Fabulous 8.8 From 31 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Clean and comfortable.
This hostel is very friendly and social, but is not necessarily a "party" hostel. The people that stay here respect others' time. Staff is very professional. Extremely clean. The shower on my floor was out of order my entire stay, but we were welcome to use the other floors', although this was not too convenient, it worked.

Very clean and quiet, but lots of great company in common areas. Secluded, but 15 min. to Temple Bar, 30 min. to the Spire. Nice kitchen.
Lori, usOther trip
Good 6.0
Hard to find when it's raining and your data doesn't work in Dublin... staff kind of indifferent but the room was fine. One bathroom (with the only toilet) per floor seems less than adequate. Having to change the wifi network on each floor was a little annoying. Breakfast was fine even if the hot water heater was not working and they couldn't even come up with a kettle to replace it with.
Carmel, ie1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Just fine - most people seemed to be there for work, but some of the guests were very friendly and we had a nice chat and time at a nearby pub one night. "free breakfast" indicates that guests are free to use the facilities to prep food and whatever is on the free food shelves in the fridge constitutes the free breakfast.

A good place to sleep and also explore Dublin
Great place to stay for one night in Dublin on my way to the US. Very very clean... Nice people at the reception Corrado at night time and Clarisse in the morning very helpful with little details that make the difference to a traveller... Thank you very much for a smooth stay. I will be definately coming back... The Wi-Fi strong the breakfast had enough of the basics you need to start your day... No complaints overall.
