Barnacles Temple Bar House

I was very happy with this Hostel and would recommend it without question

My only problem was that as i had arrived a little later than "cleaning hours" the bathroom had been destroyed by the other guests and tiptoeing around the mess was a bit aggravating.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I was very happy with this Hostel and would recommend it without question

My only problem was that as i had arrived a little later than "cleaning hours" the bathroom had been destroyed by the other guests and tiptoeing around the mess was a bit aggravating.

Also the show appeared not to be serviced regularly and the sink was leaking.

Then again for 10euro for the night, it was perfect - the beds were comfortable and warm and everyone was cheerful!
