  • 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

  • The Dublin Central Hostel was an great choice for my stay over St. Patty's Day! The location is perfect, the rooms were clean, the staff was very helpful! They included a nice breakfast, and a big kitchen to use. The price is a great deal!! We had a great experience here and definitely would go back!!

  • 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.

  • We had a horrible night's sleep, because other residents were boisterous and loud into the wee hours of the morning. We had a flight to catch at 7, so we did not appreciate the lack of respect and courtesy paid to others such as ourselves who were staying.
