Amélioration conseillée: installation d'une cabine de douche dans la chambre. Lits grinçants. Petit déjeuner complet, inclut dans le prix de la chambre. A maintenir si aucun changement d'installation dans les chambres. A mi chemin entre l'espace hygiène des campings, et l'espace nuit des auberges jeunesses. Ce n'est pas ce qu'on recherche en auberge de jeunesse, surtout en ville.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We do have private rooms with en-suite facilities in which you can book subject to availability. We do our utmost to keep the hostel clean and tidy for all guests, but there is a bit of responsibility from those who also use the facilities. We hope that should you return to Dublin that perhaps we may be able to redeem ourselves in your eyes Take care, Safe and Happy adventures Misty Dublin International Hostel

The location looks like a slum. The facilities are incredibly old and falling apart. The shower was pulsating between burning hot water and cold water. Scheduled events were cancelled without prior notice. The breakfast is ok, given that it is free but definetely nothing to compare with many other hostels. Don't come with high expectations, this hostel can only be rated as merely acceptable.

Thank you for taking the time to comment, we are sorry to hear that your stay wasn't all that it could have been. The maintenance team have been notified about the issues in relation to the hot water and cold water in the showers. With regards to events, the daily walking tour collection and the free beer tasting held on Wednesday were run. We hope to improve on our failings. Kindest regards Misty Dublin International Youth Hostel

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. It's just a quick walk away from Parnell Square and O'Connell Street. The breakfast room is really lovely, and reminded me a bit of being in Harry Potter's Great Hall ;-) However, I would have liked to have some decent shelves in the room. We had to leave all our stuff in the suitcases, which wasn't ideal. There's definitely room on the walls for some shelves, so that would be an improvement. Also the bunk bed was really shaky.

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. We are happy that you enjoyed your time here with us and enjoyed having breakfast in our church that reminded you of Harry Potters Great Hall, but that perhaps we could have some shelves in the bedrooms for suitcases to improve the room. We hope that should you return to Dublin that we can look after you again. Take care, Safe and Happy travels to you, Misty Dublin International Hostel
