I was robbed at reception of this place, my rucksack with laptop and passport just dessapeared, the employers aren't prepared for this kind of situation, also the garda is not the best police of the world... Fui roubado nessa merda, atras da recepcao, computador, passaporte e etc, funcionarios despreparados, hostel nao me deu suporte algum, definitivamente nao recomendo! Melhor dormir na rua ! A policia aqui e ineficiente, espere nao precisar!

Very small hostel but location is perfect! Right in the middle of Temple Bar area. If you don't like a lot of noise then probably avoid it especially on weekends but that can't be helped.. it has own bathrooms attached to rooms which is good but rooms are small.


Great location, comfortable beds


I was in a room with 10 very young people. Most of which were 17-19 years old, so it was a bit too young of an environment for me. The room was a total mess, and they give you ONE key for all 10 people to share which is totally unrealistic. At one point someone lost the key so we were all screwed getting into the room until it was found. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned in several days, so it was just wasn't a very good place overall. Would not recommend


A very good hostel, in the center of temple bar. Really nice place, with many facilities, tea at any time, quite clean. A staff very pleasant in globality. Unfortunatly, nothing to secure our luggage in the room and only one key per room, even if it's a 10 beds room...

Good points - excellent location, nice kitchen, Bad points - 1 key for a 12 bed room? Really?! We went to bed at two in the morning the first night and couldn't get any sleep because of people banging on the door trying to get inside the room. The location is excellent, but it also means that you hear outside noise until 3am. This was our 4th trip to Dublin, and it was the worst hostel so far.


The front desk staff were absolutely terrible. Extremely unhelpful in almost every sense of their job. And the wifi doesn't work here! I had a room on the 4th floor and the wifi would repeatedly lose it's connection, even if it ever connected in the first place. A HUGE annoyance at this hostel is that each room only has one key. This means that if somebody goes up to the room, they keep the key, and have to let anybody else in who arrives to the room. Only redeeming quality here is the location!


The key system is ridiculous and unsafe

They only have 1 key per room, so the first who arrives gets the key and there is always people getting locked out, people having to knock to get in, anyway, a mess! The staff simply does not give a s*** about you, they were rude, made fun of us in our faces for asking some stuff, if people are being noisy and not letting anyone sleep they just don´t care at all! There are no lockers, the rooms and kitchen are VERY small (there was never place during breakfast time) and the price was NOT low.
