This place has a really good social room, nice staff, good kitchen. The bedroom is not so good but it's OK. The toilet is good but the shower is a terrible experience. Despite of this I recommend this place for short stay.

Having enjoyed its pleasant atmosphere and its' staff helpfulness and friendliness, I came back there for Xmas 2014 and Xmas 2015.

I loved my stay in the spire hostel because of the excellent service from the staff they were so helpful, especially the Spanish girl with her giant smile on reception she explained too me where to find numerous places to visit and places too eat. I felt like a pest but she and the rest of staff were more than... More

This hostel is very centrally located and you can walk to anywhere in Dublin from here in under 30 minutes, most attractions/places are approximately 15 minutes away. The staff is friendly and helpful, and there is a 24 hour reception/front desk. The included breakfast is very basic but does the trick. I would not recommend staying on the first floor... More

The Spire Hostel in Dublin is located perfectly. It lies just in the city centre and it's a 5 min walk from Temple Bar. I stayed for 2 weeks before finding an apartment in Dublin. I had the 6 persons dorm first, which was very good. With the 6 you share the bathroom. The second week I stayed in the... More

Big hostel with lots of rooms in the city center close by Temple Bar. The kitchen has everything it needs. Bathrooms are clean. Breakfast included. We will recommend this hostel to anyone willing to visit de the city for a short period of time.

This hostel is located smack bang in the centre of Dublin. The city is quite literally on your doorstep along with everything you could want from shops, restaurants, luas/bus lines and bars and clubs. The staff were very accommodating and made us feel welcome. They were friendly and courteous. The place has a good vibe to it and you feel... More

I can mainly say that the Spire hostel has a good location as its biggest draw. Minutes from O'Connel St. but realize it is over the bridge from Temple Bar District, though very walkable. Otherwise it was a bit of a letdown from the first night when the water ran out! Apparently the watertank was out and it took 20... More
