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.
Overrated is a small word for this location. Miss the day Eu famous hostel were truly special. Night staff were terrible, seriously check in was the worst hostel experience I had in a long time. Could be better lets say
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.
A bit too expensive and as much as I like the rooftop terrace, it gets really noisy at noght. Not great when your dirm is right beside. Other then that, it is a nice place.
Love this hostel. One of the best in the world. Smoking room and bar are great. The craic is great and lockers in every rooms are appreciated. It is however getting to expensive for very large dorms.
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.
Think of going to your grandma's place. Its about as comfortable... I like the place. You will meet goop people the pubs down the road are great and they give you free bikes to see the beautiful region.
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.
I like this hostel and went there several times. The location is great. The staff are nice and it is right beside the best pubs. You can get a free bike to ride around the burrens or to the cliffs. Could use lockers...
Great hostel. Going there so often that ot is my second home. Staff is nice and hope they get thegarden, real quick we all miss it a lot
Good hostel for the London standard. It is simply not as good as the Astor Museum. There is not much of a place to relax and or a calm room. Staff is great. Could go back.

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.
Good location and great staff. Love their bar! We met great people. I could use a door and a lock on my room door. I love the dog.
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
Clean, nice staff, great location....love the place....only prob the school group

Like the place. Also like the staff...I am just sick of being around school/sports group. The atmosphere is affected. Free Internet. Will be back, but it will be the last time if there is another group
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!
Ok hostel, nothing really bad, nothing really good. Slept well, internet is free...close to city centre... The hostel had no real ambiance, not much guess too....
Great location and offers a lot of characters, staff is good, but still can do better. This is one of the best in the world....just wish they keep doing the small things that makes it better. Alone four nights in a 16 beds dorm cannot ask for better.
Good hostel, great price value. For 10 euros a night everything is perfect. Staff is great, room are a bit too crawlded at time, kitcheen is a bit old. Will go back for sure.
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 small hostel in a great location to visit Clare. The staff is great, free bikes, great tips, met great people. Simply Ireland at his best. Two great pub close by and the bus stop right in front.
Great hostel! very modern, next to great pubs. To tell how good is the staff...one of them gave me a ride to the cliff of moher after his night shiff.
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.
Good hostel, nice staff and bar..has a kitchen which is nice. good..a bit too expensive tho
Close of the main train station...nice room with big lockers...good bar...nice party hostel
The forth floor is amazing and I am glad we were upgrade to it. The rest of the hostel is kind of dirty and old. Nice staff, nice location, free internet
Great hostel. Very clean and the staff is simply great. A+ to steve that help us a lot. Big lockers for free in the room, free breakfast,free Internet...a great market 1 block away. Very cheap!
Relax place in a great location. Super cheap private room. Quiet, free Internet. Not a lot of opportunity to meet other travelers.
A bit outside the city center, but one of the best hostel I have ever been in. The staff is good, free Internet, free laundry, etc. Nice kitcheen, smoking lounge and common room. There is just way too many kids. I guess it is better during the summer.
Good small hostel....very quiet! lots of caracter, free internet,nice tv lounge.. the lockers under the beds are nice but just a bit too small for a normal backpack.
did not sleep at the 3 monkeys house...it is close. they send me to the jjsyard hostel which was perfectly located and the staff was amazing. It was also cheap. People were nice...
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
not better the second time but still very quiet...good for a good night of sleep in a very cheap hostel.
Good clean secure place to the North Africa standard. In the old Medina with the people like the locals say... room are nice but the area can get noisy at night great staff, a bit crazy at time but love the free tea and breakfast every day. free internet
Really good price, not to far from the city center. free breakfast, free Internet on a computer that dont really work...a staff that really dont know the city..not even able to tell us where to make our laundry or where is the closest internet cafe..who is 5 building away for your info... a room with a sheet as a door... good price tho
Good location, nice staffm nice room....no extra service...good place at a bit too expensive price.
Great location...nicest roof terrace I have seen in an hostel. Amazing place. No wonder why they are a EUrope famous Hostel
great small hostel...lots of fun...not the place to go if you want to sleep in a quiet place. staff is great except the cleaning lady who is agressive and cant mind her own buisness. will go back there. I like tiny hostel.
After an issue on the time of arrival, the staff was nice. Very cheap double room...the cheapest I have ever had in europe...good value...the hostel need fresh paint and loads of minor reparation.
Good location, great room. Ok price... didnt feel like the staff knew their city well... not open from noon to 6pm every weekend...
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...
nice staff,very clean and secure...far from anything
not exactly the best location, but the area is great...I would have have put a better mark if there was not a huge spanish group who were all way over 40. Met nice people...good hostel for the small price you pay. Will go back...
Great staff, best bed I have ever had in a hostel. Free Internet...Free breakfast at a ok price. will book there for sure next time I am going to Gothenburg
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.
Well no staff...only reason I was there was the good price...no caracter, no common room, not even a table to eat on....not a good place to meet people...
Staff is rude most of the time and the hostel is ok for the price you pay it...you have to pay for anything you need and there is no common room, but I met very nice people in my room.
Great location, good staff, nice vibe...will be back again....loads of special night..and a free upgrade!
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.
Great place. An old hostel that look better every year. Tehy won several price in the last years and lots a bit of caracter but offer more services. I like the place and will go back...you meet great people all the time and its worth paying a bit more that somewhere else. Security is by far the best I have ever see. Can be better but it is still great
Great place. No front desk,you almost feel like you are in someone house and he is ranting you one of the room. It is amall hostel where the very young management will do anything to help ya. Itis the cheapest place out there and everything is free.In your dorm, you will have a full equip bathroom, kitcheen with load of free food, laundry machine,adryer, a computer and a tv. All that for 7£!!!!
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.
Nice place, the location is amazing about only 50m from the train station and 1 min of walk of all major interest. Like my stay, nice tv room/kitcheen were you meet a lot of staff member. They are a bit too present tho. Except my lil laundry problem, things were greet. I will there again at my next visit.
