Loved the atmosphere in this pub. On the Temple Bar strip and over a number of different levels. Love the Irish folk music and how everyone gets involved. The drinks are priced just like anywhere in Dublin. One thing to note on Temple Bar if you've never been, after a certain time the price of drinks changes and can go...

After reading some of the reviews on here prior to our stay we were feeling nervous as to what to expect . Fortunately we were pleasantly surprised. Room was clean and provided exactly what we expected for what we paid. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dublin was amazing, such friendly people. We ate in the bar attached to the hostel...

There was fabulous live Irish music.. a real taste of Ireland :) The food was great, only downside isn't a...

Stayed here end of march staff are friendly and welcoming but thats about it really.. beds arent comfy at all but on saying that if you are using it just for a bed to see the city then i suppose its not bad.. the location on the other hand is brilliant definetly recommend gogartys bar and buskers round the corner..

Only given 2 stars instead of 1 star due to the location. They flat out refused to sort out the broken shower in room 44, which had been broken for at least 10 days (as read in a review going back 10 days). Which wasn't exactly ideal for a group of 10 staying for 2 nights! Rude unwelcoming staff. Keep...

My friends and I stay here whenever we visit Dublin, which has been thrice until now. Compared to other places it's quite cheap and the breakfast is included. The rooms do lack some comfort and I wouldn't recommend staying here for three weeks, but it's more than fine for a short trip. The staff is mostly friendly and helpful and...

Staff at the reseption was super friendly when we arrived. We had our own shower and bathroom in our room which was nice. Breakfast was included. Clean and nice room, nothing special but we can recommend this hostel to others.
