I stayed in 6 different hostels in Dublin in the past 2 years and the Four Courts is one of the best I've seen! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and clean, with a private bathroom included. The atmosphere is warm, even if the common areas are a bit too small. The location is great to my taste, close to the city center but away enough to avoid the noise.

Very good hostel in the city center of Dublin

Spacious, well maintained and run. The newer technology with the key card swipe makes life so much easyer and more secure than a key code or key.

Had a great stay. Lived in the 16 mixed bedroom for two nights. I would recommend this place for everyone. The breakfast was good and it had a good variation for a hostel. The staff was amazing and I recommend to take the day tour if you would like to know and see a little bit of Dubli n. The only thing bad was the lack of soap and the squeaky storage boxes under the beds.

I reccomend for long term rather than short term bookings in dorms. There is a catchy homely feel here that can catch you off guard and make you forget you checkout time! A wonderful place for group and bonding time with friends or colleagues.

Stayed for 2 nights and had a 4 bed dorm to just ourselves meaning we also got an ensuite, which was really good of them. The only reason it is average for atmosphere is that there were big groups of spaniards who clearly already knew each other and didnt want to socialise, but this is nothing to do with the hostel folks, all in all a great place to base yourself!

Shower situation was abominable, washroom seems to have never been cleaned. Had personal belongings tampered with by other hostel stayers.

The large dorm on a weekend night will no doubt get busy and messy as your room mates prepare to go out for to party. The bathroom is small but because of this it is checked numerous times throughout the day. Personal items should not be left in the public shower space that other guests have to use. They may have thought your shampoo was left behind for use. There are also extra showers at the end of each corridor. You booked last minute, it is better to book earlier for a wider choice of rooms.

You won't fit in the bed if you're taller than 1.70 m.

Staff is very helpful and welcoming! We stayed in a private room with its own bathroom and it was excellent - very clean and even had its own little tea station! It's also in the perfect location to be able to walk easily to all the main points of interest in Dublin.

Excellent hostel! We stayed there for two nights and surprisingly our double room, although with bunk bed instead of double bed, had an en-suite bathroom with toilet and sink! We only had to leave our bedroom for the shower. Also a great and simple breakfast for free and good internet access.

The luggage room is on the lower ground floor to which there is no lift. Quite a struggle for girls! Some security lockers could be helpful.

Very good hostel. Individual locker below the bed. Clean rooms and bathroom. Towels are for rent, as usually. I storaged my luggage for free ++. Location is ok. It's a 15mins walk from the center. The bus from the airport stops at the door of the hostel.

The circular staircase, while awesome looking and fun, was brutal when your room was on the 3rd floor. But they do have an elevator so if you're not a glutton for punishment, take that route, instead. ;-) The staff were all VERY friendly and helpful. They gave us a map and then directed you to whatever you were looking for on the map, which made everything really easy to find. We also took part in their fabulous free tour of the city AND their pub crawl! Wonderful!

Stay here!! This place was clean, safe, in a great location and to top it all off the staff was amazing. They're there to help you with whatever questions you have. Great value for your money. It's in a great location you can walk to main attractions. If I ever go back to Dublin I'd definitely stay here again

A big hostel with lots going on. Good breakfast, wifi, and security. It's a little farther from city center than other hostels but still easily within walking distance. It was noisier and more lively than I really wanted at the end of my trip, but has a good atmosphere in general, I think. Staff were helpful and friendly.
