Linda and Andy. Always smiling, always ready to help you. The hearth of this hostel. What else? Lot of rooms and bathrooms very cleaned, good kitchen stuff. Very near to the town but far enough to stay quite.

Admittedly, we only stayed a night as we were passing through on our road trip, but due to the amazing stay we had we count that night as one of the best of our week in Ireland. The hostel is located in a small town with amazing seafood. It was built 100 years ago or more and overlooks a breathtaking... More

A group of four of us stayed here on a recent walking weekend to sleive league and the bluestacks. Linda and Andy made us feel at home from the very get go and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Recent work to the bedrooms and bathrooms make the place very modern and comfortable. Beds were soft and most welcoming after a... More

We stumbled upon this hostel after struggling to find somewhere in Sligo. One of the friendliest hostels I have ever stayed at. Linda is the sweetest host, she stayed up chatting with us all night. I can not say enough nice things about this lovely lady. If we had more time I would love to stay here longer and if... More

This place is great. The family that owns the place are very friendly. The house is very cozy too. It's about a ten minute walk from the town centre but you can walk along the coast of the bay which is very beautiful. Lovely place to stay and I highly recommend it!

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.
