This is one of the cheapeast hostels of Dublin. You get what you have paid for: instant coffee/tea and toast for breakfast, no central heating in the room (in fairness, there was an electric heater), wifi only in reception area... Some reviews said it was filthy. I have to disagree, it was ok. The location is great. Definetely not the best hostel I´ve been too, but for one night is perfectly fine.

This place is centrally located, easy access to public transportation and well worth the fee. I even took advantage of the free tour offered. Will definitely stay here again!

Though location was great and the staff are very welcoming, the cleanliness and facilities at the hostel aren't great. One of two showers available on my level didn't work and the rooms were really messy. There's only one main common area in reception but the atmosphere there wasn't great. Hard to meet people at any time besides breakfast. There is breakfast available which is pretty decent. Another plus, the hostel offers you a lot of info about Dublin and Ireland and have tours available.

Nice clean place, staff were friendly and helpful. The lack of internet in the rooms is a big inconvenience, a couple of repeater stations would ensure full internet access. They also need to stop advertising "free airport bus" on their website and building, they no longer offer this service but it is written everywhere.

We would have liked tea making facilities and a chair in our room. Had to climb too many steps for us oldies!! Especially with luggage. Otherwise enjoyed our stay. Thank you

There was no WiFi in the dorm rooms, no mirrors in the bathrooms (which were also gross and dirty...and they smelled like pee). The shower appeared to be broken, you had to push the button every two seconds it seemed like to get water to come out...the front desk lady seemed more intent on having a conversation on her cellphone than helping me. I had an early flight and had to check out super early, and the night staff member was rude

I had a nice stay with some friends. Location wasn't bad, but not great either. Bathrooms were fine as were the rooms. The beds were extremely squeeky though. One move and the whole room was awake.

Upon arrival we were directed to leave our luggage in storage which was a tiny room down a flight of stairs where luggage was haphazardly stacked and thrown on top of each other. After waiting an extra 10-15 minutes before the room was checked for cleanliness we had to struggle up 5 flights of stairs, one of which was too narrow to fit a backpack on with luggage, only to discover room was not vacuumed and bathroom was unclean. Shower required button to be pushed continuously for water to flow.

It was a great experience. However, the people living in the hostel at that moment were not that friendly and respectful which broke a bit the atmosphere.

Very cheap to stay there which is good. I was only there one night, but I did notice some things. The thing that stuck out the most was the shower. It was broke. The water barely come out and it was a big struggle. The staff was helpful and were able to call for a taxi the night before because I needed to be at the airport at 4:30am.

Good value hostel and very helpful staff. Website advertises free shuttle service to the airport which no longer exists.

There was no lock on the first floor washroom (room 15) which put a damper on an overall good hostel experience

Hard to improve I think because of the old building however, simple things like no power pints in walls, no lift, average breakfast, not a fun happy atmosphere in common area. Everything was very old

Our room and the bathroom had damp, no wifi available from room. The lounge is reception, which is a separate building. Not the best value for money as we have had much cheaper rooms in Dublin that have been much better presented.

Everything was amazing except the broken shower. :) The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the Paddy's Wagon was the best idea ever! Thanks very much for everything.

Upon check-in, I inquired about upgrading to an available private room & my request was granted! No hassles! And they're, to my knowledge, the only hostel in Dublin with a free shuttle to & from the airport.
