My friend and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights over the weekend in April. We booked a 6-bed female dorm at a reasonable price (just under £20 each per night). The hostel itself is just off the main road (so easy to find from the bus links to/from the airport). It's location is amazing, literally next door to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 12 nights when we first moved to Dublin, the hostel was clean, safe, and the staff were very helpful. It was in a great location for us to experience Temple Bar for the first time as well as get all of our documents in order in the city center. The cages under the... More

Fantastic location, right in the heart of Dublin's main party district. Staff were brilliant and very helpful before and during our stay. We were here for a stag do and it was ideal. I would easily stay again and I would definitely recommend this place anyone!

This is the perfect place to stay in Dublin, I was only in town for two nights but I met great people and saw everything I wanted to see. Barnacle is so close to everything you don't need a car or even a taxi. Just walk walk walk!

Best hostel I've ever been! Seriously! First, the personal is really friendly and helpful, rhere is free breakfast every morning and many other activities every day. Second, the location is the best in Dublin as not only you are close to all the pubs, bars and restaurants, and of course to the Temple Bar, but you are also close to... More

If you are looking to be near the pubs in Dublin, this is the place to be. I think I checked in at the perfect hour, as there was nobody else checking in or out, and the small lobby area was empty. It was a quick and friendly check in, in which I was also able to purchase a ticket... More

If you're looking for a silent's night sleep, where you can hear a pin drop, then this place is not for you. However, if you can sleep with some noise then you'll be just fine! I paid just over £17 a night for a 6 bed-female dorm. I've stayed in a fair few hostels, and this is by far the... More

This was a great location and we were close to everything, it was all walking distance. There's always something to do and the staff were pretty friendly and helpful. The hostel featured cool stuff to do like bar crawl and free walking tours which was nice. Only complaint I have is that it was a little noisy considering the location... More

For what it was, it was a good hostel. The location is great, it's right in the middle of temple bar, so there's no more than a 5-15 minute walk to some of the best pubs I've ever been to, as well as the main city centre. Our room was a bit small for 6 people, but we coped fine.... More

Really loved this hostel, the staff were super friendly, the free breakfast was unexpected but so welcome and the hostel could not be more perfectly located for exploring Dublin, in particular the Temple Bar area. I was aware it might be a bit noisy but decided two nights wouldn't matter, we were given a private double room facing on to... More
