Such a good place to stay, spotlessly clean despite building outside to provide more beds for weary travellers, rooms fine, really thoughtful environmental responsibility, smashing buffet breakfasts and the most considerate helpful staff you could wish for. Nothing seems too much trouble, so helpful, and a truly warm welcoming place. Lovely cosy lounge for when you need to relax too....

Clean, budget friendly and basic. They are expanding so parking was troublesome, construction started very early in the am so lots of noise. Breakfast was typical hostel food, but if you brought food there was an option to cook for yourself. Bathroom was basic.

Lovely hostel, great breakfast including scones. Sockets and lights above the beds such a great idea. So close to the Cliffs of Mohar. Well recommended. Very friendly staff. We were in the building opposite the hostel, quiet.

Stopped in after walking Doolin cliff walk, on our own. Great, relaxing cafe. No rushed feeling like others in center of 'towns' we've experienced this week. Friendly staff. We would consider staying at the hostel, just based on their excellent courteous service and reputation.

This is the first hostel I've stayed in since the 1970s! Gosh they've come a long way. Our double (superior) ensuite room was great - clean, modern, comfortable and private. It was an amazingly busy place with lots of coming and going but the staff were always there to give you their time and help. (We got very wet one...

Stayed 1 night in August 2016. Very welcoming staff. The room was very clean, bedding comfy, and the bathroom was clean and roomy. Walls a bit thin, hearing the next room families' conversations while lying on bed, though did not keep me up. Facility is well maintained. WIFI service is very slow and limited to sitting room area.
