You can't beat this location in the downtown area next to Temple Bar and being above its own bar, but beyond that there are definitely nicer hostels you could find for the same price and still good location. Cons: - one key per room, so the people in my room had to keep the door open a crack at all...

The location of this hostel is really great, being in the middle of everything and having most of the attractions and pubs at a close walking distance. The bed was comfortable and clean. It is an ok place if you just wand to sleep there and not spend too much time inside. The staff was also alright, some people more...

Positives: - The location is absolutely perfect if you're only in Dublin for a few days. It's right in the heart of Dublin with easy access to tourist attractions and, being right in the middle of Temple Bar, there is fantastic nightlife. - The rooms and bathrooms were clean. - There's a free continental breakfast! - The staff were lovely...

This hostel is perfectly located, staff is nice and the rooms are clean. Though what I hate is that not every bed has their own power outlet. Also a big downside is the fact that every room only has one key and if you have to go back to your room, you have to knock on the door for someone...

Excellent location, but not very 'luxereous'. The accomodation is OK and you are in the 'hart' of Dublin in 2 minutes! I would reccomand this place if you are on a citytrip with friends. Just for 1 to 4 nights if you don't want to spent a lot of time on your room and going out for sightseeing or partying....

No Idea how this place got the star ratings but I would not recommend it to anyone. Firstly we booked the room for four 2 months prior to our arrival and yet when we came they said they did not have a four room and we had to be separated for the first night. Still not too sure why they...

I read dozens of reviews and they are not accurate at all. The rooms are not as great as most reviews state. The rooms are cold and the heaters release as much heat as about four or five candles. The wifi is strong only in a small area of the room. The bathrooms are freezing and there is no heat...

We had a group of 6 and we stayed in the Penthouse Apartments. The apartments are definitely more worn in than they look in the pictures, but they are fine. The only real issue I had was with a mold smell in one of the bathrooms, I had to keep the door shut or the smell was a bit overpowering....

I booked a penthouse at Gogarty's for two days. Overall the apartment was ok, although it needs a few minor adjustments. Positive: - great location in Temple Bar/Trinity College area - free welcome drink voucher + a free dvd of traditional Irish music upon arrival - very clean bed linen! - spacious rooms - Tesco store round the corner -...
