I stayed there twice in differend conditions, so I will make a 1st commentary , then separate descriptions, and draw an average for the marks. I came with three friends of mine, with just 8 days between the 2 nights. The hostel is conveniently located ifyou wish to visit the Guinness factory, Christ Church Cathedral... It is a 15 minute...

Stayed here for a few days in Feb 2014, it was a great hostel close to temple bar. The staff were helpful. Would stay again here. The hostel was a mix of people and was great when the rugby was on. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

As a tradition we are coming to Dublin on a yearly basis travelling to new places across Ireland. This time we picked as a hostel the four courts where we stayed 3 nights, the overall impression is that it is just an average hostel, below some more details. Positive aspects: - Staff: super friendly and helpful whenever needed (big 5... More

Pretty average hostel. There were lots of large (school?) groups when I visited, so it was a bit hard to meet people. The hostel was clean, offered basic amenities and breakfast, decent rooms. Beds were so-so. There was lots of space in my 4-bed mixed room. It was pretty quiet in this hostel when I was trying to sleep. The... More

Pretty average hostel with all the amenities you would expect but nothing much more. The place could do with a renovation, and there didn't seem to be many activities run by the hostels on Friday and Saturday. We were a group of 4 friends, so we stayed in a four bed mixed dorm. There were lock-able cages to store stuff... More

My husband and I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm. The first night our other roommates were great. They were respectful, quiet and friendly. The next roommate we got was a loud obnoxious drunk who yelled at me when I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. He was rude and disrespectful and... More

It was our first time in Dublin and my sister and I picked this hostel for location. It is very easily accessible by the Airlink bus from the airport, as the stop is just a minute away from it. We stayed in a 2-bed room, which was quite nice and had its own bathroom. The room was clean, though a... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly, funny staff, the free breakfast, and the great facilities. It has a good atmosphere and location. I only stayed one night but I felt at home! It is in a good area of Dublin.
