I thought the price of 50pp for a bed in a twelve bed en suite dorm is steep, but the location really was excellent. Free sangria/beer on the terrace on a saturday night and a free basic breakfast was a bonus. The rooms/bathrooms aren't that modern but are well kept and clean. I liked the set up of the en...

I had such a bad experience here that I felt compelled to create an account and voice my displeasure. The staff treated me rudely and squeezed me for 80 EUR on a cancellation technicality. I was yelled at by a manager when I was simply inquiring if i could pay a reduced fee or have it waived. If you're okay...

This hostel is very conveniently located near the spire in Dublin (Hence the name). Beds are good, not a lot of outlets in the dorm, that I remember. Breakfast a bit weird, since there are more cookies than bread (maybe that was just that day?). Friendly staff. Check where you book, since price difference between sites can be quite big.

I spent a week here and nothing went wrong. Staff were wonderful, even when I came home and couldn't find my key in my bag they helped me, the kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were what you'd expect. The showers in the bathroom were good but every time you press the button there's two seconds of either too...

This hostel was a great deal and very conveniently located. Some locals mentioned that it's not the greatest part of town, so we avoided walking home late alone, but we never felt unsafe. The reception is stellar, they have tons of information and are extremely professional and helpful. The best service I've had at a hostel yet. Beds and bathrooms...

Spent by myself 5 days in this hostel this summer. The experience was really cool! The hostel is in the centre of Dublin, in a very quite area. The staff is super, very nice people.

Great location and really easy to find! Staff were friendly. Breakfast was toast, cereal, a fruit juice and hot drinks which was fine. We stayed in a double room which was below the standard expected for the price we paid. It had a wardrobe and mirror but the bed definitely could have done with upgrading. The mattress and duvet seemed...

Really great place! Good location, serious full on breakfast (eggs and everything), clean, friendly. What more could you ask for? Definately recommending this place to my friends. Looks small from the outside but quite big actually.
