I had booked to stay here for a Friday and Saturday night to attend a wedding. The morning of the Friday I managed to injure myself and had to spend the day talking to doctors instead of travelling and checking in. The staff were very understanding and modified the booking for me despite being technically outside the limit to cancel...

I had been in Portree for a few days and the hostel is really nice. The staff are great and friendly. I had been in a single room, with bathroom and a small television in the room. Also the hostel is near the bus station and very easy to find. In conclusion, I really recomend it.

Let me begin with the most positive aspect: the staff. The owner actually cares about guests and always tries to fulfill their wishes. The staff are young people from all over the world, I could ask them anything, they are lovely and they even asked me to go out with them in the evenings, we had a lot of great...

The owners and staff were extremely nice, so I feel bad giving them a negative review, but I was quite disappointed in the condition of the dorm room and the bathrooms. The wallpaper was faded, stained and ripped in many places. There was mildew on the floorboards of the wall and a large one on unclean curtains. It smelled strongly...

Very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. I can only apologise if you found mildew on the skirting boards and that the toilets ran out of paper. Our evening shift now check all bathrooms throughout the day to ensure this doesn't happen again and the skirting boards have been fully cleaned. The taps in the shower were replaced...

An excellent place to stay, super friendly and very helpful staff, lovely clean rooms. My 6 year old daughter wanted to move in she loved it that much. I would definitely stay again. Their breakfasts were delicious, they provided extra tea and toast etc when requested. The light bulb also blew in our room and it was changed within ten...

Stayed here for the weekend whilst visiting to run in the Waterford Marathon having booked on line based really on the price is it couldn't be beaten and the location.

The standard of customer service is superb! They went above and beyond to facilitate us. I ran a marathon in Waterford and they provided me and family with everything we needed and more including breakfast made to my specification before the run.

Apologies Karen regarding things being left under a bed by the cleaning staff - that definitely shouldn't have happened. Our bunks, where they exist, are reinforced with steel screws and are completely safe. The bunk did feel loose when I checked it and apologies for that but these issues could have been resolved very quickly had they been brought to...

We stayed in this hostel/b&b for one night and found it adequate for our needs.

Thanks for the positive review overall. I do think our breakfast is well priced (I've never heard of anywhere in the city that does a full Irish for the Eur 5 you've referenced), but given our size and low volume for breakfast it wouldn't be cost effective for us to match that price - (the cheapest breakfast in the city...
