You really don't have to go far for pubs and restaurants but at times you could not get into the pubs as they were full standing room only. Great choice of eating places and being two females on our own we felt very secure walking about

Good location near to Mare street Friendly Sardinian at desk knew my name and let me check in near to midnight (my flight was inbound delayed) The street is pedestrianised so the taxi would not drive down it

Excellent localization, excellent staff, good atmosphere. Negative points: no elevator and small rooms. The staff was very helpful by providing previous information regarding parking. Located among the best bars in Dublin.

Very good value and in a central location. €18 for a bed in a mixed 6 bed ensuite dorm. Outside the door are all of the pubs and restaurants of Temple Bar. The staff are nice and speedy at check in. The breakfast ran out of milk though (around 9am) and it was not replaced, despite a number of guests... More

Perfect hostel to stay in Dublin! Right in the city center, walking distance from nearly everything and just 2 doors down from the famous Temple Bar. Great for young people visiting on a budget. Would highly recommend!!!!

We spent 2 days in a 6 bed dorm with friends. Beds comfortable, rooms small, location was perfect and close to majority of landmarks by foot. Cereal & toast included. Smell coming from soil pipes on our level 1. You can leave your bags once checked out for €1 or €3 euro if your not staying at the hostel.

We had a 6 bed dorm between a group of friends. Rooms were quite small but pillows and beds comfortable. They need to sort out the smell coming from the soil pipes. Breakfast was included and is your standard cereal and toast etc. Location is exactly what you want, close to all iconic landmarks.

A great hostel in the heart of Temple Bar! We had an eight bed en suite dorm, just what we needed! 25 euro a night each, bargain! A clean, safe pad to set up base and hit the bars in Dublin. Staff were excellent! Didn't have the breakfast but it was there if needed. It's a lively spot, so avoid... More
