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.


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.

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.

    We had a lovely time in Dublin and the hostel was perfect for what we needed it for: we had our own room with a shower and a toilet. The location of the hostel is quite good it`s not that central, but you can get there by 20 minutes on foot. The staff was very nice, funny and helpful! We enjoyed the simple breakfast in the morning.

    Overall it’s a great Hostel! It certainly is pricy but in Dublin terms actually it actually is ok. The beds were fine with lockers below the bed (private lock required!!). The bathroom was not so clean, yet again, thinking in Hostel terms, it was fine! Really impressive was the kitchen which was very tidy and in very good shape! Finishing up, the staff was very friendly and helpful!

    Nice place. It was a little further from city center than I would have liked, about a 15 minute walk, but not too bad. We stayed in a private room with en-suite bathroom. Everything seemed clean but not too comfortable. The shower didn’t get very hot. Quick and easy check in and check out. Breakfast was toast and cold cereal, we usually left before the kitchen opened for the day so we didn’t get to take full advantage of it.

    Great stay for what you’re paying for. A short 15 minute walk to the spire and about 25 min walk to temple bar. Very easy to get around on public transport. Breakfast was very minimal (toast jam and coffee/ tea).

    It was the cheapest hostel atm so I guess we got what we paid for. But the bathrooms were disgusting, the tiny living room area had sofas older than Jesus and it felt pretty disgusting to even sit in them. Staff was OK, they helped us with everything we needed and it was good help. They just didn't seem very service-minded, no smile or anything. I mean, this was fine because it was central and the beds were clean. But you definitely don't wanna hang out here.

    The internet went out one day after arrival and was out of service for the rest of our trip (4 days). That was just beyond frustrating. Otherwise it was okay
