    I will definitely be staying here for my next trip back. I wish I had just booked my accommodation here for my entire stay. I was hesitant because we (three people) had to stay in six person dorm. My previous experiences with dorms in hostels have been uncomfortable to say the least. But this was great. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and secure, the amenities in our room were clean. The shower in the room is pretty small. But the fact there was even a shower in the room is great.

    Only stayed here one night—rooms are decently clean, bathrooms not so much. There was mold on the shower walls. The room was a bit cramped because of the way the room was set up. Staff was super friendly and nice. Location is right in the center which was great.

    The place was in a great location but was kind of odd. Attached to a pub and you didn't have your own way in after the bar closed, you needs to ring a doorbell and wait for someone to let you in. The bathroom didn't have a sink inside and was quite filthy (mould on the walls and shower curtain). The sink was located outside the washroom and there wasn't a light so for guys, it was difficult to shave and for girls impossible to do makeup. Also there was no kitchen or refrigerator.

    Location was good and the staff were nice and helpful, but the bathroom wasn’t very clean and my pillow was more like a bag of mothballs in a pillowcase. Also didn’t have a kitchen or anywhere to eat outside food you bring in.

Things to Note

Check-in: 2pm. Check-out: 11am.

We have lockers available before and after check-out for a small fee.

Passports/Identity cards are required at check-in with a €10 cash deposit required for room key.

We do our best to accommodate you with your friends, however beds are allocated as bookings are received so if you're one of the last to book you may have to change dorm during your stay and we cannot guarantee that you'll be roomed together.

Guests must be sober when checking in. Only hostel guests are allowed in hostel, but friends are welcome to wait in bar.

Any late arrivals (after 11pm) shall be charged for the first night and checked in by our night staff. In the morning the remaining balance can be paid and a full check-in given.

If your booking is for 4 or more beds, we will pre-authorise your credit card for the first nights stay. We cannot accept debit cards for pre-authorisations, however if you only have a debit card, we can charge for the sum of your first night to secure the booking instead (please note that this is non-refundable). Cards which fail to pre-authorise may result in your booking being cancelled.

We have a 48 hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations/alterations must be made 48 hours before 2pm on the arrival date. Late cancellations and no-shows shall be charged the equivalent of the first night's stay.

Group Bookings
Groups of 5 or more males must email Nelly’s for special conditions before booking. Certain group types must also sign a damage liability form, agree to hostel rules and leave a security deposit of €30 each. Security deposits will be returned providing no damage is made to the property and that house rules are not broken. This group type must book the entire dorm they are in, so as not to share with other hostel guests. Failure to do so may lead to cancellations.

All group bookings of 10 or more beds will be charged the remaining balance 3 weeks before arrival. For groups of 20 or more beds, the remaining balance is due 6 weeks before arrival. After this any cancellations/alterations aren’t possible.
