Not one of those crazy hostels win ridiculous rules, it was more of a "everyone play fair " type place. Perfect location in terms of food bars touring and partying. Just off main...

This hostel made a very good impression on me. Well located close to the main street, this hostel suited my needs perfectly. The manager, Cole, is very hospitable and helpful without being intrusive. Particularly liked the comfortable, bespoke, sturdy beds and bunks. The Grapevine will be my first choice for hostel accommodation when I next visit Dingle.
