Stayed here for a few days, wasn't impressed. On arrival the woman at reception was very rude. We went to our room which was too warm, and very cramped. They had over booked our room so wasn't enough beds. Wifi wouldn't work so asked at reception desk, wasn't much help and had to use data. Common room closes at 11... More

Stayed there Saturday night and went to straight to bed when we got in. woke the next day to be told we had been making noise and weren't getting our deposit back. They did this to 2 other groups as well. All I know is we didn't make any noise and we didn't hear any noise either. Staff were very... More

Went to Westport on a stag. A mannerly group that caused no trouble anywhere. You pay 25 euro in the event of damage to any of the rooms which is fair. There was approx 17 in our group so we had the 2 rooms at the end of the corridor. On checkout we were told our deposit was not refundable... More

I didn't get a good first impression of the place, the girl at the reception seemed a bit new and shy, so she wasn't that helpfull and welcoming, which is usually why I love staying in hostels. The hostel was clean and the rooms nice and the breakfast was good, but Tom definitely made a difference! He was so helpful... More

The location is good, the staff is really helpful, and there's a well-equipped kitchen BUT you cannot expect for any worse bathrooms. At first the bathrooms looked tidy and spacious, but once you've used them, you're gonna cry. There are 3 bathrooms for women but only 1 bathroom can be locked. There are no space to hang your stuffs (Towel,... More

I stayed there four nights during the annual Westport traditional/bluegrass festival (which was wonderful), and with the exception of Saturday night where I had to move into an 8 person girls' dorm (fairly chaotic), I loved every minute of it. Tom, Anthony and the rest of the staff and volunteers (whose names I didn't get) were the nicest, and they... More

Good hostel, calm and silent in a beautiful stone building. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast is great as they have self-made bread, and the bathrooms / showers were one of the finest I've ever seen on a hostel. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The beds are not top quality, and it gets a little chilly in the evening.... More

Our first impressions were very good and the guy at reception was very helpful and friendly. The 4 bed room was pretty spacious and clean. The bed was also comfortable. Very reasonably priced at €50 for two nights (fri&sat). They also required a 25€ deposit which was no problem either. The only problem was some individual vomited in the corridor... More

I have stayed here a number of times and will return in future. This hostel is centrally located in Westport and has public car parking nearby. Always is clean and tidy and the bathrooms have been recently refurbished. Staff have always been pleasant and helpful.
