Clean with good sized rooms, more like a guest house than a hostel.. Host was helpful i would come here for a quiet break, definitely not a party hostel as it s family run! Brilliant location right by the centere of Dingle town!

We had a private room for the three of us at 17 euro each, for the money you can't get better value, all the basic things you need and parking next to the building, 3 minute walk to get to the town and have yourself a pint

Went to book our accommodation in Dingle a bit too late and all the BnBs were sold out so decided to give Lovett's Hostel a try, we were pleasantly surprised, most of the rooms were private which was very nice. BnB was excellently situated for exploring Dingle with easy parking right outside. Although breakfast is not included there is a... More

A tiny, but cosy family hostel situated right next to the cliffs and beaches of Dingle. The lady and her daughters were nice people, helpful, and welcoming; they gave us some advice on the beaches of Dingle and the town itself. Everything was tidy and warm. I loved the house and would recommend it to anybody traveling to Dingle.

We spent one night there, the location is great because it is just next door to the center and a supermarket, the place is quite clean but I will not recomand this place. The owner is rude and kind of scary, she almost shut the door at our faces when we tried to ask her a few questions about the... More

I spent 2 nights here with 2 friends. The hostel is a few minutes walk from the centre of town, and is close to the coastline and close to a well-stocked service station (where you could get hot food etc). Its a basic hostel, we found it clean and functional. The owner is a nice lady, very dry humour but... More

I have stayed at hostels all over the world and this was the worst. The lady is so rude. We were about to give her our passports but she just said 'You can just pay me now'. She didn't offer us any chance to ask any more questions, she just went into her room and stayed there. This lady does... More

I found the facilities sparse and minimalist. While the facilities were poor the owner really needs to have a good look at her manner as its confrontational at best. I felt that my interactions with her put me in bad form for the night and made me determined to book well in advance so as to avoid such a place... More

the location is very good and the rooms are clean enough, BUT the owner of the place needs to have a good hard look at her self, talk about a cranky old bag, she shouldn't be in hospitality, and the power sockets didn't work...
