Liked: Awesome location safe and secure. Loved it

Disliked: Couldn't get the window closed and it was really loud but that's just because we had a 4am flight and we're trying to sleep while everyone was enjoying the temple bar. Definitely NOT a deal breaker. Just some instructions on how to secure the skylight window or a latch on it would have been great.

Liked: Very centrally located, the included breakfast was very good and had a lot on offer. The offered free tour of the city was very interesting and presented many funny insider stories ;)

Disliked: There was a school class residing at the same time, which made the breakfast facilities very crowded.

Liked: Great location, easy to find. Even though right in the action, street noise was shut out with the windows closed and I slept really well. Power sockets for every bed. Staff pretty friendly and helpful. Breakfast standard and simple. Nice common areas.

Disliked: Cages under the beds are a bit annoying moving in and out and getting into. If someone is on the bottom bed it can also be difficult getting then out, which can be a bit awkward. There are a few hostel run events (free dinner on Monday, pub crawls), but could do with maybe a few other activities to help meet people.

Liked: Location was perfect - right in the centre of Temple Bar; in fact, the famous Temple Bar pub is on the same small street. I stayed in a six bed dorm which was clean and reasonably spacious. The reception staff were friendly and keen to help, they have plenty of information about all the different things to do not only in Dublin, but elsewhere in Ireland. The recommended pub crawl and free walking tour were excellent, so I would definitely check those out. The pub crawl is 12 euros but you get a wristband which then lets you go for free, so if you go more than once this works out well. The free breakfast was simple but had a reasonable choice of fruit, cereals, toast etc. to start your day. The kitchen was spacious and great to cook in, and there was also a separate common room with computers, a television with DVDs and games console, and a guitar, so plenty to do when hanging out in there. Would definitely stay at Barnacles again, and would recommend it to all my friends. :)

Disliked: Nothing!
