    We spent one night there, the location is great because it is just next door to the center and a supermarket, the place is quite clean but I will not recomand this place. The owner is rude and kind of scary, she almost shut the door at our faces when we tried to ask her a few questions about the... More

    I spent 2 nights here with 2 friends. The hostel is a few minutes walk from the centre of town, and is close to the coastline and close to a well-stocked service station (where you could get hot food etc). Its a basic hostel, we found it clean and functional. The owner is a nice lady, very dry humour but... More

    I have stayed at hostels all over the world and this was the worst. The lady is so rude. We were about to give her our passports but she just said 'You can just pay me now'. She didn't offer us any chance to ask any more questions, she just went into her room and stayed there. This lady does... More

    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
