Lonely Planet review
With its bright, spacious, single-sex dorms, superb views and friendly staff, the 200-bed Castle Rock has lots to like. It has a great location – the only way to get closer to the castle would be to pitch a tent on the esplanade – a games room, reading lounge and big-screen video nights.
Our independent authors have visited Castle Rock Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Old Town.
