This hostel is a good place to stay if you want to do some pub crawls and such. Clean facilities and price is great if you book online and during special deals. A little walking distance to Temple bar and such, but if you're backpacking, that's piece of cake. Highly recommend.

Another excellent stay, 4 years apart. Ensuite single rooms are great and excellent facilities for price. There is even a cinema on site, games room and shared sauna with Isaacs Hostel. Saturday night barbeque on 4th floor was not available though. Recommend the free walking tour each day.

Arriving to find that they couldn't actually give us the same room all three nights and we would have to do a kabuki dance every morning was enough. They were nice about it, because they had to be, but for the price I would have stayed at a place without screaming people in the halls. The room is ok-half the... More

I would definitely recommend this hostel. This only downside is the noise coming from the trains (railway station just nearby). If you don't mind sleeping with earplugs you'll be just fine cause the hostel is otherwise pretty great!

This hostel is amazing! The front desk will tell you anything you need to know about staying in Dublin. The whole hostel has a great feel to it and they always play awesome music downstairs. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. This is my favorite place by far! 100% recommend this place for all ages. What a... More

Thanks for your review . Our guests are mainly young but we do welcome families. Sorry if it was noisy during your stay,we do ask our guests to be quiet between 11pm and 7am out of consideration and we always intervene if needs . Glad you liked us otherwise More
