Excellent location in the heart of Temple Bar district. A door-to-door shuttle to the airport may be booked at the reception, including for the most early departures, for 7 EUR per head.
There was only cold water in the shower, but as I was staying there just one night with early departure, I had no desire to further investigate/complain, so, probably, it was my fault doing something wrong with the shower control :)
Friendly staff, clean, central. My second stay there, would definitely recommend it!
Proximity to bars. Staff were helpful. Cleanliness
Nothing to complain about.
Great location. I'm a light sleeper and thought it would be really noisy but was pretty good. Staff are lovely and room good value (clean, comfortable and good shower) - it's small but we didn't go there to sit in the room! Would definitely stay here again.
Earlier check in than 2.30pm but otherwise was great
Location but way to noisy
location is excellent guitar in common room is a nice touch breakfast is top notch as far as a light breakfast goes
*bathrooms are scarce and the ones that are there are really noisy *staff member on arrival seemed to be bullying junior member of staff perhaps it was only horse play but didnt give me a very good first impression staff being unnecessarily rude to their co-workers is the opposite of a relaxed and friendly atmosphere *common room closed too early
The staff were so friendly
Bunk beds and noise
Great location about as central as you could get to Temple Bar. Easy check in, friendly staff.
Room was very cramped and there was lots of noise from fans/plumbing/doors all night plus it was very hot. Be prepared its very basic but the location is all.
Didnt get any sleep other guests outside door shouting making noise during d night, on website it showed two single beds when got to room it was bunk bed? ?
Location, price, staff, cleanliness
52 stairs, bunk beds, small room, police/ambulance sirens through the night; but one gets what one pays for. I'd do it again.
Facilities, clean comfy bedroom Great kitchen They give you ideas about what to do in Dublin/ where to travel to in Ireland on a poster wall in the kitchen
Quite noisy at night (bars are just outside) You'll have to wait for staff to open the front door at night. Why isn't there any key for guests?
Great option for the hostel traveller. Private rooms were a bit pricier, but given the location still a good deal. Set in a really lively area, easy to get around and to the main stations. Also, great kitchen!
Bit noisy at night, but if you're setting up in Temple Lane that's probably par for the course.
Right in the heart of Temple Bar.
Noise, beds, kitchen.
The location and price and how friendly staff are
Location was great, staff were very helpfull and the bunks were comfortable which is always a bonus!!!!!!
the light for my bunk didnt work only two bunk lights worked out of six!!! i mention this to one of the staff members she said she will send a email but the light never got sorted it wasnt a big problem but it would of helped at night instead of using my phone to find things. The toilet made a loud noise when flushing so that wasnt good at night when people were sleeping.
staff were super friendly and helpful! great location if you want to be close to heaps of bars, also not far from the castle, shops and trinity college.
one room was spacious, another i stayed in so cramped i couldnt get into the locker under the bed, shower/toilet a little small also. breakfast was very basic.
The evening walks.
All was good.
The location was perfect for exploring Dublin for the first time
For a hostel it was clean and comfortable. Location was right in the middle of things so easy access to all that Temple Bar has.
I stayed for 2 nights in this hostel with my boyfriend, we had a room with a private bathroom. The room wasn't big but very comfortable, very nice and with everything you need. The position is perfect because you are in the very centre of the Temple Bar! The staff is very willing and kind.We really liked this hostel and I think it is our favourite!
The only thing is that, above all during weekend, because of its central position, is quite noisy, but actually I was able to sleep quite well!
Very handy to shamrockers. Staff very helpful & friendly
Very noisey due to location.
Great location. It's right behind Temple Bar, and very close to other Dublin attractions like the Dublin Castle. There's a stop of the both hop-on hop off busses a block away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast included juices, fruit, and cereals. I spent 1 night in a 6-bed mixed ensuite. The beds in this room were foam and very comfortable. This room was on the backside of the building and so it was quiet. I spent 1 night in a double by myself and had a shared balcony. The balcony had a great breeze and had a lovely side view of Temple Bar. The bed wasn't foam and wasn't AS comfortable, but was still comfortable! WiFi is free and reaches your bedrooms!
There was a mix up in my booking. I was supposed to be in a female 4-bed room, but ended up in a mixed 6-bed room. They said they had emailed about it, but I never received the email. Fortunately, this was cheaper so I was okay with it. Also, the girl who helped me was so nice; she made all sorts of accommodations to make up for this mix up. This room faced the back of the building, so it was quiet, but no breeze. Fortunately there was a fan. 3 or 4 of the people in this room were international students looking for long term housing, so they had a lot of luggage. The room was small (you get what you pay for), so it was really difficult to move around. The size of the room is really much more suitable if your bags/backpack fits in the locker under the bed. Also, the room had a heavy mildew smell. I attribute this to the towels and lack of circulation. I really enjoyed my second room, which was a double. It was on the street side of the building, which meant there was people walking by from the bars until about 3 or 4 am. I didn't mind this, but others can find this bothersome, so be prepared.
Right smack dab in the middle of party central and the staff were wonderful - very helpful.
Location is good, just in the heart of town. The price is fair, not so expensive.
The breakfast is really poor. The front door was closed when I got back at 5 am and I had to ring like 100 times for the receptionist. It is really for young peeps coming to Dublin for partying. If you wanna sleep good, that is not your place.
