    I never really give reviews about places I visit online, but the hostel was one of the nicest and friendly one I have been to. The place was very clean, showers were amazing :) and the staff were very friendly and great to chat to. Would really recommend if you are staying in Dublin and dont want to pay the Dublin prices and travel the extra 20 mins to stay here. If I'm up that side of the country again , I will definitely be staying again.

    I know that my ratings may make it seem like it shouldn't be that good, but this is honestly my favorite hostel that I have stayed at. I loved the sense of community that was there and the staff was very helpful in giving suggestions of how to spend my few days there. My only complaint is that the bed I was on, I could feel the springs through the padding on top. Other than that, I would 10/10 recommend. It's also only about an hour by bus north of Dublin. Newgrange is a must see as well.

    Amazing hostel with a fun, easy going staff and atmosphere. Great place to chill or base exploration of the Boyne valley from, or probably a bit of both. Easy to find from the bus station (literally straight shot down the road) with plenty of things right nearby. Will definitely stay again when I'm back in Drogheda

    Nice place, and definetly recommend. Negative points: no lock on room door, and no locker for big luggage. Our room had windows on the garden where people smoke so it smelled like cigarettes a lot inside the room and we'd have some smoke coming in if the windows were open. I guess most people wouldn't mind though... Positive points: Real good service, best showers and bathrooms we had during our whole trip. Really clean !

    The rooms were clean, the staff really friendly, location is also great. The dormitory were big however, not really noise isolated. The design of the house make it really atypical and an interesting experience.
