Lahinch Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The Lahinch Hostel was a really great place to stay! The owner set us up with surfing lessons and was overly accommodating. The beds were clean and comfortable, the showers warm, the facilities well kept. The rooms were small, but definitely manageable.

I stayed in this hostel for a week end, i was in Lahinch for surfing, and they provide a boards storage place and hot showers when you dress your wetsuit off. The breakfast was as normal for an hostel but they let all the stuff all day long, so if you feel hungry you can eat during the afternoon. The room was confortable and clean and the bathrooms too.
The owner is really kind and provided me all the infos I needed, and when I asked him if I could use changing room and showers after my morning surf, the checkout day, he let me do it.
I really apreciate my staying and I strongly recommend this hostel.

I stay here every time I visit lahinch. Perfect for surfers with gear (board room out back + shower facilities ideal) staff are always friendly. Never had a problem. Always had a great time. Seems to be a bit of work going on at the back. Caused no inconvenience at all.

We decided to pay a last minute short break in Lahinch before back to school routine ! Hostel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. We had a room with double bed and a set of bunks - absolutely suitable for our party of 2 adults and 2 children. Bedding, carpets etc v clean. Showers and toilets are communal and were equally clean and fresh! Location perfect for surfing / beach and eating out and enjoying the wonderful music and Craic lahinch offers. The kitchen was clean and had everything needed to make all meals! Would Defo recommend :-) and will return again soon

Lahinch is a lovely place and the hostel has a Great location, and is very tidy & clean. Very cheap. Lovely ghowers. Short walk to the beach, shorter walk to the pubs. It's all good. Friendly service too. I would recommend to any one. Two thumbs up!

I stayed in this hostel as part of a large group of college students and could not have been happier with the experience. The staff encouraged having a bit of craic and although we had every intention of cleaning up the next morning (I swear!) they beat us to the punch and had done all the work before we woke up. Cannot wait to stay there again next year!!
