Poor 2.0
Rude staff, and I was denied entry claiming I was drunk. It was 2 in the afternoon, my flight arrived at 8am so had been awake mega early. I hardly qualify having 3 pints of Guinness being drunk. Won’t return. Actually spoiled my stay in Dublin.

Nothing to crow or cry about. Fair for the price.
The Four Courts Hostel is conveniently located and my visit was fine, by and large. The building and its facilities do feel a bit dated, but things were clean and never seemed unhygienic. I was in a mixed dorm room and the bunk beds, whilst not super-comfy, were fine and did have those handy charging points built into the headrests. Also, there were roll-out cages beneath each bunk bed big enough for an airline standard sized carry-on suitcase, a day bag, a pair of shoes, and other bits and bobs. These were lockable – bring a padlock! – and I felt my stuff was secure whenever I was out. The shower is one of those "press this button every 30 seconds or the water will stop" deals. The free breakfast is a bit disappointing. I've been to hostels all over the world and am familiar with different interpretations of a continental breakfast, but theirs is just a couple types of cereal, a milk dispenser, bins of sliced store bread next to toasters, a few communal dishes of jam, two jugs of watery squash, and a coffee and hot water canteen. My first day, I arrived 1 hour into the 2.5 hour breakfast window only to find they were out of the cereal I wanted and had only a couple end slices of bread left. After ten minutes of seeing no attempt by the staff to replenish anything, I asked if more cereal or bread were coming. After another five minutes or so, some materialised. I made sure to get down at the very start of the breakfast period after that! ;-)

Very good 8.0
Decent budget option
Decent hostel overall, with wifi in all rooms, decent sized common areas and rooms weren't cramped. Check-in was 24h and hassle free. Excellent for arriving late night. The bed is already set and ready for you, so no need to worry about wrestling wiht he bunk beds trying to dress your bed at 1am. Breakfast was very simple. No fruits or ham/cheese for the toasts (only butter/jam). No napkins to be found anywhere either. Beds had a charging station with socket and usb, as well as a light. I stayed in room 001 (10 beds) and there was 1 toilet+shower for all of us, so it slightly inconvenient in the morning. Overall an ok budget place.

a very good for value hostel. but awful beds!
From the outside it looks very run down. But when inside its very smart and presentable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is good, but theres not much choice. But it is enough to last you till lunchtime... My biggest negative is the comfort of the beds. I had a very sore back from them.
