Sky Backpackers - The Liffey offers affordable, comfortable and safe backpacker-style accommodation in the centre of Dublin in a unique musical setting.

The hostel is set in a former recording studio (Litton Lane Rehearsal & Recording Studios) and our clients included U2, Van Morrison, Sinead O' Connor, Def Leppard (Hysteria Album), and many more...

You will be staying in one of the most centrally located hostels in Dublin City just around the corner from the river Liffey, the Ha'Penny Bridge, O'Connell Street and a mere 1 minute walk from the Temple Bar Area.

Our aim at Sky Backpackers is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, while providing excellent value. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can offer advice and tips to make sure you don't miss any of the good stuff. We have cable TV, games, books and guest computers. We also have DVD nights plus live music as often as we can.

We offer FREE WIFI so you can look for work and accommodation online in our comfy common room (The Old Rehearsal Studio). It is a great place to meet fellow travelers.


If you play music please let us know before you arrive and we will try to give you a gig in return for some discounted/free accommodation. We have had musicians from America, UK, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, France, Canada, OZ, Brazil, Mexico.....It's global, baby!

Prices are per person per night.
