Group of 5 of us stayed here recently. Jason was a great host and more than welcoming! The hostel was clean and had everything we needed. Excellent location, close to town centre. We would definitely stay again. Wifi not great but aside from that it was super!

This hostel was a delightful find on a busy Tuesday evening in Carrick. Bright, well thought out décor, well appointed facilities, excellent value and perfect location. In the event that it might get noisy (which it didn't) they even provide ear plugs and that reflects the attention to detail, which is apparent throughout. Jason was also really helpful and a...

Came down here on a stag, and booked a dorm out for the 8 of us. Couldn't have asked for more, the owner was incredibly helpful, professional, and full of top info. Facilities were clean and the location was great.

Stayed here on a stag, The owners couldn't have been more helpful! The place was spotless and in a great location. Great value and a good level of security with personal codes to rooms and front door! Also when organising the stag they were great to return emails and small changes in numbers were never a problem! Would highly recommend!!!

Stayed here on a stag and the place was very clean. The manager was very helpful and polite throughout. Location is also perfect. Only issue I would have, and this would be minor, is that the shower isn't great.

I recently stayed in the B-SIDE hostel for a stag-do and would not recommend it to anyone. The place was clean, but that's only because the owner never left the place crawling about on his hands and knees cleaning. I'll admit there was some drink spilled, bottles laying around and an odd glass smashed. The owner landed into the hostel... More

After a long day's cycling from Mullingar and anxious for a dry bed (as opposed to a wet tent) we arrived at B-Side Hostel and rang the number posted on the door.

The hostel was very clean, ample facilities, spotless bathrooms and very friendly staff, parking was also provided. High attention to detail. Great value for money, however despite this the place did not feel cheap. Highly recommend staying here.
