I didn't really spend much time at the hostel so hard to comment on atmosphere. But I found the staff very helpful. If you arrive before check in they'll let you have a shower and everything. Good breakfast, all the usual stuff as well as omelettes and smoothies! No real kitchen facilities, just a microwave and kettle.
Good hostel. Despite having the restaurant the self catering kitchen facilities were still very good. Clean and comfortable, nice indoor and outdoor seating. It's in a beautiful building in a beautiful area. Only downside is it being quite a way out of town, but it is walkable in 30-40 mins and the bus stops right outside.
Great hostel. Comfortable, clean, realxed but friendly atmosphere. Free laundry facilities available. And free speculoos biscuits with the tea and coffee!
A quirky place. Looking like it could use a fresh coat of paint and a bit of upkeep, especially upstairs throughout the rooms, but very comfortable and welcoming. Comfortable place to sit and relax downstairs with a fire place for warmth. The lady who runs it is pretty quirky but very friendly and helpful. Kitchen facilities good.
Great hostel. For such a big place, it still has a good atmosphere. Great common area, good kitchen facilities. Amazing location underneath the castle!
Great hostel. Nice, clean and comfortable. It was pretty quiet despite being summer, but enough people to hang out with and get to know, especially on the Saturday night. Location is great if walking the Wicklow Way or to explore the area on foot. It wasn't great for me lugging my months' worth of backpacking stuff from the bus stop, I recommend leaving some luggage behind in Dublin or somewhere if you're in the same boat as me (walk from Dublin even). Beautiful area, worth a visit!
Nice place, couldn't fault it. Lovely staff and good breakfast.
No real complaints, bar area a bit dim, but clean bathrooms and all. No real kitchen facilities but there's fair warning given about that. Pretty accessible by bus and tube, and close to some nice areas.
Good place but pricey.
