Only given 2 stars instead of 1 star due to the location. They flat out refused to sort out the broken shower in room 44, which had been broken for at least 10 days (as read in a review going back 10 days). Which wasn't exactly ideal for a group of 10 staying for 2 nights! Rude unwelcoming staff. Keep...

My friends and I stay here whenever we visit Dublin, which has been thrice until now. Compared to other places it's quite cheap and the breakfast is included. The rooms do lack some comfort and I wouldn't recommend staying here for three weeks, but it's more than fine for a short trip. The staff is mostly friendly and helpful and...

Staff at the reseption was super friendly when we arrived. We had our own shower and bathroom in our room which was nice. Breakfast was included. Clean and nice room, nothing special but we can recommend this hostel to others.

This place is at the very heart of Temple Bar! The rooms are basic, bit grubby - do NOT look inside the duvet covers!!! However the staff are lovely and there's a free breakfast thrown in which was a bonus! The bar downstairs is always rammed, the atmosphere is electric and I would recommend based on the price and location,...

Get what you pay for. Stayed in a 4 person dorm and it was perfectly pleasent and clean. It was a little cold but that is to be expected in February and had good storage spaces. Staff were OK. Some were a little rude and it came across as though we were bothering them with questions about where to drink...

Good for live music if you're in Temple Bar. It is a busy place so the chances of you getting a seat on the weekends are pretty slim. it's pretty expensive for drink and they have not got much drink selection but it's a good laugh.

Booked these for a weekend to Dublin to catch up with friends - saw the pictures on booking.com and looked absolutely fine for 2 night stay. I have never posted a bad review - but these are so far removed from the photos advertised on line -...
