    I had a great stay and the most comfortable bed ever!! The hostel is a perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries (and phone) after a long day hiking. You can also leave your bags there before check-in or after checkout if you need. It is right next to the ancient monastery and very close to the visitor centre (with bus stop) as well.

    Staff are wonderful - the ladies at the desk were super sweet and helpful. Kind of annoying that Internet is only available in the lounge area, because with school groups staying it’s very loud and busy there. Very clean and quiet otherwise, and overall a nice, cheap place to stay in Glendalough

    The staff are always very kind and welcoming! I love the peacefulness of this place. The only issue is the lack of hot water in the showers. The staff can usually fix it for you, but if you wake up too early, there'll be no one to help with it and you'll be stuck with a cold shower. Other than that, this place is absolutely wonderful!

    Location-exceptional. Staff-helpful. Property-older, poorly maintained. Negatives were misinformation in the hostel advertisement- NO internet in rooms, NO towels , NO "restaurant" (breakfast for charge). Self-catering kitchen opens late, 8:30. No amenities that most hostels have- hot water was available but no tea, coffee or milk. Hostel isolated so would have been nice to have real food/ milk in vending not just snacks. Overall, acceptable, could be great with more attention.

    It’s the only hostel option if you are wanting to stay in Glendalough. It’s a short walk to a hotel with a restaurant and a good place if you want to hike. The facilities were fine, not horrible but a little run down. You can purchase breakfast which is nice. It is a youth hostel though so there were several school groups while I was there and not hr best atmosphere for solo travelers.

    The toilet was was not very clean (private room) it smelled really bad (maybe from the pipes or something) and the green light made the room bright all the time at night.

    Really expensive for what it is... no atmosphere, you have to do your bed by your own, only 2 cases for 6 in the room, no tv or music or games... the coffee machine doesn’t work well... fortunately, the averages are beautiful but we don’t recommend this hostel...
