The four courts hostel is very close to the center and has a very affordable price. The atmosphere is friendly, even though at dinner time the kitchen can be a little over crowded.

I go quite often to Dublin and I always stay at this hostel. It's a basic place, but position is very good and prices are cheaper than many others hostels. Breakfast should be better

The rooms were okay, but the bathrooms were disgusting. The toilets were constantly overflowing and one morning both toilets were un-useable. Staff was nice and this hostel was in a good location, but I would not stay here again.

I only stayed here for one night as a stopover between travels but it was a great hostel nonetheless. The front desk was very helpful and pointed me towards a great pub down the road. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were acceptable.

What makes a hostel is its people and FourCourts was a great example of that! Very friendly and helpful people working there. The only ´bad´ thing for us was the 75 steps because the elevator was out of order but it was not such a big deal in the end. As far as the cleanliness, location and facilities are concerned, everything worked pretty good. We would definitely visit again in the future.

Had a pleasant stay at this hostel. It's not really a loud hostel comparing to those that located righ at the middle of the city centre. It has a mix combination of the young peeps & the senior folks which could be the reason why it's not as loud & noisy as other youth hostels. Staffs were mostly friendly and treated me with good courtesy. Breakfast was generous & made available pretty early. The only downside is limited number of shower rooms but overall it's still a great hostel to stay!

The third floor had very very very bad wifi connection. The shower was too small. Beds and staff were good.

The hostel itself was nice - big kitchen/spacious rooms etc. However, the majority of people staying there have actually been living there for 2-3 months and are people looking for jobs and/or learning English. Therefore, as a solo traveler there wasn't really anyone to do the "touristy" attractions with and most of the people worked during the day. The people were all still really nice, just not ideal as a solo traveler

The place had convenient facilities and the staff is friendly. Although, some staff members seemed rather laid-back in regards to security, meaning who gets in and out. The location of the place is good, just like ten minutes away from Temple Bar. Breakfast is barely ok.

It was a nice place and very good located. Unfortunately our sink did not work that well, stuff did not want to go through the sink and therefore it was less clean and comfortabel. I liked the breakfast! There was a nice atmosphere. I think it is good value for money.

Everything was good, but just the cleanliness in the toilet and bathroom was poor, because the cleaner came just one time by day for a bathroom shared by 28 persons, it's not enough and the cleaning wasn't done very good.

Good Hostel at all, well located and secure. The free breakfast is good. The cleanliness is OK. But the beds are noisy and even with negatives temperatures the heating doesn't work.

The room for 12 people (female) was terrible, but wasn't ur fault. People leave the room in a total mess. Maybe there should be any regulations in ur hostel's rules to keep the room clean (as it s written on the kitchen's wall). Helpful staff is a plus there.

Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Although everything else was great! Definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a pub crawl too. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is spot on..close to Temple bar and the Guinness Storehouse. They charge for towels.

I would like to thank the staff once again for their hospitality as for the second time staying it was great. Toilet/Shower facilities are great, there a lift to get you upstairs to your room and good chill out rooms. The hostel is very close to all the main attractions and to the good bars. I would stay here again if I return to Dublin! Thanks again!
