Good location - directly across the street from the no. 16 bus pick-up, which goes to the airport and the major intercity bus stops. Great value for money - low priced and simple. Adequate breakfast, clean room, hot water, wifi, free bike rentals, TV in room, DVDs available for free. Nothing fancy, but everything you need.

Location is good, architecture of the house is charming, room small but with a private bathroom and a gorgeous view to St. Kevin”s curch, basic breakfast, nice staff. On the downside: narrow schedule of warm water, poor soundproof of the room and a little chilly. Good value for money though.

We stayed at the hostel in May 2016. The staff was great and the breakfast was OK, and contrary to what is stated here we did have good wifi reception in our room. The hostel is a 15 minute walk from Temple Bar, which is great because you can easily get there and also you're not stuck inside all the... More

Harrington House Hostel is best budget place to stay in Dublin. It's nice and clean, friendly staff, very well located near the center of Dublin. Direct link to he Dublin Airport, bus 16. Now, WiFi in the rooms is no more of a problem, as I saw in an older review.

Wi-fi did not work in the room, it was rather cold there, and the guy at the reception charged my Russian-issue card in roubles despite my mentioning that the currency of the account is euro, and I lost about 7% of the room price due to back-and-forth currency conversions.

Not very welcome and didn't give us additional information about the rooms. We only found out the second day we couldn't shower after 10am. We had to wait until 6pm for hot water. They only gave us one towel and at the end of our stay it was cold and wet. The nights were very cold, the blanket very thin,... More

I visited Dublin city in November 2015 and I was happy with this hostel. The location is excellent, you can reach temple bar in 10 15 minutes walking. I used room n1 (the biggest) with its own bathroom and it was quite simple but perfect for a quick visit to the city.

Stayed here for a girls weekend in Dublin and the room was average. Completely reasonable prices of about £15 each a night so can't complain about the room. If you are planning on sight seeing Dublin and not going out much at night, I wouldn't recommend however if you're planning on going out all night and only using the room... More

Myself, my husband, my sister, her fiance, our dad and his fiance went to Dublin together. Due to late planning, this was the only place that could book the six of us at a reasonable price. It is about ten minutes walk from St Stephens Green and just outside the house is a bus stop going to the city centre,... More
