Gogartys hostel may be a bit tired looking and not the cleanest hostel in the world, but the prices and great and the location can't be beaten. Especially if you are looking for lots of bars and live music. The hostel is located right in the middle of Temple Bar surrounded my bars. We stayed in a 4 bed private... More

We booked for 4 nights 2 beds in the 4 bed Dorm and checked out after the 1st night. We stayed in many Hostels around the world but never had to deal with things like just 1 key per Room - especially for a Dormitory - or that the staff lets an old guy, totally drunk and without any luggage...

You can't beat this location in the downtown area next to Temple Bar and being above its own bar, but beyond that there are definitely nicer hostels you could find for the same price and still good location. Cons: - one key per room, so the people in my room had to keep the door open a crack at all... More

The location of this hostel is really great, being in the middle of everything and having most of the attractions and pubs at a close walking distance. The bed was comfortable and clean. It is an ok place if you just wand to sleep there and not spend too much time inside. The staff was also alright, some people more... More

Positives: - The location is absolutely perfect if you're only in Dublin for a few days. It's right in the heart of Dublin with easy access to tourist attractions and, being right in the middle of Temple Bar, there is fantastic nightlife. - The rooms and bathrooms were clean. - There's a free continental breakfast! - The staff were lovely...

This hostel is perfectly located, staff is nice and the rooms are clean. Though what I hate is that not every bed has their own power outlet. Also a big downside is the fact that every room only has one key and if you have to go back to your room, you have to knock on the door for someone... More

Excellent location, but not very 'luxereous'. The accomodation is OK and you are in the 'hart' of Dublin in 2 minutes! I would reccomand this place if you are on a citytrip with friends. Just for 1 to 4 nights if you don't want to spent a lot of time on your room and going out for sightseeing or partying.... More

No Idea how this place got the star ratings but I would not recommend it to anyone. Firstly we booked the room for four 2 months prior to our arrival and yet when we came they said they did not have a four room and we had to be separated for the first night. Still not too sure why they... More

Yes you are in the middle of Temple Bar and... More
