Staff are very nice, helpful and can speak in many different languages which was very difficult to find during my stay in London and Paris. Bedrooms are noisy because of the old wood floors and the many people that can sleep in each floor. It is decently clean. They have enough showers and w.c. The breakfast has only bread, jam,... More

After securing some decent flights, we booked for our group to stay at the Dublin International Youth Hostel. The hostel was ideally located near Shelbourne, where we had planned to watch a local sports event. The centre of Dublin was only a short taxi ride too. Our room, which could sleep 6-people, comprised of 3-bunk beds and a private bathroom.... More

The staff was very friendly, and the hostel itself was clean and had a lot of common rooms, but as a young girl traveling alone I wasn't entirely comfortable with the walk back to the hostel at night from the city centre. If you are traveling in a group, this is a great option to save some money, have a... More

Overall good for the price however is 15 20 min walk to temple bar..showers were cold bathrooms not the best...for this price and condition I would book somewhere near temple bar/dame street...had plenty of leaflets/brochures for tours, and plenty of recommendations which is a bonus

The room is basic but OK. The hostel is within walking distance to the city centre, supermarkets and main pick up points for most day tours. If the room is facing the main road, it is quite noisy because buses etc run frequently past. The walls are very thin and you may feel the room vibrating if some guests walking... More

It's a decent hostel. Nothing particularly fantastic or terrible about it. It was a 15-20min walk away from the city centre itself which is grand. The breakfast was also alright with cereals, toast, tea/coffee/milk/juice. A small inconvenience was that the men's toilets/showers were on a different floor from my room but sure it was nothing major.

Nice enough hostel, I liked that it was a little bit off the beaten path but still within a 15-minute walk of everything I wanted (including all of Grafton Street). The church-now-cafeteria is kinda fun, and breakfast is free (always a plus). Did laundry, plenty of outlets, but the showers are those weird ones where you have to hold the... More
