  • I really enjoyed talking with the Staff, especially Susanna. She gave me a map and marked many good neighborhoods and sights to check out. She was on point with her suggestions of the Black Sheep pub and Sweenys pub. Thank you for making my stay in Dublin memorable. Also, I enjoyed meeting other travelers from around the world in the hostel and watching movies and the football games in the living room. The hostel is quiet, but I enjoyed that and it was nice to relax after a fun day exploring.

  • Pos: close to the city center and the main shopping street. Helpful staff, rules for using the public space. Neg: Cleanliness of the sheets was questionable. The floor and cupboard in one of the rooms was extremely dirty. Every sound from the hall, other rooms and pipes was hearable (have earplugs with you!). Poor breakfast - bread, jam, tea, milk with cornflakes.

  • Nice place. Cozy rooms with free breakfast. We gayer in a private room. The staff was really friendly. Located right by a bus stop and is within walking distance of Temple bar area. The wifi was awful and only worked about 1/2 the time. When it did, it was terribly slow.

  • I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. We got a private room, which was simple but clean and had everything you'd want in a hostel (with the exception of a locked area/safe, but I was able to lock a private room, so this wasn't a problem for me). The only complaint I would have is that the walls are paper thin and I could hear a lot of people moving around, etc. during the night. I'm a heavy sleeper it wasn't too bad, but it might

  • We stayed at the Dublin Central Hostel for 3 nights and we loved it. Very cozy, comfortable and the staff was incredibly nice! The kitchen had everything we needed and the breakfast was quite good (and free), except it hadn't many gluten-free options! Anyway, everything was enough and we liked it.
