Property Description

'Garden Lane Backpackers' is a brand new, stylish and contemporary hostel in a convenient city centre location, the Dublin Liberties area, neighbour 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!

    Excellent hostel in Dublin. It seems to be brand new, very clean and very helpful staff. Breakfast food is available all day so there isn't any stress of not getting up in time after a night out in Dublin! It is a bit of a walk out of the main part of town (not far from Christchurch cathedral) which is good in that it is quiet but you do have to walk a bit to get into the centre of town. Highly recommend this hostel!

    We found this hostel at the beginning of our trip, and liked it so much we stayed again at the end of the trip. It is tucked away in a little side street away from other things, which is a pro and a con. Lots of turns to get there, but away from the Temple Bar crowd. The loudest thing on the street was the seagulls. Breakfast was a good spread, but peanut butter the only protein. Other guests were courteous, and friendly at breakfast. Staff was very helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were clean.

    Bunks are extremely creaky, if there’s a restless sleeper in the room everyone will know about it not get much sleep. Aside from that nice place to stay

    Really enjoyed this hostel! Stayed in the all-girl dorm with 6 beds for 3 days, beds were squeaky. The facilities are nice/clean. Even though there was only 1 working restroom on the floor, never had to wait in line. Plenty of restrooms and showers on the other floors. They provide storage cases under the beds, and you can rent the padlock for a couple of Euros. One downside is this hostel is located an extra 10 min walking from main attractions. A little hard to find w/o Google Maps.

    The room we stayed in was like sauna, too warm no ventilation which made the room smelly, only one noisy fan on the side of the room. The location is great and the staff was nice.
