its character, central position
Although rooms were basic as expected it would have been nice to have a chair in the room as there was nowhere to sit other than the bed which was a bunk
Great location at Dublin
Little Noise on Weekend....
Location, location, location
We booked a room for 4 (bunk beds) the room was to small for 4 , it was tight and there was no place to sit, as we were two mothers taking teenagers to a concert in the Olympia there was no space for them to put make up on , hair etc. you no what their like, the room was way to small, other than that it was perfect place. Staff was friendly, and the location was perfect
Location and staff are nice
Room of 10 people with only 1 toilet with shower is not enough. People use it all the time and get smelly all the room so you have to keep windows open and then you are frozen in the room.
Location, free CD etc. good common area
Noise from other rooms
Perfect location at Temple Bar, with the fantastic Gogarty's Bar next door! Very good Wifi, easy connection with various airport-buses, and super cheap!
Proximity to airport bus, polite staff, fun area, live music nightly
ALL doors slam so if you're on the first floor with the breakfast room you will be woken by traffic stomping past your room. Bathroom was not regularly checked for cleanliness, room incredibly cramped and Windows don't open to let in a little fresh air.
very close to busses to the airport, suitable for long and short stay
Generally a nice backpackers. The staff was friendly and some of them could give helpful advice. Also, the breakfast was yummy - I love fresh fruit!!! It was very central and loads of things were going on just around the corner.
There's only one key for all people in one room. If you are out and wanna get inside you either have to wake up your room-mates or you have to borrow the spare key, which you have to bring back to the reception immediately -- This also implies that anybody can walk into any room! Also, if you have problems to sleep when it's noisy - bring earplugs!!! Prices on weekends are simply too high.
4 of us booked into the 4 bed private room we had a great time and breakfast included excellent for the money and staff were very friendly
The location in the middle of temple bar is great. The staff was very nice and helpful.
Of course it is noisy in the middle of temple bar, that´s totally ok. I am even fine with drunk people coming home late and beeing loud. BUT it is not ok if other hostel guests piss at your door (all the mess ran into our room and soaked my bagpack) and knock on it all night and terrorize you till the early morning with shouting, swearing and throwing beer cans. I had to clean the mess on my own with some towels, the night recepionist was all alone and could not help (he didn´t even ask the rioters to stop the terror). The hostel needs security staff to keep the "normal" guests safe. We felt threatened and scared. The hostel agreed to refund the whole amount, I appreciate it, but nevertheless the whole stay was ruined. We switched to another place and had to pay a lot of money, because all the budget places were - of course- fully booked.
The young man at the front desk was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again.
The location, great value for the money, fair breakfast, coffee and tea all day long. Great staff especially Karolina,Silvia and Marcelo! Thank you guys for your service!
We got our rooms cleaned and trash emptied every day from Wednesday till Monday, but not in our last two days. Was a bit dissapointed to see cleaning was not happening on a daily basis or a standard but only when a certain employee was working.
until 2 a.m. :-)
Lovely location! Great bar, with great music and free half-pint. Nice common areas, such as library. Nice with coffee beeing served all day long, for free.
EXTREMELY NOISY!! (I don't mind some partying, but at 3-4 am, cleaning trolleys are beeing pulled along the cobbled road, making crazy amounts of noise! This would probably be a general problem of staying in the Temple Bar area, so wouldn't stay there again...) Breakfast was acceptable, but mainly jam and not much else.
The room, breakfast and location of the hostel was great.
The shower facility is really dirty and you have to pay for towels- some hostels offer rental towels.
Unhelpful staff Room not ready on time No towels with room No towels available to rent when needed Partying neighbors Very poor wifi Very badly run Not helpful with problems in room Mostly foreign staff. No Irish
The staff were helpful and polite I would visit Dublin again and stay at Gogartys as it was reasonably priced
Wifi only worked in some area of the hotel Pillows were like pancakes Window always got stuck and was hard to open
Centrally located, not too expensive, decent breakfast options.
Always loud, no matter what time of day. I slept with ear plugs and an eye mask and I could still hear the music from downstairs, which goes from 2:30 pm to 2:30am, a point of pride for Gogarty's. If you're looking for a quiet, restful place to sleep - don't stay in Temple Bar is the lesson. Gogarty's is no exception.
I liked that it is a safe place, people were nice and tried to help with your request. And most of all it is a clean please.
I loved our stay at the St.John Gogartys. Perfect! So close to everything, and the staff was really friendly!
Location was good. The price was good.
We weren't allowed check in two hours early even though it was requested a week before arrival. We had to pay €2 for a bath towel. They wouldn't store our bags the following day while we waited for our train.
Access to parking of vehicle. Walking distance to public transport. Close proximatey to entertainment and resttaurants.
In the middle of Temple Bar. Great location! Beds are fine. But overall, nothing special.
There's a lot of noise. The noise of Temple Bar...but hey..it's Temple Bar, the centre of Temple Bar, so no complaints about that. But the noise of the watertaps of the other rooms is terrible. When somebody uses a watertap, it's like somebody tries to break down a wall. The solution? A lot of Guinness ;)
