It's near from the Busaras bus stop. The owner is such a gentleman. We got a private room for two. To our surprise, our tiny room only had one double bed "floating" over it, in order to provide space for the luggage and seats. The bathroom was clean and the shower was great. If you want to go to Wicklow's National Park, the owner can drop you there in the morning and pick you up in the afternoon at €15 p/person. Breakfast not included. You have to pay around €3 daily.

We had a nice stay in the hostel, but there were a few crucial problems. First, our room had mold on the walls, and no matter how much you opened the window you could still smell it. One of the bunk beds in our room was very unstable and it was scary to get on the upper bed. The last problem was that there was no heating in the room and it was very cold there. The staff were very nice and there was a good atmosphere.

Nothing special to say about my stay at this hostel. It's a quite nice place. The only annoying thing for me, was that the places to park all around are not free. But everything was fine except this fact

I can't rave about this hostel enough. We had an amazing week here with the awesome staff and great little town of Wicklow. We were in the 14 bed mixed dorm and everyone was extremely friendly. There is great food for breakfast for cheap and a lot of common space. Wifi worked in the room and there were plenty of outlets everywhere. The hostel was a little hard to find, but it is in a great location in the town. You won't regret staying here.

I really enjoyed my stay at Captain Halpin's Hostel. The location and relaxed atmosphere was great plus the proximity to the seafront was an added bonus, all in all it was well chilled.

Our stay at the Captain Halpin's Hostel was only one night. The staff that greeted us was ok. I can't really say anything about the atmosphere because we didn't spend much time there. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The location was good-you could get around easily to restaurants, bars, etc. I can recommend the hostel.

The room was different to the pictures and it would have been nice to have a bit more in the room itself, as in a mirror etc. Otherwise it was decent for what I needed it to be, somewhere to sleep.

We stayed only one night at the Captain Halpin's Hostel. Our double room was functionally furnished with a bunk bed and two chairs. The bathroom with shower was clean but very small. Directly in front of Hostel has free parking. We felt very comfortable.
