After staying 5 nights in a private dorm I couldn't be happier to get into my own bed for a good nights sleep. I didn't expect much but the noise at night was unbearable. You could hear the hand dryer from the toilet in our room and also everytime someone came into the hallway from the stairs. The long term... More

This hostel refused to accept us after a booking was completed through Booking.com... because we are over age 45 Their rude and insulting response strongly suggests poor customer service. There is nothing on their website or on booking.com regarding this discrimination based on age. We did not find this out until after they had our credit card information and a... More

The staff were so accommodating and helpful. Extremely friendly!! Location- excellent! Very close to oconnell street and other modes of transport. Shuttle- can be arranged to airport for only 6euro. Rooms/storage- storage supplied if requested but i dont think its in your dorm room (i never bothered as it would cost more). Bunk beds in dormitory and comfy, however there... More

Avoid this place at all costs! I've never stayed in a more disgusting place in my entire life. The beds were covered in hair and the sheets were stained. I ended up sleeping with my jacket as a blanket because the comforters they provided were in worse shape than the sheets. And there is an EXIT sign that lights up... More

We usually opt for a private room when we can but as it was paddys week we could only afford this 20 person dorm. Stayed in dorms before so know the crack but try to get private rooms when on short trips. Room was pretty decent and didn't feel as big as it was. Not as noisy as you would... More

Hosting at Spire Hostel was very nice. We stayed at a private double room which was very warm and confortable. It was a good size, really clean and colourful. Just perfect ! We were very surprised that there is a huge social life in the hostel but we could had our total privacy. So it's very nice for people who... More

Stayed here for one night in march 2015. Private double room. Have to say we were very pleasantly surprised.Staff were very pleasant,polite and helpful. Room was a good size, spotlessly clean with complimentary bottles of water.Prime location just off o connell street. We would definately stay here again.

It was the worst hostel of all times. The bathroom was in a terrible condition. Our room door was not closing properly. The next room's door was opening and closing all night long, making noise. You should not visit that hostel.

The location of the Spire hotel, the staff and from what I saw of the place, the cleanliness are the positives about this place, but don't expect to get any sleep! I was in a 6 bed dorm which I thought would be a better chance of getting some sleep, but no. It only takes one, and that one snoring... More

What disappoints me the most is the bed on my 3rd night. I changed from a 12 bed mixed dorm to a 8 bed female dorm. There was only one spot available which is the top bunk. The scariest part is the BUNK BED DID NOT HAVE SIDE RAILINGS and my bunk bed was right in the middle of the... More
