I had a reservation for a different hostel but happened to walk by this place and wandered in. I asked the gentleman at the front if they happen to have a private room for one for a few days. He gave me a rate of about €35 per night which is a great deal for a private room. It was... More

Our family recently stayed in a triple room at the Hideout Hostel. The location was perfect - right in town but off the main streets which cut down on the noise. We stayed 3 nights and didn't hear a sound from anyone after 10pm. Our room was clean and spacious. The hostel also had a nice sitting room and beautiful... More

Myself and 2 friends had our first hostel experience at the Hideout. To be honest we were very wary going into it. But we had our worries put to rest within mins. I booked a 4 person room and had 2 different roomies while there. It was so interesting getting to meet people from other countries and both girls were... More

I would highly recommend that you DO NOT MAKE A RESERVATION with this hostel as they will not honor it!! The Hideout Hostel cancelled our reservation despite having paid a deposit, which I was told would not be refunded!! I was told if I was booking a room for four people that despite booking it online I should also ring... More

First, let me admit that I may not be the "typical" hostel goer. I generally consider staying in a hostel more of a financial necessity as opposed to a preference, so this review can be taken with a grain of salt. That being said, I have stayed in about a dozen or so around the world so I feel I... More

You are right! You are not a “typical Hostel goer”. From our reviews, you can see we do get good reviews for the cleanliness of our rooms and the Hostel in general. When you stay in dorms you get two pillows, a duvet, a bottom sheet and a hand towel. You have the option to hire a bath towel. In... More

I stayed in the Hideout Hostel for 3 nights in November and then loved it and the town so much that I had to come back again. This hostel is more like a bed and breakfast than a hostel, the owner Micheal is really, really nice and very helpful. The breakfast was the best I had in any of the... More

My friend and I just stayed here last weekend for one night. We knew we wanted something in the center of town and preferably with a room for just the two of us to share. We got that and even more! The staff, Mihal in particular, was friendly and welcoming and extremely helpful to answer any questions we had. Our... More
