Looking for a hostel?

Budget travellers know that there is no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a bit more.

Ashfield Hostel

“For a hostel the rooms are decent and cleaner than others in the area. Great location. Staff were friendly. Area is quiet and safe during the day. Not as noisy as I thought it would be considering the central location.”

Isaacs Hostel

“The place is ok for a cheap stay or to meet other backpackers. The guys gave me a refund and let me go, which was nice.”

Generator Hostel Dublin

“Without a doubt, the best hostel in Ireland if not further! The staff were very helpful, there are great facilities and it is in a great Location!”

Jacobs Inn Hostel

“Jacob's Inn was maybe one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. I really recommend the pods which give you a bit more privacy than the bunk beds and they're super comfortable and cosy to sleep in. It's in such a great central area and within walking distance of most tourist destinations in Dublin, plus informative walking tours everyday start at 10am, and the space itself boasts a pool table and two animated murals of Irish culture and history, among other great assets. Can't recommend this hostel enough !”

Abbey Court Hostel

“The mix of facilities and opportunities for social activities for the backpackers and other single travellers. Safety for a hostel of its size was good. The central location. Oh and the wonderful decor!”

Jacobs Inn Hostel

“Totally recommended! Each bed has its curtain, individual lights and USB sockets. En-suite bathroom in the dormitory. Very clean and comfortable hostel. TV with Netflix is a plus! It was really cheap (60€ for 5 nights) One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!”
