The kitchen was big and good. The prolonged bike hire was also an excellent thing, as it took me more than six hours to do my around-the-island-trip. The...

The main thing I liked about this hostel is the location is so good. The rooms are clean enough depending what room your in. I stayed in a very nice room with six beds. I had a view of the harbour from my room. I stayed in room 20 with a group of friends and thought it was very quiet...

We stayed on Inis Mór for three nights, and as budget travellers the cheapest option was Kilronan hostel. It is situated in the village of Kilronan, very close to the pier. It is easy to access everything: restaurants, pubs, tourist and grocery stores, bike hire and beaches. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Ask anything and they are happy...

Just spent 3 nights here. Great atmosphere, clean rooms, and helpful staff. The hostel hosted a BBQ free of charge on the patio and then the staff showed us the pubs afterward. I wish I could have stayed longer. It rained one day but the staff had a movie night for us in the tv room with all the coco...

I spent one night in this beautiful place, the staff is really welcoming and friendly, we spent the evening together with pints and barbecue having a perfect Irish craic! The hostel is located in a strategic position, it is really clean and the breakfast is generous. Totally worthy!

You would have to travel a long way to beat the quality of this hostel the staff and accommodation is top notch and I really recommend a stay here.
