Nice for large groups

Negative Reviews

A bit of a dive

This is probably not the cleanest establishment in Dublin There were quite a few comments about filthy bathrooms, floors caked with dirt and scummy showers It’s not recommended that you go barefoot here Take your flip flops.

Shared bathrooms a hassle

When one of the community bathrooms is out of order, and this seems to happen with some regularity, it can make for some long waits in the morning The doors don’t always work right.

Rooms on the grimy side and kitchen inadequate

These are not luxury rooms and some felt they were a bit dark and grimy with too much noise While it’s nice to have a self-serve kitchen, it seemed to be a but short on supplies, and like other parts of the hostel, there were a number of complaints about dirt.
