Very nice Hostel with a great value for money. But if you take a double bed, you need to be very happy with your partner, 'cause the beds are quite narrow. Nevertheless, I would definitly stay there again. Breakfast is good and even if you don't like irish breakfast you'll find the bread or rhe yoghurt amazing.

Friendly staff and excellent location. I made a very good friend while staying at the Globetrotters, met people from all over and got to know an amazing city. Overall a great first experience in Dublin!

Unfortunately not enough sockets, only three in a 12 bed room. Nevertheless very attractive outdoor area.


Location is good and beds are comfy. Kitchen facilities are a little chaotic and there wasn't much of an atmosphere unless you were interested in watching sports. breakfast definitely should be included. For Ireland, even Dublin, you can get better value for the price.


The place was nice. I staid a Couple different times and for the most part not too social. The internet was good. Not any conscientious plugs for charging electronics.


Very nice place to stay! Good breakfast and nice facilities. We would definitely stay there again.


Great location as it's super close to the city centre and temple bar. Rooms are small but good storage spaces. Facilities could be cleaner.


Can walk from the hostel to any part of the city you want. Dublin was so beautiful and would definitely return. The room was a bit small and my bunk's light didn't work. It wasn't too much of a problem anyways, and I really enjoyed it there.
