Nice staff, great location, good facilities, small number of people in the rooms compared to other dorms in other hostels near by
Nice staff. Comfortable spacious bed with a soft and huge blanket. Delicious breakfast with amazing pastry. I liked staying there. Along the street are many restaurants. As you are in Salthill it only takes a 20 min walk to Galway.
The breakfast was fine, it had some cereals, mini pancakes, bread for toast and stuff like butter and jam. I enjoyed the free burger night. My bed was comfortable, I liked the amount of plugs available and the light was very useful too. I thought the whole setup was rather safe, and I made good use of the lockers under the bed. I also liked the left luggage service.
I was disapointed that the hostel had run out of earplugs when I arrived. The hostel is located next to a pub and to the busy roads of Dublin's city centre, so it was quite loud, even at night. In my room, the ensuite bathroom sink was also a little weird. For some reason, the hot tap turned around when I tried to close it. So, that was a little weird....
I really liked the staff, they were really helpful. The hostel is just in the centre of Dublin, and it's really close to the most important places.
Unfortunately, for the breakfast there were mostly sweet things (beside salty butter, cucumber and tomato). Cheese or ham would be nice.
Great location, very clean, reasonable price.
A stay at Sky Backpackers places you in the heart of Dublin, steps from The Spire and Abbey Street. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A shuttle from the hotel to the airport is provided for a surcharge (available on request).
