I spent my first night on my trip in Ireland with a friend of mine in this hostel. The owner was really nice and friendly and gave us a lot of advice on what to see/how to get there. The dormitory is perfect. Only 5 beds and most of them are single, there is only one bunk. Prices are more... More

Good place to stay, great location beside the bus/ train station and very close to the town centre. The place was clean with comfortable beds, bathroom was right beside the room. Very friendly and helpful owners. Nice kitchen/ common room area. Good value for money.

Yes, it is old and historical, near the Railway Station in Sligo in the heart of Yeats country. It is well furnished with an old-worldly touch, although there are no lifts. But it is comfortable and the staff are nice and pleasant.

Came here years ago so happy to finally leave a review. Sean was the sweetest man and this hostel was the best of all that we stayed in all over Ireland, this one and the one in Glencollumkille (Sp?) Cute little clean rooms and a comfortable sitting social room. Loved our stay here wish we would have stayed longer. Thanks... More

This place is a gem. A clean, safe hostel nearby the bus and train stations. The Railway Hostel is operated by a couple (Maggie and Sean) who truly want your stay to be pleasurable. Free WI-FI; inviting community room with an attached mini-kitchen area; clean bathrooms; clean rooms. Completely pleased with our two evening stay. Thank you Maggie and Sean.

Clean and cheap. Comfortable bed. The owners were lovely, very helpful and friendly. It is literally round the corner from the train station and v close to town. I will say this is a hostel - expect a hostel. There were no towels in the bathroom – std for hostels but a bit irksome. Also there are wood floorboards everywhere... More
