The hostel is bang in the middle of everything, it's in a great spot! We stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. Stayed in our own 6 bed dorm (3 bunk beds) with our own shower in the room. The room was quiet, clean, tidy, and had security cages under beds for luggage (you bring your own pad lock).... More

I've stayed any many hostels around the world and this was my worst experience. This hostel is larger than others and this creates constant crowds and noise, at all hours of the day and in all parts of the hostel. The clerks are also rude. This isn't to say it was the worst experience I could imagine at a hostel,... More

I loved my experience here, even with the sarcastic humor comments from the receptionists and ridiculous deck of cards they had for us to borrow. The staff was really friendly and helpful, room and bathrooms clean, and wasn't too noisy by any means. I stayed for 6 days and would do it again without a doubt.

Despite being well into my 30's, I love backpacker hostels and Four Courts was one of the best I have stayed in. My friends and I had a 24-hour layover in Dublin and sadly only spent one night in a 4 bed ensuit room. The room was clean and quiet - great for a hostel or even a hotel. The... More

Stayed here for a one night stay with family. 4 adults...4 kids in 8 bed dorm. Handy for many attractions and not far from zoo which was purpose of our visit. Staff great and rooms/belongings secure. Kids loved the concept of everyone staying in same room instead of being split across to several hotel rooms. Will be back. For the... More

I stayed at Four Courts Hostel with 3 friends at the end of August for three nights and we really enjoyed our stay! We stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was a good size and had a clean en-suite bathroom. The reception staff were really helpful and friendly and they knew the area well which was good as we... More

We stayed there for 14 days due to a workshop. it was a really warm and cheer place. An old renovated building with great paintings on the wall, a really nice place to eat and hang out. The receptionists were really helpful and you can find all sorts of things there such as adapters for electrical devices which is really... More

Great hostel with great staff and amenities. Rooms were big, clean and comfortable however bigger pillows would be nice as the ones given you really need two of them. Our 6 bed private faced onto the river which was lovely- especially at night. The extra storage space between the bedroom and bathroom was nice. The bathroom was a good size... More

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...
