Travelling solo, I stayed at Sky Backpackers for 3 nights in June. It was a little difficult to find; tucked away down an alley, but once I'd found it once, I could navigate back to it no problem. No matter how many Guinness', the white bridge over the famous River Liffey always guided me home. I stayed in a 4...

During my short stay at Sky Backpackers in Dublin, I had nothing short of an exceptional experience. My travel group consisted of four friends from school, and reserving a four bed private suite for our group, we were provided a private bathroom and private room. We did not catch breakfast which was a small cost of three euro in the...

This hostel was tucked away in an alley off the main road which made it much quieter at night. Staff were all very helpful. Close to everything. We especially enjoyed the charging station attached to the bed so we could charge our phones via a usb cord rather than taking turns using our adapter. Would definitely stay again.

So, I arrive and the girl at the front desk asks me to go in the common area while she works with a couple guests. She said she'd come get me when she's done with the cpuple. I was in line and a group of about 6 guys were behind me when she said that. She proceeds to help the...

I booked via LateRooms.com (a tip: worth booking with the hostel themselves because I could have probably saved money, and also the number and email given was the wrong one so I had to look it up online). Decent little hostel, though as others have mentioned it was right next to a pub which could generate quite a bit of...

We arrived early and were not able to check in right away but they were able to store our bags for us (for free). The location was great in terms of being close to everything but it is right across from a pub so it got noisy in the evenings and nights when the window was opened (which it always...

Great hostel in a superb location. Very clean and staff were very friendly. I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Dublin and would stay here again. Breakfast, although basic was just €3 so is an excellent option for anyone on a budget. Wi-Fi is also easily accessible and free to all guests.
