I stayed here a couple of nights before and after a Shamrocker tour (their office is around the corner). It was nice to be right next to THE Temple Bar pub to see the action, but you hear the noise from the street late into the night. Because of this, you need to keep the windows closed, but then the...

Me and my friend stayed for 3 nights and this place was perfect! Having stayed in plenty of Hostels all over Europe this one is definitely up there with one of the best, we stayed in one of the private twin en-suite rooms, it was a bit cramped but did the job, en-suite with shower (which was great).

Myself and two friends booked out a private room of four bed and private bathroom. The beds were comfortable and it had a nice opening window which was good since it was a bit stuffy. The bathroom was small but very clean. The only downside was that there was only two plug ins for what was supposed to be four... More

This is a great hostel! The location is perfect, so central to everything. We stayed in a private room with bathroom. Whilst the room & bathroom were very very tiny it was fine for a short stay. There is also no elevator, so carrying heavy luggage up the stairs (especially when on the top floor) is not much fun. But... More

I spent four nights at the Barnacles Temple Bar and everything was great! My room was clean and the insuite bathroom aswell! The bed and pillow were confortable, which is something we can't say about every hostel. The staff was kind and helped me with everything I needed. The only thing that stopped me from giving 5 stars to my... More

The best location you could possibly ask for. Close to all the bars and restaurants. The staff are very nice. We had a very small room but we had our own shower and the toilet which was really good. The mattresses were one of the most comfortable I've seen in the hostels. Their common room is comfy, there's computers you... More

I have stayed in many hostels, but this one really blew me away. The location could not be any better it's in the center of everything you want to see and be apart of. All of the staff was beyond informative any question I asked they either knew the answer or figured it out extremely quick, Shane especially! I advised... More

Excellent place to stay. Great location. The best staff- seriously so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and the whole atmosphere felt safe and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Dublin alone or in a group.
