Four Courts Hostel

Voted 2nd best hostel in the world in 2003 by hostelworld.com. This place is still quite good but I wouldn't still class it as 2nd best in the world. Massive common room areas on ground floor and basement. They have a pool table and movie room. Quite a few people here were long term traveller residents. I stayed here for a couple of nights with a friend and we both enjoyed the hostel and Dublin. I would definately stay here on a return visit.

I was in Dublin twice - in the winter and in the summer - each time staying in this hostel, which I appreciated for its friendly service, centrality, security concerns, big, spacious room and cheapness.

Prices: 16.50 Euro in high season for the dormitory. Free internet. Breakfast included (which is rather unusual in hostels in Ireland). The breakfast includes cornflakes, toast, coffee and tea. Nothing special, but enough for a good start into the day. :-)

Unique Quality: The Georgian building has many nice, spacious rooms with wooden floor and big windows - quite luxury for a hostel! Nevertheless, it's very modern, with experienced staff and a focus on security - makes you feel like being in good, friendly hands.

Directions: situated at the river Liffey, close to Temple Bar area, just opposite the Four Courts (which is on the other side of the river)

If you're looking for inexpensive accommodations, the Four Courts Hostel is an excellent choice. For about 20 Irish Pounds/person a night you can have a semi-private room (4 or 6 beds) and a private bath, but they have numerous other room options based on your budget (15-24 Euro/night). This is actually the only hostel I've ever stayed in, and we just ended up here because every hotel we tried was booked for the night, and someone who knew someone at a "new place" called the Four Courts Hostel and reserved us a room!

The Four Courts Hostel is comprised of three large buildings offering somewhere around 1,000 beds, for travelers of all ages (yes there are no min or max ages here!). Nor is there a requirement for an international hostel membership as at many other hostels. They have no curfew, a 24-hour front desk, a secure location, bike parking, luggage storage, and much, much more, all making the Four Courts one of the world's top hostels for the last few years. This also means you might have a hard time getting a room!

This Hostel is located along the river in downtown Dublin, across the River Liffey from the Four Courts, and easy walking distance to Temple Bar.
