Having stayed at some really rum hostels, I can honestly state that Errigal is not one of them! Friendly staff, clean, warm and comfortable dorms (some with private bathrooms and plenty of hot water at all hours); a fabulously fitted and sparkly clean kitchen; continental breakfast (free tea/coffee, juice, bread and cereals); pleasant, airy communal areas and ample free car...

Stayed in this hostel recently for one night before a friends wedding. Location and amenities were great. Staff were so so friendly and helpful. I actually stayed here with my toddler and whilst the noise levels late at night carried through the bedrooms, it was still an enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend and stay again xx

Stayed here with a group of walkers recently and we could not fault it, congratulations to Ann and the rest of the staff for supplying such a fabulous service. We came back after our first walk to find our beds made for us, what a treat in a hostel. Lots of hot water, spotlessly clean, excellent drying room - it... More

Fantastic, this hostel is at the foot of mount errigal, it's well worth a visit, we stayed in a family room, extremely clean with comfy beds, only thing about the general area of dunlewy is bring insect repellant as there are a lot of midges and horse flies in the summer.

I stayed here with some friends for one night recently. The hostel is clean, modern and well equipped. I had booked into the female dorm room and ended up having it all to myself. The view from the hostel over Errigal is stunning and perfect for checking conditions on the mountain before venturing up it! The best bit though were... More

The newly built Errigal Hostel feels bright, modern and clean. The room was a little bare, but was clean and tidy. There was some noise during the night from the corridor and from people using the toilet next door. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area is very comfortable with great views north to Errigal or south to... More

It was first stay in a hostel for me, and I had a good experience. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Room (we had twin room for two people) was clean, bedlinnen was provided at check-in. The main point for me is: location. Many must see places are located next to it. Good for the price.
