Helpful staff but hostel conditions not adequate to the price. Constant problems with hot water and water pressure - we had one night without water! Our room was in the cellar, one window was broken so it was freezing in the room...unfortunately I can't recommend this place..

The staff here are friendly and the location is central to everything worth seeing in the city but the hostel itself is fairly basic. The rooms were cold and the WiFi only works in the lobby. The front desk also wrote down that I didn't pay a deposit on my room key when I actually did so I also lost... More

The hostel itself is very nice, but there are a couple security issues (one being no cameras). I had my laptop stolen from my room when I stayed here, as I didn't have a free locker to use to put my stuff in. Other than that the staff are lovely, and it is clean.

Paddy's Palace isn't a great place to stay. I only gave it 2 stars because the staff is friendly and helpful and the beds aren't horrible. There are two different buildings- so the wifi that is available every where is misleading - it's only available in the first building, which houses the common room, and that room closes at 11,...

My four friends and I stayed here in early November on a mid-week break to Dublin. We booked a six person female room even though there was only five of us, but I'm glad we did! There are two buildings to Paddy's Palace, the black door which has larger dorm rooms and the red door which has smaller rooms. We... More

One thing i like is the free shuttle ride from the airport to their hostel, and its every 2 hours.. This is my very first time experiencing a hostel... The place in itself isn't bad, they have complimentary breakfast in the morning which is nice. I don't know if its just me but their shower didn't have hot water. Not... More
