Was a bit nervous after reading other reviews before our stay but needed have worried. We had a twin room with en suite. It was clean, spacious and in a totally perfect location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Couldn't find any negatives. Would highly recommend!

Bathrooms were decent, not really...

First of all, for this price you can't expect much. The location is excellent. It is in the middle of the temple bar district. That does make it hard to not hear the noise at night when you sleep at the frontside of the hostel. Also, the flags hit the window all night long, that didn't help either. Staff was...

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. It is in the heart of the Temple Bar area and very busy. The room we had contained 5 bunk beds and a bathroom with a shower. There is a t.v. room and a kitchen on the 2nd floor. Great access to a variety of pubs and restaurants. Very busy at night...

Magic atmosphere in this hostel! I stayed 3 nights in this beautiful building. I shared a 10 bed room clean and spacious that every day was vacuumed, same for the bathroom with clean towels. Very nice and helpful people at the front desk. Yes, definitely I will go back to this place when I will be in Dublin.
