Booked out of a terrible hostel and booked into this gem. The rooms are clean and spacious. Although some of the staff did not understand english so well their service was brilliant especially Ivana. I will def be back there soon and can highly recommend them to anyone

We stayed in a 6-people bedroom. The room was clean and big, but it had the fire exit green light on all night, so the ones sleeping on the top of the bed bunks had some trouble sleeping. We were on the second floor, where there were 2 toilets and 2 showers for men (I guess it was the same... More

I've been travelling Europe for a few weeks, and have seen my share of hostels.. This one by far is the worst. I'm only giving one star because I cant give 0. The wifi was difficult at the best of times, there are so many flights of stairs( would never recommend this hostel for people with luggage like we had).... More

I have stayed here once before and still felt the need to write another review (says a lot). I have stayed here in two different suites over the period of a week, both very accommodating with a small kitchen, living, dining and hot-press area in both. Each room was cleaned to perfection. Towels depended on your length of stay but... More

Cheap hostel. Facilities a bit old but all clean. Bed sheets are clean and the bed is very comfortable. Have most facilities except laundry, but a laundry shop can be found just 4 minutes walk away. I originally booked for a mixed room, but that night I was the only girl and the other boys came in at midnight while... More

Excellent hostel to stay, it is quiet with huge rooms and amazing old building kept in superb conditions. The staff members are really helpful and professional, you meet people from everywhere and everybody behaves well.

Wasn't expecting much as first stay in a hostel. But was surprised with how clean and spacious our room was. Stayed with 8 friends in 2 of the 4 bedroom en-suit, both rooms were basic as expected but clean and we had everything we needed. The lounge area was good for us all to sit together. Location is good close... More

Central location close to connelly stationery and oconnell Street. 24 hour front desk. Clean basic dorms. Friendly staff. Good for a cheap bed in Dublin. Nice having the garden out the back. Not much more to say but need to fill the space!

Is exactly what you will expect for what you are paying for. Close enough from city center (aprox. 8 minutes walk). Safe location, you have an off-licence and a grocery store 1 minute away. Toilets and showers were clean enough. No bed curtains unfortunately so you dont have privacy at all. Remember to bring your own padlock.

My fiancé and I stayed in one of the ensuite rooms. It went far and above our expectations. It was actually a studio apartment (nicer than the ones we would pay rent in at home). There was a small kitchenette and even a washing machine. The double bed was in a small loft overseeing the rest of the apartment. It... More
