The Lahinch Hostel was a really great place to stay! The owner set us up with surfing lessons and was overly accommodating. The beds were clean and comfortable, the showers warm, the facilities well kept. The rooms were small, but definitely manageable.

I stayed in this hostel for a week end, i was in Lahinch for surfing, and they provide a boards storage place and hot showers when you dress your wetsuit off. The breakfast was as normal for an hostel but they let all the stuff all day long, so if you feel hungry you can eat during the afternoon. The... More

I stay here every time I visit lahinch. Perfect for surfers with gear (board room out back + shower facilities ideal) staff are always friendly. Never had a problem. Always had a great time. Seems to be a bit of work going on at the back. Caused no inconvenience at all.

Lahinch is a lovely place and the hostel has a Great location, and is very tidy & clean. Very cheap. Lovely ghowers. Short walk to the beach, shorter walk to the pubs. It's all good. Friendly service too. I would recommend to any one. Two thumbs up!

I stayed in this hostel as part of a large group of college students and could not have been happier with the experience. The staff encouraged having a bit of craic and although we had every intention of cleaning up the next morning (I swear!) they beat us to the punch and had done all the work before we woke... More

First of all, it's a hostel, so don't expect a regal interior. If you can get over that and just want somewhere to stay overnight in Lahinch, this place fits the bill. Admittedly I went with a group of friends aged 18-20 so we made a long night of it, but we didn't need the lap of luxury to enjoy... More

Booking this hostel was a nightmare. Do NOT give out your credit card details to them over the phone. This hostel is badly run and unorganized. The hygiene levels are very poor with no hand soap provided in the shared bathrooms. The dorm was very cramped and not very clean. The staff were rude and disturbed our stay with constant... More
