  • 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.

  • The hostel bar is great, the location is perfect, and the staff is friendly. The only complaint I have is the noise. If you aren't okay with a party hostel that is loud 24/7 then don't stay here. I would come back and stay though!

  • It was a lovely place, with a great location. The were only a few problems I found. 1. The noise, not surprising since the hostel is in a very popular bar district and it was nice to listen to local artists out my window, it just got a bit distracting if you were trying to sleep. 2. The key system in this hostel was the strangest I've ever encountered. I've never been in a hostel where a room of 12 beds and there is only 1 key to share with the entire room.

  • Only one key for the room that we have to share with the other persons in the room. The problem is that we don't know each other so it's not useful
