I was skeptical staying in the Temple Bar area, but knew it would be beneficial for my schedule. I encountered no problems staying at Barnacles! In fact, their staff was superb; helpful in every situation, very friendly, and invested in me as a traveler. I highly recommend this location for people of all ages and backgrounds. Good opportunity to meet... More

I recently organised a stag do to Dublin for 20 people. We stayed 1 8bed dorm, 1 11bed dorm and one twin room. The dorm rooms were great value but the twin room was basic and expensive for what it was. We stayed for 2 nights. On the Friday the hostel had no hot water as they were busy and... More

The hostel is really well located, the rooms were acceptably clean, the kitchen is quite big and there is plenty of food for breakfast. The staff of the hostel is really nice and helpful. The weak point I'd highlight is the ventilation of the rooms.

Good located hostel. Nothing to relax but to be close to the city. At morning rush-hour hard to get a place in the "kitchen", so get up early boys and girls. Rooms are ok, service was very kind. Full range of information available.

Despite being in the middle of a busy part of Dublin the Hostel was quite quiet and very cheap. It is clean and decently maintained. It is also very close to everywhere you are likely to want to go, which makes life convenient, with plenty of places to eat at nearby: from the cheapest to the swankiest. The staff are... More

To be honest , moldy smell in hallways and towels and bedrooms. It's located in the heart of temple bar which can be seen as a good or bad thing ...you can hear everything so....also much more options out there that are less expensive or just as expensive and clean etc

It was a good chance to find rooms in this hôtel. We were near the sites we want to visit. And the price was very interesting. All the staff was very sympathic and give us good plans to have reduction in parking for exemple.
