Overview

We want you to feel at home at The Dublin Central Hostel, so we've loaded the place up with super friendly staff, fresh linen and towels and loads of freebies to do just that! Fill up on toast and cereals from our free breakfast buffet and take your tea outside to our garden space. Once you've had your caffeine fix, come along on our free walking tour. As well as seeing the sights of the city, you can join in on different events like pub crawls around local craft breweries and whisky distilleries.

Location

To reach us from Dublin Airport, jump on bus 16 or 41 for 30 minutes to Phibsborough, Upper Dorset St where we're just a 2-minute walk away. From Connolly train station, take bus 1, 11, 13, 16 or 44 for 5 minutes, then walk about 20 minutes to our front door. The famous Temple Bar is a 20-minute stroll from us too, as is the Jameson distillery if you fancy a tour and tasting. To see what life was like for old Irish prisoners, Kilmainham Gaol is half an hour away – catch bus 40 to Emmett Road.

Rooms and Dorms

Our private rooms and shared dorms (female-only and mixed) are nice and bright with large, breezy windows. Each room has an en-suite bathroom too, with hot showers and hair dryers for hire if big hair is a must. Keep your backpacks and luggage safe in under-bed storage – just remember to bring a padlock to keep your locker secure.

Extras and activities

After a night in Temple Bar, opt for a chilled morning in our communal lounge. You can laze on the sofas to watch a film or make use of the free Wi-Fi. There's a foosball table here too – we say the loser has to make a round of free tea and coffee for everybody in the kitchen! We've also got laundry facilities on-site so you can freshen up your essentials if last night got a little wild.

    Great short stay and served the purpose for everything we needed. Private room was good and staff were very helpful. After leaving some belongings at the hostel by mistake a staff member called Ian at reception helped sending them back to me so very impressed with the customer service.

    Fabulous

    08 Nov 2019
    Upon first impression, we felt a bit let down that this hostel was not in the CENTER of everything. It was about a 15 minute walk from all of the central bars and pubs that we were interested in but our stay was AMAZING so we got over this rather quick. The private room felt very homey. It felt more like an air bnb than a hostel. The staff was incredibly helpful when we had problems arise and worked with us to make sure we had a successful stay.

    Very basic hostel, nothing fancy but clean and safe. Staff was very helpful! Breakfast included bread, jams, cereal, milk, juice as well as coffee and tea. Overall it was in a great location and provided somewhere to stay. The main common areas were very nice but the rooms were very basic with no decor. It was pretty much just a bed in a room for the private double room.

    Quiet hostel with nice location but our dorm looked like it wasn't cleaned in weeks and the bathroom wasn't clean either. The kitchen was really clean though.

    The hostel is a good central location and is good if you’re looking for a no frills place to rest while in Dublin. However there are no lockers for locking away valuables- you have to use an area by reception which you rely on the staff to open and close, between 7am- 11pm. As such you can’t access your things outside of these hours! However there wasn’t always someone at the desk during these hours and they didn’t respond to the bell being rang. Not sure I’d stay again.

    We stayed for two nights in October in a double private room on the ground floor. The only real upside was the location and the helpful staff. The bed was okay, the shower sink was full of hair when we arrived. Breakfast was rudimentary with only toast, butter, jam and bland cereal. Our room window was next to the smoking area and could not be shut securely. The thin windows also did not protect us from a generator (?) that was constantly making a loud noise. We expected more for the high price.

    The location was decent, near many bus stops to get us to various areas of town but that's where the positive notes about this hostel end. The hostel advertises laundry on the website, Google and their own website, yet they do not have laundry facilities. Noise carries very easily through the hostel, meaning at 1am when a group of drunk girls party in their room, you'll hear it. After 10pm theres no staff to enforce 'quiet hours' and no phone number other than 'emergencies only.'
