  • 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.

  • Great location, but no safety boxes and also little bit dorty public areas; but for one night stay it was okay, I had a good sleep even there was seven other girls in my room.

  • Poor services. I booked private room for four with bathroom, but I got a room for 8 people without bathroom. We had one bathroom for the whole guests in the hostel. It was horrible.

  • 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.
