due to an error our first night rooms were apparently overbooked. as we arrived in the evening ,the night watch , did arrange an other hotel , which was terrible (4 people on the floor in one room ) and far away from town. Next day the manager of Townhouse did arrange compensation and solved all in a professional and satisfactionery way (seems he was cheated by this other hotel ) and the rest of our stay in the Townhouse was perfect, nice rooms, clean , quiet.


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.


Stayed in the townhouse. It is more like a hotel. Wifi was average in the room. Kitchen wasn't great due to the lack of pots, pans and plates/cutlery. Location is good and staff are friendly/helpful.


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.
