Location was perfect - right in the centre of Temple Bar; in fact, the famous Temple Bar pub is on the same small street. I stayed in a six bed dorm which was clean and reasonably spacious - my only small qualm with the room was the lockers, which take the form of lockable cages under the beds and are... More

The location of Barnacles you cannot fault. It's right around the corner of Temple Bar. Perfect! The rooms were very clean and a good size for 6 people. Only negative experience was Inga at the front desk. We booked a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher and she gave us the incorrect meeting point. We were running blocks trying... More

The double room was small but had an extremely comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was good. The wifi was good in the kitchen but not very reliable throughout other areas in the house. The location is excelent! The evening activities are great for people travelling alone or on a budget. The staff is nice!

Perfect location for sightseeing in the city, literally in the centre of Temple Bar. Very touristy but great base if it's a first time visit. The hostel isn't much to look at in terms of design and decor, however it is without a doubt one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Booked for a 10 bed dorm, but... More

Loved this hostel and would definitely come back. Stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm and beds were comfy! Only downside was the tiny tiny ensuite, we couldn't shower without the floor getting soaked and although the shower was really powerful that's not always a good thing when the shower doors broken haha. But this was a minor detail for... More

I really enjoyed my time there. It was loud in the night and in the evening because of Temple Bar, but the staff was very friendly and funny! The rooms were clean! The hostel has the perfect location for party people!

If you're coming to Dublin, you want to stay in Temple Bar. This is like London's Soho, or New York's Manhattan. Temple Bar has nightlife, pubs, shopping, and an eclectic mix of people. This hostel is exactly 2 doors down from THE Temple Bar. The location is IDEAL. This is one of THE BEST hostels I've ever stayed at. Very... More

Stayed in a six bed room. The room was a bit small for the number of beds. There was also no ventilation so if someone showered the room was damp for hours. Staff was courteous. Airport transfer was cheap and timely. Very noisy place. Situated in Temple Bar. Stay here if you're looking for a party. Find somewhere else if... More

Stayed here a few times with friends on visits to Dublin. Great time. Clean. Tidy. Organised. Very helpful. Rooms are small but comfortable. No curfew. Swipe cards to get in. 24hr desk security. Shaped kitchen area. We stayed in an en suite room as there was 6 of us. Great stay.

A little noisy from the bars in the area, but amazing service. Clean, crisp linens, hot water and free breakfast. Booking was a breeze and they helped us arrange shuttles to and from the airport as well as recommending local restaurants and activities. Will be back!
