We were backpacking and stayed at this hostel for one night, since we were staying in Dublin overnight so we could leave for Limerick in the morning. It was very affordable, and we were placed in a 10 bed dorm room (5 bunkbeds). They did not even place me and my boyfriend in the same bunkbed, although we had requested... More

First off. We arrived to attend 2 different concerts with 2 different age groups but all up for a good night. Arrived in reception to a long line of people in front. Elderly man in front was treated with no respect whatsoever. Felt so sorry for him. We checked in and headed up in lift. My son went down to... More

We stayed in the hostel for two nights. The place is clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff are available 24 hours. Ours was the 10 bed dorm but the other visitors were friendly, its a nice way to meet other travellers. Breakfast was good, a plentiful supply of tea, coffee, toast, fruit, cheese, and crackers. Great value for... More

My wife and I have visited Dublin a fair few times and always come here for a drink. It is easily the most eye-catching place in the Temple Bar area ! We get a little confused as there are so many levels and different bar areas under one roof ! On this particular evening we decided to walk up the... More

Just back from a night away in Dublin. We stayed in the penthouse apartments of Oliver St. John Gogarty's Hostel. We loved it. The apartment was clean and for such a great and busy area of the city, we heard virtually no noise from the street below and really, the street was still lively and bustling when we hit the...

We stayed here for 5 days in a tin ensuite room. Bed was comfy and providing the window was shut, the noise outside wasn't too bad. Our room was clean and generally good all round. Wifi is a bit poor as it cuts on and off. It is free, however. Breakfast was fine- toast and cereal with tea and coffee... More

Paid €70 for a twin room which was great for privacy but very very basic. Couldn't have a shower because it wouldn't work and when we told reception they didn't apologise. Also, chewing gum all over the beds!! Other than that, location was great just annoyed we couldn't shower after paying €70 for one night.

The hostel is in a great location! However it is in one of the more expensive areas in Dublin therefore you need to walk out a little if you want cheaper food prices etc. The hostel also offered continental breakfast which was very basic but worth it for the price! The room was perfect for its purpose as we spent... More

I stayed here for a long weekend (3 nights) over the bank holiday weekend in the self catering penthouse apartment. Overall, the experience was good although on entering the hostel reception area I feared the worst. Having never stayed in a hostel, this confirmed that I never will chose to. We met the great unwashed in the reception area but... More
