It is an ideal location for hillwalkers, lovers of the outdoors and activity-seekers, and makes a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

    Nice spot with incredible view. Could opt to not pay for breakfast if desired. No spot to lock up valuables or bags. Wifi in common spaces but not in bedrooms.

    beautiful setting, right on the Wicklow way walk. Limited mini shop. It would be nice to have more products as nearest shop is 5 km each way.. (Too far to walk after a 20-30km hike.) They do let you know in advance though to bring what you need.

    Excellent hostel and very friendly staff. My only quibble is that the website said our room had an en suite bathroom and in fact it was a shared bathroom.

    Stayed here to do a section hike to glendalough. It was a the perfect location. I enjoyed spending the evening sitting on the front lawn looking up at the mountains. The hostel was fairly empty, I only shared my dorm room with one other guest.

    I had a pleasant stay. I would recommend this for anyone doing hiking or cycling or even just sightseeing for the Wicklow Mountains area. I was doing the half Ironman in Dun laoghaire and found it ideal for me.

    The hostel was lovely, location amazing, the shower however did not work despite having paid for an ensuite room. We had to use the public showers with no refund due. Shame because otherwise lovely but I do not believe the shower was working prior to our arrival and as such should not have been sold as an ensuite. Poor recompense!!!
