Hostelworld says:

Barnacles Temple Bar House has been with Hostelworld for over 10 years, and it's not too hard to see why. Their 'super nice, helpful and welcoming' and 'hard working' staff 'who go the extra mile' are frequently rated by our guests as one of the best features of the hostel, in the centre of the lively Temple Bar area. Their 24-hour reception and security means you're safe to enjoy Barnacles' free tours and pub crawls. We like that if you can't get to the post office on time, the staff can pop your postcards in the mail for you.

    It really is right in the middle of temple bar and is so easy to get around. There is key card access to enter the hostel and then again to enter the rooms. Each bed has a lockable cage for storage. Bathrooms are basic but clean. Good kitchen, although is locked at night/early morning, wasn't able to make myself food before a day trip. Staff were tremendously helpful with checking in, directions, and booking tours. Super friendly. Even had a free dinner and 1/2 price pub crawl while there!
