I feel really bad giving a poor rating because the two guys at the front desk were super cute, friendly and helpful and I really wanted to like this hostel. However, my time there was less than amazing. Our shower was clogged and was not able to be fixed until the next day (to be fair, the cute boy at... More

Stayed for one night in May in 4 bed dorm. Room was very clean, nicely decorated, along with a really nice ensuite bathroom and other things like a wardrobe etc. I think 30 euro per person is a lot for a hostel, but it was more like staying in a budget hotel so I feel the price was acceptable. Breakfast... More

Just to be very clear, this inn is designed for the backpacker, not for someone looking for a 4-5 star hotel. However, if we came back to Dublin for cheap, this would be the only place we'd go. 1) Extremely clean. 2) Extremely safe. 3) Close to downtown Dublin and everything you'd want to see. We were able to walk... More

The staff are very friendly, helpful and approachable. Great value for money. Lots of events organised-many free of charge. The only letdown was that the rooms were a bit too warm. Overall, a very nice experience.

I really think with this hostel it's who your roommates are and what room you picked. I would say don't pick a 12 bedroom room with only one bathroom. The comforter was a bit gross, the wi-fi was only downstairs but that didn't bother me. They didn't have any place to lock your things in, in your room so you... More

The rooms were nice. Didn't stay long in the hostel as I was just in Dublin on a stopover but the staff were nice. Bed was good, noise wasn't too bad and the shared bathroom was good. I was able to get a little breakfast before leaving (even though it was before 7:30 am, grasp!!)

Everything was amazing.The people, the free breakfast, Wi-Fi (actually works on first floor). the only thing that should be different...the toilets should be in a different room than the shower. This was a popular place, so be prepared to make new friends, everyone was so friendly.

We happened to stay when there was, what seemed to be, a very large group of 13-15 year old German school kids. They took up the common rooms most of the time which definitely killed the vibe. The rooms are huge, no lockers in the rooms though. Staff are friendly. I would stay closer to the Temple Bar area next... More

Great hostel! Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and the bathroom in our room looked like aaa hotel! There was even a tv! The staff had a lot of suggestions and were able to help us along our way. The hostel was a little far away but definitely manageable. Only problem we had was our keys never worked so we... More
