Like visiting old friends! You walk in to a warm cozy fireplace areas, where there were likely people sitting drinking their tea wanting to chat and hear about your day! The staff was flexible and casual, very accommodating! Tea and coffee always readily available free of charge. The beds are a little warn, and it can get noisy at night... More

Nice little hostel in a beautiful setting. Helpful and pleasant staff. Doolin was a wonderful town to visit. The scenery was beautiful. The local music was fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.

A clean and very cosy hostel. Friendly, welcoming stuff. Compared to other hostels rather expensive, but i guess for a touristy area it is ok. Doolin is a cute, small village, but with some nice pubs very alive. I definitly enjoyed my stay, i even stayed an extra night! It is definitly the place to stay when in Doolin!

This was a sweet little hostel right next to the river in the small village of Doolin. There was a welcoming atmosphere in the common room and the attic room that was my bedroom had lots of space and plenty of light coming in. The kitchen was large and with a good set-up and lots of people were cooking their... More

En suite in our room and worked fine - good shower. Provided advice on the traditional music pubs in Doolin. Beautiful location. A good traditional music pub across the... More

Stayed here or 2 nights mid August. Turns out the Harley Davidson festival was in town so the hostel was really busy and common room was packed at meal times. Our double room with ensuite suited our needs, although the wifi didn't works so we had to go to reception. The breakfast for €1.50 was good value (egg, soda bread,... More

My husband and I spent a perfect night camping in the grounds of Aille River Hostel in Doolin and what a privilege that was!. The camp site was perfect...level, soft earth and beautifully sheltered by a stone wall. The hostel itself is one of the best I've visited...immaculately clean, piping hot showers, very friendly and welcoming staff and owner, a... More

The best hostel in Doolin. Well-located. Only a few steps from Fitzpatrick's Bar with live music. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Clean and cosy rooms and bathrooms. Well-equipped kitchen. Breakfast available on request for €1.50. Free WiFi. Just great! Nothing more, nothing less.
