Excellent hostel, the breakfast and dinner (included) were great - not the typical cereal and toast hostel breakfast.. The location was great, the only problem with the location was that the on-line directions could have been a bit better. All things considered a great hostel.
Having worked in and stayed at many hostels throughout Europe and the U.S.A. - I found the Spire to be one of the friendliest, cleanest, most well-staffed hostels ever. It is a great value for the money and the location is perfect for people new to Dublin. The staff is very helpful, friendly, and easy-going. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone.
The living room and bath rooms downstairs went through a thorough renovation. Pois, é mais linda! Breakfast and internet included, not far from the city centre... what more does one need? Staff is nice; special thanks to Rebecca and the guys!
