This fun and well equipped hostel is a safe, clean environment with a perfect location in the center of Dublin, right in Temple Bar, the city's cultural quarter.
Score from 367 reviews Very good
Perfect location, basic breakfast, good kitchen facilities.
Incredible poor sound sealing (lot of noise come into the room from the street), and non properly heated bathroom (the rooms are warm, but the toilet and bathroom was cold).
Location Breakfast Staff Tourist information Free Wi-Fi Room and bed
Very good location Had a kitchen to prepare food Mostly friendly staff
When I made the reservation there were photos of a room which was nothing like the one I got. The room looked a lot nicer on internet and I thought this was what I was buying into. Very dissapointed when I saw the room I actually got.
The location was amazing, very central, on a walking distance of major touristic attractions as well as restaurants, shops and means of transportation downtown. The wifi was very good in the bedroom and for free.
Most of the staff wasn't very nice or welcoming. I was in the Kinlay hostel in Galway before and had an amazing time, although they share the same name, the experiences were quite different. The free breakfast was very poor, the common area would close at night (although the reception was open 24h), we had to pay for our left luggage storage, even when we asked for touristic information the response was very poor and uninteresting.
very close to the temple bar right in front of the hostel you can take the bus to tie airport which is really comfortable. fast wifi
the breakfast ist very poor. really poor. and there is no plug in the common bathroom
The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our needs
Location, size of twin room + 2 proper beds, interesting building, window in the room got in the sunlight and being on the top meant noise was minimal..
the heater never heated up properly (only at the bottom) and was switched on for only 2-3 hours from 9 pm onwards (we were out..).. This meant the room was cold...
The rom. ..
staff, wifi, breakfast, location. easy to go airport, bus stop is in front of building.
bed was bit small.
city center ..personnel helpful
the bed is quite clean
Great location in the heart of the city. Hot shower was great!
On arrival staff not friendly or helpful (On second day, however, staff more friendly and more helpful.) Breakfast area and set-up needs to be better arranged (some toasters not working for example). Variety of food available could be improved, ie. some fruit (bananas), orange juice..
Owner rude on arrival. Other staff nice. Bed noisy (noise if traffic from street) and uncomfortable
The only good thing about this hostel is the location.
The room was stinky and dusty, bathrooms were dirty. I've stayed only 1 night (thank god!) and made it to last 15 mins of breakfast. But the staff started taking things away and didn't even let anyone have a cup of coffee. They switched off coffee machine too. Horrible, horrible service.
The young guests I met.
Stayed for four nights, my bedsheets were never changed.
Great location, great value for money
room was VERY cold
The duvet was a nice warm one & heating came on early in morn. Building is nice.
was woken up at 4.30 am by a guy saying I was in his bed, he tried handing me my stuff telling me to get out & was not until I showed him by ticket to prove I was in the right bed did he bother to check his own ticket. I also screamed as I got a really bad fright & NOBODY came to ask if I was ok!!!
exceptional quality-price deal, good position, comfortable beds
wi-fi connection was not optimal
We spent there two weekday nights during low season and the price was fine for its EXCELLENT location. The hostel lies literally besides Christchurch Cathedral, and 3 minutes away from Olympia Theatre, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Temple Bar, etc. Bananaman!!
When you got such a perfectly located hostel, you want to be able to go up and down your room for convenience - no such luck as there were no lift/elevator. The bed was too hard and not really convenient. Shared bathrooms is a mess but you get what you pay anyway. Summary: this was my 5th time in Dublin and I can say there are better options out there, both outside and inside central Dublin.
Location, location, location
The hostel has a excellent location and is in the center of Dublin. Common room is a great place to hang out with different people. The staff is friendly.
Breakfast - food is budget and small range but adequate, cold room (i was in November).
too crowded, no good pans
Common room Staff Value for money
No privates available during my stay, otherwise enjoyed my stay.
Clean rooms, kitchen
Not super social common areas, a little difficult to sit with people to chat as everything was arranged for small groups to sit together. Bathrooms a little sketchy
Location was nice. Common area was fun but a bit small. Lockers are good size, can fit regular size luggage and small bag.
The staff was not pleasant when asked questions, very unprofessional, and not really too helpful. There was one man working at the front desk that told me to "calm down" when I asked to check our reservations for our bus to the airport. Oh and they don't tell you, but this "bus" to the airport is some guy driving a van that makes NUMEROUS stops before it arrives. Wifi does NOT work in the rooms above the first floor.
