Just above a hostel in the sense that you can have a room on your own. But the kindness of the staff and the baggage deposit service for free the day you leave have value. For the rest, it was not so clean, sheets were shorter than mattress which was a spring one with springs popping up and for 80...

This is the most filthy hole I've ever had the misfortune to set foot in. Absolutely disgustingly dirty from the moment you step inside. The left luggage room isn't at all secure, bags aren't tagged and you're just given the key to fetch them yourself. The bedroom is nothing like in the photos online, I don't think the photos they...

This place was filthy and was horrible. The room was freezing. It has two pillows that were an inch thick and of no good to anyone. The blanket didn't keep us warm. The bathroom was filthy and outdated. Would advise to give this place a miss for your own health. Would never stay again

Poor services, dirty rooms and sheets and no internet in the rooms, so you have to stay on the ground floor to be connected. The location though is very convenient. One of the worst hostels i v ever visit.

We was so disappointed with this hostel. Luckily we only stayed for the night whilst visiting dublin city, if I'd have booked it for longer we would have gone somewhere else. The staff were friendly and the location was fab which is the only positive about this hostel. It lives up to the name hostel, broken tiles in the 'en...

The rooms are not like those in the pictures and look at the over sized headboard to the beds, the matres are dirty, smelly and uncomfortable. you will not get a good night here. Breakfast is a joke and even the local pigeons would turn it down.. This hostel is a shambles and not worth even €5 a night. It...

I was heading to Dublin for a few days to visit my friend and in my haste I booked the first (and what I thought) reasonably priced hostel near the city centre that I could find but I was wrong. The only reason I'm not scoring this as terrible is because the staff were friendly. However, I have never seen...

Definitely the worst hostel ever. They put us in a smelly basement room (wich is not on photos), shower is disgusting and awful. In the middle of the night (3 AM) they were setting up matrass on the floor in 10 bed room. I wonder how are they allowed to run that hostel.
