Excellent Value Bed For The Night Nov 27, 2009
I Arrived at the Hostel at about 10am and so i was a little early to go straight to my dorm. The friendly Receptionist let me use the luggage holding room to store my bag and asked me to come back at around 2pm. When i came back i checked in and was given my key card to the dorm and also my security pass. The Hostel change the colour of the security pass everyday so that only the customers can enter as you have to show it to the receptionist when you enter. The reception desk is manned 24 hours so you can come and go as you please. Inside there is a big dining area where you can eat your breakfast in the morning (breakfast is included in the price and consists of either toast with a selection of jams or cereal, slightly limited but then it is only 11 euros per night) There is a Games room with a pool table, a reading room with plenty of books and comfy couches and there is also a TV room with dvds to choose from. There is also a big kitchen with storage space in fridges and cupboards so that you can cook your own food. I found it was a very quiet hostel (This is something i prefer) but i was there mid-week and i imagine it to be busy on weekends. I found the reception staff to be very helpful and they have a great knowledge of the local area which is also very helpful. My particular dorm was mixed and had 12 beds in it however there are other single sex dorms and private rooms available. Through speaking to other people staying here i found that i paid less than them as i had booked in advance on the internet, this is something that i would recommend as it saved me about 5 euros per night. The Hostel is located on the River Liffey, which is ideal for seeing the city as most of it centres around the river. All in all i found the hostel to be excellent and i would definately recommend it to anybody travelling to Dublin!

After leaving another hostel out of fear, this was a great hostel to go to for two 20 year old girls. I definately felt safe and welcome immediately when I arrived. It's also a great location! The beds are like any other hostel, but I'd say it was a pretty clean hostel!

The Four Courts is located right in the heart of central Dublin, on the Liffey. It's the first hostel I ever stayed in so it really stands out in my mind. It has a lounge, a dining area, nice kitchen, and many rooms. I'll admit that I was a little overwhelmed by the fact that I was in Europe, but the staff (with their Irish accents!) were really nice and shortly after I checked in I met several neat people from all over the globe. By that evening, our whole floor had met each other and we all went out to one of the pubs down the street, where we drank, sang and danced to the wee hours of the morning! Anyway, it's a hostel geared toward people in the 20's, so you'll find lots of people to hang out with.

i stayed at the four courts hostel for the better part of the two weeks i spent in dublin. I found it to be a great place to stay, with a pretty good location - just a short walk to temple bar district. There are also a few grocery stores within a short distance.the staff was friendly, helpful, and understanding. The prices were reasonable, and the facilities more than adequate. It had a large kitchen with everything you would need to prepare a meal and plenty of fridge space to store your leftovers. I stayed in both ensuite and traditional dorm rooms, and all of them had the typical bunk bed setup you come to expect. One problem was that there were not enough cages underneath the beds for everyone in the room.their breakfast was decent but nothing great - toast, cereal, coffee. They had a reading room downstairs, along with a tv room and a pool table. They do have internet availible, but it was quite expensive. There was no self service laundry, but the staff would do it overnight for five euros i believe it was.all in all it was a great experience and i will definitely be looking into staying at the four courts hostel when i am back in dublin.

The four courts was fun. fat-boy slim played continuously in the hallways, there's a huge spiral staircase with fun cartoon fact murals on the wall as you head up/down it, a big kitchen, big areas to hang out, a pool table, and helpful staff. first hostel i ever stayed in europe and it was a great one. would definitely stay again.
