The rooms are clean and the beds have nice white linen. The hostel is basic but close to all amenities and is great value for money. The staff were nice and there were lots of tourists passing in and out. Not a bad place.

We used this hostel recently for a stag party and it was perfect. A few minutes walk to the temple bar and only 200mts from the main street. The airport shuttle dropped us right at the door. The hostel was clean and the beds comfy. The water was only luke warm in the shower was my only complaint.

This hostel is very central and is ideal for going out. We had a nice clean room and a good hot shower. It is next to the bus station which is great as it is 1minute from the airport bus. Breakfast is basic but fine and the hostel was very cheap meaning more money for the temple bar :)

The girls working there were very nice and the location is close to everything by foot. The goods points stopped there. That was no hot shower and to get water you need to press the button constantly. There was mold everywhere, it was old and didn't look clean and the smell was horrific. The room was more than tiny (twins... More

We just spent one nigth at the hostel but it was enough. The toilet/showering room was not just dirty as if it hadnt seen soap or anything like that in month but it also smelled terribly after mold. (I couldnt see a lot of mold but the smell of it was everywhere). Then, when we checked in they said, after... More

After walking around the somewhat sketchy corner for 15 minutes trying to find it and taking a break at the local pizza place, we finally found the "palace" and were checked in by a rude attendant. When we entered the first hallway, beautifully carpeted with stains and years of grime, it was clear that we had forgotten to review trip... More

If you are thinking about staying at Paddy's Palace, don't. It is the worst of the worst. This hostel is the most dirtiest, run down hostel I have ever stayed in. It is not safe as more permanent male residents hang out and smoke outside the washrooms/hallways and cat call you as you go to the bathroom. I felt more... More

Just arrived and I already know I'm NEVER coming back again. Room is tiny and disgustingly muggy, windows are filthy and covered with a grimey piece of cloth. Bathrooms do this place no favours either, no lock and nowhere to dry your hands! So not worth the money being charged! Avoid at all costs.
