    Great central location to Temple Bar and historic Dublin. Good nightlife options nearby and less than half a mile to nearby historical sites. The hostel had events every night and I was happy that the night I arrived was free Sangria night (I needed a drink after traveling all day). They also provided resources for walking tours and a super fun pub crawl that I ended up going on with some mates and what seemed like the rest of Dublin's young adult hostel population. V fun. Would recommend.

    The nearby street could be quieter but other than that full marks across the board. You should bring good earplugs if you are hosteling either way.

    Sky Backpackers was great! The rooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable. The room had its own bathroom which was a nice perk. Everyone was super friendly, and the breakfast was great to grab in the morning. I would definitely recommend!

    I was nervous since next door there was a bar (which means drunk people being obnoxious & or/publicly urinatin) hosting a GAA game, but the combination of security features on the front door & surprisingly large double glazed window that can close at night made my nights sleep very restful. The mattress was a little meh; I like things a little softer than others might, but I was so tired I still slept well. I usually stay in temple bar, but this place is a great alternative for the airport!

    Didn't stay at the hostel for most of my stay but when I was there I did enjoy it. The private bathrooms are a high plus

    Not much atmosphere. Some staff were nice and helpful, others not so much. 6 bunk room with En-suite. bathroom wasn’t the cleanest. Bathroom door handle had issues. No other bathrooms on the floor to use so it may be hard to get ready if all your roommates are too. Good location though.
