Just got back from a 2 night stay at Gogartys Hostel for a girls weekend away. This was the first time I had ever stayed in a hostel so I wasn't really sure what to expect. We stayed in an 8 bed room and there conveniently were 8 in our party. I found the room to be clean and the... More

Stayed here on our last night in dublin before our flight and I think that's about as long as I'd need. The location is right over a major bar in the Temple Bar region, which is great...but remember, you're over a loud bar. The bed was comfortable enough, but I'll tell you, you can do better. There's nothing great about... More

I have to admitted, I was afraid to be in a Hostel so far away from home, but at Oliver St John Gogarty, was really easy. Everything clean, safe, and the personnel nice and helpful. Good breakfast. I was with other 10 people on the room and it was completely safe. I spent the first three days in Dublin relaxing,... More

This is the second time I have stayed in the rooftop apartments at Oliver St John Gogarty's and simply love it. Great location and the price was fantastic. The staff is extremely helpful and I had no issues whats so ever. Definitely worth the money!!! Thanks for a great time in Ireland!

So I've never stayed in a hostel before. I'm not afraid to admit, I like hotels when I'm away. However we knew Dublin is expensive so we were on a budget. Booked this for a 30th birthday weekend away with the girls. 6 girls all together in one room. I cannot fault this lovely place to stay. Location is spot... More

I'd gladly recommend this hostel to anyone who's travelling single, doesn't plan on going to bed early, doesn't mind a very basic breakfast (or has it somewhere else anyway as I always do). It's right in the middle of Dublin nightlife, which isn't a bother if your bedtime happens to be around 3 am. Clean at all times, piping hot... More

In a street behind the pub well known in Temple Bar, this hostel is a good place to spend a night or 2 in Dublin city center, and to enjoy the pleasures of night. Mixt dortorys, small bedrooms but ensuite. Barely cleaned, but functionnal, really noisy beacause of the proximity with pubs. The system of clothing the door is a... More

We stayed at four hostels in Ireland and this one had the worst security. Only one key card was issued PER ROOM of 6-8 beds. So before going to your room you checked at the desk to see if anyone was in your room already. If not, you got the key card. So ... guests either had to get up... More

Not the worst hostel I've ever stayed in but certainly not the best either. Only one key per room. You're expected to let each other into your room without actually knowing for sure who is meant to be staying in your room. Felt very unsafe. Ensuite bathroom was putrid, blocked toilet and sink, and no other bathrooms to use instead.... More

For the price it was very nice! My only real complaint is that I wasn't told of the pre-authorization, until I got an email 2 weeks before arrival. I booked through booking.com that says no deposit, and the pre-authorization wasn't mentioned, not even in the mail I got from the Hostel after booking, to confirm the data. I would have... More
