I loved this hostel. It has a great common area to hang out. There is a closet to store your bag if you arrive before check in time. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The locations is great...in a little alley way very close to where the Liffey meets O'Connell St. Very close to Temple Bar. Close to bus...

Perfect location to get you anywhere downtown in max 10 mins. Very friendly staff, clean rooms and common room. I did enjoy the ways the walls were decorated on corridors. Also the beds had a nice solution for charging phones and using a power socket. And a decently sized box where you could lock your belongings, big enough to accommodate...

The hostel is fairly centrally located which made it easy to walk pretty much everywhere - the only times I needed public transportation were coming in from Heuston Station and leaving to the airport. The rooms were clean enough and we had a shower and bathroom inside our six-bed all-female dorm. The room faced the street, which was incredibly noisy...

My first impression when I walked in was that I think the pictures on line are a little old, I think the paint in the common areas could have used the paint a little freshened up, but I imagine it would be difficult to work around the murals on the walls, The paint however in the room seemed very new...

Had such a good experience at this hostel. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm but it was never full the whole time I was there (4 nights). The rooms and ensuite bathroom were very clean. I also loved how the hostel had free (often food related) activities every night. I partook in movie & ice cream night and...

I stayed for two nights and had such a difficult time with my reservation. There was a mix up for the first night I stayed and the receptionist had to rearrange my room to accommodate my previous requests. The second night was no better. One of the roommates (I was in a 4 bed mixed dorm) came in very loudly...

Stayed here for 1 night and it was better than I expected. Clean common areas and rooms. Mattresses were comfortable and staff were friendly. The luggage storage is secured and only entry with a key card given by the staff ensures your valuables stay secured. No towels were offered so make sure you have your own.

The hostel is in a great location for all Dublin attractions and transport links. Tucked away in an alley with a small sign to show the way. Rooms and bathroom very clean. Bed was comfortable and not too soft. Facilities in the communal areas are good. Bit expensive per night but Dublin is generally expensive all over.

This was a great choice for the money. Within easy walking distance of anything in Dublin. Lovely staff. Breakfast costs €3, but that's excusable. Incredibly clean, safe place. I would certainly recommend this place.

I really enjoyed my stay at Sky Backpackers. The hostel was VERY clean and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The beds were great as each bed has their own charger and light. Sharing the bathroom with 6 other people in the monring was a bit annoying as there were no other toilettes on our floor to accomodate...
