The Hostel is located very good next to the Temple Bar. So it is a bit loud, but I guess nobody stays in Dublin to sleep. It is very clean and the breakfast is ok, too. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at barnacles on a Tuesday night, and Olivia made our stay awesome!!! She was so welcoming and accommodating. We've stayed in multiple hostels in Dublin before, and Barnacles was by far the best. Location, atmosphere, and Olivia, mean that you are missing out if you stay anywhere other than Barnacles, Dublin!

We booked a double room with bathroom which was fine but the selling point for us was the fab location. Great area with a nice buzz. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was a nice touch We'd return again.

This hostel is amazing and such good value! The staff were friendly and helpful and the included continental breakfast was a lovely addition.

The hostel was excellent! Good staff, great location! The room was nice and tidy, but I didn't sleep all that well. However, I will definitely be back for another visit soon. I loved the free breakfast and the value of the room.

I enjoyed my stay at Barnacles Hostel a lot! The location could not be better, just a 20 second walk to famous Temple Bar. There's all the stuff you need in the kitchen to cook your own food. We were staying in a 10 bed room, could be a little bit more cleaner, espacially shower and toilet.. but over all,...

You couldn't get any closer to the nightlife of Dublin with this hostel. That being said, it could be noisy but you can always ask for a room away from the street. The beds were comfortable and there were outlets, a reading light and under bed storage to lock up your bags. Each room had an en suite which was...

I loved everything - people are very nice! my blanket was with a lot hair for another person who used before me, I cleaned myself and don't complain, but its something you can improve. Maybe better pillow? I Loved the location and how clean was the toilet, put the shower door keep opening and make all the room so wet...

Nice hostel, good location and welcoming staff. I appreciated the free breakfast in the morning. But there wasn't so much activities organised in the hostel (or I could'nt find them). I'd recommand the hostel for another stay.
