Don't Book. Stay away. Hostel seemed good at first, decent price and location. However noise from above and below our room made getting to sleep extremely hard. Our room was advertised as having an ensuite however the ensuite was outside of the room and was actually shared with another big room next door and anyone staying in the hostel could... More

My condolences to you and your family. I think it is important to clarify a few items. You stated that 2 members left the group early. However at no time were we informed of this. There was no record in our system, in our handover notes and after speaking to all staff members no one was informed. Working at night... More

Great hostel for the price. The staff was super friendly and even made it a point to get my friends and I all in the same room. They even moved us to a better room when we asked if they could. Walking distance to everything. The only bad thing I would say was the breakfast was slightly disappointing and I... More

The four courts hostel is a great hostel nearby the city centre. It has beautiful watch on the river and the actually Four Courts. We slept in a 12 dorm girlroom and it was very nice and clean and cozy. The bathroom was a bit small, but just fine. The kitchen is very very nice and large. Enough space to... More

My friend and I stayed here over New Year and had a great time. It was comfortable, clean and the staff were really friendly. The location is ideal - we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go (except the airport!). The only issue we had was that we were disturbed at 4am by the noise of the very... More

The Four Courts Hostel is a clean hostel, there is no noise, very friendly staff, and a nice location. I stayed here with 4 friends around new years and we had a very good time. The staff is very helpful. Our room for 6 had a private bathroom which was cleaned every day. We cooked one evening in the shared... More

First of the things I liked about the hostel: the kind of old fashioned interior, the friendly staff, the kitchen area, and of course the great location! Things I did not like: quite small rooms. But hey its a hostel so big rooms aren't expected, it would just have given this hostel the extra star for a perfect hostel. Would... More

Pros: Staff was super friendly and helpful! Check in and out - super quick and simple process. They even had a adaptor/converter for me to charge my phone because I forgot one. Wifi is one of the better ones compared to other hostels. Location is great - 8 min walk to Temple Bar - so you can be close to... More

Really nice hostel, clean in great location. Has everything you need including free continental breakfast. Lovely and helpful staff! Had a great time in Dublin and staying in this hostel improved the experience as we met some lovely people and had a great backpackers pub crawl :)
