Absolutely gorgeous park-like surroundings. Entranceway to main building is nice; clerk gets you set-up with key (make sure you ask for wifi code) and breakfast voucher. Walk through lovely little courtyard, into another building with (rickety but working) elevator. Upstairs, the room very spartan; bed simple but comfy. Only 1 plug for devices. Big window that doesn't quite close, but ok in summertime. Nice breakfast, plenty of options (but no yoghurt!!!). LOVED IT HERE.

At 40 euros a night you shouldn't have to go to a dorm style bathroom.

We would definitely stay again. Good breakfast and quiet location. Located between City Centre and airport which was useful, with the centre allowing us to keep our bags behind the desk on checkout day for collection later. Well served with buses to City and airport but 15 mins walk to bus stop along a nice leafy residential road.

Awesome setting.

I thought the location on Grifith St was great: so quiet and green compared to the city centre. Being right on the 123 bus route with direct service to downtown was very convenient and the walk into town was even doable. The breakfast, which was included in the price of my room was amazing! Full Irish with a nice coffee. What a nice place to stay.

Very clean and well-organized hostel, but very quiet when I was there (I barely saw anyone!). No bad comments, really, everyone was very friendly and accommodating. This is not a central Dublin location but it suited my purposes just fine.

It's a very serene place. It's nicely tucked away from the city centre but really convenient to get to with bus stop for the 123 bus just outside. Staff were great, friendly and helpful.

Perfect for staying on outskirts of Dublin. They are spare rooms in the dormitory of a small college. Included full Irish breakfast in cafeteria, 7-8 euro value. Huge computer lab where guests have access to internet. Costa coffee in the lobby. About one hour walk to downtown, 2.35 euro bus to O'Connell St. 24 hour concierge. Two large TV rooms and small kitchen areas with microwave but no oven. Very quiet, no kids making noise all night. Ideal for people who don't like the noise of hostels.

nice location, looks like hogwarts, helpful and friendly staff, price was really ok! the only negative thing is that it was not clean - at breakfast the table and chairs had breadcrumbs from yesterday and the hall was generally not very clean.

The Marino Centre is a excelent hostel, with good singular bedrooms, nice breakfest with a lot of options. Allan, the recepcionist when I arrived was very friendly and usefull, he gave to me a map, and he drawed there the places that I should visit in Dublin, showed me the bus stop and another informations that I asked. The only thing there is not so nice is the location of Hostel, It's away from city center, I had to take a bus (EUR$2,35) and spent about 15m.

Everything was perfect during my 10 days with Marino for the St Patrick 2014 in Dublin. Soon in Marino, Gilles from Bordeaux (FRANCE)
