“APARTMENT - a lovely stay! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I went to Dublin for a week in July with my family and I chose the "Apartment for 3 people". There was a double bedroom and a bed-sofa in the living room. It is really cosy and quiet as the description, because it has the view on the private garden, so you don't have noises in the night. It is situated at the 2nd floor and there is the lift. I found the apartment very clean and well equipped. There was everything I need to have a perfect stay. It's also perfectly located: just 1 minute walk from O' connell street and the Temple Bar and in few steps you can reach Grafton Street and all the others attractions! If I return to Dublin I will choose this apartment or another solution at the Sky Backpackers - The Liffey because receptionists are very kind and polite (they show us how to open the door, the called a taxi for us because we had to leave in the night) and the position of the hostel is great! I recommend it!

The location is within walking distance to Temple Bar. Very decent breakfast compared to other hostels in the area. The staff is extremely friendly - great atmosphere with events each night we were there. The rooms were clean and more spacious than other hostels we stayed in. The only downside was it is located next to a pub that has loud music late into the night. If you can sleep through noise, then it shouldn't be a problem! Overall we had a great stay and would stay again if in Dublin.

I had managed to get a ticket to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and wanted somewhere cheap and central to spend the night. I saw Sky Backpackers and booked my bed. I received excellent service on arrival and everyone was good fun and really helpful.

The room was clean (carpets were stained) and the beds comfy. What most impressed me was that the full bin at midnight had been removed by 7 the next morning. The bathroom was really clean and smelled clean too!

Breakfast in the morning was substantial and tea/coffee/choc/squash and cereal/toast were provided. Next time I head to Dublin I will reserve a bed at Sky Backpackers!

The staff were quite friendly and they made good effort to make sure the place was clean. Internet connection was good. Only problem was the noise next door - but they can't be expected to fix that. Good value for money.

Stayed here for the RHCP concert and impressed. Cheap accommodation, friendly staff, superb location too as we were in walking distance of the Guinness storehouse, croke park and pubs. Couldn't ask for more with breakfast provided, wifi and sofas too chill out on I would definitely stay again

The staff here were really friendly and make it the most fun. we stayed 5 nights and were offered brownies, sangria, beer and different musicians in the lobby for our entertainment. The shared kitchen is also kept very clean and this is helped by the cooperative residents! The shared bathrooms are locker room style but the key access makes it feel more private/safe. the fatal flaw was definitely that the rooms are horribly loud. from the start there is a bar with live music outside the window but after that the walls seem to stop no noise from the neighbours: including the incredibly creaky floors!
