I loved the experience! The team is lovely and funny. We had such great moments together! The city is adorable and near Dublin and the Hostel is really cozy, I felt at home. I absolutely recommend this hostel! Thanks Rory and Declan for the support. It was amazing!

My experience in the Spoon and the stars was such an incredible experience!
All was beyond of what I expected : the link with the work team and all the guests, the hostel atmosphere where you can feel like home,etc.

Also, the different tasks permit to you to improve your English, especially the reception in an hostel, where you have the good sides and also, the problems with the guests to resolve!

I didn’t regret my choice of this hostel, Rory is a really good host and is aware about how you feel.

Drogheda is a little city, from where you reach easily Dublin and Belfast.
