I found the facilities sparse and minimalist. While the facilities were poor the owner really needs to have a good look at her manner as its confrontational at best. I felt that my interactions with her put me in bad form for the night and made me determined to book well in advance so as to avoid such a place... More

the location is very good and the rooms are clean enough, BUT the owner of the place needs to have a good hard look at her self, talk about a cranky old bag, she shouldn't be in hospitality, and the power sockets didn't work...

My brother and I decided to go to dingle for a night of craic and a few beers and I booked a room in this hostel as it was cheap and close to the town centre. When we arrived we were checked into a room by what I can only describe as the most cranky and unmannerly person I have... More

Myself and my friend stayed here for a midweek work-related excursion to Dingle. The experience we had of Lovett's hostel from the very start was nothing but positive. We had certain requirements - i.e. the need for good WIFI connection, location, security - and our expectations regarding all of these were surpassed. Firstly, the location itself is excellent - in... More

One of the best places I've ever stayed! It's more like a B&B setting but with the price of a hostel. Clean, plenty of room, and comfortable. The family that owns the hostel are lovely - very friendly and warm :). And very accommodating! The location is great as well. If you come to dingle, there's no better place to... More

Rooms are a bit small but the hostel was quite empty (end of july) so we had enough room for us. The owner is bit rude; she came into our room once without knocking at the door. Shower has warm water and the toilet is good as well. The hostel is clean; there's also a small kitchen and a sitting... More

When we first arrived there was a bit of confusion with the booking (I had inquired about adding a night to our stay and the owner had muddled it up with another cancellation). Only one bed was available and we needed two; and since it was festival weekend nothing else in town was available. The owner offered for me to... More

I stayed at the Lovett's for 2 nights. It was nice and very clean, also the staff was helpful and friendly. Still I have two complaints: - Signs at the doors the visitors are not supposed to enter would have been very useful, because more often than not I was quite unsure about it. - It's stated that the hostel...
