Along with 50 other students from my study association, we stayed in Sky Backpackers during our time in Dublin (7 days). The hostel is really excellent! The rooms are nice and clean, the showers are big and warm, the kitchen is great and the hostel overal is very enjoyable. My fellow study mates also found the hostel really great, everything... More

Excellent location near O'Connel Street, just some metres from the river. Walking distance from Trinity College and Temple Bar, definitely a place to stay if coming back to Dublin. We rent a private double room with private bathroom and it was enough for the 2 nights we stayed, at an average of 25 euros per person per night. No elevators... More

The hostel is very close to the pedestrian area of Temple Bar and to O'Connell street but it is located in a secondary row, so you can sleep well. The place is full of history (being the ex Litton Lane recording studios!) and nicely renewed, the common areas were clean as well as the rooms were, the staff was kind... More

Great location and helpful staff. Rooms are very clean and best of all unlike other Dublin hostels the wifi actually works and the plugs are situated next to EVERY bed!. Breakfast was also a lot better than most other hostels. Will stay again

Great location, close to everything. Staff were helpful with everything from storing our luggage, giving us directions, and renting out towels to be used during our stay. We had a free pasta dinner on the second night which was very good. Much cleaner than anything else I experienced in hostels while in Ireland, and much more bright and modern as... More

I stayed at the Sky Backpackers in July of 2013 and after the experience I had, I'd not be coming back. I decided to stay at this hostel because of the price, as I was staying for a 2 week period while working on a research project in Dublin for my university. You couldn't beat the location and a lot... More

& the staff are really friendly & nice. Right on the HUB of O’Connell bridge but tucked back on a quiet side street.. a hop-skip & a jump into the Liffey River & by the Happin’Bridge Northside from Temple Bar. The building is a historic atmospheric one. Formally the home of Litton lane recording studios a famous place for Irish... More

I stayed in this hostel while having a conference in Dublin. You can walk easily to the Dublin Conference Centre in about 10 min. I was staying in a 6-bed-dorm which had a nice and very clean bathroom with a great shower. The common room offers a lot of space to relax and free WiFi is included in the whole... More
