I was a bit dubious about staying in a hostel as a family of four, but this place was superb. Our ensuite family room was super comfortable and clean, as good as any hotel. Everything was thought of, with hanging space for clothes, a spacious bathroom and even the decor was lovely. There was a lovely cafe, a well-stocked kitchen... More

A fantastic hostel that provides a budget hotel experience. The private room was well decorated, clean, cozy and comfortable. The perfect location. Lots of parking space. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The BEST continental breakfast. Quality food and a range of options. The cafe is also wonderful. Delicious hot chocolates and pizzas.

I didn't stay in the hostel. I just ate in the cafe one morning. The delicious cappucino that I had brought me back there for two more the next day!! It really was that good! The hostel itself looks very clean and I will check it out on a future visit to Doolin!

We stayed here late last year over the weekend. It was the first time most of us actually stayed in a hostel. We got our own multi bunk room which was en suite. I thought it was very comfortable and clean. We only wanted somewhere to sleep after a night out in Doolin area. We were very suprised to see... More

Big room, friendly staff, good location Breakfast was only for the sweet tooth and it was difficult to sit together as a family. The common room was the cafe at the same time which is ok, but the door was always open. And during bad weather it was pretty chilly in there.

Stayed here with my partner in a 12 bed mixed dorm. This was the first time I've ever stayed in a dorm with other people (there was literally nothing else available around) and it was a good experience. The hostel is lovely. Very clean. The cafe and reception area have a good atmosphere. Staff are most helpful. We got a... More

Stayed here on one of my surfing trips. Lovely hostel, really friendly staff and the place is completely accessible if you're an early riser or someone who falls into the bed well after midnight. The beds themselves are really comfortable and each bunk has its own reading light and a couple of plugs to charge phones etc. Nice little cafe... More

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...
