Early last spring, three friends and myself booked a shared room in this hostel which we chose for its wonderful location. It is situated in Glenveagh National Park, at the foot of Mount Errigal, only a few minutes' drive from the village of Gweedore and the Poison Glen. We got a warm welcome upon arrival and were directed to a... More

I stayed for four nights at this hostel. Very reasonably priced, but everytime I took a shower on the ground floor, where I was staying, the water was cold. When I told the receptionist, she told me it would be repaired and that it was the same throughout the building. I doubted this, and went myself to the second floor... More

So sorry to read you didn't enjoy your stay. If i remember correctly we had a issue with our boiler at the start of the season and unfortunately the showers were cold. The upstairs showers hold a bit of heat but usually for one shower. There must have been a misunderstanding about staying longer, perhaps the group had all the... More

This is clear and spacious hostel...Very well located near Mountain Errigal - a worth hiking place. We had group of ~15-20 people who went and enjoyed our stay. Evening is very beautiful as you can see Sunset nearby.

Stayed for one night here and me and my friends found it amazing. Great hospitality and we felt right at home as staff were really welcoming to us. Would definitely visit again as it has great facilities with a tv room and wifi.

Stopped here on a Sunday night, so there wasn't too many other guests the location is a beautiful spot, a nice short drive in to Bunbeg and the beach. Clean, quiet, comfortable and friendly, and a great introduction to stopping in a hostel for my 12 year old. We will defiantly be back,

The hostel is located near the Glenveagh National Park in Donegal. The view of Errigal Mountain is in the backyard of the hostel, which makes it a gorgeous location for the hostel. The rooms are clean, the dining room is large enough and with a good kitchen. Perfect area for hiking, walking and is childfriendly.

The hostel is nestled just in front of Mount Errigal so beautiful view. The showers amazing and the kitchen large with plenty of cooking facilities for more... More

The hostel was opened for 12 of us in November when it is usually closed.we used it as a base for a biking weekend and we could not have found a better place. The dry room was perfect when we came back after a day of getting wet and dirty it left all our gear dry for the next morning.... More
