We arrived for breakfast at 9.45 a.m approx.The hot breakfast was v. overcooked , this needn't happen if food was cooked at stages rather than all tog. earlier in the morn.

Quiet hostel, large twin rooms and lovely grounds but let down by cleanliness - our room hadn't been cleaned, sheets changed, bin emptied etc prior to our arrival. We arrived late at night but this wasnt addressed throughout our stay. While there are tea making facilities, sink and fridge available, the only cooking facilities are a microwave and toaster.


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.


A very nice stay.......in fact excellent value. Wonderful staff.

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.
