We had a fantastic stay here. It is in the most amazing location and the staff were very helpful. The one small issue we did have is that our room smelt but that was an outside problem. Our favourite bar was called the Quays which is about 2 mins walk. I would definitely recommend getting the bus to the hostel...

The hostel has a great location. Complete breakfast in the morning. Very clean and the staff was excellent. The space in the room for ten is a little bit small but it was fine. Just beside temple bar, we stayed from monday to wednesday so there wasn't so much noise.

It is right near the temple bar, so it would be noisy at night, suitable for people who don't mind sleeping with noises. Great location, easy to go everywhere! Really nice travellor around and the atmosphere of kitchen area is cozy. The only thing I didn't like was the shower.

Well it has a very good location and all the internet reviews are very positive and by in large true. Just a pity I did not live up to it I think --- I am getting too old for this. So although I would not return, I certainly would recommend it to much younger partying souls! I have discovered I...

I have stayed in both a shared bedroom and a double room. Definitely the best located hostel in Dublin and I can't put a finger on it. Nice staff, clean rooms and nice with free breakfast. Definitely coming back!

The location and the price are excellent,but the rooms are smalls and soundproofing to sleep,and the breakfast was very simple. The service and the cleanliness was correct. Good hostel for a weekend but not for a three or more days in Dublin.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel . As we are located in the heart of Temple Bar we do get a certain amount of street noise. Unfortunately this is completely out of our control but we do offer free ear plugs for light sleepers. We hope you enjoyed your time in Dublin and hope to see...

Perfect location within seconds of Temple Bar! The atmosphere and people in the hostel were less than desirable. Maybe it was because of the time of year, but I did not have fun with anyone from the Hostel. Thankfully I was able to make friends from outside the Hostel who made my trip to Ireland a great experience.

Everything very nice, very kind and friendly staff. The 24h reception was perfect 'cause we took the last flight :) The rooms were clean and you have a kind of cage to keep your belongings safe. Perfect location next to temple bar in the city centre, also near to the key bus stations in order to go to the airport...

Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. We were a group of 9 girls in an 8 bedded room. Location is central, step outside and you are right in Temple bar. Atmosphere was fab with lots of drinks and laughs in communal areas. Staff were great, booking us a taxi, offering us late checkout, providing space to hold our...

We stayed here a few years ago, but doesn't seem that long ago. The location is perfect, right in temple bar, beside temple bar pub. The staff were more than helpful, especially Daisy. There were 4 of us in a private room, which was kinda small but clean. We only slept in the room so it didn't really matter. The...
