    Overall great experience, location was perfect, the rooms were kept clean, and not anyone can just walk in so you feel safe. Only advice I would say is to bring your own blanket for the beds are definitely used and kinda uncomfortable however if you use the provided comforter as a bed sheet it feels much better!

    Can't find any complaints about this hostel. It was conveniently centered to the Green Hop on/hop off bus stop - also the airlink express to and from the hotel. Close enough to the nightlife but not too loud. They allowed me to put my bags in a storage locker for free before my check in time which was greatly appreciated. The staff did a great job cleaning the rooms daily. Will definitely stay there again.

    Prime location.. only a few minutes walk from the Temple Bar area where there are a bunch of bars and restaurants. The common areas were nice and good for hanging out or looking up things to do while in Dublin. I would stay again.

    As a first time solo traveller, I wanted to ensure that where I stayed was close to all amenities and overall confortable. Sky backpackers was that for me! It made my entire way easier. The staff were super helpful finding me cheaper and easier ways to get around Dublin. They also suggested activities for me to do and offered to keep hold my luggage until check in (and even after check out - when I had a late flight). The rooms were clean, and the bed were surprisingly quite comfortable too!

    Room was excellent. Very nice, helpful staff. Great breakfast spread. Wasn’t the easiest to locate. Having to park a car overnight is a pain.

    A really great hostel with a nice breakfast. They have cool mini events at night (happy hour, free food). The only thing I wish this hostel had was more actual events run by the hostel. It's so close to being a really good social hostel, but there aren't any actual events to get groups of people from the hostel together.

    The hostel was in a great location - so close to the city. The staff was very helpful and were able to print our boarding passes & store our luggage. The rooms were a bit small, but not the worst.

    Had a great weekend at this Hostel. Only issue I had was the people were relatively older. I would recommend that if you’re traveling with a group of college friends do not stay here if you are looking to meet more young people. Other than that, this was a very safe and friendly atmosphere. I would also like to add that this is definitely not the “best party” hostel in Dublin because during the whole weekend my friends and I were the youngest people by at least 10 years.
