I would not recommend this hostel. We were in a 12 bed dorm, which was pretty basic. There were only 2 powerpoints for the whole room, so no one could charge their phones. There was only one shower and two toilets shared between about 30 people. There was also no wifi in the rooms, and we were kicked out of...

Stayed here a few nights not bad. Comfy beds and clean linen. It is a hostel so don't be wanting or expecting a lot because you won't get it. Breakfast is just tea,coffee and toast. But it's good enough to tie you over until lunch outside. Friendly staff always answered all my questions. And book two or more nights get...

I spent one night at Paddy’s Palace in an 8 bed dorm the night before leaving on a tour and in the 10 bed women’s dorm the night after a tour. Unless you’re staying here just to make sure you get to your tour on time, look for other places. It’s also right near the bus station and Connolly train...

Dublin was awesome so many things to do if you stay like two or three days in this hotel they'll give you a free tour. At least they were when I was there in September. Really nice hostel for the price unfortunately it doesn't have Wi-Fi throughout only in the main lobby. But really friendly staff and free breakfast.

A nice hostel in the city center, or not far from it (in my opinion), clean, and with friendly staff. My favorite element however, was the low price which included the bus journey to the airport early in the morning. Amazing! The bathroom was not the best, but oh well.

I did arrive late at night/early hours of the morning and the guy at reception let me in, was very welcoming and checked me in quickly. I stayed in a private room and found the room to be comfortable and clean. The shared bathroom and toilets were also clean on the floor I was staying, keep in mind that you...

I only stayed in this hostel for 1 night but I've traveled and stayed in hostels extensively across the world, and this is not one of the best or even averagely good. The carpet in the room was dirty, smelly and spotted. The windows couldn't be opened to let fresh air in and the 4 bed room was so cramped,...

The rooms are clean and the beds have nice white linen. The hostel is basic but close to all amenities and is great value for money. The staff were nice and there were lots of tourists passing in and out. Not a bad place.

We used this hostel recently for a stag party and it was perfect. A few minutes walk to the temple bar and only 200mts from the main street. The airport shuttle dropped us right at the door. The hostel was clean and the beds comfy. The water was only luke warm in the shower was my only complaint.
