    One of the best hostels I've ever been to and I've been to many! Stayed in a private room with my boyfriend, it was bigger than many hotel rooms I've stayed in and in very good condition like the hostel in general. Shower took ages to warm up but that was the only downside I could think of. Very friendly staff, basic hostel breakfast was available, very clean and tidy place. Easy to reach by bus or by foot, even though the hostel isn't right in the city centre. Definitely value your money!

    Good place to stay, slightly longer walk from the city centre than we would have liked. Nice rooms!

    The Central Hostel was a great place to stay, great value. The house is a nice old Georgian building with a cute outdoor area and a big kitchen. We stayed in a private room, it was very comfortable and the shower worked well. It was fairly quiet, good for couples or visitors that want a good night's rest. Thanks!

    Absolutely lovely staff, room was a very good standard and warm, great kitchen and breakfast and the social areas of the hostel were really pleasant. Check in was easy and we were allowed to do it a couple of hours early Only couple of downsides were it’s a little far away from the centre (although still very easy walking and this is reflected in the cheap price) and in our room (B) there was often a really loud sound of running water right outside the window - perhaps from an upstairs sink

    Amazing hostel! Extremely safe entry, to both main door and your room. Nice kitchen, nice little patio for smoking, laundry facilities, staff was amazing! The room I had (co-Ed 8 bed) was a big size, lockers were right under your bed which was convenient! It’s right off of a main-ish road, location of it could of been better (I was told by several locals it’s not a good area), overall my stay here though was fantastic!!! Being a single female solo traveler I loved it!

    The hostel seemed fine. The staff was great. Unfortunately the website led me to believe that there were three separate beds in the room and there were not. The hostel refunded my money but website would not refund its rather steep booking percentage. I would definitely book with the hustle directly next time and stay there.

    The Dublin Central Hostel was nice. The staff was very helpful, giving us ideas about what to see, where to eat etc. The free breakfast was also a great perk. We had some issues with our toilet in our private room which was not fixed during our stay, but that would be my only complaint. I understand that the plumbing system is very old, I just wish it would've been handled with more urgency by staff.

    Good location, close city centre, and buses. There were no lockers in the room and the dorm could be cleaner especially the toilet, it was dusty. It’s an old building, so you can easily hear the noise coming from outside. Nice basic breakfast.
