I booked into this hostel which only cost €20, rather than make an early start and drive to sligo on the morning of the cycle, it was a bank holidy weekend and I could not get a single room, so I had to share with 3 others, i found these people friendly enough, the hostel is clean and tidy, with...

Everything good for me during my one night stay at this hostel. Definitely will come back. Just bear in mind there is not many restaurants open at night if you arrive late. So you may want to pack some dinner if you plan to arrive late at the hostel.

Excellent location, right next to a wonderful (surf) beach and 15 mins from Sligo with frequent buses. Normal beachbreaks in middle of beach, point break on right and rivermouth on left. Waves for every level, here or nearby. Bundoran (with Mullaghmore Head) and Easky 40 mins drive in opposite directions. A typical Irish pub across road with live folk music...

Great set of staff from all over the world working there. Arrived after dark and were warmly welcomed with a wallowing broth of soup. Lovely atmosphere even though the place was nearly empty. Met the magnificently friendly owner Michael. Chatted with the staff about language and shared travelling stories. Located right across the road from the Strand Pub which is...

We arrived late on a stormy and snowy afternoon with no booking. We stayed in the lodge section in a cute wee room with small bathroom. Shower was good. Included good continental breakfast. Staff was lovely and helpful. Good at/restaurant near by.

It is only a hostel and it is kept clean, but to be honest it isn't great either. The toilets are all partitions without sinks, the only sinks are in the two showers so if somebody is using the shower you can't wash your hands after using the toilets. And for a surf hostel that could have nearly 30 people...

I spent 4 nights in Strandhill and now I'm glad to share my experience with other travelers: this is a very nice hostel, clean and quiet, just in front of the Strandhill beach. The four bed dormitory is very comfortable (the room is big and bright), the beds are clean, as well as the showers and the toilets. The kitchen...
