Property Description

'Garden Lane Backpackers' is a brand new, stylish and contemporary hostel in a convenient city centre location, the Dublin Liberties area, neighbor of Christ church area. Our aim at Garden Lane is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, making you feel right at home, while providing a high quality service at a budget price.

We're tucked away in a side street just off of Francis Street. It’s a great location for visiting the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Christchurch Cathedral, Saint Patrick Cathedral, Dublin Castle and the Brazen Head - Ireland's oldest pub! And we're only a ten-minute walk from popular hot spots like Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Camden area and Trinity College. There are many restaurants, shops, bars, pubs and supermarkets just around the corner. You'll never be short of things to do here!

We offer comfortable accommodation in 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms (including female only dorms) each room with its own wi-fi router. Linen is free (yes, we'll make your bed for you) and we provide high quality mattresses and individual reading lights to ensure a high level of comfort. Each bed also comes with its own power socket, and an under-bed locker to secure your luggage. All the dorms are cleaned daily and the beds are always made with fresh linen. Each floor has multiple bathrooms that are cleaned three times every day (7am – 11 am – 7pm) to ensure a high quality standard of cleanness.

On the top floor we have a spacious kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals, including plenty of fridge space and tea/coffee/hot chocolate at any time. From 7:30 to 10 in the morning we provide a free breakfast with 2 types of bread, 4 types of Jam, 2 types of peanut butter, 3 types of cereals and yes … the real brand NUTELLA! On top of this, we keep all of this (except for the milk) available throughout the rest of the day and night. The kitchen has an outside terrace with a great surrounding view of Dublin and the hills around it.
Opposite the kitchen is the living room where you are always welcome to hang out and watch a movie, have a drink, stare at your smartphone or play a game with our staff members and guests. We have two PC’s here that are free to use for any purpose. A hairdryer or iron + board are available to all our guests free of charge.

Our international staff is very knowledgeable about things to do and see in- and outside of Dublin, and we are always happy to offer you (practical) advice or to draw on our own experiences. As we are affiliated with several tour companies, we can offer you some great free or budget options to explore the city and the rest of Ireland. The taxi company we partner with offers a very competitive price for getting around the city or to the airport. Carkpark available for €10 a day (ask front desk for more information).

Feel free to contact us for further questions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Garden Lane family!

    Superb

    05 Oct 2018
    I stayed at Garden Lane for two nights with three friends. We were in a six-bed female dorm with two other women and it was great—very clean and just as pictured. The bathroom was just down the hall and also very clean. We did not arrive until well past midnight, and the staff was very accommodating of our late arrival time. They also printed (for free!) all of our boarding passes for the flight home. The breakfast was a great spread, too.

    Fabulous

    Budget accommodation in the heart of Dublin. Rooms were clean, staff was helpful, bathrooms were few on each floor. Not enough for the number of people.

    Very Good

    12 Sep 2018
    The location is around 15-20 min walk from the city center which makes it a more quite place to stay but you always find someone for a chat. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. Two minus points: due to lack of ventilation in the bathroom, fungus grow easily on the shower walls. Second, the bunk beds were sensible for motion thus they make squeaky noise with every turn.

    I do not recommend this hostel for young or solo travelers because it mostly caters to older, long term guests. It is also located pretty far from most tourist attractions. The bathrooms and showers could use some additional maintenance. The kitchen and balcony are very well-maintained though and the free breakfast is great! Our receptionist was also very kind and helpful.
