It is unfortunate that your time here was marred by the actions of another guest in your room, although you recorded the incident and showed the reception supervisor, you came the following morning to report the incident, which happened the previous evening? By which time the person involved had subsequently left the hostel. The only action we have left to us is to “Deny” him both on our booking system and notification to staff, from any future stays in the hostel. We were about to call the Garda, however you have asked us to call the next hostel that you were booked in, to check that the person who you had problems with was not in that hostel, after which you have subsequently left. I do not think that we were not given the opportunity to try and resolve the issue. With regards to your comments about “cultural background screening determining whether guests get (un)complete checkin socials info. 70ies South Africas b.” All guest are required to have a Government Issued Photo ID in order to Check In, if there were any issues with the person on any prior stays, a notification does come up and we do deny further stays. If the person is drunk, drugged, abusive or does not have ID and is trying to check in, we do turn them away, however we do not have a crystal ball to see how any guest will behave during their stay should they be checked in and rely on other guests to rectify a situation themselves or come and tell us and we will try to help. The Dublin International Hostel is part of hostelling international which started over 100 years and is “For Good nor For Profit” as such the ethos and mission of An Óige/Hostelling International is - To promote the education of all young people of all nations, but especially young people of limited means, by encouraging in them a greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside and an appreciation of the cultural values of towns and cities in all parts of the world, and as ancillary thereto to provide hostels or other accommodation in which there shall be no distinction of race, nationality, colour, religion, sex, class, or political opinions and thereby to develop a better understanding of their fellow men, both at home and abroad. The opportunity to travel the world and to stay somewhere, without being judged by what colour, nationality, race, sex, class, religion or political opinions is one of the most profound lines within our ethos as well as is an integral part of the Dublin International Hostel. I hope that the rest of your travels were less dramatic, than your time spent here and hope that should you return to Dublin that perhaps we could redeem ourselves in your eyes. Kindest regards and happy travels, Misty Dublin International Hostel Manager

Great hostel in Budapest and excellent format for meeting other guests over & over. A big mix Aussies/Brazilian/French/Korean/Romanian/Swiss/US banter. The British black receptionist is definitely cool, I even had to decline a cool discount offer since the whole hostel was already worth the stay and review. How even more grand is that. Fine nights out and you definitely want to watch the cinema room over there..... Can you believe they got me did the whole Harry Potter collection with them :S

Much more a long term stay place with long term stay dwellers. Affordable hostel located in zone 3 for the tube. Staff is comprehensive, but long term stayers are wierd and too inquisive more than usualy. The smaller rooms are recomended, bigger rooms lack of air flowing and it can be smelly, dirty and wet atmosphere. They have enough lockers.

A bit different hostel: this look like more a long term stay place for workers with also some young people but the latter is definitely not the main atmostphere of the season. Area is said to be refurbished but is a little bit dusty and smelly in some areas. Wifi internet is very poor, and I've seen several people having to use their laptop sitting in the stairs. Dishes/Cups are not that available. Staff looks knowledgeably experienced so this should be resolved somehow (?)

I'm sorry if your experience led you to believe we are boring, but could you be more specific as to what you found lacking? Maybe ways we could improve? We have just refurbished the hostel adding a new high-definition entertainment system, we have karaoke nights, a happening common area... What ways would you offer to improve the hostel's entertainment value? Also, we do mention the VAT in three locations (main site, terms & conditions and on the confirmation page), but our prices are also competitive with those including the VAT. I hope you did not feel as though we were trying to cheat you.
