Good hostel near the pubs in Dublin. The building is old but was also adding some extra atmosphere. The persons behind the reception were really friendly. Wireless is only available on the ground floor and there is a nice area were you can watch television or a DVD with other persons. There were three computers available which were slow but fast enough to just look something up or else you can still use a mobile phone and connect that one to the wireless.

I stayed in 106 or 105 i think.Took ages to get into room with key.Internet could be cheaper.There seems to be sometimes problems find peoples bookings.The washing facility was broken at time also though sometimes this happens.

Full house New Years Eve yet I am unaware of any problems arising with guests bookings and everyone was well looked after. Regarding our washing machine facilities: Machine is fine, the local council had switched off the areas water for essential maintenance so we had no control over that. They sorted it as quickly as they could. Showers were unaffected as we have a huge storage tank. Internet is Free, cant get any cheaper..and it's e-fibre 150mb super speed! Happy New Year.

Top friendly staff went out of their way to look after us. Nice of the lad on the desk on Friday night to sort my old man a cuppa before he went to bed.

We stayed four nights in the four courts with a group of four (wow, so much fours) an we've been there for vacation. Great place, clean, friendly staff, great shower - and you have just 5-10 minutes to Temple Bar and O'Connol Street.

Staff was super nice, and responsive to any requests as best as they could. In room toilet/shower was not very clean in our 8 person room, but it didn't help that one roommate was puking in there for the better part of an hour on our last night. Other "public" showers and toilets came in handy. These seemed more clean, except for some visible mold in one of the two showers which I used. Be prepared for some sleep interruption, especially on weekend nights. Non-weekend - reasonably quiet.

I loved this hostel and the multiple rec rooms. Friendly staff and very clean living conditions. It was a great location to walk to any part of the city and as long as you have some ear plugs for late night guest arrivals/outside traffic then it could not be a better booking.

We booked a twin ensuit room, expected two separate beds. But there was a bunk bed instead. I think the room was too small.

The staff was friendly and easily answered any questions I had. Location is great because it's near city centre although because it is right on the quay, sometimes traffic can wake you. Aside from the Irish guys coming in and yapping it up at 5am, I slept quite well.

When us Irish people start talking we find it hard to stop...and at that time of night most would talk to a wall...just be glad you didn't make eye contact or you would probably still be there, nodding politely. Glad you enjoyed yourself and enjoy the rest of your travels.

bathrooms in the rooms where really dirty and i was quite annoyed that there was only one light for the whole room, usually each bed has a small light. the lockers underneath the beds where so loud when opening them, that everyone woke up if someone had to get uo early or came back in the middle if the night.

I must admit to never getting quite annoyed about a light bulb whilst on holidays. If you are a light sleeper (no pun intended) or easily disturbed it is recommended that you book a smaller room rather than our largest, cheapest and thus most popular room..on a weekend... in a capital city...because chances are someones going to arrive back drunk. Treat yourself....it's your holiday so make the most of it.

the hostel has a pretty good location, near to a bunch of postcards and the beds are excellent. the 4-lits room me and my sister stayed was pretty spacy and clean. they also had lockers inside the bedroom, which was great. the bathroom was also good, even with the eco-friendly shower (or because of it) - just there wasn't any floor-towel. the bad things were the no-that-functional heater and the early-ending breakfast: there's not much sense in ending at 9h30 if the town only function past-10h.

. good hostel in a good location, right on the river so really easy to find and close to temple bar. only complaint - i don't like having to pay for coffee in hostels, i think that should be complimentary

Thought they were very organized. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Employees were very gracious.

There were only two shower stalls and two toilet stalls for about 30 people. However, the atmosphere was very fun and it was a great place to meet people. It has a pretty central location, very near to Temple Bar and easy to get to and from the airport.
