Sky Backpackers - The Liffey Hostel reviews

9.7 Outstanding!

The Hostel was clean, well situated, and the desk is staffed 24 hours. We had a bright, airy room and a large, clean-as-a-whistle bathroom. Staff was happy to order us a taxi for our early-morning run to the airport and even offered to make breakfast available early to accommodate our early departure. Only complaint is that the common area is a bit dark and tired-looking.
