Stayed for a few nights in the middle of November. The best thing is it's location, you are quite close to everything and you couldn't be more central than this. The mattress was pretty decent, I had good night sleep. However the free breakfast is quite basic. The rooms and amenities are ok.

While the staff was friendly, the place itself is terrible. There is one bathroom to share for an entire floor of about 30 people, and the bathroom itself is small, cramped and disgusting. The room itself seemed ok, at least until I got a bedbug infection a few days later from sleeping on the sheets and comforter they provided. This... More

We only stayed one night here in one of their private rooms. The service from the front desk was very good! They don't have a room with a double bed and the breakfast isn't very nurturing, but the rooms are clean and the management is great. Overall, we were pleased.

I had the worst room experience here, the people in my room were extremely rude and self centered. This is nothing against the hostel obviously - the hostel was good in its own but I wouldn't recommend staying in the all female 14 bed room as its full of crazy people. 😂 the breakfast was as you would expect and...

Overall, for a hostel, this place is very comfortable. The rooms were quite large and they even had nice under bed lockers to provide a little more security for your belongings. Each bed had some sort of outlet near it so it was very convenient to charge your devices and access to wifi was free. I was there for the... More

Pros; Lots of common space, a relaxed and approachable vibe, happy helpful staff, good breakfast, good location, secure, lots of people seemed to be staying there for long periods of time, abundant activity options, clean, hot showers. Con, not enough plug-ins in the room. Often hard to charge in the common area.

Hey, thanks so much for your kind review. I have to agree with you on pretty much all of those points! It's true, we could use more access to power points in some areas; with our ever increasing technology and need to charge devices it seems like there's never enough so we are looking into that. All the best and... More

Stayed here with friends last week. The Four Courts is very accessible for all of the city centre, particularly the night life of Temple Bar. The rooms were clean with en-suite shower and toilet and kettle, tea and coffee in the room. A continental breakfast is available for anyone who wants it. The only downside for us was that the...

Hi there, thanks for your review! We're happy to hear you would recommend us. Lots of people seem to enjoy the design of the building, wooden floors included, though I can understand if it wasn't to your taste. Hopefully that won't put you off coming again. If you or your friends decide to stay another time, we'll gladly provide earplugs... More

Pros - Location is good and an easy walk to the Temple Bar area. The price is cheap and includes a light breakfast of cereal and toast. Free walking tours are offered. Cons - The beds were really rickety. The area is a bit dodge next to a drug rehab place, which felt not so safe if you were going... More

I was just staying one night before heading off for an early flight. Bathroom was small for the amount of girls sharing. It was as clean, but well loved. Room was a bit awkward, and no plug for my bed, as all backpackers know the value of an overnight charge, but beds most did have lots. Staff was friendly and... More
