Reviewed July 7, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights and was great, although its quite noisey at night. The staff were really great and happy to help with directions etc. The rooms were basic but comfortable and had everything you'd need. Not sure if it was the staff or other guests but someone was rearranging the room above early morning and late at night other than that we had a great stay and will be back!

Stayed: August 2012, traveled with friends

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The actual site and rooms were not so great. This is a better place for backpackers than families. It was a good location, but very loud in the evening. There elevator was slow and often packed.

Very central (temple bar) hostel. We booked a private room with ensuite. Bunk beds were hard to navigate and no curtains so difficult to sleep in! Other than that for the cost (about £25 per person per night) it was excellent. Staff are very helpful and although accommodation is basic it is clean and the continental breakfast much better quality than most places I have stayed.

Hey everyone!

This place is one of my favourite Hostels! It ticks all the boxes, great location, comfy beds, friendly staff with great advice, good breakfast included in the rate, and good prices in general for beds and rooms. It's right in the middle of Temple Bar, a pretty sweet, happening place and a five minute walk from the main street. The food in the pub below is great the prices for their special menu are fairly reasonable. If you want advice on places to visit, eat or drink hit up Ronan (You'll know him by his beard). All in all, would definitely recommend this place.

My girlfriend, roommate and friend stayed on the top floor of Oliver Saints, in a nice condo flat. It was a two bedroom, with nice kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen had an electric range oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and all the pots and pans to make anything you wanted.
The view is what stole the show. You could see the entire square of Saint Oliver's and all of the tourists mingling around.
Going down to the pub was pretty amazing. We got a free drink a day, since we were guests of the condo and we became regulars at the pub. The barkeeps knew us by name, knew our favorite drinks and were more than forthcoming with information on the city and what was going on.
There are tons of shops, grocery marts, gas stations, bars (of course) and attractions.
People a the area are pretty awesome too. Not just the Irish, but the visitors too. Everyone was eager to chat and that only added to a positive experience. Looking to return one day and have that same sense of excitement.

Room Tip: The condo flats/penthouse is the way to go if you're with a family, or close friends.

Late night real Irish music and fresh guinness on the second floor. Not far from the airport and an east walk from the Trinity area. The wait staff works hard just trying to lean up behind the locals, but the Saturday night mix at midnight was still 50 / 50 locals to tourists. What a great time!

Room Tip: Great place to hang and enjoy a good evening
