I stayed there with my husband and friends, the hostel is clean, organized, breakfast is very good and the staff are very attentive. There some pubs around and It is near the Cliffs of Moher. I recommend!

I stayed at Doolin Hostel in June 2015. The staff were very helpful and friendly when I was booking rooms for a group of people with different requirements. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and I would definitely stay there again. There was a good continental breakfast with plenty to choose from. There were a good number of parking spaces...

This place is better than most hotels. Friendly staff,clean rooms and a great breakfast. Highly recommended. The WiFi was perfectly adequate but to be honest,if you're the sort of person who worries about WiFi connection,Doolin is probably not your sort of place.

Doolin hostel is just fantastic! On arrival you will be greeted with a smile. And you'll be smiling all through your stay. We had a private double room and it was perfect... Just like staying in a hotel! The breakfast is fresh and plentiful the staff are extremely helpful and the coffee in the attached cafe is excellent! Well priced... More

To be honest I'd never stayed in a hostel before and approached this with some trepidation. I needn't have worried. From the moment you walk in all hostel stereotypes go out the window. The weather was awful but the staff were jovial and welcoming. Everything was light bright and spotless. We had a double room which was small but modern... More

I loved staying here! Doolin is VERY small, but it's a perfect, quaint little place to stay if you want to visit Doolin. The bus stop is right in front the hostel, which is very convenient. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. The cafe has great food as well. Only drawback is the wifi doesn't work well, but you're... More

You get so much for the very modest price here... a very decent room, ensuite bathroom, a fresh continental breakfast with many choices, a communal kitchen and fridge if you care to prepare your own meals, and most of all, a very helpful staff so eager to help you plan your visit to Western Ireland. They will also make free... More

Homely feel with a gorgeous breakfast. Well located and beautifully presented. I was very happy here! The cafe is very handy, great coffees and croissants. The local pub is good craic too! Each bed has a light, two UBS ports and a plug. Comfortable bedding and very good showers.

This cafe had the absolute BEST BLT of my entire life. The service was absolutely friendly and made the cold day a little less dreary. I have never seen someone behind a counter with the ability to connect so well with everyone that walks in. I felt so welcome, the food was delicious, and though I didn't stay in the... More

Doolin hostel was my first hostel experience and I couldn't have asked for better! To start, the staff are so accommodating and helpful with questions. The manager helped me arrange a horseback riding trek and gave me directions to the stable! Great coffee, tea, and scones, muffins, sandwiches, pizza, and treats for purchase. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and... More
