Large group of 50 students stayed. Bunk bed rooms, large open corridors. Huge place! Lockers for each room, but BRING YOUR OWN PADLOCK. Bedding provided and basic breakfast (juice, tea, coffee, toast, cereal). Wifi in lobby, not in rooms. Many toilets and shower room- separate sex. Sink and mirror in rooms, only one plug socket that is a down side....

horrible room, paint peeling off window sills, window wouldn't fully close, no sockets in room. Shower water intermittent and cold. OK, its a hostel, but still expect electricity in room!!! Breakfast included which was OK and staff were friendly. There's much better hostel accommodation in Dublin.

Thank you for taking the time to comment, we are continuously trying to improve our facilities and services of the hostel. With a building over 150 years old and it being a convent school for the area there wasn't as much necessity for plugs unlike today. We are in the process of rectifying this along with painting and re-flooring, which...

Great stay for one night. 10 minute walk from the city center, and simple but huge breakfast. I am sure I will go back again to this hostel. Friendly staff as well. Magnetic cards and Wifi are sometimes not working

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. Staying in hostels can be a pretty amazing experience, more so for the interesting people that you meet and befriend.

This hostel is located about a 15 minute walk away from the river and town centre, and a 3-5 minute walk away from O'Connell street. The hostel is warm and tidy, and is full of character as it is set in a restored building. The WiFi is secure and available in all common areas. The kitchen is large enough and...

Warm, safe, pretty decent wifi ! I booked a single room (a dorm room - but you are the only person in it !), great value. The single rooms are not always available, but when they are quiet they will let you have one ... worth asking ! Continental breakfast is included, which makes it really good value ! Secure...

Good value for money: rooms and showers are clean and the breakfast was OK. The staff was extremely friendly and helped me out every time when I had a question. Also, the hostel offers some additional services (luggage storage, airport transfer) and they have a network of providers where you can book day trips. Internet works very well in the...

Thieves walk right in occasionally and just steal stuff and walk out, then come back a week or two later and do it again! Don't let the locked doors and staff everywhere give you a false sense of security. They do NOTHING to deter crime. One power outlet in each room means you're forced to hangout in the common areas...

It is unfortunate that you felt that there was a false sense of security and that we do NOTHING to deter crime. We have CCTV at the front door and through the hostel, each bedroom can only be accessed with a room key and the security doors, there are lockers in each room that can be secured by own lockers,...
