The whole purpose for booking here was to find a cheap place in a good location whilst in town to watch rugby. It suited us down to the ground. Yes...it isn't a hotel so there are things one might expect that aren't perfect. The one room key thing is a joke! However, for a cheap price and right in the...

This place is perfect if you're looking for a cheap room in a prime location. The music was brilliant and the atmosphere was fantastic. Breakfast was good, and loved that they provided tea and coffee all day. Just what we needed after long trips around the city all day. There were a few minor issues but it wasn't really anything...

Would definitely to recommend to anybody wanting a cheap but cheerful place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was more than was expected, as was the free tea/coffee throughout the day. Bedroom was very clean and no complaints to be had. Free Wifi. The location couldn't really have been any better. Only criticism is...

Gogartys hostel may be a bit tired looking and not the cleanest hostel in the world, but the prices and great and the location can't be beaten. Especially if you are looking for lots of bars and live music. The hostel is located right in the middle of Temple Bar surrounded my bars. We stayed in a 4 bed private...

We booked for 4 nights 2 beds in the 4 bed Dorm and checked out after the 1st night. We stayed in many Hostels around the world but never had to deal with things like just 1 key per Room - especially for a Dormitory - or that the staff lets an old guy, totally drunk and without any luggage...

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...
