Although it was a very short stay it was really pleasant. I would like to stay again a little longer next time so I could take in the atmosphere better. The staff were so welcoming it gave a great start to the on arrival that you feel completely at ease setting a relaxed tone from the beginning. Thanks and look forward to coming again

Absolutely beautiful location, nice rooms, lovely staff. Word of warning though unless you plan on eating out come prepared - big kitchen to cook in but no stores nearby to purchase anything!

Thouroughly enjoyed my stay at Glendalough hostel, as did my 6 year old boy. Friendly helpful staff, great facilities and location hard to beat.

Pros: Good location Good kitchen Cons: Push button shower (you have to hold it down) Little atmosphere Overall a good hostel, but perhaps a little overpriced
