Dublin International Youth Hostel Dublin

Dublin International was shortlisted in the top 5 as ‘Favourite Irish Hostel’, as voted for by readers of TNT Magazine!

Our quality awarded Dublin Hostel (YHA Dublin) is open 24 hours 365 days a year. One of the best Dublin hostels for international guests as it’s only a ten minute walk to the city centre and the main Dublin tourist attractions. We have plenty of events on all year around and great discounts for all attractions from bus tours to pub crawls and an outdoors eating area too! Our friendly staff can offer the best recommendations and discounts for things to do while visiting Dublin.

All guests get a FREE continental breakfast served daily in our Church restaurant. Our chef also makes home-cooked meals for groups of 10 or more! The hostel is especially well-suited for groups and there’s lots of family rooms available too. The hostel is safe and secure (with a FREE gated car park).

This Dublin Hostel actually used to be a convent and was converted into a Youth Hostel with just under 300 beds but it still has “The Church” as our restaurant – complete with stained-glass windows!

Our Dublin Hostel is also just across the road from the infamous Black Church which is mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses. It was also the favorite Church of infamous English Poet Sir John Betjeman and the Dubliner Austin Clarke who refers to the local lore in his autobiography (called “Twice round the Black Church”) which says that if you walk counter clockwise around the church three times at midnight, you will summon the devil himself!!

An Óige is committed to operating its hostels in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. Our Dublin hostel has been accredited by Green Hospitality and holds the ECO Label for its efforts.

If you’re driving an electric car, we now have a charging point for e-cars at our hostel which you can use for free if you stay with us.
