Everything about this place was great- comforting, comfortable, the people were very nice, and our group slept super well. We only stayed one night, but we all would have loved to stay more. We thought it was well worth the money!

I stayed here with my son between Oct 9 and 12, 2015. Of the many hostels we stayed at on our trip, the Allie River Hostel stands out as one of the best. I wish I could remember the name of the lady in charge because she was so friendly and helpful. She allowed us to store our 2 bags... More

We only stayed at Aille River Hostel for one night but it was a really nice experience. We had a quad share room on the ground floor with a private shower/toilet. The hostel also has a shared bathroom/shower area which I used and found great. The communal area is very cosy with a fireplace, lounges and tables to sit out.... More

We reserved the private double room with a separate entrance. It was perfect. Check in was simple and the girl at reception was friendly and efficient. We stayed one night and had absolutely no complaints. Perfect

We spent only one night here but it was great! The spirit between everybody was great, the fire was on and the fireplace was a great place to start conversations! It is a beautiful place and right across the street there was a pub with great live music! If I ever go back, I´ll stay in the Allie River Hostel... More

I really enjoyed this place. The warm fire at night, clean rooms and community feel. Furthermore, they really care about the place and everything works! We had the breakfast option of oats and a coffee and then jumped on a ferry to the small island. We asked questions and they provided great advice.

Such a beautiful hostel and the nicest staff. Beautiful spot on a little river with places to sit outside and enjoy the view. And the building is just as quaint in person as the pictures suggest, if not more so. It's also a great location in terms of its proximity to the pubs, restaurants, and shops of Doolin, the cliffs...

My Favorite hostel in Ireland! Very clean, the BEST atmosphere and close to everything. Trust me, you NEED to stay here. I can't believe the hospitality they offer! The view of the creek is exceptional and it's very close to say high to joe, the donkey of doolin!

This hostel is on a great location in a beautiful stone house next to the river. We stayed in 6 dorm room, it was clean , we had a bathroom in our room. The price is great. Staff was very friendly. It's close to the pubs and to bus station. You can ever rent a tent or camp there. Surroundings... More
