I’m really satisfied with my experience in this hostel. It has a very good value for money. Convenient location close to Temple bar, the Guinness Warehouse that are basically the places to be in Dublin. Actually everything is at 5/10 mins walking distance: O Connell street, the castle, Trinity College and many convenient shops like Tesco and even Lidl! Rooms... More

This Hostel lies in the very heart of Dublin, and really close to some very cool pubs, as well as the Guinness Storehouse, and Trinity College f.e. Staff was friendly, and gave advice when we needed it, and even gave us little yellow cards, to identify ourselves, when we wanted to enter the hostel, even though we never had to... More

We had very much fun staying at the Four Courts Hostel. Location is excellent, Guinness Storehouse nearby, 5 minute walk from Temple Bar and yet quiet! Free decent breakfast, would be good if it was on a bit later however. Wi-Fi only works on the ground floor, didn't bother us too much though. Great facilities, we had "great craic" ,as... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but reliable. Good clean showers. It is a short 10 minute walk for the hub of Dublin and on the side closer to the Guinness factory and Gaol. It is in an area with a lot of shelters, so be wary on late night walks.

People complain about the drug rehab center next door. People also act like they've never seen such a place before. First off, the people next door do not bother anybody. They just stay outside to smoke and do what they need to do. I was never bothered by anybody next door. This is a very safe hostel. I stayed in... More

It is a good place to stay for 2 or 3 nights. It is reasonable cheap, you have wifi and breakfast included (although I did not make use of the latter), dorms with not too many people together and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are okay and so are the bathrooms generally Speaking. It is a hostel after... More

The staff was super cool and helpful the building is funky and fun, the security/system is good. the free breakfast is a free breakfast and the rooms are okay. Bathrooms are dirty and don't get cleaned well. There are barley any outlets in the rooms, only wifi in the lobby. Right next to the homeless shelter, but not an awful... More

I spent only one night there. The localisation is actually very good, only a 7min walk away from Temple Bar and other nightlife spots. The downside was the room and the bathroom: both were very dirty. The bathroom was not cleaned for the 24h I stayed there and the room was extremely dusty. The beds were comfortable, at least. I...

I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights in July. Ideally located - around a 10 minute walk to the Temple Bar part of the city. We stayed in a 4-bed dorm with an en-suite. When we arrived, the reception staff were very lovely and helpful especially when explaining how to get to and from the car park. Our... More

I am not in the habit of leaving bad reviews but i felt compelled to in this case. Myself and 6 friends came to Dublin for the weekend to attend a concert at the point. We left booking accommodation a little late so i took to ringing hostels to see if any could accommodate a group of our size. Rang... More
