    Great hostel! About a 10 minute walk or less from Dublin Castle with a balcony. Would have been amazing if they kept the balcony open till later. The room was clean and the beds had curtains and power sockets. Bathrooms could use more hooks but the showers were good and warm!

    I liked the common area on the top floor - nice facilities and view. There are very few bathrooms in the hostel, but oddly enough, it didn't seem to be a problem. But the bathroom on our floor was extremely tiny and cramped Not me, but my roommate had trouble with her power socket (it would seem that the circuit breaker was acting up) so she was unable to work on her laptop in her room which made her quite furious. The location is a bit out of the way, but nothing too bad.

    i booked a few night here in July and arrived late at night by Taxi. As there were no staff around I relied on the email instructions to gain entry and it was really easy . I knew the area can be a bit dodgy so i chose all my journeys to and from the hostel by taxi. The taxi hailing device by reception is really useful. Everybody was easygoing, helpful and friendly. The rooms are simple and hygienic, with privacy blinds.

    Great hostel but would avoid self check in. Had to wait 45 min to get someone to help me access my key, and no one is there until late morning for towels or help in AM. Good atmosphere tho and seem to be very organized just need to workout a few kinks

    Great place, staff is very nice and personable. Inside is pretty typical I’d say for a hostel. Very accommodating. Great resources in place for check out- key drop box and button to call a taxi. Cleaning is nicely kept up. Located in what I think was a nice neighbour, fairly close by to most things- typical walk time was 20 mins to most attractions. Lots of pamphlets for activities.

    I had a great time staying at Garden lane backpackers. Staff and communication was exceptional. The location is great with regards to the city center but the area directly around the hostel made me as a solo traveler sometimes wish I had someone to walk me home 😉 If there was any possibility some type of long life milk could also be made available with the cereal provided, Garden Lane backpackers can for sure state that breakfast is included!

    The receptionist was very welcoming and nice. The rooms were small but clean with cozy beds. The hostel is near the city center, however, the area is one of the shadiest in Dublin as there are junkies everywhere, so it is quite dangerous. There are only two bathrooms for the whole floor and they are quite dirty. Breakfast is almost non existent (allthough included in the price) it looks like you get leftovers and the kitchen and dishes are dirty. Thats why I have to give it a 2.
