I really liked this hostel, the staff were friendly and helpful. My only complaint is not having any lockers in the girls only room, and because the door does not lock automatically no one locks the door. . . so it really isn't all that secure. I just locked up my bags and didn't stress about it (I don't travel... More

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights on the top floor; private room with a double bed. The city noise woke us up a few times but you can't beat the price. It's a good walking distance from most things but we enjoy that sort of thing. Considering the prices in Temple Bar this place is worth going a... More

A great place to spend a few nights for a football trip. Natalia and Orlagh on the reception were so hospitable and welcoming and had time for a laugh. Would definitely come back! Friendly place overall.

Very good location, close to everything. Older building with the charm that comes with that sort of thing. Staff was very helpful with directions to everything you might need to get around. Breakfast offered was sufficient to get one going in the morning. WiFi was available, but we were between the floors the transmitter was on and it did not... More

Let's begin with the pros: the hostel is near the city centre. Its about a 10-15min walk. The staff is friendly and helpful. The negativs: the room was small and looked like a cellar. It was really hot like in a boiler room and there was just a very little window. It was quite tidy, but we heard every step... More

I stayed here at the DCH as my first stop through Ireland (and first ever hostel). It was a great experience equipped with everything needed. The rooms had lots of space to accommodate 8 guests, and bathrooms were clean. The hostel also has shared spaces for guests to mingle and a kitchen, though I didn't take advantage of these during...

I was very impressed with the hostel. It was a reasonable price for a great location. The hostel provides a lot - free towels, free WiFi, free printing of boarding passes, free breakfast - it had everything I needed. The rooms were comfortable and not too crowded. The staff was exceptionally friendly and I felt safe and comfortable there. If... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The receptionists were very helpful, the hostel was reasonably clean and quiet. The breakfast was simple but really all you need and also they offer some discounts for a full Irish breakfast at the cafe next door which if pretty handy. We booked the whole room and we thought it's a great... More

We few in on the red-eye, and we expected to have to mill around for hours waiting for check-in time. However, the desk guy (I forget his name) buzzed us in and sent us immediately to our room so we could rest and freshen up! We came down, and he spent a lot of time orienting us to the city,...

We had 2 nights in Dublin coming off a red eye. Ian, the receptionist on duty and Captain of the Ship, let us check in early and had upgraded our room based on availability and to give us a better view. The room was quite spacious for 2 (had a double and a bunk bed). En suite bath nice touch... More
