    I was suprised as it was my 1st time staying in a hostel and didn’t expect much for the price that i was paying. I couldnt ask for anything more, clean spacious room, excellent kitchen facility and dining area. I would definitely recommend and would not hesitate to book again.

    Great place to stay, worth noting they have school trips in the week so it gets very busy especially in the kitchen and the common areas.

    Hands down the most fantastic location in the world, 15/20 mn walk from Glendalough Upper Lake which makes it the best if you're going there without a car. Staff super nice and helpful, all well-organised with self-catering kitchen and basic food supplies available considering the nearest shop isn't the most exciting hike around. Not the cleanest hostel I have been to, but then again with hikers going in and out throughout the day I suppose there's only so much that could be done about it.

    Incredible location and impressive building. The staff is helpful, there is a social atmosphere and the kitchen is large and well furnished. There is not much else in Glendalough, but a small shop and a really good restaurant (Wicklow Heather) can be found a 25 minutes walk away in Laragh.

    We booked the private room with en suite. The room wasn’t very clean, someone had been to the toilet and not flushed! The bedding was apply your own. Seemed very budget for a high price tag of €110 that night. Great location though of course

    Honestly worst hostel I’ve stayed in ireland. The toilet in the dorm would not flush, NO SOAP TO WASH HANDS (in corona time.... COME ON), the wifi did not reach in the room so you had to be in common areas to get it, the matress was so hard like sleeping on floor... nothing met my expectations. Also the atmosphere.... a HUGE 25 rooms place, nobody speaking to each other so not your tipical friendly hostel experience. HOWEVER, positive side is location, right next to Glendalough visitor center.
