Hostelworld says:

Globetrotters/The Townhouse is in a Georgian building which is, as one Hostelworld user said, 'near the bus/train station and close enough from downtown and Temple Bar'. This hostel has been praised for having 'great atmosphere and character', 'thoughtful and lovely' decor and 'friendly, polite, helpful' staff. One of our guests said 'it has an overall charm that I have yet to experience in other hostels'.
