Great hostel with friendly staff. The rooms are nice and clean with usb plug and light above each bed. The bathrooms are ensuite to the room. Plenty of space for bags with an underbed locker and floor space. 50m down an ally off the main street so queit but great location 1min walk from O'Connell street. Really good communal facilities. Only negative was room get quite hot in the middle of summer with 6 ppl in the room.

Picked this place for a long weekend visit with a mate. Room was compact, but with everything necessary. Very clean, good shower. Staff friendly. Location excellent, perhaps a little loud for sensitive sleepers (I'm not one!). Would certainly stay again. Also easy to reach by bus from the airport in about 30 mins for 7€.

I stayed here June/July 2017. I was travelling on my own and was perfect for a solo traveller. Great location to bus stop for airport and so close to all the action and bars in Dublin. Every evening they had either free drinks or food and guests and staff got together and went out to pub/bar crawl. Staff were really great and felt more like other guests than staff which was really nice but had all the info for the best trips and things to do. Breakfast was great in the morning. Room and en suite was really clean and tidy and great, I stayed in a mixed dorm as I wasn't bothered as to who I was sharing with but was great they have an option for Families and all female rooms. Everything was brilliant from cost to accommodation to staff. Would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling and needing a place to stay.

I had a really great stay at Sky Backpackers hostel. The staff is really nice and helpful all the time and they have information about a lot of great stuff to do in Dublin, cool daytrips included. I stayed in 6- female - dorm and was surprised about the size, the room wasn't too small at all. The bathrooms are cleaned daily. Please remember to bring a lock if you want to lock your things up. They offer different free things every evening like wine & cheese, or even Burgers. And you can also get free towels, you have to pay 5€ as a deposit, but you'll get that money back afterwards. Only bad point: the matress was an old one, with metal springs, not nice sleeping on it. So if you aren't just looking for a place to sleep but also for getting in touch with new people feel a bit of Dublin's vibe, then really choose this hostel ;)

This place was a good pick for a solo traveler like me to stay while I was in Dublin. They had a lot of activities to do and good vibes throughout the hostel. My only complaint is that while I was there they ran out of hot water and I had to take a very cold shower. In their defense, there was major construction going on that caused this. I would recommend this place.

Stayed here for a few days mid week, easy to get to from the airport and is central to all the action in Dublin. Upon arrival staff were really friendly but didn't really explain anything when we came in, so we had to find out a fair bit on our own!The rooms are nice, clean and tidy and for a hostel offered some great amenities in the room. The hostel is secure and I felt fine going out in the evening. Breakfast was an issue however, we'd already paid for breakfast but we hadn't been added to the list and since no one explained to us what we needed to do at breakfast time we assumed we just went into the kitchen and helped ourselves. We were met with attitude from a member of the team but he didn't speak very good English so he found it very hard to understand me. We eventually got to the bottom of the problem and had breakfast - I would recommend going elsewhere for breakfast if I'm honest and the food isn't of good quality nor is the selection any good. Before coming back to Dublin I would look at other accommodation options however the location of this hostel would keep it a keen favorite for me.

Only my 2nd time in a hostel. Stayed in a 4 person room was clean with private bath. really cool place in great location. Staff really friendly. Was an old recording studio U2 and others recorded all the hits in. Really clean, Cool vibe environment!!!

Had no issues staying here. Rooms were decently sized, everything was clean, staff were friendly. As others noted, awesome location to begin your day in Dublin. I really liked this place. The fellow travelers seemed nice as well.

Stayed here 3 nights while travelling around Dublin. Hostel is centrally located to pretty much every major attraction in Dublin. Rooms, common room and kitchen were really clean and beds made everyday. All beds had a power point, USB port and light. The staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting what to do. However the beds could be more comfortable. However, The mattress and pillow were really thin and not great for a good nights sleep. Overall, I'd stay here again though.

This has to be the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Everything from the dorms to the kitchen were squeaky clean each day. Reception was friendly and had no problem printing my boarding pass for me. Book direct through their website so you get breakfast free instead of having to pay 3 euros each morning. It's a little pricey for a hostel though. I understand Dublin is expensive, but I don't think a lot of backpackers could afford to stay here if they are on too tight a budget. There were also wifi issues for 2 days, which weren't fixed by the time I checked out, so I had to leave my room and find a store with free wifi in order to check in to my flight. The location is unbeatable though. I loved being steps away from the Liffey and O'Connell St. I could get everywhere I needed to go on foot. This hostel also attracts a nice crowd of guests. Overall I would stay here again next time I'm in Dublin
