Four Courts Hostel
Ranked #23 of 120 Specialty Lodging in Dublin
Reviewed August 23, 2011

Excellent value in a very pricey city. I stayed in a 16 bed dorm and it was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The showers could do with a bit of work. Breakfast was good, though it's a very busy hostel and seems to have lots of groups of students staying. Not the usual backapcker crowd. Would definitely stay again though.

We sought out the Four Courts after a previous night at another hostel where are room was too noisy. The room here was lovely, clean and quiet. Ahhhhh. they also let us leave our packs in their storage room all day while we went out sight seeing even though we were not staying a second night. Only complaint was the noise in the common area, loud music and large, echoing rooms made it difficult to use wifi/internet (only available in common areas) or make phone calls.

Room Tip: Go outside the hostel or to an internet cafe if you need to make calls or use internet

Stayed here for a weekend with some friends, we were able to book whole room for the group. The social rooms available were first class with plenty of space to chill out after a day spent visiting Dublin. We walked pretty much everywhere from the hostel. Oldest pub in Dublin was the local and temple bar was 5 mins away. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and whole hostel had a really nice vibe to it. Excellent.

Both the room and our bathroom were really small,making it difficult to move or feel comfortable. The hostel,although clean, is in need of renovation,too. Breakfast is rather poor. They keep the luggage, if you wish, but that room is accessible to everyone else.However, the staff is really helpful and friendly! Getting to the airport is easy and the location is near the centre.

Myself and a group of friends used the Four Courts as a base for a stag weekend late in July. The rooms were basic but clean and had an en-suite bathroom and shower. Although the breakfast was basic it was ideal and as we had only paid 20euros a night it was far better than i would have expected. The staff were friendly and helpful both whilst arranging the weekend and whilst we were there. I thought that the location was perfect for us as it was close to the centre (5 minutes walk) yet far enough away to be quiet at night. Some people mention that there is noise at night in earlier reviews, we didnt hear a thing but then again we were up on the 3rd floor which may have been why!

I'd definately use the hostel again if i was in the city again in the future.

Four Courts is an upbeat, clean, and fun hostel to stay at. The location speaks for itself, it sits between Temple Bar, a 5 minute walk, and the oldest bar in Ireland, The Brazen Head. The staff is very kind and helpful with a great sense of humor. The hostel itself is very clean as well. We loved it!

i stayed at four courts for two nights and was very impressed by this hostel (and i'm a picky traveler). i stayed in a 12-bunk dorm and found the price to be fairly reasonable and in line with all the other hostels. this hostel had everything that we were looking for: VERY clean, VERY friendly and helpful staff, VERY safe with security cards that change color daily and swipe cards to enter dorm, CENTRAL location in templebar neighborhood and to guiness factory, FREE wifi downstairs and FREE 20-minutes per day of internet on computers, supplied linens, lockers under bunks for luggage, very lively.....

do you hear people partying in the middle of the night? of course, it's a hostel. do you sometimes have to wait for the bathroom? of course, it's a hostel.
you need to bring a lock for your luggage locker and a towel.

would DEFINITELY recommend and return to!!!
