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 amenities and a place to sit with one eye on the telly. Breakfast is served with swagger, and when you're done, amble over to the large entertainment areas with pool, games, and more telly. Bedrooms are a little more en masse, with steel frames and lockable cages for storing bags. Some are at ground level next to streets made noisy by late night drunks and early morning traffic. Bathrooms are as expected for large dorms, floors awash with water and push-button showers with somewhat less than maximum heat.
Heading out, the hostel is very close to the brewery and no more than ten to fifteen minutes walk to O' Connell Street and the museums.
Overall, a very well run hostel for its size and if the buzz of the crowd is your thing, then you'll have a great time.
