Not bad for a hostel although slightly disappointing. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dublin central hostel for a weekend break and stayed in room 3 a private en suite room. The room itself was very pleasant although situated between a laundry room the reception and the smokers area which makes for quite a noisy location. In addition the... More

We spent this past New Year's Eve in Dublin staying for four nights at this hostel. We had a double room with a private bathroom which was very clean and we also got complimentary towels and free breakfast. The staff is friendly and very welcoming. As soon as we arrived the manager, Ian, explained us everything about Dublin and gave... More

This place is really great. It's cheap and I guess that's what attracted us the most. It's cheap, but they offer a lot -- it's located 5 minutes from city center, you get breakfast for free, wifi and the hostel is really clean. The staff is nice and very helpful. It's close to the city center, but because of its... More

I stayed in a private suite for 2 night and cannot wait until my next visit. The staff was so friendly and the room was wonderful ! It really felt like a home away from home . The price was incomparable and it was less than a ten minute walk to Temple Bar . All around an excellent experience.

The staff at the hostel are very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the conversations that we had with some of the part-time staff members. The location is close to the city center. It took us between 15-25 minutes to get to Trinity college. The kitchen was also well stocked and the staff did an excellent job with maintaining a... More

Just a five minutes walk away from O'Connell St (but 15-20 Min to Temple Bar area), but: Surrounding is not very nice, a bit creepy... I wouldn't want to be outside there after dark. Plus, the street is very busy, several busses pass by and it was very loud in the room after 6 am (no soundproof windows, of course).... More

Just returned from a three night, four day trip in Dublin, staying at the Dublin Central Hostel- Dublin and the hostel did not disappoint! Okay, pros; -Fantastic location; yes, it's not slap bang in the middle of Temple Bar so it will be a little walk back or short taxi ride in the evenings (we paid 7 euros for our... More

Sure, it's a hostel and so one cannot expect the same standard as staying at a hotel. Having said that there are still some basic things that one should be able to demand, such as clean and quite rooms. Unfortunately this was not the case when it comes to TDCH. The good thing was that the location. Quite close to... More
