I have already written this review but it seems to have been deleted by the hostel. Booked the Fownes Street apartment that this hostel owns, brought confirmation of payment and of booking to be told they don't own that property anymore and that I had to pay another 180 pound for another one of their apartments or pay to stay...

Built for quality convenience. Strategic location, very friendly staff, quality accommodations, comfortable, clean, attracts a fun crowd. We took the metro from the airport, conveniently dropped off our backpack at the hostel (they put your luggage aside and lock it up for you if you come before check in time), before walking everywhere that interested us in Dublin. Two of... More

We spent 3 nights in a twin room. The hostel is right in front of the Trinity College, so it's in the deep center of Dublin. There's always someone at tthe front desk, 24/7 and they are all very nice. The room was clean, but the beds were quite uncomfortable (the mattress' springs were completely gone). The door is not...

I stayed there for 3 nights. Its location is right in the center of the city which allows to go to all the local places walking per se Temple Bar, Grafton Street etc. They have pretty good internet access and offer breakfast at an affordable price of 3 euros. Further, the common room is comfortable and a good option to... More

We stayed in a room for 4 over the weekend. I have to admit the check in was the best I have ever had anywhere, super friendly and helpful. The room was facing the College Street which is busy and noisy at night, so it's good to have earplugs. The heater was off when we came, so it was a... More

The best thing about this hostel is it's location. Smack bang in the centre of Dublin close to Trinity College with the the vibrant and varied atmosphere of the night life on the Liffey within walking distance. A bus from the airport takes you right down O Connel Street over the Liffey and almost to the door of the hostel.... More

I had booked for Skybackpackers liffey but last minute was moved to this location because the sky was closed for renovations. I was very disappointed at first, and haven't ever stayed at sky so couldn't compare the two but this one did the job. This was the last leg of the trip for half of our group who were flying...
