    This is what I look for in a hostel! The kitchen is big enough to cook, but the seating is small enough to encourage conversation amongst travelers. Lovely quirky charm that sets you up for an awesome stay in Drogheda.

    I stayed one night in Drogheda and the whole team welcomed me very happily. I was invited to join a staff member's farewell beginning with an apero at the hostel and going on to the local pub and ending at a night club. Close to Drogheda is Newgrange, a historic site with ancient gravestones and closeby is the Boyne Valley, where Ireland fought against Northern Ireland. I spent a very good time there and would definetely recommend the hostel.

    The hostel was really nice and cozy, almost like staying at a friends house. The staff was amazing and the place was very safe and clean. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants peace and quiet and to chill in a smaller town just outside of Dublin. Loved it!

    Nice place. Staff is friendly and willing to work with you to resolve issues. Bathrooms are clean and have new fixtures. The rest of the place has seen some use, but is comfortable enough. There was a problem with lockers that couldn't be locked when I was there; aside from that, I have no complaints.

    The staff was absolutely lovely! Incredibly kind and helpful with a very welcoming feel! We were immediately greeted and after a thorough tour presented with a large variety of activities throughout the area. The facilities felt homely and cozy, very functional kitchen and adorable outdoor sitting area. The showers and bathrooms were practically like at home, always very neat and tidy. Its location close to the station and yet very close to the city centre was great for a one-night-stay.

    Doors barely had a lock on them. Bedroom door had a gap down the side yhat any passer by could look in. Front door hanging off hinges. Place is run down and in desparate need of restoration, wallpaper was also not looking to stay. Only good part was the bathroom. If your at the front, the thin drafty windows will let you hear every noise from the street. Place looks nothing like the pictures either, they must have been taken when it was just opened
