Very clean hostel. it looked like they have just renovated the bigger showe/bathroom. looks new. kitchen clean as well (which is very important to me) I wouldn't call it town hostel though as Donegal Town is a good walk away...but all in all a nice hostel where id definitely would stay again when in Donegal.

The staff was great: very helpful with directions and information. Room was clean and nice. The facilities were nice, maybe a little small for the number of people using them but we could have gotten up earlier and avoided the rush!

Family environment with great views, great new bathroom, very clean. Great kitchen... you can park your car just outside. Not far from the town centre. The owners are very friendly and nice. The rooms are good, and the area is very quiet! Perfect to enjoy a relaxing weekend.

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
