  • The yha have always been those hostels you avoid unless you have no choice, this place is typical , bad neighbourhood , thin mattress/pillows and the usual institutional -vibe, the housekeeping volunteers were okay but the reception staff were the most unhappy unproductive workers i have ever seen , one or two were okay but one clueless guy with a trainspotting accent did not even believe there was a luggage room ( i had to show him) really the worst place and segragated dorms is always bad.
    Owner Comment

    Thank you for taking the time to comment, we are sorry that your stay wasn't all it could be. We have a very international mix of guests and staff which makes it a very exciting place to work in, but perhaps on the day that you stayed this vibe was just not around. (Everyone has their off days as we are only human) On the issues regarding the pillow or mattress, did you come to the reception to give us an opportunity to rectify? With regards to the area we are in, we have neighbours who look out for our guests and the area still retains the values of a community. Regards Misty Dublin International Youth Hostel

  • There was a bad smell at showers and toilet, but the staff was friendly and breakfast was good. I would say it is a nice place and not expensive.

  • The place is huge and cheap but the area where it is located is rather dodgy. I was in a 8 bed room and we had ONE powerpoint in the whole room. I was in this hostel two years ago and they had the same problem. The rooms do not have enough powerpoints. This is VERY unconvenient. Also one of the shower rooms for men on the second floor has hot water issues.Also there's WIFI issues. When the hostel is packed, you will have trouble connecting. I am not coming back to this place.

  • Everything is fairly nice there. I think I was unlucky for two nights in a row since I've been woken up by a crazy guy hitting my feet with his blanket thinking I was snoring but it was the guy below me. Everything is clean and nice but they're quite far from the city center. There's kinda a grocery store next to the building though so it makes up for it.

  • The hostel is about 30 mins' walk from the touristic centre of Dublin, definitely the farthest in the City. It is also in a notoriously socially-deprived area, which is immediately apparent from the shabby buildings and occasionally intimidating locals. Duvet covers aren't changes and you are expected to sleep between two bedsheets they give you. But almost everyone I saw in the four rooms I stayed in slept directly under the duvet, meaning only a sheet separates you from an unclean duvet.

  • Many lookers didn't work properly and there were not as many number of lookers as beds in some rooms
