First of all de place was a disgrace, waitin half an hour to check in, then went to out room it was dirty and small cramped beds the room was way too hot! the receptionist was the most ignorant person and acted very cheeky but thats not the start of it. 5 of us left to get food and me and my friend went to the hostel first and there was a girl at the end of the stairs looking very out of it and scary and jumped out at me and my fiend. we were actually so scared we ran up to our room on the top floor. next the 3 others wit us came in literally 1 minute later and she did the same thing but this time follwed them up to our room where me and my friend were waiting. we got in and the girl tried to open our room! when she couldnt open it she decided to try kick it down and managed to break the lock on the door which left us trapped in a boiling hot room for the whole night because the reception wouldnt not answer. the girl actually put her fingers on the side of the door trying to stop it from opening but thankfully we got it closed and locked and she wouldnt go away so myfriend had to go down and get the man at the reception and had to be woken up to our door being broken in the next morning to let us out. not even an apology for what had happened! disgrace of a place actually thinking of reporting it to the gardai NEVER STAY HERE! and the girl did not even stay here just shows that anybody could have walked into the hostel and into our room!
Unique Quality: Nothing!!!
Directions: Too far from city centre
Spent 2 nights here. Good security, a little away from the centre but only a 15min or walk or so to Trinity College or Dublin Castle, 5 minutes from Stephen's Green. Good security, large kitchen, luggage storage and helpful staff.
You have to leave a 5 euro key deposit which you get back and they accept credit cards ( alot of hostels don't).
Dorm like bathrooms - 3 toilets/3 showers/3sinks per 3 or 4 rooms. It's a push button for the shower which sometimes doesn't work for a few minutes and you have to keep pressing the button every minute or so but it's not that bad. Pretty clean as well and there's lockers in the rooms with a padlock.
Rates depend the night and the number of beds per dorm. You can book via www.hostelworld.com 16-18 euros for 4 bed dorm.
Unique Quality: Open 24/7 - probably best hostel I stayed at during my visit to Ireland and Scotland and best value for my money.
Directions: Bus 16a will take you there from the city centre. This bus also goes to the airport so you cna catch 16a from the airport and asked to drop off at the 'Bleeding Horse'. Take a left on Camden and then right onto Charlemont.
