Myself and a few friends stayed there recently and we all agreed we'd never come back,
They overcharged us for the rooms, lied about how much they told us it would cost then expected us to pay 25 euro deposits that they hadn't mentioned before, It wouldn't have been so bad if we weren't teenagers and that we oviously didn't have very much money. They clearly took advantage of ripping us off any chance they got, After we paid the deposit and went to leave they forced us to pay for a different group that hadn't turned up by holding our credit cards, knowing it had nothing to do with us but was put under our name,They proceded to tell us that they could have gotten 40 euros for each person who missed out on the room because of it , in clear violation of Bord Failte regulations in regards to overcharging, The staff's compulsive lying, general ignorance, making no attempt to be morally correct really antagonised us all, When I lost my wallet and it was handed in they were petty enough to remove all my loose change as when I spoke to the man who found it he told me there was only a few euros left, The we're right and there's no point in arguing attitude really left a bad taste in my mouth. Even when we tried to enjoy ourselves and unwind we were told to shut up or we'd be kicked out by one of the staff members who clearly didn't understand English.
I strongly advise against this hostel especially if you are a young person as they will take advantage of you at every turn, The staff especially were extremely unhelpful ignorant and had a total lack of empathy with us.
