I ve stayed in this hostel a few times, and it felt like home, one has to go to the house across the road sometimes, to ring the bell and go get John, the owner, to check you in. In the old days it was much smaller and after a while you knew everyone and you bump into the owner... More

Cheap but not cheerful. We arrived to find the place in darkness. Eventually we found a note advising to visit the house opposite to gain entry. We booked via Booking.com which advised of a triple bed room, showing a sizeable bedroom in the photograph. What we actually got was a room with one single bed and two bunks with insufficent...

This is a large hostel, suitable for large groups. Luckily, no large groups were present during our stay, so it was very quiet and pleasant. It has an institutional feel, but very spacious and a huge kitchen. There were only a couple of other couples there, so totally private. We had double room with private bathroom and shower, for a...

Good situation to visit Glendalough and the Wicklow mountains with a car. Room noisy due to shared kitchen's proximity. Good for young travelers and backpakers !
