Great little hostel. Arrived at 17:30 on a Friday and check in was speedy. It is literally a 2 minute walk off the bus and it is in a great location. Beds were comfy and the bathroom facilities were adequate for our needs. Good little place to stay for a break in Dublin

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January. Myself and 3 female friends booked a 4 bed dorm and couldn't have been happier! The room was spotless and bathroom really clean. The only downfall was that the lift was out of order and we stayed on the 4th floor... Let's just say the stairs kept us fit!... More

I mainly chose this hostel because of its location (close to the centre, LUAS and airport bus stops). The service was great - the staff was friendly, helpful and always had a smile ready for the customers. The room itself was good; clean and spacious enough and with an en-suite bathroom. Could do with some more wall sockets though. Brilliant... More

The staff was great and friendly. Great position, it's close to LUAS stop. The only black spot: I was alone, i tried to speak with other costumers having breakfast but they keep talking in their own language.

I spent 5 nights at this hostel mid-January 2016. The hostel was very easy to get to, only a minutes walk away from a bus stop from the Airport. The staff were extremely helpful in reccommending tours, museams and the Pub crawl was a laugh! Since I was travelling alone, security is always a big issue for me but I... More
