Located in Lush Glendalough, this is a very walker-friendly & oriented hostel. Spectacular surroundings of Greenery, walkways and all kinds of weather. A really beautiful place, a very special place. Highly recommend.

The mattress was too tight and uncomfortable and the toilet flush did not work properly. Other then that the staff was okay. They didn't have any info maps even though there are located in a famous hiking place. Would recommend it for one night but not for a longer stay.
