For a hostel in a tiny farm village in the middle of nowhere it's pretty nice! We stayed there on a Paddywagon Tour, but since our group were the only people staying here at the time, the staff graciously allowed us to split up into smaller groups, instead of trying to cram us all in two rooms: four people could...

It's a hostel; that's the best way I can describe it. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm with my Paddy Wagon group (only 5 of us were in the room and it was very large) which had one ensuite bathroom. Not storage lockers in the room. While I would say it averages fairly safe, we were there when... More

+ We stayed here for one night and enjoyed especially the friendly and courteous staff. + The hostel is very central and not far from the next store. + And the beds are clean! + Coffee and tea is for free the whole day. - The house and the rooms are very ordinary and cold

The greeting we got wasn't quite so welcoming, but alright to cope with. Not sure why she bothered to hunt down the key though. The lock was broken, so anyone had access to our room at all times. Chatting to a friendly member of staff the next morning we could however see that grumpyness isn't a key requirement to work... More

A great hostel that'll make you enjoy your journey in the Irish countryside! The place is clean, cute, confortable, quiet and spaced. Towels are available, kitchen is neat and there is a lovely cozy living room where you can relax. Too bad the shower debit is not strong at all, otherwise, I had a great time at the Annascaul's Paddy's... More

From my experience here, this hostel, has a lot to offer. As a solo traveller, this hostel offered the best of every world to me. Its location is set in the countryside, underneath the rolling hills of green fields, surrounded with sheep and nature. This makes it much different from your average hostel.Its quiteness is also appealing and this gave... More

I can't say I spent much time in my room, but it was a clean and decent place to spend the night. I stayed in a 6-person room during a Paddywagon tour, with four other girls. The room had an en suite; the shower had hot water and decent pressure. The two staff members at the hostel also doubled as... More

What a shame. Annascaul is such a nice little village and this hostel is situated in such a nice little house. But it's is so rundown and so dirty. The kitchen is a health risk, the stove is covered in old dirty grease, also the floor was full of oil and grease. You can't use the dishes, because they are... More

I stayed in this hostel as part of a Paddy Wagon Tour, it was the last hostel of the trip and definitely the worst : the rooms were ensuite but the bathroom was really dirty, there was even some mould on the ground and inside the shower. Moreover, it was noisy as the walls were really thin. The kitchen was... More

Stayed here as part of a paddywagon tour. Staff were fairly helpful. Great common room. Our shared room was pretty basic, getting a bit old and shabby and the power socket was hanging out of the wall, someone had tried to tape it all back together, but beds were clean and comfy. Had an ensuite bathroom but no other toilets... More
