Four of us stayed at Barnacles Hostel Temple Bar for a night and we had booked a private room for 4 with its own bathroom. However, the dorm was really small for 4 people and we were not comfortable. On the good side, the stuff is very friendly and the location as central as it gets. Basic breakfast items are... More

I couldn't recommend this hostel highly enough. It was so central, so clean and we also got breakfast. The beds were very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again given the central location and cleanliness.

The rooms are tidy, the breakfast is ok, breakfast staff is constantly checking that everything is there, the reception staff is friendly and helpful. The whole stay is convenient and easy. I would recommend the hostel to anyone wanting to sleep for a low price in Dublin.

Great location (Temple Bar), very friendly and helpful staff (problem with wi-fi in our room was solved immediately, no problems whatsoever with early check in and bag drop off), really nice breakfast. No disturbing noise, though the hostel was full.

A good central location. We got plenty of assistance if you needed advice they were relaxed, welcoming and happy to help. The social area's were all clean and tidy. It had a lovely vibe! Breakfast quick and straight forward.

We stayed in an all-female room (six people total). The staff at Barnacles was super friendly, very helpful-- especially when we arrived very early in the morning from our flight hoping to store our luggage, and they let us hang out in the hostel for a bit even though check-in wasn't until 2:30 (since most breakfast places in Dublin weren't...
