    This is one of the best burgers in Dublin. It's epic. It can be a bit disorganised and mental if there's a soccer match on. The drinks are overpriced, considering it's a hostel. It can also have boisterous clientele.More

    I paid about $50 per night so I would imagine the $141 is for all 3 of you. Try adjusting you settings for 1 person to see what the cost is per person.
