This beautiful red brick building in one of Dublin's oldest neighbourhoods (just steps from Christ Church Cathedral) is a great setting for a hostel. It's quiet and leafy enough for a good night's kip but close enough to Temple Bar to be within post-pub crawl stumbling distance. There's a large self-catering kitchen and dining room, a TV room and colourful meeting room. Dorms are small but clean, and the front desk is open around the clock. Toast and coffee are served each morning for breakfast until 9.30am.
