    Couldn’t of asked for more from the hostel. Was ideal for my trip with my friends. Will be going back in the future and will most definitely be recommending to family and friends.

    They were super friendly and helpful! A small breakfast was provided which was yummy! Rooms were only half capacity so we ended up with a private room. Everything was very clean. Only complaint was one mattress was very hard and I switched and could feel the springs in the bed. Went back to the very hard one. Facilities were nice. Fun atmosphere. One of the more expensive ones I've stayed in but a good quality.

    The hostel is quite far away from the city centre :/ The location was not good for me, as I was on a city trip. There are no bars, restaurants, shops or museums nearby. The other guests were mainly 40+ which made it hard for me to socialize and find other travelers who would join me in going to a pub etc.

    Receptionist was polite and explained facilities. I left my main large luggage in the secure luggage room, only worry is that there appears to be no oversight, there was no issue BUT to give people peace of mind this adjustment would get Gardiners 5 stars for security. Good breakfast facilities and clean towels, soap etc. Breakfast facilities are excellent as is cleanliness, I couldn't get more than 2 nights so it was Jacobs Inn who charge for breaky and luggage! STAY AT GARDINERS FOLKS!!

    Hostel facilities are clean and in good condition. Not a gear atmosphere and most other guests tendered to be older rather than other young backpackers. Staff were all polite and done what they can to make my stay as good as possible.

    Definitely not a backpackers hostel. There were many older long-term residents who made it very clear that you were in the way of their daily routines & spaces. The short-term travelers were all in one section of the building, but one of the locks was broken so you had to pass through a different 10 bed dorm to access your own dorm. Much of the staff was unhelpful and inconvenienced by your presence. The kitchen stove is turned off from 9pm-9am and the clothes dryer doesn’t actually work.

    We didn't feel 100% safe in this hostel, and we got the impression it was being used as a shelter too. When we mentioned this to the staff, we were offered a private room at an extortionate price, so had to decline. Overall, not the worst hostel I've stayed in, however I don't think we will be coming back.

    Strange hostel, many older men looking staying in the facility while migrating to Dublin from other countries. Not a good place for solo travelers or females. The room was very cold and there was zero atmosphere at the hostel. I do not recommend any females to stay in this hostel.
