Irish Murphy's Hostel Reviews

Good for a few days

Nice location, clean and tidy environment, hospitable people. Only that it's hard for this place to get rid of the city's noise; also, bar customers can still be heard if the opening hour lasts till midnight.

Age 25 | Taiwan

Very adequate.

You get a secure room to stay in, and a comfortable bed to sleep on. The bathroom and toilet areas could perhaps be a bit better maintained or monitored -- during my stay I stopped showers, and the occasional tap from dripping/running whenever I went to shower. I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Good, basic, clean.

All the essentials you would need. Good value for money and good location.


Good place to stay a few nights

recently refurbished, clean, friendly place to stay & dine for the price you pay. however the single bed in my private room wasnt as comfortable as I would have liked but I was still able to get a good nights sleep.


First impressions is it looks good

very dirty and noisy.
