    We were here for only one day and we didn't have any problems. Took a while for someone to open the hostel for us though, we arrived in the afternoon and the place was deserted. The lady at the neighboring pub told us to go to the back and knock. Facilities were enough and as advertised. Located right in front of the Connemara park and the bus stop is also right there.
