    Probably my favorite hostel to stay in when in Dublin. Quiet, clean, the best showers in Ireland. Good lockers, comfy beds. It's a little off the beaten path both for cars and partiers, so getting a good night's sleep is easy. The common room is underused and a little small, so it's harder to meet the other guests and make new friends, but that's a small price to pay for the best showers in Ireland. Yes, I'm that serious about the showers. You have no idea.

    I had a great stay in Dublin at Garden Backpackers. The staff were very helpful on where and what to do in the city. I had a travel delay arriving and they were very good about checking me in after midnight and making sure I was all settled and safe!! This was very comforting being so tired from travel and in a new city. The cleaning crew were constantly busy keeping all the space tidy and welcoming. I would definitely return.

    This is an excellent hostel that books up quickly, so make sure that you make reservations well in advance because you can't just show up and expect them to have a bed for you. The location in the Liberties is a bit out of the way (check Google maps), but the upside of that is that the neighborhood is quiet unless the kids in the neighborhood decide to start shooting off fireworks, as they did when I was there in mid-October.

    Great place, very clean, the breakfast was great but they only have instant coffee, the building itself is very nice and has a nice view, the location is close enough to the centre that you can walk and far enough so you don't get the noise, the staff is super nice.

    Hotel is newly built. Bathroom was spotless. Staff very friendly and welcoming! Stayed in twin room.with lockers. The only downside is its a little out of the way from the centre of everything, 15 min walk. Bus stop 5 minutes walk away in a not so safe area at night, but plenty of taxis. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

    Best showers in any hostel I've ever been in. Hot water, good pressure, and all within the guest's control. Just wish there were a little shelf for my toiletries, but that seems to be a universal lack even in homes in Ireland. Very clean hostel, very quiet. Safe neighborhood. Beds are comfy and rooms relatively spacious, but the cage lockers under the bunks are a bit worse for wear (not all locks will work anymore) and wheels or furniture felts would help reduce noise.

    Everything fine (almost). The only "strange" thing was that when somebody rang the bell at the outer door(?) an electronic sound came up on devices on *all the floors*, audible in the (sleeping) rooms, even at 1 o'clock in the night.

    Overall we had a lovely stay. It’s a little smaller than the pictures appear but I don’t mind that at all. My only complaint is the toilet in the men’s room was broken and ran constantly, this would not have bothered me at all except it was right next to our room and I could hear it all night. The location is a little hard to find but once I learned my way around, it’s easily located near transit and has plenty in walking distance. It was a nice quiet stay, everyone was helpful and respectful.

    I was expecting way more with the high ratings. The front desk was not helpful, didnt seem interested in helping provide recs and werent friendly. They also didn't clean the bathroom when they were informed the toilet paper was out. They made excuses that a new cleaning person just started and that that person doesn't know how to clean. It's not a social environment, if that's what you're looking for. It says there are lockers but instead it's these cages that you can reach into even when locked
