x The average starting price for a place to stay in Dublin is £50 per night.
ali4mick When I arrived, there didn't appear to be any secure car parking so I parked on the kerb (found out later on that there is but you need to know where to find it first). No-one answered the door so I waited a while and then tried again...this time someone answered but it was a guest! Mary (the owner) had gone out and left a note saying she'd be back soon but she didn't appear the whole time I was chatting to the other guest...instead a spanish woman under the employ of the Guesthouse came along and ended up giving me the key to my room. The room was clean but the ensuite bathroom was tiny and the bed was hard. But the guesthouse was in a relatively central position to get to the city centre, pubs, restaurants and the airport (although this did make it slightly noisy). An alright place to stay..especially if you want to wander round Dublin City.
Paul McG I was very happy with this Hostel and would recommend it without question My only problem was that as i had arrived a little later than "cleaning hours" the bathroom had been destroyed by the other guests and tiptoeing around the mess was a bit aggravating. Also the show appeared not to be serviced regularly and the sink was leaking. Then again for 10euro for the night, it was perfect - the beds were comfortable and warm and everyone was cheerful!
sue.heyn I had wonderful days in the Botanic View. Thanks again, Bernie and PJ, for being helping in every situation............ All the best
sofiasvard Four nights, good sized doorms, nice beds. Clean and quiet. Staff is great and the common room as well. Kitchen is all good and breakfast too but there aren't really enough plates and such. Otherwise it's a great stay and the location is perfect!
lindathors We stayed in Abigails for three days, and found it really comfortable! It was our first hostel-experience, and our expectations were low - but they were blown to pieces. Super location; In walkable distance for EVERYTHING, not noisy (we lived in the 4th floor), pretty clean (exepct for one black hair in the bed and a bit of mold in the window), really nice and friendly staff, and the breakfast was simple and delicious. The rooms felt safe, and the beds were comfy. The Airport-shuttle was also really helpful, and cheap enough for our wallets. We will absolutely recommend Abigails. - The Norwegian girls.
wojcikwl The hostel is among the best we have visited (and we travel a lot) and its good atmosphere is created mainly by Emma, the most polite,helpful and friendly receptionist we have ever met. Wlodzimierz Wojcik
yen2002uk The bus stop from Limerick to Dublin is not bus station.. I got the problem to find it at the beginning.. I could feel somewhere around there, but nobody on the street know where it located.. There I decided to go to pub for a drink and ask where it is..
pika_one Was ok. Toilets were rather clean, especially those that were ensuite. But internet was not free. Wifi is free. So unless you have your own laptop, you have to pay to use the computer to use the internet.
doitnowmk Great hostel, conveniently located by most sites, staff excellent and VERY helpful....saved money with their suggestions. Cold at night
liljozee I stayed on a room of 6 beds with a bathroom. I haven't been on many hostels, but I can surely say that this is one of the best. It's better if I start talking about its flaws: maybe it is a little expensive for me (I'm from Spain) and one thing I didn't like was that the shower it's not movable. All the other aspects are nearly perfect, starting from the friendly atmosphere there was in the hostel. Breakfast was great, maybe because I love self-services meals!
lisa.mc Great location and easy to find. Rooms are basic but comfortable so great value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. We highly recommend the Anchor Guesthouse and hope to return very soon.
