My 3 friends and I stayed here for 3 nights while we were attending a festival in Dublin. We choose it because it was cheap and handy as it is on the Luas line. After reading reviews I was dreading arriving at the hostel but honestly it wasn't bad at all! Its definitely not hotel standard but it is grand...

Booked this hotel, and after read the extra reviews that were added and got very worried. I shouldn't have been! It's not too hard to find, look up and there is a sign, simply ring the buzzer to get in. The hostel isn't a high quality hotel and this is reflected in the competitive price. The hotel could do with...

Cheap and cheerful does exactly what it says on the tin. If you want somewhere cheap to lay your head after a long day and get a shower in the morning, close to the city centre then this is for you. If you expect all the frills of a hotel then I would advise staying somewhere else.

I wasn't going to rate Citi Hostel as Terrible as the low cost of staying here is a positive however the next lowest rating of Poor does not justify how awful this place is. Firstly trying to find the building is near impossible, I had saved the location on the map on my phone got there and no sign of...

We stayed here for 2 nights, married couple. We just wanted somewhere to go to sleep at night. We arrived and checked in, no problems. Got the wifi code that worked no problems. The room was clean. So that was main priority. The shower wasn't great but did the job. We was literally only in the room to get showered,...

I stayed for a week while trying to sort out a new rented accommodation. I never use trip advisor but this hostel warranted my efforts to help avoid people using it. I had a double room to myself, the bed was broken and was very uncomfortable. Shower door was hanging off, heating was broken and always on, it smells really...

This was one of the worst experiences of my life. After we checked in and were shown our rooms, I asked about keys and was told that keys for everyone staying 'would be too hard to manage' and that all doors are left unlocked. There were no lockers or anywhere to securely leave your belongings. Showers looked as though they...

I recently booked a night in Citi Hostel, Dublin. Myself and my partner had booked a private room online. When we arrived at the hostel, there was a man sitting on reception in a ski jacket and winter hat who told us that we had to pay him and he was transferring us to their "Sister Hostel". We were under...

This hostel is okay, my sister and I stayed there for five nights in March '16. We stayed in a 8 person room, and the smell was not pleasant, sweat and alcohol. It seemed like four people lived in the room, not travelers, which was weird to us. The mattresses were awful, I could feel the springs in my back...
