Having been to a fair few hostels in Europe but also around the world, this one genuinely ranks as one of the best I have stayed at. Jack, the manager, is ever hospitable and keeps the hostel very clean. The location itself is stunning and I did a couple of excellent hikes. I highly recommend the green lake hike - there is a pub at the end!
The common area is really nice and the hostel clearly attracts a fair few solo travellers meaning it is a great place to meet people. The breakfast (included in the price) consists of boiled eggs, bread, various spreads and, considering it is free, is excellent. Pancakes/waffles are also often served! There is unlimited tea and coffee throughout the day.
The beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and the WiFi is quick. Far more importantly, there is always a fridge stocked with €1 beer!
