  • We had a not so good experience in this hostel. Nothing horrible, but also not a good night. The hotel is well located and staff was nice to try to solve the problem with the heating (+). Now (-) our private room was super small, like 2x2m, really, nothing else than a bunk bed the smell of mould. It was really dirty and bed sheets did not look very good too, even though I think this comes with the whole impression of the room. It was very cold and heating wasn't working at all. Safety is poor.

  • The dorm room was great. The lounge area is only in the reception building with the kitchen and Wi-Fi. The bathroom was... moldy with no hot water. The red door building needs more work before I would stay there again. The problem is you will not know which building you will be staying in until you get there, so my next stay in Dublin will not be at Paddy's Place.

  • Although I had one of the best times of my trip in Dublin, it was more the people I met in the hostel than the actual hostel itself. While the kitchen was amazing, it is in a separate building than the dorms and dorms were often crowded and small. I also got bad bed bugs and when I notified staff of this, they did nothing about it. In saying that, I was the only one in a 10 bunk dorm that had them. If you stay a few days, you do get a few Paddywagon trip and that was incredible. Cheap but good.

  • I probably wouldnt go back. While the free airport pickup is nice, I was a bit deceived. There is wifi but only in the lounge which is in a different building from the bedrooms. I wanted to do the free tour of Glendalough and Kilkenny but no one told me it was only free during the week and not weekends. The staff dont really seem to care much, and the bathrooms were kinda mucky. The kitchen was ok but the stove takes forever to heat up. The location and free airport pickup were the best.things.

  • Good location, airport shuttle is a plus Nice sitting room for the breakfast Having to go to lobby while it's open for internet is bothering but not a deal breaker Didn't tour with guide offered but seems to have quite some of them available Beside the one guy who kept saying that he wasn't there to make friends with customers (which I know...), staff was helpful

  • It is very noisy because of the location close to the street. Trams, cars, buses and (or mainly) trains. Of course they can replace the windows with some good others in order to avoid the noise. Yes, this a very good idea. Please take it into consideration. Thank you!

  • Wifi is awful. It was really frustrating when it wasn't working and I had to contact my host family urgently and I couldn't. I had to walk to a Starbucks to email them. the staff was nice, but not professional and not very helpful. rooms were nice though! but wifi doesn't reach them. however, I only spent 10€ on one night so I guess I got what I paid for.
