I really enjoyed my stay at Sky Backpackers. The hostel was VERY clean and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The beds were great as each bed has their own charger and light. Sharing the bathroom with 6 other people in the monring was a bit annoying as there were no other toilettes on our floor to accomodate... More

The hostel localization is perfect, very central, just a couple of minutes from the O'Connel Street and Bridge. The staff is nice, the room was spacious and the bathroom was also ok. The breakfast is basic and costs 3 euros. There is a girl there preparing toasts and ensuring that nothing is missing. I believe that it was a bit... More

Travelling solo, I stayed at Sky Backpackers for 3 nights in June. It was a little difficult to find; tucked away down an alley, but once I'd found it once, I could navigate back to it no problem. No matter how many Guinness', the white bridge over the famous River Liffey always guided me home. I stayed in a 4... More

During my short stay at Sky Backpackers in Dublin, I had nothing short of an exceptional experience. My travel group consisted of four friends from school, and reserving a four bed private suite for our group, we were provided a private bathroom and private room. We did not catch breakfast which was a small cost of three euro in the... More

This hostel was tucked away in an alley off the main road which made it much quieter at night. Staff were all very helpful. Close to everything. We especially enjoyed the charging station attached to the bed so we could charge our phones via a usb cord rather than taking turns using our adapter. Would definitely stay again.

I booked via LateRooms.com (a tip: worth booking with the hostel themselves because I could have probably saved money, and also the number and email given was the wrong one so I had to look it up online). Decent little hostel, though as others have mentioned it was right next to a pub which could generate quite a bit of... More
