This place is pretty cool. The staff is very helpful. The common room was the liveliest I've seen. Every night there is a different special. Some days free beer, some days free sangria, etc. Very close to the main drag and a bridge away from Temple Bar. It is a bit down an alley, but, it's well lit and safe.

Everything was great: the hostel, the people working in it; location, the bedroom, the shower... ! There`s also a nice kitchen opened to guests for cooking their own meals, and there`s always some activity going on in the common places. I really recomend this place!

Great atmosphere, nicely decorated, friendly stuff and soft blankeys. What else is needed? So very close to all the must see places and nice places to eat at. Sometimes there was too loud cause of the music from a restraunt next to it, but when the window is closed it's totally fine.

This was my first hostel experience. Thanks for making it a positive one! I was only here for one night but I absolutely loved it! I arrived in the afternoon and shared the room with 5 other girls who were already there, but everything was very clean! The fact that there was a large mirror in the room was very... More

I only stayed here for two nights (after previously being in Dublin for 10 days at a different hostel) and it was awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better location, it was a block away from O'Connell street which has tons of shops and places to eat (very touristy), it was right across the river from Temple Bar District...

We were a young (26) couple backpacking and looking for a cheap place in Dublin. This hostel is definitely for the younger crowd that wants to stay up really light on their phones. Do not stay here if you want to either sleep or have a true hostel experience.

I stayed in a private twin room on the 3rd floor, the room was very clean and I was pleasantly surprised how nice the room was with a large bathroom and shower. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I stayed for one night so I didn't get to use the common room however it looked like a welcoming area.... More

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...

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
