This was not the cleanest hostel or with the best accommodations, but to be fair it was very cheap. The location is great and very close (walking distance) into the downtown area. I think the smaller room you book, the better quality of stay. I definitely do not recommend mixed gender rooms. The staff were helpful when needed. The wifi... More

This place is clean and ideal if you want to go party in Dublin. If you want to hang around common rooms its always packed because it is the home of the very popilar Paddywagon tours. However it is cheap ,basic and clean.

I was nervous given some questionable reviews but my room was nice and clean and had a good shower. The free airport shuttle is excellent and it is really close to town. Also if you stay a number of nights you get a free Kilkenny tour with Paddywagon which was excellent.

One of our party booked this place without asking the whole group so I was just hoping the bad reviews wouldn't turn out to be so true. They did. The booking system is all mixed up, the hostel didn't reply to several emails, then on arrival there was even more confusion with allocating wrong rooms. The room was tidy with... More

Worst hostel I have ever been. Its a place for people to live in a cheap price not for travelers. People in my room were there for mounts,the place were really messy, and the room is really small. It doesn't have a locker, the wi-fi is only in the reception, that closes after 10pm. You have to reactivate your card... More

I made it to Paddy's Palace first in November 2012, as a solo traveler and remember it as a great place. The atmosphere was always vibrant, and I also made quite some friends there.This is why, I recommended it to my friend when both of us went to Dublin in November 2014. I'd been in a 8-bed dorm before (on... More

Definetely NOT a palace. It smells a bit, is falling apart but it's clean and CHEAP. If you want something nice, go elsewhere! This was totally tolerable for a night, though. For ten euros in Dublin you are unlikely to find better...

Spent 3 nites here recently and found it con ident with great atmosphere in the reception area. The free airport shuttle was a winner because we had an early fight so caught the 4 am shuttle !!.Its clean and was perfect for exploring Dublin walking to all the big sites which were within 10 minutes to Trinity. Thanks to helpful... More

Stayed here with a friend for a night in October. We had a free night from a former employer. Great location, beds weren't bad but those were the only okay parts. The bathrooms were a nightmare and neither of the showers were working. The wifi also did not work for the majority of our stay. Have been to other Paddys... More

It was a very chaotic boastful place that bad no respect for there guests the rooms rooms were stupidly small. We woke up in the morning and there were people sleeping on the stairwell landing. There seem to be a lot of arrogant long term stayers mostly from Croatia who have little respect for fellow travelers especially woman. I would... More
