I like this hostel which I think is a bit too expensive for what it gives you. The room are too packed and the place have awful cleaning standards. However, there is an incredible craic around the place. The bar is good fun and staff are nice. Location is nice.

We were supposed to be all in the same but had to split in different group. Both dorm were dirty and unsafe. What's the point of having keys if all balconies connect to each other... Staff was mostly unfriendly, alto one of them when out with us. Had to make our own bed and bring up stuff from the reception. No common room so you are not meeting other guests. Will not come back

Still like the hostel, but the atmosphere changed a lot since my last visit. It miss the hype of an europe famous hostel and there is a big lack of atmosphere. Simple but clean roomes. LIke the roof top terrace alto lights up there would be appreciated.

I love the fact that you always know what you will get from st christophers. You get nice comfy beds, amzing atmosphere a great and cheap bar and good staff. Only bad thingabout this place is that both terrace are almost always close. Its a tiny bit expensive too.

I love this hostel and been using it as one of my homebase traveling around the world for the last 5 years. I visit it at least 90 times and always had a great time. However, it changed lately. It closes for two months for financial reason and reopen lately. They dont have the garden anymore which was its best attribute. Because of that the commons rooms are full to the extremme. The staff doesnt look like they give a sh.t about making guest happy. Could go on,Sadly will have to find a new place

Well the location is great, next to the beach and its great wave. The staff is just not great. They don't seem to know what they are doing. Could be much cleaner. Was not giving the type of room I booked for and it is way to expensive for what I got.

This hostel is a legend. 1st time I went there Damien gave me a ride to the cliffs after his night shift. This time was kidnapt by two overseas staff for a night walk around the city and some good laugh. Better hostel that the city.

Lovely owner. It was a good place to sleep for one night. It gets a bit crowded in a tiny appartment when full. Not of fan of people sleeping on the patio because there is no more beds. The pankakes and baileys were good. They dont really do the activities mentioned.

I like the place even though its more of a guesshouse... THe staff is super friendly and the location is ok. Free internet. Only one bath room which is a problem...lockers in the rooms which is very nice. Sometime we felt a bit bad when we saw the owner watching the tv in the lounge we felt out of place. The fact that the staff is smoking inside on the first floor which is a major prob for us.

More of a guess house that a hostel. It is a good place to have a quiet stay and at a very cheap place. You are minutes away from the old town and they do lift to and from the train station. THe only prob is that we met no other guess and that we were bored a little. But, for that price and comfort its worth it...

The location is great, but that is it. It took us more that a hour to check in because the reception was trying to sell three tours to everyone and was enjoying talking to others. She then agree to show us our room which was in another building. First thing we found out was that there was no door to the dorm and 4 more beds that what we booked for. They agreed to tell me they overbooked my reservation later on. The room they finally gave us was full of unused things (tv, chairs,) FIND BETTER!!!

Great location, very big and free lockers in the room. Because there is lockers in the room, people were repacking their bags all nights... It was clean, free breakfast and Internet. I just felt that the staff had more fun that the actual guest...looking for someone at the desk and finding her in the dvd room watching a movie is not something normal. Still better that most hostel in London

Amazing common room, good staff...a bit pricy, 12 euro for a lift to glendalough is a bit too expensive...some day tours from Dublin are 20. Met nice people in a spacious room....Only problem is that half the people in our room were sleeping with their coat on, way too cold!

Hi, Thank you for your comments. We were unaware that the big room was cold so we will certainly put extra heating into it. We want our guest to feel at home in our hostel so this is a very useful review. Many thanks. and a safe journey home.

Location because of the transport they provide. To my point of view, providing a transport is nice, but we do not see you in the hostel guys. The staff is simply not there....I think there is better place, but this place is very cheap. The beds are good. No lock on the door, the hostel never locked at night...This place could be great if the staff have a bit more consideration.

Amazing staff. They made my laundry after we spend the day in the mountains around the hostel. They also served us delicious free food that night. The room was big and spacious. The hostel is 6km away from anything, but you can reach it using a tour compagny if you have no car. If it would have been closer to the national park I would have say PERFECT, but it is damn close from perfection.

Spend more time at the wombats and the Euro that at this hostel. Had a lot of problems, including having to redo my beds twice at midnight cuz the cleaning lady only made half the beds in the room in the morning and people took ours. Funny enough to see the reception clerk having shoot at the bar when people wait for her at the reception. The barmaid save the day.

I had a lot,lot of fun over. Met only great people and the location + roof terrace is great. I think the hostel has a lot of potential.Only problem is no locker in some room cuz the staff lose the key...no lock to the doors of all dorm..sone door with no bathroom, had to knock on someone else door to ask him if you can use his toilette. A 8 bed dorm with 9 persons for 3 nights cuz the staff dont ask for id when you get in and there is no lock to any dorm door... It is cheap tho...plz new staff

I offer him to stay somewhere else cause we where moving he was not interested. I told him to come by when he was in Valencia and I would pay the deposit and he never came I could not debit it on the credit card because I did not charge it, and he would not give me the bank account number so I could deposit his 5 euro deposit. Hostelworld has also written and he does not answer. We do not have a magic dove to give him the money. I am sorry you do not understand the constant correspondece we have had since May

Worst money value hostel I have ever been to. 28 euro a night for a 4 bed dorm where you will wake every morning at 9am cuz the mate gets in without knocking. the staff was rude...the mate ask me to leave the public kitchen cus she wanted to change...some people told me there was mouse in their room...worst breakfast ever...they serve the same bread during 1 week... there was not even 4 plate in the kitchen...this hostel is a joke. you can rent a cheap hotel room for 60 euros...just go somewhere else...

Location is not bad..walking distance to all you might need. Staff is nice but not there a lot. Love both kitchen and the overall safe atmosphere. However, there were huge groups, the average age was way over 40 years old and a five bed dorm with a family of 3 is really, even worst when they are in fact 8 and there are not all in the same dorm...not a good feeling to wake up with 7 of them in your dorm at morning.

View Property Reply

Great that you liked the atmosphere! There is staff in the reception from 8-12 and 16-22, if we have to do something in the house we put up signs to tell our guests where we are so you can find us, sorry if this didn�t work out for you. We are more of a family hostel and there is also big sport events in the city during July, which attracts more families. Too bad that the other guests in your room invited in their friends. Welcome another time!

Well its not a guest house, its a cheap hotel. The front desk are rude and dont want to help you. You almost feel bad for asking a simple question or ask for a map. The room are basic, but there is many stupid rules such as no food storage in your room. You wont meet anybody there. Its more expensive that hostel around. However its good to have a break in a double room and its very calm. Dont like the location, 20 minute walk uphill from the train station....not going there again for sure.

Nice place. Like the staff location was good, you can walk there if you like walking...35 min from the train station. great lockers under the beds... Curt the owner is a real backpacker and is hostel gives you what a backpacker need.

Like this place, It is very modern, they have a nice garden and great staff. The kitchen is modern and very big. They provide day tours and the location is excellent. However, there is a lot of kids and many school or community group which is annoying by moment. They don�t accept alcohol inside the building so peoples are drinking in their dorm. So it can be a bit noisy. Anyway, just because of the staff I will go back (the hostel is very modern).

It is not a hostel. There is no reception and no staff...only a lady wo is doing all and her old dog. There is less than 10 persons all the time and if you meet them during your stay you are a lucky. It is a nice break from the hostel lift but it is not fun! very secure place. Tracy is great. But I will go somewhere else next time for sure.

Location is great! Staff dont offer much help. Just didnt slept for 2 night. 18 beds dorm are bad,bad,bad.. They have full time guest and they full the dorm in the middle of the night with bunch of old guy walk in.

View Property Reply

Hey Nick, Glad you liked the location, although i am a little puzzled about your assumption about f/t guests, as during the time you stayed there was no one in the 18bed dorm for any long stays..... As far as noise goes, if you chose to stay in the cheapest dorm with the most beds at a w/end, you would have to be prepared for a bit of noise as oppose to say staying in a 4 bed dorm, 18 x people = a bit of noise... As far as old guys, no record of anyone a bit older staying during your stay, but if you ever have a problem with noise or sleeping just come and talk to us on reception where we will endevour to rectify the situation... Come and see us again real soon. Regards Hatters Crew
