“very friendly and happy irish stuff :)”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I've been recently to Dublin (great city) where I stayed for one night together with a friend at the Barnacles Hostel.
Really great Hostel. Exactly next to the famous Temple Bar and thus in the city center and very close to the station for the airport shuttle.
The stuff is very friendly and helpful. They suggested us for e.g. a great place to have a very good Irish dinner.
Also the hostel is very clean. We stayed in a 4 beds shared room with it's own bathroom.
The hostel has wifi and if u don't have a laptop/smartphone/tablet you get 15 min access to one of their PCs.

Great place :)

The Brancles Hostel is located in the very center of the city and it has a very pleasant atmosphere. The rooms are not big but they are well equipped with wardrobes and individual bed lamps to make it easy for more people to share the room! The bathrooms are also very clean and in good condition.
The staff is very friendly and fits very well in the overall picture of the city! The hostel is smokefree, but alcohol is no problem so you can drink on with your friends in the hostel :).
Great place if you are looking for a short stay for visiting and partying with friends .

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room with a double bed and a private bathroom. The bed was soft and the room was warm. We didn't encounter too much street noise at night up on the third floor. The Wi-fi signal is pretty weak outside of the common area. The hostel is secure. Everyone has to have a key card to enter. Loved being so close to everything. We had a great time and were very happy with the quality of the hostel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor are quieter.

If you are looking for a clean and secure hostel at the center of Dublin , Barnacles is definitely recommended. Quite clean hostel at the center of Temple Bar, where you can find many restaurants to eat, or pubs to drink and to listen to great Irish music.
