Our hostel offers affordable, central, clean and fun accommodation in the best location in the city! Not only are we budget-friendly but our hostel is part of the famous Oliver St John Gogarty's Irish Bar - the only hostel in Ireland to have a bar on-site!

If you feel peckish, Gogarty's pub serve traditional Irish meals all washed down with the best Guinness in town! Live music is played daily so hostel guests will be entertained from dawn until dusk!

All our rooms and dorms are ensuite; we also have a fully-equipped kitchen with a dining area so you are free to prepare your own meals each day. We like to make this a home-from-home so we offer free continental breakfast, free tea and coffee all day, great common areas, laundry facilities and all the basics for hire, not to mention a 24-hour reception and no curfew!

Most tourist sites are within walking distance and we offer discounted tickets to some local attractions. Discounted car parking is also available at Fleet Street Car Park!

Temple Bar itself is a network of narrow cobbled 18th-century streets between the River Liffey and Dame Street with Oliver St John Gogarty's right in the centre. Gogarty's consists of three bars and has a restaurant on the top floor, so as soon as you set foot outside the door of the hostel you can immediately feel and hear the electric buzz that is Temple Bar.

    I stayed there over some of the Christmas/ New Year holiday period, the place was lively, as one might expect and seek out. Overall I found everything fine and submerged in the spirit of the season. JA.

    Normally book another hostel when I visit Dublin but now I have found this smasher! Parking multi story next door with very reasonable parking rates (20% off when you stay here), walk out of the parking centre and the door beside you is the hostel. Check into the hostel and walk out the door the the place beside you is the pub! Lethal. I'll be back.

    This was a really great hostel. The locations was perfect and the complimentary soup was a brilliant touch. Breakfasts had a good selection of cerewls, salad, toast, boiled eggs and drinks. The pub below was a wonderful convince, too! The only things that could be improved on is the clearness of the kitchen/bathroom (small things, the over all look was clean) and there is a lack of enough plugs in the rooms.

    The location is amazing, right in the centre of nightlife and temple bar. Kitchen is quite big and has good facilities, however shuts at 9pm. The breakfast included is very high standard including fruit, cereal, breads and spreads. Room was very average, comfy mattress and spacious bathroom. However, there is only one bathroom for a 8-10 bed dorm which can get busy and hot water can run out quickly. There is an older demographic staying there. The noise of the pub below is not an issue!

    Some of the staff were great, asking me how my evening went and what not, others were rude and barely acknowledged a question I asked. The street noise was loud on the weekend! The breakfast was decent with hardboiled eggs and cereal and toast. Also complimentary, first come, first serve soup!

    Good points: kind staff, clean rooms and good location. Bad points: I was in a 12 beds room and in the entire room there were only 2 power plugs, it was a war to charge my cellphone and if I got to do it, I still needed to leave it on the other side of the room. There was only one bathroom for all the 12 people, it was a war to take a shower in the evening before leaving for the night.

    Overall my stay was ok. Checking in and out went easily and the location is absolutely great, especially if you like to go out in Temple Bar area. However, the bathrooms were not clean and there was only 1 shower for 10 people. The room was also very noisy (both because of the nightlife outside as well as guests coming home loudly at night). The cages where you can store your luggage in squeak super loudly! So don't forget your best earplugs... The breakfast was mediocre but OK for a hostel.

    Hostel wasn’t too bad until checkout, a couple of hours after leaving the hostel I received an email staying payment was being taken for a damaged mattress in our room. The room was a 6 person dorm and no damage had been made. When contacting the staff at the hostel they wasn’t great and it felt very much like the hostel was trying it on....payment was taken without permission and I had to go through my bank to dispute. Hostel is ok, location is great...staff a bit rubbish.
