I feel so bad giving only 3 out of 5, as the location was fantastic, the staff were great and it was spotlessly clean!! BUT... We are party animals and love to stay out and party, but even we found it unbearably noisy. The music outside sounds like it's in your own room and you can hear every step of... More

Paul, the manager, is excellent. The staff is friendly. The hostel location is unbeatable. A block away from an airporter bus stop. Grocery store and Temple Bar area across the river (a footbridge away). I felt safe walking home at 3:00 am. The kitchen is large and well laid out – best hostel kitchen I’ve ever used - and it's...

This is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in. The kitchen is spectacular though I didn't get to use it. And the rooms are a good size with comfy beds. It's also super convenient to get to Temple Bar without the rowdiness. And the staff were happy to offer recommendations and advice when I asked

It's an hostel, a simple hostel, very well placed, HORRIBLE WC's, rooms very old and not so isolated. Cleaning is ok. Good Climatization, nice sitting room and nice staff. Price is excellent , location is excellent, nothing moro to say here

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private double and we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and the bathroom. It is a very modern hostel in the heart of Dublin - super close to everything, including a tram stop a minute walk away, and just across the river from Temple Bar. Of course it gets a... More

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

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...
