As far as the word Hostel goes, in my mind it equates to slum dog. We were recently at a wedding in Sligo which was held at the Radisson Blue, due to upcoming holidays we couldn't afford the hotel prices and i had considered camping in Strandhill (as we often do on a yearly basis) I came across this hostel...

This accomodation is fairly shabby. There was mould on the walls of our double bunk, tiny room. It was incredibly badly lit and the carpet was absolutely disgusting and filthy looking. There also was a very unsavoury smell in the bedroom. We also had to go looking for toilet roll for the bathroom on our floor as it was without... More

We stayed here for a brief night, booked last minute and got a comfortable ensuite room for two for 50euro including a basic breakfast. It was clean, comfortable and warm and for a last minute booking it exceeded my expectations. Its a bit far from the city centre but if you don't mind walking it'll be no problem. I'd stay... More

Thought this hostel was exactly what you'd expect from a hostel for €20 to be honest! More so a glorified B&B. The rooms were nice enough if not a bit basic. I stayed for New Years though so realistically I just wanted the bed... The lady at the front was really easy going and accommodating and didn't mind that there... More

I booked the hostel (dorm) when it was still called Harbour House Hostel, about a month ago. I had looked at previous comments, and was kind of reluctant to book it. Had to though because everything else was booked up. The one person from the staff that I met was lovely and explained everything. There were a lot of things... More

Myself and my family stayed there. Staff were great, warm welcome and listed places of interest for us to see and gave us a map with all marked out and how to get there. Room bright, clean & towels were provided free. Lovely dining room and sitting room. Great selection for breakfast, the girl even got coco pops and hot... More

We had a private room at Harbour House. It was clean, sunny, comfortable and modern. The hostel seemed well-run. When we were there it was quiet. It's a bit off the main drag but walking distance. There is a breakfast of bread, cereal and coffee included, free computer, laundry for 10 euros.

A wonderful, small hostel, friendly staff, and a great sitting room with an open fire. Clean, neat kitchen, the whole hostel was tidy and neat. My bedroom was small and quaint ! Great location and a car park at the rear. Wifi in the lounge room.

I stayed in this hostel just a few weeks ago and loved it! From the outside it doesn't look like much but the inside is so cosy with a warm fireplace. Upon arrival the staff were very friendly. My room was lovely and was like a hotel room, great value for money! The hostels location was good too as it... More
