This has to be the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Everything from the dorms to the kitchen were squeaky clean each day. Reception was friendly and had no problem printing my boarding pass for me. Book direct through their website so you get breakfast free instead of having to pay 3 euros each morning. It's a little pricey for a...

I only stayed here one night. I arrived late, the girl at reception was was very nice, friendly and helpful. The lounge and kitchen area were spotless as were my room and bathroom. The location is great, just a few steps from the air coach stop and o Connell Street. I would stay here again.

Great hostel! The staff was super friendly, the facilities clean and the atmosphere good. I booked a mixed shared room for four people and it had a private bath for circa 20 euros per night. The hostel was also conveniently located to most tourist attractions. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a group of 17 people staying for 2 nights and were treated well. The luggage room is a little small for such a large group (who also traveled with some suitcases that were silly large!) but the staff was kind and helpful. The location is perfect to public transportation and the city centre.

Had a great stay here- the air coach drops you off on O'Connell street and it's roughly a 5 min walk from there and close to the ha'penny bridge. Excellent location and the breakfast was so good as well! For only €3 so I certainly recommend. Alan was our tour guide and he was great (thanks Alan!). It's next to...

I stayed with two other friends on a Thursday night in the 6 bed female dorm. It was clean and great value for money at around €54 for all three of us. The staff were helpful and the location was brilliant (so central). There were some free beers in the common room that night and other travelers seemed friendly and...

This hostel Is centrally located near the most popular areas to visit in Dublin. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were cleaned every morning. They have a big common area and kitchen where I met other solo travelers. It's also the location for some of the nightly social events they plan throughout the week. I stayed in a...

This hostel is located in the city center, so you don't need to spend much money for transportation. They have quite big common area (kitchen & living room) and they also offer free dinner event in every week. The room and toilet were clean. But the room is little bit smaller than other hostels.

Stayed here for 4 nights and was really happy with the hostel. Excellent location close to everything with a great staff. Everyone was always really friendly and helpful. Dorm beds were comfortable and had lights and plugs for each bed. Really nice big common kitchen where breakfast is served in the mornings and nice cozy, common areas to hang out...
