Top tips for finding Dublin hostel deals

  • Staying in a hostel in Dublin can give you several benefits over other accommodation options like hotels and vacation rentals. Dublin hostels offer significantly lower rates than hotels in the area, and they are still centrally located around popular areas like Temple Bar, the area around Phoenix Park, and the Guinness factory.
  • As you’re browsing around for a hostel in Dublin, you’ll have several different options of neighborhoods to stay in. There are concentrations of hostels located in several areas of Dublin, the most popular being the Temple Bar area and the neighborhood just west of the downtown area near the sprawling Phoenix Park. Both areas are convenient for public transportation, although the area near Temple Bar has more options of lively bars and restaurants, and the area near Phoenix Park offers great access to tourist attractions without being right in the middle of the nightlife.
  • If you’re traveling solo to Dublin, it’s important to pick a hostel that has the right amenities and facilities to ensure a smooth and eventful trip. Sky Backpackers is a great option for solo travelers because of the game room, the regular live music events, and the proximity to tourist areas. Sky Backpackers is located just a short walk away from the bustling Temple Bar and Grafton Street areas, giving solo travelers plenty of options for food and entertainment.
  • When you’re traveling with a group, it’s important to book a hostel that can comfortably accommodate everyone in your party. One of the best hostels in Dublin for groups is Generator Dublin. This hostel features room options that can accommodate two, four, five, six, or eight people, which you can mix and match as your group number requires. You can also book sightseeing tickets and travel arrangements at the front desk, saving you the hassle of booking group tickets on your own.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Dublin, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Dublin in January and October.
  • Hostel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll likely find the best hostel deals in Dublin if you stay on a Sunday. The most expensive day for hostel bookings is Thursday.
  • If you want to ensure you grab a bargain, try to book at least 90 days before your stay to get the best price for a Dublin hostel.
