My subsequent blissful slumber was shattered by a bin lorry collecting rubbish at some ungodly hour though. Also one or two hostel guests tried our dorm door at various points during the night but that was...

We stayed for one night (Sunday evening)...having stayed at Gogarty hostel the last time I was in ireland and not sleeping due to noise i wanted to find something a little quieter. This hostel was much better for noise, whether that was because it was a Sunday night in November and not such a touristy time or just better insulation!...

I have stayed here a total of 3 times now and each time enjoyed it. Great location and such a lovely place to stay for a ideal price.

The hostel location is super good in the middle of the tample bar. The staff was nice as gave us lots of information. The carpet in the room looks dirty and smell bad, the door of the shower didn't close and everything gets wet, the skylights in the room didn't close properly so noise and cold enter in the room....

The staff is great! They are friendly and helpful.. The hostel is in a great location, right in the thick of things so it can be pretty loud! Easy to get to and from airport using public transportation. Take bus 747 to Temple Bar stop (ask the driver...it's about the 9th or 10th stop. Cross the street and turn left....

Well located and right in the centre of things at Temple Bar. Rooms were excellent and clean, and the free breakfast was brill, it was definitely needed after a few pints of Guinness the night before!

I stayed there twice, and I was never disappointed. That's a hostel so of course you cannot expect a 4-star hotel. Yet, its central position makes up for comfort and space. When you read 'Temple Bar' is because it really is next to Temple Bar! Very comfortable bed in a double room and staff is super. Also, I had to...

I was only staying in this hostel for 2 nights, but it was everything i expected. The location is amazing (it couldn't get any better), the staff is really nice and helpful, great security is provided (just remember to bring your own lock for the cabins underneath the beds) and the breakfast/ kitchen area is amazing. The rooms are small...
