Visited for two nights with family. Was unsure of what to expect as it was the first time we had stayed in a Hostel. Very friendly staff on arrival. Told us everything we needed to know. Room was easy to find despite what other reviews may of said, just follow the signs. Kitchen was nice and clean with a good... More

The location of the hostel is very nice. Only about a 5-10 minute walk to the start of the free walking tours and to any tour buses you plan on taking around the country. The staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room. They included the pull out lockers underneath the bed. The bathroom and... More

Negatives....we stayed in a 4 per private room....it was a crazy tight fit to say... More

I stayed here for two non consecutive nights. The first night was in a room with no windows and a skylight which opens up. Not recommended for people who are claustrophobic. The second night was in a room that was relatively bigger than the shoebox that I was in the first night. What was weird though was the the bed... More

I was duped by the high marks here. This is an extremely low budget operation at grossly inflated prices. The room was ridiculously tiny,as was the bathroom. No extras of any kind, including no towels. The beds were tiny bunk beds. Our one window opened to a trash-filled mishmash of junk, and I was seriously afraid to open the windows... More

Stayed here with my two children, (aged 12 and 7) We stayed in room 4, which had two bunk beds and a bathroom. The room was basic but clean, the beds had plugs/usb sockets, the bathroom was okay, great shower pressure. Towels weren't provided. Breakfast was included in our room rate, and consisted of cereals, milk, orange or apple juice,... More

The location was the best part of this hostel in my opinion, it was in the heart of city center and within a brief walking distance of everything that I wanted to see. The front desk staff were also very kind, and there was some sort of free "event" every night (food or drink) hosted by the hostel. The Cons... More

Economical hotel near Trinity College and the bar district. We traveled with two adults and two teenagers. Our room had two bunk beds, a chair, and a small table. The toilet was a bit hard to flush and the bathroom needed some renovating but water pressure was good. The bath towels were $7 each with a $10 deposit. Wifi worked... More

Had a very brief stay here overnight with 7 of my friends. We paid €42 each for a one night stay. We got 2 keys from reception which was very handy between 8 people! We had a room to ourselves (4 bunk beds). Very clean & well laid out. Delighted to discover we had 2 bathrooms- smaller one had a... More
