We love staying here. The owners, Andy and Linda, are so welcoming and fun to visit. The keep this place clean and well supplied. It is an easy five minute walk to Townes Center and Donegal Castle. We would stay here anytime we are in Donegal.

Lovely atmosphere . Very friendly and helpful staff...fantastic place to stay in Donegal. Located one kilometer from the town center. The rooms are clean and nice. My favorite place is the kitchen with good wifi connection. I spent there two nights even I booked only one. Thanks! Kasia

I stayed here for two nights with my mum. Upon arriving we were greeted by Linda and Andy, they told us where we should drive for scenic lookouts, cliffs, beaches etc. Hostel was clean, warming and it was a great location. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip to Donegal Town.

Staying at this hostel in Donegal was definitely the highlight of my trip. The owners and their daughter are very warm and welcoming. The hostel is a bit older, but it is kept very clean. The mattress I slept on was a bit hard, but the welcoming warm environment buffered that. There is a nice commons area with a fireplace,... More

I stayed here for two nights. Despite the hostel being a km or so outside of town, the warm welcome given by Linda more than made up for its distance from town. The hostel is in a lovely white big house on a hill overlooking the Killybegs Road. It had a lovely lounge area with coal fireplace tended to.by.Linda constantly.... More

Linda made this hostel a brilliant experience. She was unbelievably helpful in pointing me in the right directions. This hostel is very well kept with a lot of character in and out side of the hostel. It is quiet and has a beautiful view. Plenty of places to sit and relax or mingle with other travelers. It is about a... More

The reception is very friendly. Nice common area. The kitchen is basic. The rooms had a strange smell. Providing some basic breakfast (bread and jam) in the morning would level up the hostel given that the nearest shop is 1.5km away. The showers are outdated but warm enough and reasonably clean (wouldn't like to know though how it looks when... More

This hostel wasn't bad but we definitely stayed at better during our trip in Ireland. We found that the kitchen smelled a bit, and we felt the shared areas such as kitchen and bathrooms could have been cleaner. Our bedroom was fine, as were the other rooms we saw, so no problems as far as that is concerned, although we... More
