  • Hostel is situated near to the main shopping street, about a (max) 15 minute walk to Temple bar district. We needed to take the Luas to work every day at st. Stephens Green park, which was a little far (25 minutes walk). The hostel was fine, but not clean (i had dirty sheets and the bed itches..) for the use of lockers, bring your own small lock.

  • The location of the hostel is quiet good as its close to the city centre. The facilities are poor, good luck with using any of the kitchen utensils, pots and pans, most of the time it's completely filthy. The beds are somewhat comfortable, n lockers are available as long as you have a chunkey padlock. The bathrooms are atrocious and dirty with 5sec timer. We booked for 3 nights and left after 2nd night.

  • Pretty close to the City Centre but in a quiet street. 4-bed dorm en suite was very good, lockers in the room, the bathroom was big and clean. Free internet, big kitchen, lounge. 2 Euro Breakfast was good aswell. Some noisy, disturbing people during the night.

  • We felt safe and very welcome here. Will recommend to friends and family. If we ever find ourselves in that area again, this is the place we will stay! Great price, close to everything!

  • The staff was very friendly and helpful, thanks for your help! The rooms, toilets and showers weren't anything special but ok. Next to reception, there were rooms for chilling out including table tennis, TV and free internet which we thought was great! The free breakfast was fine. The location was ok, we always walked into town. All in all, we got a good deal for our money!

  • The location of the hostel was excellent, but it needs a really good renovation. It's really old and oldfashion.

  • The reception is supposed to be 24 hours- but when my room entry card stopped working at 4am there was no one around. The bathrooms are pretty filthy and the atmosphere is pretty antisocial.
