It was a great hostel- super central and with good common areas. However watch the price- it randomly jumped like 6 euros from a tuesday to a wednesday!


Temple bar area puta you are within walking distance of everything. Staff was super friendly. Let you leave bags before/after checkin/out. Great deals on hop on-hop off tour and definitely worth the money. All amenities for sale or rent at desk- adaptors, towels, toiletries. Only downside was no wifi in the bedrooms! You could use it in the common areas so you got to meet fellow guests. Overall great stay! I highly recommend it for an overnight layover or on holiday. Do the hostel pub crawl!!

This is really great place to stay. I enjoy my trip.


Loved this hostel!!! We had such a great time during our stay. The staff was awesome and recommended great places to go to eat/drink. The private room was very clean. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay at Barnacles and hope to return soon!


You won't go wrong with Barbacles Hostel, either in Dublin or in Galway. We spent our nights in both hostels. They were just simply make you feel home. So comfortable and couldn't ask for more. Recommend to every travelers!


Small rooms with even smaller bathrooms.


Perfect Hostel, highly recommended. Will definitely be back!!!


Unbeatable location right in the heart of Temple Bar. The staff were friendly and helpful. We received a free room upgrade on arrival. Good breakfast and very clean showers etc!


Good place to stay. If you're going to party lots, stay here. If you value your sleep, don't stay here because it's in the heart of temple bar. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. Wifi connection is poor. Will defs stay here again!


Not much point paying for late check out when the cleaners repeatedly came in and one point started cleaning up. Otherwise great place, great location, good price

Staff was so gentil that kind of mad my trip. Nice atmosphere and a perfect location. The bedrooms are a little small, but it is safe. The onyl bad thing are people that are living there, they are wide, but nothing you can't ignore. I would come back.


The Location is perfect. Unfortunately our double room was extremly smelly! breakfast was poor! If you only need a place to sleep it´s good.
