Like something out of Calcutta. Absolutely filthy place. Looked at our room and left immediately. Rooms packed with beds all within touching distance. Bathrooms disgusting. In the place for only a few minutes and still feel itchy. Disgraceful to think tourists are subjected to such third world accommodation in Ireland in 2015. Spoke to shopkeeper nearby and he stated he...

On arriving at the hostel I was reasonably well greeted by a frenchman claiming to be the manager. I wanted to book 3 nights but I had no credit card. I was requested to pay for my first night in cash in case I cancelled at any stage which I agreed to do. There 24hr cancellation policy was explained to...

First of all, its not a B&B but hostel. You can however make your own breakfast in a very nice kitchen. You can watch TV, browse the internet, play board games or a guitar in the living room. The room was clean, little bit cold but clean. So were the showers with hot water. You can get a towel if...

The start of our encounter begun when we were queuing to pay and we had an awkward encounter with a German who told us a boring story about wanting to go up the stairs. We then went down to our rooms which was a 6 bed dorm built for two people at most. The manager came down to tell us...

I am not at all high maintenance and I've stayed in hostels all over the world but this place was horrific. I'm not even sure where to start. So my friend and I booked a room for 2 people and we were given a double bed so we had to share. The room itself was cramped and dirty, there was...

A nice little hostel near the Corrid river and the city centre. Don't expect to much of the rooms, they're quit small. The staff is very kind and helpfull and will even hand out free food if they have some.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night in a double room, however, the noise from the street was too much and left us both with black bags under our eyes the following morning. My girlfriend insisted I stood guard by the horrifying hole by the wall in case a rat scurried out .like if you...

Definitely not upscale, but marvelously friendly and conveniently close to the town center. Not only was the staff friendly, but extremely helpful. I found my fellow travelers to be interesting, entertaining, and fun loving.

Before my booking I was facing bad reviews about this Hostel. So I wasn't very confident about what I will find there... And WOOOW. I mean, by booking in this hostel, you'll meet a very friendly team. They will be ready to give you advice, to have a chat with you or even to know more about you. Plus, you...

First of all, it's a hostel, so don't be expecting everything to you might in one. The rooms are small yes, but I never had any trouble sleeping and I found all the staff helpful. It was also clean and the bathrooms were well kept.
