Smallest hostel room ever, but met great people and had an awesome time. Super fun bar just below. One of my favorite Irish experiences! Mostly paying for the location on this one. For just the room and facilities, should be cheaper.

Location was really good as its right on in temple bar area so its close to everything. If you plan to go out then this is a good place to stay. Room also had an ensuite which was good. Only things wrong where that the check in is abit later than other places ive stayed 2.30pm although they let you leave your bags with them and also from about 7am there was kegs being moved around outside our window (as the hostel part of a bar and restaraunt) which was super noisy and woke the whole room up.

The hostel house rules said no drinking in the hostel. Well, there certainly was drinking and very loud partying untill the wee hours of the morning. As virtually no sleep could be had due to the yelling and screeching of the drunks. Would have been nice if they could have taken their party to a pub, after all theres numerous ones near bye. We travelled all this way to see the sights, so a good nights sleep is always nice to have, in order to walk the 15-20 km a day to see all the beauty here.

I thought it was a fun place to stay the staff were very friendly and helpful! However, it could have been a little bit cleaner. The kitchen was kind of gross that's the only thing I could really complain about. The atmosphere was awesome and location was right in temple bar which is kind of touristy so if you don't want tourist don't stay here.

The position is super: it is in the very city center and prices are reasonable. Breakfast is nice (salad, cheese, cereals, bread and marmalade, fruits). On the other side it was not very clean and the kitchen closes at 21:00 (if you are cold and willing for a hot cup of tea you cannot have). Staff was not very friendly, but anyway normal. Rooms are nice, lockers consists actually of a case under the bed, but it was ok. VALUE FOR MONEY FOR ITS POSITION AND PRICE.

The hostel was perfect for location. It is right in the middle of Temple Bar so great fr going to the pub at night. All the main attractions are in walking distance and the tram is also close if you want to go to the zoo. The hostel was clean and each dorm had its own bathroom. Would definitely stay again!

We had a fantastic stay at Gogarty's. It's right in the heart of Temple Bar and great if you intend to enjoy the night-life and the pubs. It was clean, safe and very accommodating.

The locker baskets under the beds are very squeaky. It makes it difficult to keep quiet while others are sleeping.

Very nice stay! Suggestion... it would be nice that you could have some staff that could speak other languages like spanish in order to comunicate better with your spanish speaker guests.
