Lovely idea to help people with disabilities and give them jobs. Deserves support. Hostel is remote. Great for a traveller who wants to be away from everything. It's 2 stops on the train from a shop! But when you are organised and there it is lovely and easy to meet people.Breakfast is included

when i arrived at reception about 10pm there were 4 staff behind the desk and i was ignored. I went to the room and there was no heat on. It was a cold night

Hi thanks for the review. All our staff have been spoken to about this. With regard to heat - we usually have the rooms warmed up for guests and heat the building as neccessary so apologies this was not the case for your room. I hope the other aspects of your stay were enjoyable. Many thanks, Yvonne

The staff were very nice and helpful. It's a nice area. Can be a little noisy from people drinking on the streets but most people will want to be out at night anyway. If you want to go to bed early and sleep, this may not be the best hostel for you. It's very nice and relaxed there

the hostel has more places where you need to use your card to pass through than any other place i stayed. The breakfast finishes at 10 which is early and the checkout is also very early at 10. The keycards are disabled exactly at 10. There is an announcment on loudspeaker to check out ayt 9.45 and housekeeping knock on the door to say to check out at 10

Thank you for taking the time to comment, We do have security and room doors to ensure our guests safety. The breakfast is from 7am to 11am. Should you return to Dublin we would be happy to look after you again. Best regards, Dublin International Hostel

The 10 am check out and 10am breakfast finish time is very early in my opinion. To get to breakfast before 10 you need to have cleared the room and checked out before breakfast.

the receptionist was complaining that everyone was arriving at the same tome to check in. People put arrival time on reservation so it shouldn't be a surprise especially after 10pm. He said my room was on 3rd floor, and there was no lift. It was on the 2nd. Breakfast finishes at 9.30. too early

i paid for a second night which was 3 days after the first. i had a receipt but the receptionist said there was no record of it at first and had to ring the other one who was prepaid! Also i was asked a long time after check in what my age was! Then i as told that people over 40 were not allowed in a dorm, and it was the same in Holland etc. I stayed in one in Holland and neirther had anythin about any age limit. How ridiculous anyway?

my bed allocation allocation was not changed despite me pointing out that there were bottom bunks free. I was told it couldn't be changed. The bunks were vacant the following morning. The hostel replied to my email about it saying that the beds were allocated. Allocations can be changed prior to arrival....I didn't arrive till after 11pm

This place always has cold military style foreign staff. It never has change at reception. Instead of a welcoming feeling, you get a cold intimidating one. The bathrooms are always smelly, cold and dirty

i had asked for a bottom bed but was not allocated one. The eceptionist kindly changed it which meant i could have been allocated it in the beginning. When i had arrived to check in around 11 am i was told i couldn't check in until 2pm. However, while i waited in the reception area, i saw another person being checked in immediately.....

i booked a 4 bed dorm and was put in a six bed. When i came back to reception they said the room must have been changed, and although it was a six bed, that there wouldn't be six people in it. Then i reported that there was no heat in the room at 6pm and was told the heat doesn't come on til 8! Check out was 10am and everyone except me had checked out early. i asked to stay in the room till 11 and was told NO!

The guy who checked me in was very nice and helpful. There was only one place to use toilets, which was on the ground floor and i was on the 2nd. They were smelly and the showers were built wrong, so there was always a big puddle in them. i wasn't told that checkout was at 10, and a staffmember burst into my room (which i shared, and everyone else was sleeping also) to ask if i was checking out at 9.50 and that i had 5 minutes to go to reception! There was no TV and only a small place to sit in

there was breakfast included on website when i booked. i was shown the breakfast room on check in. i went for breakfast and got tray and cereal i was in the q for hot breakfast, was asked for card. i was told that i wasn't entitled to breakfast. i said i was told i was, and i now have cereal on the tray. and embarrassed me and i had to leave. There was a smell of cigarette smoke on the way to the bedroom. The lights are controlled by reception so there is no switch to switch on or off lights

View Property Reply

Thanks for your feedback and believe me no one was trying to embarrass you at all. You paid 7.99 altogether between a deposit and room rate and nowhere on the website for this price does it say you are offered breakfast free. You were told on checkin that you could purchace breakfast if you felt like it in the morning. The lights are controlled from reception and that is why there are individual lights on each of the beds. Hope to see you back here sometime in the future.

There is no kitchen as advertised on hostelworld. There is a fridge and sink only, no cooker, cutlery, crockery, etc. The staff spoke no English. My room door was open when i returned in the evening. i had left my passport, boarding pass and some money there. They were not stolen. i told the manager who spoke English on the phone and he said ''sorry''

i didnt appreciate being on the top of a 3 bed bunk! There was only one big light which meant everyone was disturbed when people turned it on when coming in at night. There was little space for luggage or even for 2 people to pass in the room

being flatly refused a bed before "pm,having phoned to ask the day before and also on arrival was really not appreciated having travelled all night. i know that with check out at 10am that some beds are available soon after. a bit of consideration would have made my stay much more enjoyable.
