Reasonable Pricing for 6 Bedroom Dorm. I'd prefer the 4 Bedromm Dorm for it is on the "quiet" side of the street. The Hostel in the busy Temple Bar District, so the best Pubs und restaurants are around the corner and are well within walking distance. The Hostel offers door to door airport pickup. Great service. Free Coffee and breakfast....

This hostel is incredibly well situated in the heart of the city. It may be a little noisy but I enjoyed having so much pubs and restaurants around. The staff is friendly and the rooms are very clean.

Great place to stay while traveling solo. Easy to meet others and it's right in temple bar. Couldn't ask for a better location! The bathroom in my room was a bit dirty and the shower didn't work very well, but other than that it was a fantastic stay.

Me and 9 other girls have just returned from a boozy few days in Dublin. The Hostel is the perfect location with being more or less next door to The Temple Bar. There is lots going on a despite being bang in the center of the temple bar area none of us really struggled with the noise outside and sleeping...

The location is absolutely perfect (right in the Temple Bar district) and is a walk of thirty minutes or less to basically everything you'd want to see in downtown Dublin. All of the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were cleaned daily while we were there.

The staff was pretty friendly (all three I've met), but the rooms or bathrooms weren't clean. Location couldn't be better, walking distance from pretty much anywhere you'd want to go including the good restaurants. Overall a not bad choice, if you're looking for spacious rooms go somewhere else.

a good place to stay in Dublin! It is a huge hostel, but surprisingly quiet, despite its size and though right in the center of Temple Bar. Everything was very well organized and clean. My 4-bed-mixed-dorm was small, but ok.
