We have visited Dingle several times before, and knew that it would be on our itinerary for our cycling and hiking group of 11 people. The staff was very helpful and they allowed us a safe place to store our bikes. The kitchen is nice, and we prepared a sit-down dinner for our whole group which was fun! The location... More

When you first walk in you are met with very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is great, the rooms are very clean and you can't go wrong with the kitchen which is clean and well stocked with whatever cooking utensils you need. We were going to only stay four nights but the but extended it one more night.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Hideout in May 2014, and we had a great stay! Indeed, the hostel is one of my favorites from a sixteen day trip to Ireland. I brought college students over for the first ten days, and we stayed at other hostels, but The Hideout is more like a B and B than a... More

I really cannot say enough about the warmth and hospitality of the Hideout Hostel in Dingle, Ireland. I discovered Dingle and the Hideout back 2011 and have been returning to the Hideout ever since. I personally have stayed at this hostel 4 times in my last 3 visits to Dingle. I actually returned to Dingle, and the Hideout, a second... More

I only had the pleasure of staying at the hideout for one night but it was a lovely night. I arrived too early for check-in and was offered breakfast which included yogurt, fruit, granola and juice in addition to the usual hostel fare of tea toast and jam. There's a big cozy sitting area, the wifi works throughout the hostel,... More

I had a great time at this hostel and the staff are very nice! My adventure in Ireland was over two weeks and I ended having some of my best memories from the people I met in the Hideout Hostel. I don't know what is wrong with the few people that have had horrible reviews...Something is wrong with them hahahah.

This is the best hostel I've stayed at, in Ireland and across Europe and into Morocco. You should absolutely stay here! The staff are kind and helpful but not intrusive. They helped me find exactly the kind of shops I wanted, and told me about a great walk out around the point. The hostel provides a breakfast with yogurt (!!)... More

From looking at the response to other negative reviews by the owner I am almost scared to write about my terrible stay in the hideout. Firstly you do not feel like a guest in this place you are more of an inconvenience. The positive and fun atmosphere of Dingle stops right at the door of this hostel. Having stayed in... More

Micheal B, Manager at The Hideout Hostel, responded to this review

You booked for 3; you kicked up a fuss when you arrived saying you booked for four. Your group were both intimidating and aggressive to other guests. You arrived back to the Hostel at 2am with five people in your group. The Hideout Hostel is not a party Hostel. We expect our guests to be respectful to everyone in the... More

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
