    This hostel has a really really good location nearby to the main streetd and monuments The breakfast is poor with just few items to choose from. If you want to save money it is a good choice otherwise it is not the best hostels i have been. It has reasonable conditions for the price.

    We were only here for less than 8 hours and I'm glad we picked this location. Located in the Temple Bar area where we didn't have to go far to get a beer after we checked-in. The room was big enough to fit 3 bunk beds and we had our own bathroom. There was enough storage to put our backpacks away that so we didn't feel cramped. We left our windows cracked open a little bit during the night and with the pubs down below, it wasn't too bad. Breakfast was included but unfortunately we had to leave for the airport at 5:30AM so we didn't get a chance to enjoy breakfast. The front desk person ordered our cab for us so it was waiting for us outside in the morning. Wish we could have stayed a little longer to enjoy Dublin and have some more beer.

    We have an apartment here and it’s very spacious with a full kitchen and three bathrooms. It has a balcony and two bedrooms with two twin beds in each room so even if you had a couple kids in the living room, there will be plenty of room. Super convenient to everything with free Wi-Fi and it says free parking. Just coffee or tea all day long in the restaurant for free. Walking distance to everything!

    My first trip (solo) to Dublin, overnight stay in a hotel near to the centre was hard to find under €100, but I found this place eventually, the restaurant is above the bar and the rooms are above the restaurant. Yes the room was OK as was the toilet and shower (hot), 4 single bunk beds although I travelled alone, the only room I could get. So why 5 stars; location - perfect for a night or two out in the temple bar area, parking - multi storey car park just around the corner, overnight 18:00-09:00 is €9, food - excellent food and menu on site and reasonably priced, service - couldn't of been more helpful or friendly, live music - never been a fan of any sort of folk music, and the bar was packed. Noise levels are high, expect it to go on until about 02:00hrs mainly due to the fact you're in the heart of the Temple Bar area, but I still got to sleep. Certainly would visit again, an excellent steak, and quality wine.

    It’s what you expect when jn Ireland. A busy, noisy, yet cosy pub in a crowdy area of Dublin. Completed with live (traditional and modern) music, all-in all a great pub to visit when in Dublin! Service is quick and friendly.

    We stayed for 4 nights here, the rooms were clean and fresh smelling, lovely staff and overall and lovely stay, I don't tho k there was anything we could complain about from the place, we were right in the center of everything too so didnt need to travel far for the night life. I would definitely be coming back here again

    I should know better than to ask the hotel where to eat, it usually results in a mediocre and expensive meal. This was no exception. The food is OK, beef stew was tasty but meat was not tender as in other places where I have eaten his dish on my trip. Pork that said slow cooked, sounded like it would be tender but was very dry. Not a bad meal just not the exceptional meal my hotel suggested it was as I was expecting. It was quiet when we arrived, but as we were leaving seems like a tour bus must have dropped people off because a table of 40 people was seated as we were leaving. I also think 20 euros for a meal of stew was over priced.

    I stayed here twice in July, at the beginning and end of my Shamrocker tour. I arrived late and left early in the morning so I really only slept there but it did the job! The staff were really accommodating and helped with everything I needed!

    Stayed here for weekend with mates booked private room for four with bunk beds. Right in Temple Bar so very central. For a lads weekend it's ok bunk beds were ok and comfy bed clean, room small but again lads weekend so slept late and straight back out next day. The bathroom was dirty with hairs on floor I know it's a hostel but it should be clean. Shower didn't work but staff sorted straight away and we're helpful on reception. Would have given better score if was clean no excuse for dirty bathroom

    We were very excited to take our son to Dublin, Temple Bar. To stay private I booked a private room with bath for 4, although we were only 2 for one night and 3 for the two other nights. As you could hardly turn in that room I don't know how 4 strangers would be able to share the space. Only one person can move at any time through the tight space. Hardly any storage room, so all travel equipment lined up along the wall. One chair in the room, the bottom beds you cannot sit up on. I can live with that for a short period but it also wasn't as clean as I would have expected for this kind of money and there is no excuse for unclean rooms and bathrooms ever. The sheets had a few holes and somebody's insides must have released itself into the mattress above me which grossed me out immediately. We had nobody sleep in that bed (disgusting). The dust on the metal rails under the top bed, grime on the mirror, the mini desk/shelf and the bedframe made me suspect that the bathroom would also not really be clean but I didn't want to look too close. Not enough shelfstorage in the bathroom either for 4 users. It feels like quite the rip off. Reception looks a mess, breakfast has a problem to accommodate the onslaught of the many residents and is a disorganized access - not enough space. Just like the tiny reception area, the narrow entrance, the small elevator - it is all crammed. And my son had one! drink in the bar - a Rum & Coke for EUR 11.25 and he was done! Not even the luxury Castle Hotel on the north side of Dublin where we stayed towards the end of our trip, charged prices like that. There has to be rime and reason to prices. This was as unreasonable as it gets. Pretty much like the price for the tiny, not quite clean room too. We then refrained from using the bar or the restaurant. Who knows which ridiculousness we would have encountered for pricing. Gustavo at reception is a real gem. He knows the areas well and sends you to the right places. The other guy you draw a blank on. I haven't used Hostels in decades and this one didn't make me consider it for the future. It is in a star location and it felt safe - you are right dead center Dublin and you have easy access to bussing etc. but I would go elsewhere next time for sure. Dublin overall is quite the rip off for pricing and the world is just too pretty in a lot of places that I need to leave my cash there again.

    I tend to always right positive reviews and we had an amazing trip to Dublin and loved thr position of the accommodation. We stayed in a Penthouse Apartment and like most of Dublin it i of course not cheap. To be balanced positives from our stay were * Kitchen well stocked with ample crockery etc * Clean towels, plus dish cloths, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc * All bedding clean and without fault Factors to be aware of * Cant use both showers at the same time - notice up * No TV remote - need to pay £20 deposit at reception * In general it needed a deep clean - grease stains on walls, cupboard surfaces etc not cleaned in ages * One of the showers heads was wrong size for the fitting and neither had enough power to keep the girls with long hair happy * Due to location being shared with hostel on the same level, people often smoking near you at night and youngsters climbing on the roof drinking. * Receiption staff all friendly and helpful but the reception area is a mess and when you first arrive your heart drops at where you are staying We had a great time just want people to know what they are getting for their money.

    I stayed in St.John Gogarty's Hostel twice last week, for 3 days before going to Galway and for 1 night after. Each time we were in a private 4 beds room. The first room was pretty horrible, the bathroom was incredibly dirty and we found a maggot on the floor. The breakfast room was a dirty mess. The second room was no luxury but it was way cleaner which is what matters in a place like this I think. When ordering a room in a hostel you know you're not going to get any luxury but doesn't mean you have to end up in a garbage can. The staff is lovely and helpful though.

    Very friendly staff. Close to centre. Room 2meters by 2metes bunk bed. Breakfast milk....very basic... The pub has crazy drink prices. Dublin accommodation prices are disgustingly expensive. I will not be in a rush to return

    Tried to get in at first and they refused as there was too many of us. Then decided to send us up stairs where it was quieter. Then we went to the bar and to be charged €8 a pint is a disgrace. Don't no how anyway can charge that it just a rip off.

    This bar was a meeting place for myself and it turned out we stayed there the whole night...and that was on a Monday..great music both downstairs and up. The drinks are fairly priced and the atmosphere is fun, loud and friendly. Staff were great at serving quickly and also brought drinks to us when needed.

    the only thing i can recommend about Oliver Saint John Gogarty hostel is the location. everything is was terrible, room resembled a prison cell, ok, you get what you pay for, but the steel beds, not even a chair, the offer of a free breakfast, was basically cereal and tea/coffee, the noise was unreal all night, from the noise of numerous establishments drowning each other out, and once the bars closed it was the turn of homeless fighting up and down the street. the room was literally just the bed, the toilets were filthy, I'm a man of little standards but the floors definitely hadn't been cleaned in a month (the amount of fluff/dust on the floor was explanatory). Towels left from other guests. whole place just needed an over haul of basic standards

    This is a great place to stay if you are young and are simply looking for a bed to sleep in at night. Prices are very reasonable and beds are comfortable. Breakfast is plain and simple but really nice! Overall would highly recommend !

    Pretty basic, even for a hostel. Has kitchen facilities and free breakfast which is good. Tiny bathrooms and not very clean. Great location obviously, right in the heart of Temple Bar. Noise really was not that bad especially considering you are right above a pub. My biggest complaint would be that there are three power points in a 8 bed dorm? And they are in awkward locations like by someone else’s bed?
