18 Of us stayed at the citi backpackers in Dublin for one night the hostel is clean and the staff very friendly. Citi is bang in the middle of the city so is very handy for everything that you'd like to go and see in Dublin. We have already made plans to use the citi backpackers again in the future.

Staff were very friendly and nice to me during my stay, I can't fault their attitude but I have complaints about their upkeep of the hostel. I had to ask for toilet paper at reception practically every time because they do not go and replace them. They do not assign bed numbers so my stuff was thrown off my bed...

I walked into the hostel where a man at the reception buzzed me in and asked me why I was here. I said I was staying at the hostel then he began to yell at me and said I was a liar. He began yelling "You never stayed here! You are lying! Where is your receipt". I told him I...

Please close down the Citi Backpackers Hostel; it needs a massive desifentation, as it smelt bacteria all over the places. please go downstair and check room 8, the toilet is disgusting and you cannot sleep at night as people close the windows and there is no air circulation so you cannot breath well. kitchen need to be redone again as...

After looking at the reviews beforehand, I didn't look forward to staying here whatsoever. But to me and my friends the place was great. The man in the reception was very kind and checking in was quick and easy. We had one of the 4 person private rooms on the top floor, which had an en-suite with a shower. We...

This hostel has made up my mind to never want to stay in a hostel ever again. It's old and dirty, and the facilities are the worst. We checked in late and there is no discretion with the staff when it comes to any information. There were a bunch of people sitting in the lobby, who I didn't even see...

Absolutely disgusting place to stay. First checked in and came to reception to ask for an extra pillow to be shouted at by the owner to get to my f...ing room. I could not believe the way in which we where treated. Asked for extra towels to be told no. You have to have one towel the whole stay which...

Staff were superb and very friendly. Some of the fittings in the room were slightly hazardous but overall it was terrific. Furniture in the room made communal activities an ease, lovely flat surfaces. Vending machines were also a joy. Wifi faultless and worked perfectly 0% of the time. Overall a great weekend filled with great memories. Ps, the train going...

Just check pictures, you don't need to know anything else. Never get in! Two shared toilets for four floor house of horror say quite enough. I think Ireland hygiene should close this place and owners should be send to hell. BTW Free wifi? There is only on reception and almost didn't work at all...
