My daughter and I went to Ireland for the first time last year and we stayed at Paddy's Palace and it was the Greatest!! I know people want to stay at 5 star hotels when they are on vacations but when you are going on the cheap I say stay at Paddy's. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the... More

Let's talk about the room first. A 10 bed dorm with shower and space is cheaper than a 8 bed dorm from about 12m² with only 2 electricity sockets. Logical. Don't try and find the wifi in your room: you can only have it from the reception, where consequently, everyone is on their phone rather than socialising. The best is... More

The 3 nights that I spent in this hostel were an awful experience! we were fooled by their website - where the hostel looks like a really nice place, full of youth and joy, but in reality it's nothing like. The rooms are really small and only one socket for 10-12 people, that is hidden under the beds. The bathrooms... More

We took a tour from Paddy's Place to Cork Ireland. We visited the Blarney Stone, The Titan Museum, and the Cathedral. There was not much time allocated to eat but we had the opportunity to see a lot of sites. The tour bus driver was fun and knowledgeable about the sites.

Horrible and dump kitchen, the vapor of the pan was so that it would rain in the kitchen. Lousy. No wifi in the room, but just in the hall although it did not work properly ever. The worst staff I have ever met..very rude and ill-mannered. One of two showers and one of two bathrooms (for almost 20 people) have... More

This hostel is good if you are taking a paddywagon tour. It is one of the pick up points and is very central to all the nightlife in Dublin. The beds are nice and clean and there is a great FREE airport shuttle. A real winner for any budget traveller..!!

Stayed here before my paddywagon tour and loved how central it was. There was good security and a big kitchen. Its cheap and also has a free shuttle to and from the airport. For a good deal i can say this is really value and O Connell St is 300mts away.

Paddy's Palace is clean and cheap. The location is great, very close to everywhere in Dublin. They offer a free airport shuttle, free tour to Kilkenny and free toast and jam for breakfast. Great value for money. However do not expect a 3* hotel when you book and pay for a hostel!

The security it good. Common lounge available. Kitchen clean but old. It's an old building and we there in feb/mar so it was cold. bathrooms clean. Beds and room clean. Airport shuttle worth it. It's a decent place. Stayed twice. Would recommend
