It was a good location with nice staff and nice clean rooms but it was really loud. We were kept up until 4 am both nights of our stay due to noise from below. If it wasn't for the noise we would stay again but that was a dealbreaker.


Fine hostel, reasonably short walk to the downtown area, breakfast was reasonably priced, and they even came in and made our bed and gave us clean towels each day!


Second time I've stayed at the Townhouse. Second time I've enjoyed my stay


The hostel was nicely situated. The blackout curtains in our room were fantastic after a 10 hour flight. Breakfast was fine. The staff very helpful in answering queries about Dublin.


Really enjoyed the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. Would stay here again

Very good location, very friendly and helpful staff, and very good value for money. Shame about the breakfast though! Better quality sausages/bacon and it would be a definite winner!

Was very disappointed as there was what seemed to be a smoking area of a pub located outside of our window and it was so loud and impossible to get to sleep before 1.30 at night then when that was quiet the fire alarm went off in the hostel twice aswell we were checking out the next morning at 4.45 as to go to the airport so we got no sleep.. No apology from reception on our leaving about the alarm either . Would not recommend this place ... 1 out of 10


The room had a high standard, with comfortable beds. We liked the nice baryton with shower, the good light system in rhe room and that we had a be boiler and Tea. The lokarion was good and the standard high according to the price. Two small drawbacks was the breakfast and the noice in night from the pub nextdoor.


A beautiful hostel/B&B. Our room was nice although I think the window was leaky because it got very cold during the night. The breakfast is unremarkable but it's all you can eat and served during a reasonable time period. The staff was very nice and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The location was great - I thoroughly recommend it.

Perfectly located right in the city center our stay here was everything we could have hoped for, safe, friendly, and extremely pleasant. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. The building itself is superb being an old townhouse from the distant past and the common areas are wonderfully furnished. Breakfast is fantastic. The staff too were very helpful, especially Karl and the man from Croatia. Highly recommended all round.


Breakfast could be a bit more diverse and also continental.
