Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed 2 nights at Ashfield Hostel on a backpacking trip. It's central location meant that transportation from the airport and train station was easy, and that we were able to walk or take buses to anywhere we wanted to go in Dublin. We were only a block from the river, and around the corner from Trinity.

Staff was very friendly and willing to help. They offered many suggestions of things to do, see, and places to avoid.

Facilities are clean and they have a lot of options for breakfast than most hostels. Not a ton of room in between bunk beds in our dorm but the beds were comfortable and the room kept warm.

Overall, good value for the price.

Stayed here with a friend in a private room for 4 nights while exploring Dublin. Highly recommend—there’s a reason why all the reviews are generally positive. The front desk staff is super friendly and helpful, ask them for recommendations of places to go/ directions/ general knowledge about the area! Super knowledgeable and welcoming. The kitchen isn’t super big but it’s well equipped and the common room/eating area is large enough.

Can’t speak to the experience of being in a dorm but the private room was lovely, very clean and bright and a decent amount of floor space. You will hear if anyone is talking at all loudly in the hall outside, or through an open window across the “courtyard”, but that’s hostelling for you. If you’re a light sleeper though, earbuds might not go amiss.

Amazing location with pretty much all major Dublin tourist attractions within a half hour walk, and 5 mins from Tara Street DART station. For eating out, too many great cafés to name, but would particularly recommend the Literary Café right next door or Bread 41 on Pearse St. It was awesome to be close to Temple Bar—if you are walking around there, however, just have wits about you as we were approached for money, quite boldly, by homeless folks multiple times. Just what you would expect from any downtown though.

The hostel is very secure as you get buzzed in after the desk staff see you on camera by the front door, and you have an electric keycard for your room. All rooms have small safes. If you’re leaving after room-checkout time, there is a luggage room (“leave at own risk” but the door is locked and the front desk has the key, so only hostel guests have access), and also a variety of sizes of lockers im the lobby for your valuables.

5 stars, will definitely be back!

The place is very well located and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, as we spent roughly 8 hours between check in and check out and we paid a lot of money, it feels awfully expensive. Sure, in other Dublin hotels it can be much worst :-)

At the very least you would expect to have water and power at your hotel when you pay $175 USD for a night.. i just stayed here last night and the power went out and we got home from a pub at 11 pm and couldn’t take a shower or brush our teeth or have Wi-Fi to check in for our flight and we left the next day for Scotland. It was exactly the way i would not want to spend the day before traveling. Those are bare minimum comforts and they were out for hours and I wasnt about to stay up until 2 am to shower so we went to bed and tried to wake up even earlier for our early morning flight the next day. At least the water was working but our shower was freezing. I am absolutely shook that a place like this can charge that much money for a night that disastrous. Hopefully they will refund us or compensate us for that misery.

Currently staying here and hating it.
Our overhead light doesn't work and hasn't been replaced since we arrived five days ago.
The wifi is terrible. Can't even receive an email on their connection. So forget getting any work done.
The stairwell door next to our room slams loudly every time someone uses it, shaking our wall. As does the one at reception, no idea why they haven't fixed this.
The lobby was leaking from the ceiling as we arrived, a repairman had to enter our suite multiple times trying to see if it was coming from our room. (It wasn't)
More than half the outlets on the beds don't work, making charging our phones very difficult.
A cleaner came through our room during the day and left our first floor window open for birds or whoever to climb in and make themselves comfortable.
The beds are so rickety that they shake violently when either top or bottom bunk moves.
Also the ladder to the top bunk has a jagged edge so my fiancé cut his foot rather badly and the front desk could only offer us a new towel and some bandaids.
They haven't responded to my complaints or fixed anything.
I hate it here and want to leave but I can't get a refund.
DO NOT STAY HERE.
This doesn't even include the street noise which I understand is unavoidable.
The lack of security, anyone can enter the hostel and use the elevator. But not the stairwell? Okay.
I guess the one star I have to give is for the location, it's very central. This is my only compliment to this hostel.

The price was good. The location was good. However we booked for a group of 12 people and only got single bunks for 8 of us. Something like that. Therefore 4 of our group had to sleep on the floor, so it was a bit snug, but it was cheap! Wouldn’t return with family, but as a cheap break with friends it was ok.

Okay Hostel for the price, but the room were too tiny and we were 6 people. Had some problems with the water heat in the shower and we lived beside a construction site, so a lot of noice.

Would only recommend the hostel if you’re not planning on staying at your room for a long time :)

Great little hostel in the heart of Dublin with fantastic staff. We stayed in a dorm for 4 with ensuite and it was just as good and comfortable as a hotel for a lot less money. Will stay here again when we are next in Dublin. Really appreciated the free tea and coffee in the kitchens to help ourselves to. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Although the bathroom and showers are small, everyting is perfect. Good beds, option to store luggage secure and safe under your bed and also being able to rent a locker.
The staff is very friendly and helpfull. I had to leave earlier than expected and I even got a refund for the last night.

If I recall they have both paid storage and free storage. The free is up to you to trust. It is at your own risk The paid one is a secure locker in the lobby/sitting area. I don't know if it will fit a large suitcase. Why not put your valuables on the secure storage and the rest of the stuff in the regular storage. I forgot to upload the px on those lockers and storage. Will do so soon.

Hi! Yes the other answer is correct we have cages under the bunk beds to store your things and we sell padlocks in the vending machine if you need one. We also have electronic lockers in the common area for any other valuable items you may want to store. Each bed in our bunk beds come equipped with a shelf, sockets, usb ports and a reading light.

Hi! If you visit the 'location' page on the Ashfield website (not allowed post website links here, sorry) it should have all the info you need in terms of getting to the hostel. I think the ryanair shuttle may actually be the aircoach as suggested in the other answer, which is a good option but if you want the cheapest you can take a public bus (number 16) Hope that helps!

Hi, I'm afraid we don't have any laundry facilities for guests in Ashfield. All bed clothes are provided free of charge and towels are available to rent at reception but we don't have any facilities for guests to do their own laundry I'm afraid. Our reception staff can let you know where they are laundry facilities nearby during your stay. Regards.

Is there parking available when I stay at this Hostel?
Answer from A-Star-Backpackers
Dublin, Ireland20 contributions
Hi Lisa, We would agree with the other answer that if you can avoid bringing a car into the city that's probably the best solution. We don't have any parking ourselves and on-street parking is basically non-existent. There are multi-storey car parks nearby which will give you a discount when we stamp your ticket, if you email the hostel directly we can give you more details (unfortunately TA won't allow email addresses to be published here). Hope this helps! Regards.
