Property Description

RECENTLY RENOVATED with all ensuite rooms, Sky Backpackers offers affordable, comfortable and safe backpacker-style accommodation in the centre of Dublin in a unique musical setting.

The hostel is set in a former recording studio (Litton Lane Rehearsal & Recording Studios) and our clients included U2, Van Morrison, Sinead O' Connor, Def Leppard (Hysteria Album), and many more...

You will be staying in one of the most centrally located hostels in Dublin City just around the corner from the Liffey river, the Ha'Penny Bridge, O'Connell Street and a mere 1 minute walk from the Temple Bar Area.

Our aim at Sky Backpackers is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, while providing excellent value. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can offer advice and tips to make sure you don't miss any of the good stuff. We have cable TV, games, books and guest computers.

You'll walk in the footsteps of Irish greats U2, Van Morrison and Sinéad O’Connor at Sky Backpackers as we’re based in the former Litton Lane Rehearsal and Recording Studios! We make the most of our heritage with regular live music nights – maybe you'll witness the next Irish supergroup on their way up. See the Liffey River and the cast-iron Ha’Penny Bridge on our free daily walking tour, then come back for free food and drink events, like free stacked burgers, sangria or beer. Or just settle in for our DVD night.


From our central location you can switch between the bars and buskers of Temple Bar – just 1 minute away – and the leafy paths of St Stephen's Green (a 13-minute walk from us). For some Irish culture, head to the National Gallery, just 15 minutes' stroll from us. Getting here is simple. Take the Aircoach or Airport Express 747 from Dublin Airport to O’Connell Street (3 minutes away on foot) and you’ll be here in 33 minutes. From Connolly railway station, we’re a 13-minute stroll.

Rooms and Dorms

No need to wander the halls in your pyjamas – our mixed and female-only dorms are all en-suite! Free linen is included in your booking – just remember to bring your towel. We have private rooms with their own bathrooms, too. Out touring the pubs for the day? Store your backpack in your locker.

Extras and activities

After a day at Dublin Castle, our common lounge (The Old Rehearsal Studio) is the perfect spot to play board games with other guests (or start a new band!). We've also got a communal kitchen with a washing machine so you can cook and do your laundry at the same time – bonus! Feeling like some quiet time? Use our free Wi-Fi, make for the book exchange or study your free city map. If you think you've ticked off all the sites, drop by our tour desk to make plans further afield.

    Sky Backpackers was in the perfect location! Beds had outlets and lights individually and under-bed lockers were available. The hostel entrance is down an alley right off a main road with easy access to everything you could want. We loved it!

    The hostel was clean and easy to find. The bunks are sturdy with built in over head power and lights. The shower had great pressure and the bathroom was clean. Storage is provided by under-bed cages and towels and locks are available with a small deposit. My only gripe would be the fact I had to book two days as it was NYE. The staff are amazing ! Always smiling and easy to talk to. ASK FOR THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS!!! The food And bars they said visit were amazing !

    Amazing hostel. Very pristine. The location is great. Lots of free daily events. Although I am giving a perfect score, there were a lot of larger families staying here during Christmas. There were a lot of older folk and at least 1 child. Nothing wrong with this, but it definitely killed the "backpackers" vibe. Perhaps it's different during the summer, hence the perfect score. Still, I met a tonne of cool people.

    Loved this hostel! Would definitely stay here again. Only one thing that I wasn’t happy with, specifically asked for a girls dorm, which was fine, however a male, who I presumed was the cleaner but it was unclear as he did not announce himself, came into the room at 6am while everyone was sleeping to clean/check the bathroom. Seems a bit strange to me. Overall hostel was great.

    Wonderful, clean, comfortable place. Nice living room lounge area and kitchen. Staff were great. Only problem: the extremely loud cover band playing at the bar across the street until the wee hours. If any soundproofing can be done, it should be!
