  • I only stayed one night so my experience in this hostel are limited. Overall I enjoyed the stay at Barnacles. Staff was friendly, the wifi was good, decent free breakfast (for a hostel), power outlet and nightlight at every bed. So I can recommend this hostel and would come back.

  • We went mid week so it was a bit quiet, so can't really comment on atmosphere at weekend. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location. We would definitely use this hostel again.

  • Well it may be a bit noisy during the night but the place is quiet if you need to work during the day. The atmosphere is not particularly great but the facilities are always clean. Good place to stay.

  • If you are ready for a party then this is the hostel for you. You are right next door to the Temple bar and an amazing night life. If you are not ready to party until 3am then you are in for a rough night. The walls are paper thin so unless you have the best earplugs available you will hear everything outside until 3 in the morning. It is hard because the rooms get very warm with all the people in them but you can not open the windows because of the noise. Staff was amazing though!

  • The hostel was OK, but we got a room at the very bottom of the building, almost at the basement, so it was really humid, smells bad and the cleanliness of the room and bathroom was not good. The hostel has a great location though
