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.

    Cosy room, lovely bathroom. Bang in the centre of Dublin. Really good if you’re there for a few nights and just coming back to sleep and chill. The little yard out the back is nice and kitchen is big and clean.

    It was a great place to stay in Dublin, I'd highly recommend it. The staff members were awesome, especially the manager. Always tried to help wherever they were able to.

    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.

    Not the best hostel, not the worst either. It was really quiet and the staff seemed a bit uninterested in pretty much everything (some didn’t really seem to know what they were doing). The location was great, though and the place was pretty clean!

    Nice staff, who were helpful in giving suggestions on where to go. Room was clean and exactly as described on the website. Only thing that would have made it better would have been a shelf or some hooks in the room. Would recommend and use again

    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.

    Horrible experience! My sister and I landed at 11 pm, and since I knew that the last check-in is at 11:30 pm, I wrote them an email, asking to wait for half an hour; they assured me that the receptionist would wait until 12, but nobody was there when we arrived at 11:45! We had to look for another room in the neighbourhood, not a pleasant experience late at night. The next day, they didn't want to refund us anything, so we left without checking-in. That's unprofessional behaviour at its peak!
