We enjoyed our trip to Harrington House. The staff was friendly and helpful. They checked us in early. The breakfast was very good. The common areas were clean and comfortable. The price was very good. It was within walking distance of St. Stephens Green, Shopping, Cafes, Trinity College, the National Museums, and other attractions.

A nice, clean and friendly hostel in a convenient position to visit Dublin and easy to reach from the airport with the bus (number 16). I stayed there one night in May in a room on the first floor. It's a hostel, not a five star hotel, but it is clean, friendly and very convenient. The staff were very helpful... More

It is well located, near the city centre and with a bus stop (16 - airport bus) in front! But the room was very small and the hot water was limited to certain times of the day... The beds were confortable and it was very quiet at night. The breakfast was just toasts and cereals.

The hostel was just average. Not really centrally located. A good 20 minute walk from central Dublin. Room was okay - old fixtures and fittings. No hot water during certain times of the day (indicated on bathroom door) which isn't really acceptable. Breakfast choices very limited - only toast and cereal. Free internet available although should have been time limited... More

We stayed at Harrington House Hostel for 4 nights in June 2012 and enjoyed our stay there. The hostel is very easy to find, especially when arriving from Dublin airport as bus 16 takes you right in front of the hostel. It is located in a very quiet area whilst being very close to all the main attractions (10 minutes... More

Staff is friendly and helpful, location is good but rooms are quite small and dark and the bathroom facilities are quite unconfortable, but I noticed that this is a general problem in Ireland's hostels. Also the space between the bunks is not large enough.

Nice homely place, quiet. Beds are narrow, so should take separate beds not so called twin. Very nice was the bus stop, and one bus taking from airport to location, near to city center so we walked a lot. Free bicycles at guesthouse was nice touch.
