“It’s a superb business,” McElligott said. “They fit about two and a half times the number of bedrooms that you would get with your typical budget hotel and they don’t have significant food and beverage operations. We would love to bring them to Dublin and I think we will bring them to Dublin. They’re very keen.”

Tetrarch is “actively looking” at adding another hostel or budget hotel in Dublin to its €450 million portfolio, he said. The Powerscourt hotel in Enniskerry, formerly a Ritz-Carlton, is also in Tetrarch's portfolio.
