Dublin is a well-known and well-establish tourist destination. It's known for its lively pubs and night-life and wide array of museums and tourist attractions. The city also serves the main entry point to Ireland and has connections to the widest array of regions in rest of the country of any Irish city.
Hostels in Dublin are plentiful, though during peak travel times it can be hard to find beds (Easter, St. Patrick's, and some of the summer). Check out the quality and size of the dorm of your Dublin hostel. There are places that clearly market themselves as party-hostels; these will be fun if you want to really hit the town. If your content with meeting some locals on your own, and a more low-key night out at the pub, check that the dorm isn't huge as many in the city are, since with so many people here to go out, its likely that someone will be a drunken mess and wake you up stumbling in.
Location-wise, its notable that central Dublin is walkable; Dublin is big but mostly suburbs. Most hostels are located in the center and most areas are equally decent. Public transportation is not as thorough as in many European cities of the same size, but the bus network is very good, especially to the airport. Dublin Bus routes 16A and 41 are a bit slower than other routes, but the cheapest options into town at €2 a ride. The city has 24 postal codes, with the lowest ones being at the center. This can help you figure out if a place is central or not.

"Ashfield House City Centre is a reasonably big hostel right in the heart of Dublin, with all the necessities for a comfortable stay, including a great buffet breakfast each morning. The Location Ashfield House is located in the heart of the city and is a prime location for exploring Dublin, with Trinity College, O'Connell Street, and Temple Bar footsteps away. It is easy to find, as it's on one of the main streets, just metres from the...
Kinlay House Dublin
"Kinlay House Hostel is a chain of three big youth hostels in Cork, Galway, and Dublin. The Dublin hostel is conveniently situated in a nice, red-brick 1870s Georgian building close to Christchurch. It's a five-minute walk from O'Connell Street and Suffolk Street and just two minutes from the Temple Bar area, making it an excellent headquarters for pub-goers. Crossing O'Connell Bridge in direction of Grafton Street, turn right into Dame...
"Location Mount Eccles Court Hostel is situated in a nice Georgian street north of the Liffey. Do not confuse North Great Georges Street with South Great Georges Street -- the two are on opposite sides of the Liffey and do not even come close to aligning! From the O'Connell Monument (pictured), follow Lower O'Connell Street north to the Parnell Monument at Parnell Street. Turn right and head east for two blocks, then turn left on North...
Isaac's Hostel Dublin
"Isaac's Hostel is conveniently located next to the bus station and Connelly train station (trains bound north of Dublin). It is a twenty-minute tram ride away from Heuston train station (trains bound west and south of Dublin). O'Connell Street is about five blocks away, seven or eight blocks to Temple Bar. While fairly walkable for the active, if you're not feeling inactive, the tram that stops half a block away every ten to fifteen minutes...
Oliver St. John Gogarty
"Oliver St. John Gogarty Hostel is located in the Temple Bar area of Dublin, upstairs from Oliver St. John Gogarty Pub. For those unfamiliar, Temple Bar is a very active restaurant and pub area of Dublin and you can't get any closer to the Temple Bar action than Gogarty's. It is not uncommon to find bachelor and bachelorette parties, and many young folks at Gogarty's, but families also seem to be welcome. Since most of the social action...
"Located in an area close to the main bus stop and full of cheap accommodation options, Abraham House doesn't stand out until you check in. The hostel is very easy to find and only a ten-minute, leisurely walk to O'Connell Street. With rooms ranging from a private double room to sixteen-bed dormitories, you have a lot to choose from. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom, which is very clean despite the sometimes-funky smell -- the lack of any...
Jacob's Inn Dublin
"Great place to stay in Dublin! - Jacob's Inn was a great place to stay for a night in Dublin. The rooms were clean with sheets included, and the front desk was very helpful with any questions we had. Big lockers were cheap to rent (2 euros per day) and we could keep our bags there before check in and after check out. Breakfast wasn't anything special, just toast, cereal, musli, and coffee/tea. The downstairs common area has comfy couches and...
"Avalon House is a large, four-floor dormitory style hostel that is centrally located in the heart of Dublin’s old city, and is within walking distance of many of the city’s primary attractions, including Trinity College, Dublin Castle, and the Guinness Storehouse. Connected to The Bald Barista, a popular coffee shop, Avalon House has a lively, energetic atmosphere, and caters to groups and the solitary traveler alike. The Location The...
Four Courts Hostel
"A very large and efficient hostel right in the middle of the action, Four Courts is value for money and delivers pretty much everything you might hope for. The colourful reception boasts staff that are friendly, attentive, and efficient, with good attention to security. There is space for bags to be stored and for laundry to be done. Limited pay parking is available along the street. The kitchen area is very clean, with plenty of...
Paddy's Palace Dublin
Lower Gardiner Street
"Paddy's Palace certainly sounds like the perfect Irish hostel -- 100% Irish owned, cute yet classy name, and a trumped up transportation service that can take some stress out of travel. But don't be fooled. The Location This hostel claims that by taking their airport shuttle you save money. This is ridiculous. Perhaps there are buses that cost that much, but directly outside of the Dublin airport is a bus station where you can take a...
"Abbey Court is in an unbeatable location on the River Liffey and almost on the corner with O'Connell Street, the main road in Dublin. Temple Bar with its bars, restaurants and nightlife is a short walk across the river. Its also about 5 minutes walk from the airport bus stop on O'Connell Street. There are a variety of expensive express buses to the airport (€5 on the 747 and 748 buses, €6 for the aircoach) but you can also use the slower 16A...
Dublin International YHA
"HI - Dublin International Hostel (An Oige) is a fair walking distance from City Center, with several regular bus stops nearby. The hostel is large with free, secured, on-site parking. With good nightly rates, a friendly staff, and complimentary Continental Breakfast the hostel is comfortable for the budget minded. It is however meager in the amenities department. That said, it is a nice jumping off point to exploring Dublin and surrounding...
Harrington House Hostel
"We stayed here for two nights, we felt welcome by the staff who were very polite towards us. We had paid to stay in the twin room, which was clean, neat, and tidy. The location of the hostel was good too, it wasnt noisy even though there were good places to go out drinking not far. This was also a bonus that we didnt have to spend lots on taxi fares. We would stay again." … "Two years ago this place ripped us off and it felt like they...
"Sky Backpackers - The Liffey (also known as “The Litton Lane”) is a friendly and vibrant hostel with a great attitude, located right in the heart of Dublin town. The Location You can’t get much closer to downtown and all the great sights and action of the Temple Bar area than the Sky. It's right around the corner from the iconic O’Connor statue on O’Connor Street and just a few hundred yards from the River Liffey; this is a very central...
Backpackers D1 Hostel Dublin
Lower Gardiner Street
"Staying at City Manor Hostel is certainly an experience. However, it not necessarily one I would want to repeat. The Location This hostel, like most in Dublin, is located in a safe and easily located area on Lower Gardiner Street, close to Dublin city centre, the DART rail station, Bus Aerus terminal and only a short walk to the Temple Bar area. This hostel is situated on Lower Gardiner Street, close to Dublin city centre, the DART...
"Bad location. Dull atmosphere. - In a bad location, we didn't feel safe walking there at night. A long walk from the city centre. Had an awkward atmosphere and staff weren't friendly. It was Clean enough. Breakfast was cornflakes and toast. Boring place to be. I wouldn't stay again." … "Beyond words - We have never ever experienced such an unbelievably dirty, filthy hostel or place in our lives! We were absolutely disgusted and...
"Formerly a hotel, Abigails Hostel still feels more like a comfortable budget hotel than a hostel. It is not oozing with character, but it has all the essentials (and then some), and that slightly institutional, chain-hotel feel can actually make a nice change for those who have temporarily had their fill of the more "authentic" backpacker hostels. The prices are some of the best in Ireland, and there are a lot of little comforts that help...
The Times Hostel - Camden Place
"Clean and simple, staff are lovely - I did not have any real identity with me -- as I am Irish I didn't have my passport with me, and as I was traveling by bus I did not have my drivers license with me either and this slowed things down at reception. I did not see this as a prerequisite on the website. But common sense prevailed with whatever bits of identity I did have. So my advice is bring a form of official identity. The staff were very...

Our Hostel facilities include a free Wi-Fi area, a self-catering kitchen, free bed linen, a TV room, a 24 Hour reception, security lockers, snack machines, free board games, an outdoor patio area, parking...
"This is a homeless person's hostel. It is filled with drug addicts and alcoholics and staying there puts your safety at some considerable risk. Even the "left luggage" gets robbed and that is behind the reception desk. The staff are really nice and hard working people and I feel for them that they have to work in such a place. Staying in it is a better alternative to sleeping rough on the streets, but only just. You have to leave by 10 in the...

Generator Hostel Dublin
"Generator Hostel Dublin opened in the spring of 2011 on Smithfield Square, a former horse and cattle market. It will be hard for any hostel around the world to live up to the standard set by this one. The Location It’s a short walk (ten minutes) or three tram stops on the Luas (Dublin’s lightrail) away from O’Connell Street, Dublin’s main shopping area.

The Brewery Hostel
"Had a paranormal experience at the brewery hostel - i had some very odd occurrences happen to me one night while staying at the hostel. Im sure being hungover and sick had something to do with it but strange and believable all the same. anyways, i found myself floating above the bed at one point, voices of girls giggling and such. After a couple of our fathers i was released. Upon finding myself able to rest again the same night i awoke to...
Goin' My Way
"Keep away! - This hostel is just from third world! The only good thing is the kindness of the staff. Rooms smell nasty and you have to climb narrow stairs to get your room. The kitchen is not very clean and forget having a shower at night -- water is only available in the morning. Of course, take with you a lot of cash because they do not accept credit card. In a nutshell, spend a few euros more and go to other hostel." … "Bad hostel -...

Litton Lane Hostel
"The Litton Lane hostel is located on the banks of the River Liffey about halfway between the Ha'Penny Bridge and the O'Connell Street Bridge. It has an excellent location for walking to all parts of the city center. Don't be fooled by its alley entryway, once you get inside it's bright and cheery. The walls have been painted with Andy Warhol-like paintings of Bono, The Edge, Sinead O'Connor, and other artists that apparently used to have...
Bunk House Hostel
"Dublin City Bunkhouse is brand new -- it opened in December 2007 and all the facilities are in new condition. The location is excellent and it is a very good value for the money. The first day we were there, we met people from thirteen different countries. If you are looking for a place to meet fellow travelers, you have found the place. The atmosphere as efficient and friendly rather than homey. There is a somewhat industrial feel to the...
My Place Dublin Hotel
"Very clean hostel, small kitchen facilities that do become crowded at mealtimes, a fantastic curved roof in the lower floors that reminds you of an aircraft hanger where the kitchen, recreation and TV rooms are. Pool table, plenty of tables and chairs in the common areas. Prices vary upon the size of the room. The lowest priced room had 20 beds and 2 toilets in the room – sheets are included free of charge but you need to pay a fee if you...

Dublin Travel Tips & Suggestions
It's a great city, but better not to visit at Christmastime because everything's closed -- even pubs! And Dublin without pubs is not the same. It's a funny city and the Irish are the kindest people I've ever met. Don't miss visit Temple Bar, and if you have time then take a bus to Howth Village and see its cliffs and its lighthouse. It's absolutely fantastic!
I loved Ireland, but especially Dublin!
What a lovely stay it was! Though I was born in Paris and live in the Alps, I found Dublin city as one of the most rocking ever. People simply go there on drinking, talking and get laid purposes...
— A french barman
I have not only visited Dublin but I've lived there for a year. And all I can say is: It's a great city! Yes, it is a bit more expensive than other European metropolitan areas, but at the same time you won't find nicer people, more fun and better accommodation anywhere else in the world. The Irish are nice folks; friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. The crime rate isn't higher as in Berlin or in London; just use your common sense and you'll be fine. And the art collections belong to the best preserved exhibitions on the planet. They may not be large, but they are incredibly valuable for any connoisseur. Plan ahead, make sure to have list of places to go, things to do and landmarks to visit and it will be a fantastic trip!
