“Basic hostel but surprisingly rich breakfast”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on September 16, 2019

Great location - accessible with public transportation (airport shuttle bus) and only a 4 minute walk from O'Connell Street. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially the lady working the day...

“Perfect for our needs!”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on August 28, 2019

When were there we found it clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful. The kitchen had what we needed for our stay and the free breakfast was basic, but good. We never had to wait for a shower...

“Basic hotel”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on August 09, 2019

Hotel is super basic in old facilities(but still nice :)) so, to begin with the building is an old building but still has some pretty and cozy areas, they give you a average breakfast, rooms are huge...


MEC Hostel is only 10 minutes walk from the Spire on O'Connell street, Dublins Main thoroughfare. On the same street is the James Joyce centre, only 15 minutes walk from Templebar dublins nightlife centre.
