Fantastic hostel from check in to check out and very affordable if booked in advance. The lady who checked us in was lovely and gave us lots of great advice about the city and what to do. We stayed in one of the private rooms- very clean and the shower was great! They had good facilities and a nice big... More

Everything was amazing. Clean and organized rooms, respectful guests, comfortable beds, wonderful kitchen... Friendly and excellent receptionist Aoife, you have. :) If you travel to Dublin or need to find a place to stay there, solution is so easy : check in at Sky Backpakkers.

Great location, right in the centre of the action (just off O'Connell street... and it's right next to a little footbridge over to temple bar, although we personally avoided the temple bar area as it's so expensive). And yes it is fairly noisy at night, but only because of the excellent bar next door that has live music every night...... More

Really great hostel in great location and so reasonable! Everywhere was lovely and clean, particularly the en-suite bathrooms. Very impressive for a hostel in such an expensive city. Would definitely recommend!

Had an amazingly comfy, clean and cute room and at a great price, even more so considering it is central Dublin. Good laundry facilities, also at great price. Really nice environment and friendly staff and so were the other travellers! Shame about the noise. Because of the noise throughout the night, I couldn't stay there again or recommend, which is...

I really wish to give a better feedback for this hostel, but we slept there 3 nights and we had so little sleep because there is a night club somewhere near and it felt like the party was inside our room. The windows made no difference. The location is perfect and the infrastructure is really good. The beds are comfortable... More

Staff was there 24/7 and was incredibly helpful and gave honest advice about things to do. Kitchen area and common areas are great for hanging out and meeting other visitors. The room was clean and well maintained.

The rooms are really nice and clean. They have free wine and cheese every night which was great. Its right next to the main street and about 5 minutes from Temple Bar and Trinity College. Really easy to get to from the airport - the bus drops you off a few minutes from the hostel.

This was the perfect place to stay. The location, room and staff could not be beat. The hostel was in easy walking distance from all of the major sites in Dublin. We had a double room which was a good size, the bathroom was clean and there wasn't too much noise so sleeping was not a problem. The staff also... More

This place was a great choice. The location couldn't have been better as we were a short walk across the bridge to the Temple Bar area and all the key sights we wanted to see. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and comfortable. We got a twin room. The only downside was that it was... More
