“Good Hostel”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

We (my boyfriend and me) stayed at our journey through Ireland one night in Buncrana.
Everything there was very clean and the woman at the reception was very helpful!
It was possible to wash our clothes in the laundry room!
Unfortunately no one was really able to explain us the functions of the dryer! Thats really bad when you don't use dryers at home!
Unfortunately the staff hadn't much information about Buncrana and the sights there.
I had also bad luck with the staff at the Tourist Office in Buncrana. They seemed to be not that interested in finding a resolution how to get from Buncrana to Malin Head at a Saturday. We were really disappointed!!!
Also there was big noise at night because someone screamed for hours trying to sing while playing guitar. It was very annoying!
We wanted to check out at the next morning and had to wait HOURS because NO one was there. Another woman at the Hostel wanted to check out also and missed her bus! Sometime the night-watchman appeard sleeply and we were able to check out.

Well, normally I am really tolerant with these unlucky things but we had plans for the day and a noisy night and a late watchman aren't that conducive for travelling people.

My hint for the Hostel:
Choose more precisely your staff, inform them about the area and try to change the strategy of the Tourist Office to a better organized and more informative.

I think it is a very good idea to put a Hostel into a Mill - and it is unpleasing to say that it could be more heartwarming and familial and an assemblage point for travellers through Inishowen.
I hope you can take that feedback to become a better Hostel :) It is just meant well.

3 of us stayed at the mill in early august this year (2011). the staff were very friendly and helpful both on the phone and in person. the hostel itself is the winner. an old mill building has been renovated with a new wing for the hostel. very clean, very spacious and amenities are plenty. kitchen is spot on. within easy walk and stumble to centre of Buncrana. And the garden and stream out the back make a refreshing morning stroll. Highly recommend by us all.
