  • The worst hostel in Dublin. I had to change room, because of staff's mistake. but she was not saying any words about sorry. and I asked staff to alloate lower bad. staff said "there are no available bed." but I was a first guest check in, when I entered room, no beds occupied. except for awful staff problem, almost thing is terrible. this hostel offer a key per room nor per person. it's common to open the room door toilet flush was not working, big noisy! Terrible!

  • It was a really nice time there. The only problem I had is you can go throw the kitchen door in the pub. But is was okay. The rrom was great and clean we only had little problems with the shower and hot waterbut it was fine. The Hostel is directly in the City everything is near. It wasn't to loud. the obly thing in the ten bed room was we only had one key...

  • If you just want a place to stay after partying the whole night, it might be OK. But for a normal tourist, the street is way too loud to get more than one hour sleep @night. The Bathroom was that dirty that you couldn't move barfeet inside. The water from the shower was 3,5 from 4 days I've stayed ice cold, when we ask them to fix it, it took one more day to take aktion for them and the shower was warm for only 5 hours. Breakfast is toast and cereals, but mostly not finished at opening time.

  • The lady at the reception was really nice and helpful. They even surprised me a free beer coupon. You can get a free Guinness in the hostel Bar just nearby. I am not a alcohol lover but I was happy to try my first Guinness in Dublin since it was famous here. The only problem is that only one key for each room, not everyone got a key. Overall it is awesome! The location is easy to find and near the temple bar and other attractions and train station.

  • The one key per room system is annoying and disruptive if you want to try to get any sleep at all. Our bathroom was also not cleaned for two days.

  • Great hostel. Great breakfast. I've stayed here a few times but the room I had did not have any storage areas to lock up my belongings so everything you bring is out in the open/on your bed.

  • The gogartys was.. well an experiance. The staff is nice and the hostel is located in temple bar... so far so good. But we stayed in the 12 bed dorm and we had to share one key... the bathrom was not really clean and there was no way to get some fresh air into the room. But after all you can stay there for sleeping.
