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

The hostel by itself's nice, but it's not that much clean. There're two guys in the reception that are nice, Vanya and the one in the night shift. But if you find Sasa, he's always barking and in bad mood. The breakfast was ok. It has a pool table and ping pong. The location's good

I spent there a night with my girlfriend and it was everything good. Not too far from the city center, good price, safe and clean. The staff was prepared and they gave me good hint about what to visit in the city.

Very spacious rooms; seem a little run down. Reception staffed 24 hrs. Keycards are swapped every day. Price is good. Bathrooms are ok, but could be better or cleaner. Lockers inside the room. Location is ok but not excellent (~20 mins walk to center).

The hostel is clean and spacious. The reception staff were very good, quick check in which makes everything easier. My friends and I agreed that the rooms were perfect in size and cleanliness which helps when you're staying more than 1 day. We would happily recommend this hostel.

Huge hostel at walking distance of the city centre. Clean and nice showers. The €2 breakfast is not really worth it IMHO as you can go out and get a very good breakfast for +/- €5. Staff was OK friendly, but props to them for arranging last minute airport pickup.

I travelled as a party of 9 people, stayed in a 10 bed room which was very large, there was 5 bunk beds and nothing special about the room, but exactly what you'd expect for the price you pay.You will need to bring your own towels! Short walk from O'Connell Street where you can catch the coach to/from the airport... More
