DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOSTEL!!!!!! When we first arrived, they gave us keys to ANOTHER COUPLE'S ROOM!!!!!! Had they not seen us in the hallway, we would have let ourselves into their private room. Since we had valuables in the room, we requested that there be NO housekeeping. Meaning no one in the room besides us. They entered our... More

I was really skeptical about staying here after reading the reviews but found it hard to pass up the free airport shuttle so did it anyways. I booked for a 10 person co-ed dorm for 1 night but ended up in a 6 person for the same price on arrival day. I stayed in room 8 which was on the... More

I'm not one who usually writes good or bad reviews, but after my stay here I feel compelled to write this review. I would first like to start off by saying that the staff at the hostel desk were wonderful, especially Darren. They do the best they can with what the have, and tried to make us feel as comfortable... More

My friend and i stayed at this hostel for 2 nights while in dublin and only paid €10 for each night (8 bed dorm). The dorm rooms are fairly big, the beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The noise wasnt too bad considering the location and we didnt have any problems with the other people in the room.... More

The cost of the hostel is brilliant and I guess you get what you pay for, so beggers can't be choosers I suppose. But the staff here, I assume like many hostels aren't paid and live here... and the attitude shines out that this is the case! I would pay a little extra and stay up the road a bit,... More

This hostel is so central and great value for money with a free airport shuttle and day tour. It is a bit noisy because it is so cetral but clean and cheap. The previous night we paid double the money in the temple bar. Full of backpackers also as it is belong to paddywagon tours.

I spend one night in this fire trap before leaving on a tour of the country. The tour was wonderful but they need to pull this place down and start over. The noise was from the tram and train as well as traffic. The room was tiny for the two of us. The internet was useless and only available in... More

I stayed at Paddy's Palace for 3 nights in July 2014 over a weekend. It was only my second time in a hostel, but after paying £45 for 3 nights in an 8 bed dorm room, i expected something good. £45 might sound reasonable, but compared to other hostels in the same area, it was at the expensive end. Unfortunately... More
