    “Pleasant surprise! Was nervous about staying in a hostel, but we had a 6 bed unit and it suited our family of 6 with it’s private bath. Staff were very helpful, we left our bags there upon check out while we toured the city until our departure. The location was perfect! Value for money was excellent!!”


    “For my first stay at a hostel this was an excellent choice. The staff were very professional and friendly. The facilities were clean and had all the necessities of home and there are lockers available to store valuables, so security is not a problem. The hostel is central, close to bus stops for the airport, tourist attractions and the tram that operates through central Dublin, making it very easy to criss-cross the city.”
