I stayed there for 2 weeks and I shared the biggest dorm (16 people). The staff is really easygoing and kind. They always tries to help and answer to all your questiones. You have free wifi in all rooms and at the reception you can use 3 pc for free. The kitchen is situated in the basement the working hours... More

Me and my friends stayed here for five nights, and got our own room. The beds were nice enough, but the sheets were really dirty. Everything else was really simple, and what you expect from a cheap hostel. It has a nice location, really close to O'Connell street and a ten min. walk to Temple bar. Nice and quiet in... More

I stayed in this hostel with a friend while our weekend in Dublin during 3 nights. In our arrival we were greeted promptly, the staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was in the 3rd floor, a lot of stairs with a luggage is not very easy and they don't have lifts. The room was clean and big enough... More

We booked a private room for two people for two nights and when we arrived we saw that our “room” was a suite with bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Since we had many things to see in Dublin we didn’t spend much time there, but we would have liked to do!

Quiet location, near to Dublin centre. Staff is helpful and nice. For low price you get just bed, and in my case (6 beds room en suite) nothing else. For emergency sleep is OK but for longer stay not.

the hostel is very nice, the location is perfect for exploring the centre of Dublin. Really close to Temple Bar so good for going out. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was really big and had plenty of sockets.

Good location, at walking distance within city centre, shops, buses and train stations. Clean toilets and showers, friendly staff. Rooms comfortable, bed ok. There was one minor thing, my bulk bed was a bit broken and it was straightened by a simple rope. The first night I was worried the bed would fall apart but luckily it was quite safe... More

This was our first hostel in our trip. I have to say the worst of the 3 hostels we used. I'll start with the bad things. First the shower was awful, it was either super burning hot or super cold nothing in between so it took me forever to shower. I had a room in the 3rd floor and the... More

Me and my friends booked out a whole 10 bed dorm for NYE. It was incredibly cheap but really clean and bunkbeds comfy. We were right opposite shower block and never had to queue. Water always warm and considering there were 10 of us thats pretty good. Showers powerful too. Not much of an atmosphere but we didnt need this... More

The superior deluxe room we rented ended up being an apartment to our surprise. The finishes were certainly germane with the price, but it was very clean and safe. Even a washing machine! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is traveling as a couple or a small family.
