Lovett's Hostel
Ranked #19 of 22 Specialty Lodging in Dingle
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We were greeted by the daughter of the hostel owner and struck by her maturity and professionalism as she checked us in and showed us to our room. When we met the hostel owner she made us feel secure, comfortable, and welcome. Lovetts Hostel feels more like a guesthouse and is a nice reprieve from rowdy youth hostels. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and have access to real bathrooms/showers/etc. Within easy walking distance to all of Dingle and with a view of the Harbour, Lovetts was the perfect place to end our trip to Ireland. We highly recommend it!

Upon arrival I arrival I noticed there was no reception area. Got checked into my room by a 6 year old which was shocking. The room itself was cold, no working sockets for charging my phone. Which was needed as I was on a working trip. Bed sheets were thin and cold for time of year! The cranky woman that burst into the room both mornings was just unnecessary and shocking! People need privacy and why she burst in is beyond me! No drinks or tea or coffee allowed in the room. Over all the decor was like an old Irish house outdated by 100 years. No parking either. No one there to check us out either upon leaving.

Room Tip: Dont stay there!!!

The rooms were lovely, clean as was the bathroom. Owner not terribly friendly, as it really is more of a family run bed and breakfast, you'd expect to feel more at home there than in a hostel but we were really not made to feel welcome at all.
I'd stay there again though, because it's good value and near to the center of town.

Room Tip: No bathroom located on floor with the six bed dorm. Ask for a room in the front as you can see the o...
