Property Description

Stay at Canbe Garden Lane Hostel for an amazing experience! Our hostel is comfy, clean and right in the middle of everything fun. Guests love how tidy and cosy our place is. We're in Dublin 8, near the famous Guinness Brewery and other cool places like Temple Bar and Grafton Street. You can walk there in just 12 minutes!

We have a great kitchen that connects to a rooftop terrace where you can see Dublin's skyline. It's perfect for cooking, hanging out with other guests, listening to music and watching the sunset. And if it's raining, don't worry! We have a Cinema Room you can use anytime.

Our team knows all the best spots in town and they're excited to share them with you. They can suggest places to go that are away from the usual tourist spots.

The location is not ideal, honestly, as a solo female traveler. I wouldn’t have felt safe walking around at night alone back to the hostel. I also didn’t think the staff was particularly friendly! The common area is large. There are some long term residents it seems and that definitely changes the vibe imo. Rooms were clean! Would have appreciated a full length mirror.

The shower could be improved but the beds were very comfortable and the location was fantastic!

The hostel it self is fine, not super social but fine for a few nights. Only three bathrooms/showers for the whole floor, so at night I had to wait a long time before one of them was available. The location is not super central, but very walkable to the center. Only thing is that my Irish friend later informed me that the area it’s in is know to not be the safest, but I had no problems with that as I did not stay out late. Good for a few night but not the best I’ve stayed in.
