We stayed here for one night to go to a gig at slane castle and were not disappointed! We booked the private enquire room which was huge! Didn't feel like a hostel at all. The entrance is in a separate building to the main hostel so it's basically like your own little flat. Obviously the decor is old and tired...

Stayed at the hostel four nights with a friend whilst spending every day exploring Dublin. Big rooms with many soccets and big lockers for your things. Best part was the location, only ten minutes from city centre and right in the middle of the oriental food area. Helpful staff and basic breakfast for €2 also made our stay more enjoyable

We had a great time, the hostel is not that far from the downtown, we liked the location, the rooms and the bathrooms are very comfortable, and the lobby guys are cool people. We definetely would stay again!

Like the title says this was the first time I saw a clean shower in a hostel. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the rooms, toilets and ever common areas. Wifi was good and we had plenty of areas to charge the phones (bedrooms included). Breakfast was an adicional 2€ which we did not take.

Basically everything you need from a cheap-ish hostel. It was clean, quiet and in a convenient location. Staff were friendly and accommodating (allowing us to leave our luggage there even after we had checked out). Bathroom facilities were limited but clean. Some nice features such as table tennis table, sofas and TV, vending machines and computers and free WiFi. We...

The hostel was nice enough, but the staff were a bit abrupt when we first arrived. There were 4 of us travelling & we booked a dorm together but when we got there we were placed into two separate dorms, but next door to each other! The games room was a good place to chill & play pool and the...

We booked a short 2 night 3 day break in Dublin. The hostel was well staffed, with nice and friendly members of the team (even after our key card fiasco) nice and spacious rooms with high ceilings. Clean as best as can be. Great kitchen facilities and good social and relaxing communal area. Lockers in room are a good plus...

Was not very clean. Staff was not memorable. But I was in Dublin and that was all that mattered. Would stay again largely based on price. I was focused more on Dublin than our room and the many random people we stayed with. Still better than the hostel I stayed in for paris!

I stayed there for 2 weeks and I shared the biggest dorm (16 people). The staff is really easygoing and kind. They always tries to help and answer to all your questiones. You have free wifi in all rooms and at the reception you can use 3 pc for free. The kitchen is situated in the basement the working hours...

Me and my friends stayed here for five nights, and got our own room. The beds were nice enough, but the sheets were really dirty. Everything else was really simple, and what you expect from a cheap hostel. It has a nice location, really close to O'Connell street and a ten min. walk to Temple bar. Nice and quiet in...
