  • It was horrible. In our room for two was a bunk bed and a bin - that's it. No place to put your clothes or belongings. You could barely breathe in there because it was only one square metre. Also, free wifi was only available in the common room, not in the dorms rooms. The toilet in the hallway wasn't lockable and half of the door of the shower was missing. Further, the offered free transport from and to the Dublin Airport die not exist, although it was clearly written on every window. Awful!

  • This was not at all a pleasant stay. The bathrooms reeked of mold, each shower needed a new shower head (one was missing completely and the other fell off while in use). The front door shuts so loudly that it woke me up every time someone came home. Also yellow is my favorite color, but painting everything yellow is tacky and painful to look at. WiFi in the lobby only? Really? Also tacky and very inconvenient. The bus tour was the only enjoyable part of my stay, so thank you for that service.

  • The staff was really helpful in finding a day trip, a good pub, and getting around the city. I would recommend this place to all my friends. The Paddywagon was a great method of transportation.

  • You should really consider taking off the "Palace" word from it's name...

  • Booked a private twin room and was given a shoebox of a room witha bunkbed and very little space for both parties to stand. The toilets and showers are in need of upkeep, especially when charging the rates they are.

  • Great location and very nice staff, but the room was very small and therefore kind of expensive.

  • Nice staff, some of them competent, some not so much. Very central, next to bus station. No real lockers and wi-fi only in the common room where you'll be kicked out at 11. Free shuttle bus to Dublin airport and sometimes free/cheap Paddywagon tours.

  • My trip June 18 was ruined by a guest that was staying or living there as he informed me for a year, he yelled at us when we entered the room, saying that we banged the door , which I informed him that i do not bang doors that maybe the 2 windows that were open was the cause, he proceeded to shout and curse, only it was late at night, I would have left and went else where, the security man was no help it was obvious to us..So no thanks and no its not a I wont recommend it.

  • The good things: 24hrs reception, free lift to the airport (even though the bus broke down in front of the hostel -_- ), comfy beds, good included breakfast, close to O'Connell Street and Temple bar. The bad things: the front door of our building was broken, I guess, and anyone could access it, close to a railroad track so noisy, no hot water for one day (had to go to another building to have a shower), no wi-fi in the rooms but only in the common room which closes at 11.00 pm.
