Great location. We liked it so much that we ended up staying an extra day. Very quaint inside, amazing view of the river outside. Free carpark. Our only complaint was that there wasn't any comfortable sitting room area. Everything was hard wooden benches.

We stayed at Allie River Hostel only 1 night and spent very little time at the facility but I was very pleased with the cozy and beautiful building. The hostess was very friendly and the common rooms seemed very comfortable. I would recommend this hostel

The hostel is really good place to stay if you go to Aran Island! Clean, big kitchen and lounge with a wood stove! I recommand for every age !

A clean and very cosy hostel. Friendly, welcoming stuff. Compared to other hostels rather expensive, but i guess for a touristy area it is ok. Doolin is a cute, small village, but with some nice pubs very alive. I definitly enjoyed my stay, i even stayed an extra night! It is definitly the place to stay when in Doolin!

I did not get wifi in the room, not even a towel for us. Even the soap there was very cheap, most of all water made.

Dear Guest, WiFi is available throughout the Hostel, maybe there was a ''glitch'' on the day, apologies if so. Towels are provided for a nominal fee as advertised on Hostelworld and this would have been told to you on arrival. Soap provided is of good quality and is not diluted. Robert, Owner

Really nice, cute hostel. Good location and the staff were really nice! However they had not changed the sheets only the pillowcase, but hopefully that was a one off!

Really nice hostel with a excellent atmosphere. Very willing stuff and nice guests. Compared to other hostels very clean kitchen! I really liked the nice garden with a river in front of the hostel. Perfect for group of friends, families and couples ;)

Great little hostel. Already recommended it to a fellow traveller! It's very cozy and right across the road from a great pub with live music. Stayed in the 7 mixed dorm and there was more than enough space :)

Great hostel, however we booked a double room with private ensuite, but the shower was well below par. It was a push button shower and the push button lasted for under a minute, so the water only came out in short bursts... Very terrible. Otherwise the beds were great and the location great

This is a cute little hostel, but they advertise free laundry. You can wash your clothes for free when the hostel is done using the washer, but the dryer is not free - I thought that was a bit of false advertising. It was humid outside and they continued to turn on the fireplace at night. It made the hostel very hot and uncomfortable to sleep. The location is great if you want to see the Cliffs of Mother and explore The Burren. However, I would recommend only spending one night in Doolin

Extremely good position close to best attractions of west Ireland, friendly atmosphere and excellent common kitchen with plenty of space and fires.

Doolin is a great place to stay overnight because of all the beautiful nature around and also the pub nearby has a really nice atmosphere. I was just a bit disappointed that a group of people in a hostel didn't bother about the sign in a hostel that said that there is quiet time after midnight and they were talking loudly in a common room which is close to dorms.
