Stayed here for two nights while on a recent visit to Dublin with a friend. Didn't pay very much for a two bed shared room so we weren't expecting much from the hostel. This was definitely the best way to think as you wouldn't be let down on arriving. Positives: The hostel is in a very good location for sites... More

Upon arriving at the hostel after completing a 9 Day Paddywagon Tour, I was asked to complete the payment for my room before being given a key to for a room in the building next door. I then had to carry my bags without any assistance up three flights of stairs to then realise the key I was provided did... More

I stayed two nights at the hostel since we took a tour from them, and I have to say I regret staying there. It is a great location, not far from the bus station, not far from the tram system either and you can walk to all the restaurants and sights from there. The rooms are okay, and the sheets... More

Out of the seven hostels in which I stayed during my trip I liked this one the least. On a positive note, the beds are fine and it does have a good lobby and is within walking distance of a ton of tourist attractions. But my experience started off on a bad note when the manager yelled at the staff... More

Paddy's Palace has a great marketing team; they have hostels all over Ireland, and their day trips and overnight tours appear be a great value for what you get. But read reviews. The guides are knowledgeable, charismatic, and funny, but making sure you get the full value for your money is not the company's first priority. And the hostels are... More

I was here in Summer 2014 for a short stay with my family. The room was comfortable, though our electronics had problems with the power outlets. The hostel is close to transit lines and to major tourist attractions without being too close to the hustle and bustle and noise. Reception staff was very courteous and overall we enjoyed our stay.

I was given a room at the basement just below the lobby. It was really noisy until really late at night, you can hear people's footsteps just above you. There is only one bathroom and one toilet for girls, that is also used by the visitor of Paddywagon tour, so it is not really a decent toilet. The water heater... More

We came to this hostel right after staying at the Paddy's Palace in Belfast so we didn't really expect much, what we didn't expect though was that it was a little worse. It was me and another friend and we stayed in a 4 person dorm with shared bathroom. Upon check in the girl behind the desk completely ignored us... More

The dorm room was clean but very small, the shower was poor, had to keep pressing the button down. We had to check in at 1pm which was bad as we arrived in Dublin with massive bags at about 8am. The staff were nice however and the airport shuttle is useful! It was also in a great location and cheap... More
