It's a little silly to have to pay for luggage storage, by which I mean leaving your bag in the luggage room on the morning you check out and picking it up later that day (not overnight storage). This seems like a normal hostel service that I've never had to pay for elsewhere, and since its only a few euros I can't imagine it's making that much of a difference to the hostel bottom line.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. On checking out of the hostel we offer the service to provide secure luggage storage at a small fee of 1.50c per person per day. For a similar service down town or at the airport it starts at 5euro per bag. We have a lot of guests who are catching buses or flying out later in the afternoon or evening and rather than having to walk around town with it all, they leave it locked securely with us, the security of these items is important to us as much as it is to the guest and makes a huge difference with regards to customer satisfaction which goes hand in hand with the hostel bottom line. We hope that should you return to Dublin that you will consider letting us look after your stay. Kindest regards Misty Dublin International Youth Hostel

Je pense que les chambres peuvent être mieux désinfectées. Aussi, il est important d'avoir un ascenseur. Enfin, les douches pour les femmes devraient être plus accessibles.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. The bedrooms are cleaned daily and fresh linen is given to all guests on check in alternatively it is put in to the private bedrooms. The hostel is unfortunately not wheel chair accessible and this is advertised, and there is no plan to put a lift in to the hostel simply due to the nature of the building and the number of split levels in it, but we do have helpful and willing staff who can try to get your luggage up to the bedroom and back down again. The toilets and showers are located on 3 of the 4 floors of the hostel on the female floors. Thank you again for taking the time to comment, we hope that should you visit Dublin again, that we may look after your stay. Regards Misty Dublin International Youth Hostel

Ich hatte nur einen ganz kurzen Aufenthalt im Hostel. Jedoch stimmt für mich das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis und wenn einem bewusst ist, dass es wirklich ein HOSTEL und kein HOTEL ist, dann ist es sicherlich eine gute, zentrale, freundliche Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in Dublin!
