I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The location was in walking distance of everything. I was nervous at first to walk back alone in the dark, but it did it two nights in a row without fears. The wifi was good. The bathroom was clean. The thick front door with a hefty lock made me feel better. Breakfast was... More

The female receptionist was nice and helpful, but the male one was not quite. Old facilities, not good wifi on 3rd floor, but overall still acceptable. Quite noisy outside because of the buses at night.

Stayed here in June. We got a private room with en suite and it was fabulous! Definitely want to stay here again! Thanks to the staff for letting us check in early so we could nap! Very close to the city centre, clean, comfortable, just the best :) My only complaint is we couldn't connect to the wifi in the... More

This place was fine. It was a little cramped but overall not too bad. The wifi was pretty bad. It did not work in our room at all and we had to go to the common area to use it. The staff was friendly and helpful and we had our laundry done which was really nice. The location is right... More

The place was nice. We were initially worried when the cab driver told us not to be out late because of the meth heads in the area and he wasn't sure about the hostel but we were completely fine and had no problems. The hostel is only a few minutes away (15) from the train station and downtown life! Would... More

This cool hostel is a nice way to stay in the city on a budget. Has Proximity to the city and you can walk to almost everywere but it has a Poor Breakfast and Have to wash your own dishes after having breakfast.

Fantastic location, straight walk down the hill to all the hotspots of Dublin. The hostel was extremely clean, quiet and well facilitated. The staff on the welcome desk were extremely welcoming, polite, professional and made me feel at ease being a lone female traveler. I definitely recommend this hostel and will be staying again. Tip, get the number 16 bus... More

Room was large and nice. WiFi is free in the common room, but didn't work in the room unless you were pressed towards the door. Breakfast was decent. Very helpful staff who gave us a map, gave suggestions on where to go and what to see. OK location city-wise, but very near a bus stop connecting to the airport which... More

I (and 2 others) booked a private room. It was everything you'd want in a hostel: clean bed with sheets, clean bathroom and shower, towels provided, kitchenette, multiple outlets, excellent location near the city centre (always began the day with a short walk down O'Connell st. - makes sights much closer - for us, we didn't use any transportation but...

A very nice, comfortable and affordable hostel. The location is a short walk from the centre of town but is worth it. Has everything you would want, clean and tidy with helpful staff. The facilities were excellent and our room was great with an ensuite also. Has a good variety of rooms and a lounge for those quiet days. Great... More
