My friends and I were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of accommodations at the Doolin Hostel. I always thought hostels were sort of dumpy, loud, makeshift places but our superior ensuite room was small but spotless, had lots of outlets, it was quiet at night, and unbelievably inexpensive. The beds were not my favorite - no pillowtop mattress or... More

We had a quad room and it was very comfortable and clean. The location was ideal - easy walking to the pub for dinner and music. Also a great location for exploring the Cliffs of Moher. The staff was very friendly & the cafe nicely stocked. Breakfast was included although we were surprised, but not in a bad way, that... More

Had a family room here and was the first time ever at a "hostel". Our family room had 5 beds and a full bath, breakfast was included, and the staff are as friendly as they come. Also very short walk to Doolin and the Doolin Pier. And of course the hotel price was the best!!

Very clean! Very comfortable! No complaints, even the breakfast! Although quite basic it was a very reasonable price, located in a cute little village , was fun taking a walk and doing a little shopping.

Stayed in a family room in the hostel. It was class, so quiet. Facilities were great and the staff running the establishment were so friendly but yet so efficient. Nothing seemed to be a bother. Will definitely be back to this hostel in the future, several times I hope.

Stayed here for one night in June. Lovely cosy hostel with a friendly family feel. You can tell everyone who works there really cares. The free breakfast was lovely and the room was clean and comfortable. The only drawback was the shower in our 6 person dorm. As you were unable to control the temperature it started out freezing and... More

I was here for the folk festival, really nice clean hostel. The vibe is friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good - sets you up. I liked the mixed age group in the hostel and the fact that you got a good nights sleep. The other occupants in the room were respectful of other people in terms of noise etc. A... More

Ending our Two-week Ireland trip at the Doolin Hostel was very satisfying. Our private room, filled with functional ikea furniture, was comfortable and had a wonderful view.
