Barnacles Temple Bar Dublin Hostel

“Great location, good value, excellent staff!”


5 of 5 stars, Reviewed August 23, 2014
I had one night in Dublin and chose to stay at Barnacles because I stayed there once several years ago and was familiar with the area. The location is great-just steps away from countless shops, bars, cafes, public transit, the Airlink Express bus stop, and the Liffey River. The staff are also very nice and helpful. The lounge space is also really nice with good wifi connection. It can be quiet or more social depending on your roommates and what you’re looking for out of your stay. Their long term luggage storage is also a bargain! Great value for the money!

“Spectacular Staff and Location is fantastic”

I stayed in Barnacles Hostel Temple Bar in May. I want to apologize for my delay in this review. I have stayed in all kinds of hotels from first class, budget, high end and now hostel is in my list. I can say that its location is amazing close to temple bar (a step away). and surrounded by great pubs and restaurants. The rooms are clean and I stayed in the first room of the first floor which has its own bathroom to share with five other individuals. I got to say I had great roommates where we were all around the same age and got a long well. Now to staff I cant thank them enough for being kind and helpful especially when I couldn’t get the shower on. Also a great thing this hostel has is the luggage lucker under your bed its a wonderful idea and you can utilize this with your own lock and promise you that it will be difficult for anyone to try and get in it.

As a worker in the tourism industry I highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in a great centralized area with wonderful staff.

When I return to Dublin I know where I will be staying!

Barnacles Galway Hostel

“Great evening”

I stayed at Quay Street House for one night because my sister left earlier than me. It’s really really in the middle of the city centre, couldn’t be better located and the staff is very friendly and printed my boarding card for free when I asked for some copy shop.
There are plug sockets for EVERY bed and the bathroom connects directy with the room.
I took a lonely sad nap recharching my iphone and then met some really cool irish guys in my room who introduced me to “Buckfast”. We went out for the whole night and finally I didn’t sleep at all, but I met great people!

I am a long term guest and have found the hostel to be very welcoming and comfortable, great sized kitchen and if you don’t feel like cooking there’s many great restaurants right beside it. The staff has been wonderful and the rooms are kept pretty clean. Great hostel!
