Ireland has many wonderful hostels, this is not one of them. The rooms were so cold and poorly maintained it was very depressing to stay in. The room had mould all down one wall, a broken window with wind howling in, the shower cubicle was made from disparate parts and the shower head which was badly broken and 'fixed' with... More

Other than the cold showers that you have to hold the button on to get water... The rest was pretty good, cheap. Breakfast standard for the price you pay. Beds and rooms tidy. I do assume hot water comes with any price.

Everything about this place is quite average and therefore I would say usually that 3 stars would only be fair. However, the showers were extremely cold. (I don't expect them to be steaming hot but they were freezing cold to the point that it wasn't bareable). They were also covered in wet tissue paper which knocked me sick. I appreciate... More

This was my first hostel experience and ended up staying 4 nights. This hostel isn't located in the heart of downtown, about a 15 minute walk to main sites. However, there are a lot of local restaurants and churches near by and I paid under 20 Euro per night. The mixture of guests included 20-something backpackers to families (so don't... More

Overall, a good hostel for travel on a budget. The price was excellent, about 8 Euro/Night for an 8-bedded room (shared bathrooms). Excellent position, about 15 minutes' walk from the center of town and the main attractions. Public buses to/from the airport stop at 5 minutes from the hostel, take about 45 minutes to get there and cost 2.90EUR/person. Alternatively,... More

been searching a cheap hostel to stay in Dublin. we arrived late around 1am midnight and the reception was still open but it is way better to inform them earlier. despite reading some bad comments about the shower, I found it really okay and the toilets are clean and not smelly. breakfast is free with bread and cereal, make sure...
