  • The hostel and staff were great. My only advice is to spend the extra few euros and get a room with lower occupancy. Both nights were interrupted by late partiers or were spent trying to be super quite after coming in late. Avoid if you don’t want to be in the heart of the party scene. Otherwise, its a great location and central to night life.

  • We had a very pleasant four day stay in a private room. Very clean room, toilet, douche and a good bed. Sufficient breakfast and coffee by the hostel. Because we like a bigger breakfast, we bought some extra's in the supermarket nearby. Hostel is located centrally with a lot of pubs and restaurant. We had several questions but the staff was very patient and helpfull. Ireland is a great country and we will certainly come to this country and als to this hostel.

  • It was very noisy, not just the outside with people coming & going from Temple Bar which I expected, But toilets flushing which sounded like a river in our room, Fans making mad noises and doors banging.

  • This place was great! 21 year old female college student traveling alone, so safety is important to me. I always felt very safe at the hostel. I stayed in the 8 bed mixed room and all the people I met were really nice. the hostel has very nice and helpful staff and also has free tours and a really fun pub crawl every day/night. I was only in Dublin for two days but I had such a blast because of all the people I met at Barnacles and on the pub crawl. Comfy beds and everything was clean.

  • The atmosphere was really great! Even in my short (1 night) stay I met a lot of wonderful people, who made me wish I didn't have to catch a flight home the next day. The staff was also superb!!!! From helping with how and when to get to the airport, to repeating directions on how to get to must see sights, to just being a smiling faces! When I left they were even trying to come up with a fun holiday celebration for everyone staying through Christmas! Overall it was a terrific place!
