We spent twot very pleasant nights here. We stayed in the double ensuite room. The hostel is wonderfully located and Robert is warm and welcoming. The cooking facilities are great and in the evening it's great to eat a meal with the fire burning and the music playing. I'd recommend the breakfast for 1,5 euros too,

This is a great little hostel. Very clean and the owner Peter is very helpful. If your in doolin and looking for a hostel this is the place to stay. In general the location is good and there is a lovely little river outside the hostel which is nice to sit by and relax.

Stayed in the hostel for one night. It´s in a great place, close to the Cliffs of Moher, very close to a pub in Doolin (just across the street). The room was a bit cold when we got there, but it got better. The breakfast was great, the staff was really nice and helpful. I would stay there again.

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

We stayed there one night, and found the staff to be great. Gave us a quick tour of the facility then showed us to our room. Room was small but fine. 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
