We stayed in a private room in the Sugan hostel. The idea is very nice: the shire, lords of the rings, mordor,... And the staff is very friendly. The establishment however needs refurbishing. Rooms are very basic and not very clean. The common areas as well could use some fresh paint and new furniture. Strangely, we didn't really mind so...

It is not what it looks like on the outside. The shower sprayed water all over the floor. I should not have to use a hair dryer to dry the floors! There is mould everywhere. Ceilings, washrooms, kitchen, kitchen utensils, counter tops... This place needs to be shut down by health inspectors. The redeeming quality and the reason why I...

The sign in the bedroom states, "If you need anything call into the Shire, and the lads will help you out." True to form, the lads who work there were both charming! Kevin and Shane are the most helpful lads we've ever met. They carried our bags to our room, offered advice about the town, and even procured us coffee...

Love the place. If anything they need more LOTR things in the pub! You can even read the books. Hostel is very traditional old timey looking Irish home. Buen ambiente, le falta más decoración del señor de los anillos por lo demás genial, la gente es muy amable. El hostel, es normal aunque no muy limpio. La situación es excelente.

As a Lord of the Rings fan having a bar called the Shire part of this place and it being LotR themed I thought "yeeesssss I need to stay here!!!" Very disappointed. Loud, crammed, wifi is no good, pub doesn't have food, in general rundown. The staff seem friendly enough. No way to get from common room or pub from...

We stayed there for 3 nights. The location is great. The room was a small twin bedroom with very uncomfortable beds. The room and bathroom wasn't very clean. The hostel's bar is a great bar that also functioning as the hostel's reception. The staff are nice and friendly but there's no body to talk to in the morning.

I often stay in hostels around Ireland so I know exactly what they are like but this was below average. The room was an 8 bed but it was very small. There wasn't much space for bags etc and when it with strangers it's a bit too small. The room was dirty and the paint was peeling off the walls....

Stayed here for two nights during a two week trip through Ireland. The location was great, the staff were friendly, but the rooms weren't clean. There appeared to be mold on the wall in the bedroom near the ceiling.

The location is perfect, 5mins from train and bus station by walking. The staffs are very friendly!!! A man who lends me the towel, I'd like to say thank you. ;-) The room doesn't smell well!!!!! It's not a big problem tho. We will stay again:-)

We took a chance on this hostel despite some bad reviews. We were attracted to the location and that they advertised discount bike rentals and breakfast. We arrived to find out they no longer offered discount bike rentals and were given conflicting and confusing information about parking. We were in a dorm with 8 beds but only had access to...
