The location of this hostel is ideal, probably the best that you could ask for. Perfectly situated in Temple Bar with a handful of great pubs within a stone's throw. The rooms are great and the staff are very helpful. Check in and check out process was ridiculously simple and smooth. Only complaint is that the free breakfast is a... More

The hostel is near the temple bar and is in a prime location for night life in dublin. During the night however, my purse was stolen from my locker ( granted I did not hide my key well). All of my money and documents were stolen. There was a security camera in the hallway we stayed in. The staff told... More

As long as you don't mind a little noise from the partying going on outside, this place is great! It's quieter on week nights but if you want to enjoy some Irish beer and music, the fun is literally right outside and around the block. Located in the center of the temple bar area you can find anything you want... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, mainly due to the lovely staff. Shane, Roxeanne and Arthur went above and beyond in pointing out awesome places to explore and generally were fun and the epitome of Irish kindness and charm! The stay includes a free breakfast and has great facilities to meet other people. You'd have to be pretty... More

This hostel was very fun and clean. Easy to meet people. However, you will get no sleep. VERY loud with the bars below. Bring your own towel or rent. Beds firm. Light breakfast included. Shuttle service to the airport every 30 mins, cost 7 euros, reception will set it up for you - very convenient

This location is awesome - it's just very loud on Friday and Saturday nights as other reviewers have said. If you plan to be out as one of the revelers, you can't do better than this place. Really clean, good water pressure, friendly staff, super comfy bed (we stayed in a private double ensuite). The room was a bit tight... More

I stayed at the Barnacles Hostel in Dublin for a total of 6 nights while I was in Ireland; the staff at reception were always pleasant to deal with, and always took the extra step in helping me plan, book, and supply me with the info I needed to make the most out of my days in Dublin and Galway.

Stayed here with a friend of mind when exploring Dublin. Cant beat the price and location in Temple Bar. Highly recommended. Just not this is not a fancy pants hotel. Its for sleeping only. If you want to hang out with students and tourists from all over the world you can do that here and exchange travel stories and tips.... More

We had no idea what to expect when we arrived and were pleasantly surprised on how clean his hostel was! The rooms and bathrooms were spotless and even cleaner than some hotels we have stayed in. The location was fantastic and right in the center of the city! It was easy to walk to everywhere we wanted and there was... More
