Very reasonably priced. Get WiFi included and continental breakfast - cereals, toast and tea\coffee. Staff really friendly and helpful. Towel hire just 2 euro. Saves extra luggage and having a soggy towel in yr bag. Easy to find on the river front with its bright blue door opposite the huge domed four courts building. So central. Just ten min walk... More

We (myself and my family - 2 teenage children) stayed at the Four Courts Hostel for two nights in August 2016. This is the first time I have stayed in a hostel and I was a little worried. Well I shouldn't have been, for a hostel this is great. The rooms are small, but clean, you get basic breakfast (toast... More

Staff were super friendly and helpful. There was free Wifi and a free breakfast (but you have to do the dishes yourself). It's not a new building, but it has a charm to it. The door looks blue now. Also the hostel is only 3 blocks away from temple street! Worth the cash:)

Easy to find with its brightly coloured exterior. Only 10 parking spaces in a nearby car park (we were lucky to get the last one) however I guess most people wouldn't need one. The hostel itself was nice and welcoming, with friendly and informative staff. The rooms were big, sleeping 16, which was good if you wanted to make friends!... More

While I was solo travelling I stayed in 4 different hostels in Dublin and this was hands down my favorite. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, wifi reached up to the rooms and it was strong, and there is free breakfast every morning. They also offer free luggage storage for the day... More

Stayed here 3 times in last year (staying again in september) and I wouldn't go anywhere else now :) We always book our own room, as always between 3-6 people and it gives you your own space, prices are so reasonable too you can easily pay for the extra bed or two. Rooms are just want you need. Bed, storage... More

Recently stayed here for a friends stag do. We had two private rooms which each had ensuite bathrooms. This probably made it s slightly better experience than having to share the common facilities. The hostel itself appeared to be clean and the rooms themselves were fairly well maintained. The beds are comfy, although the sheet was probably thicker than the... More

This place is situated very close to all the major attractions in Dublin. We stayed here for one night and then switched to a hotel, afterwards we were sorry that we had changed as this place was much better than the hotel. The staff are really friendly and the breakfast was good also. Next time I'm in Dublin I will... More

This hostel was perfect for my first 3 nights in Ireland. It was easy to get there from the airport and was a great "home base" for touring the city as it was close to Jameson, Dublin Castle, and Christ Church Cathedral! My only two complaints were that two small bathrooms for 24 girls beds is not adequate and I... More
