I have stayed in both a shared bedroom and a double room. Definitely the best located hostel in Dublin and I can't put a finger on it. Nice staff, clean rooms and nice with free breakfast. Definitely coming back!

The location and the price are excellent,but the rooms are smalls and soundproofing to sleep,and the breakfast was very simple. The service and the cleanliness was correct. Good hostel for a weekend but not for a three or more days in Dublin.

Perfect location within seconds of Temple Bar! The atmosphere and people in the hostel were less than desirable. Maybe it was because of the time of year, but I did not have fun with anyone from the Hostel. Thankfully I was able to make friends from outside the Hostel who made my trip to Ireland a great experience.

Everything very nice, very kind and friendly staff. The 24h reception was perfect 'cause we took the last flight :) The rooms were clean and you have a kind of cage to keep your belongings safe. Perfect location next to temple bar in the city centre, also near to the key bus stations in order to go to the airport...

Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. We were a group of 9 girls in an 8 bedded room. Location is central, step outside and you are right in Temple bar. Atmosphere was fab with lots of drinks and laughs in communal areas. Staff were great, booking us a taxi, offering us late checkout, providing space to hold our...

We stayed here a few years ago, but doesn't seem that long ago. The location is perfect, right in temple bar, beside temple bar pub. The staff were more than helpful, especially Daisy. There were 4 of us in a private room, which was kinda small but clean. We only slept in the room so it didn't really matter. The...

Good hostel right in the middle of Temple Bar. Because of its locations, it's got a little bit of a party vibe and usually attracts a younger crowd. Little bit hard to sleep because of location, but overall very clean, good security, and amazing staff! They were so helpful and nice and showed us where we could go to sightsee...

Fun hostel! Great security and clean rooms. Good service at the desk. Breakfast gets busy so get there early! Stayed in a 6 bed room. Nice size, with a bathroom in the room. Lounge room is nice. Would definitely recommend!

It's right in the heart of the Temple Bar area, so prepare for noise! This is a party district, which makes it fun, but loud. Tons of bars and restaurants...and barber shops, strangely enough! I cannot say enough about the staff. They are friendly and helpful, just great. I had left my iPad at a hostel in Galway and the...

It's two or three store fronts down from the Temple Bar. All the major landmarks are within walking distance. Staff was very friendly. Met some really cool people from around the world. They have a nice break room and they allow you to use their facilities after checkout if you are waiting for your flight.
