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.
This hostel overbooked me and did not tell me until I showed up for my reservation. They told me I had no bed but the hostel down the road had a bed for me. Thank goodness the other hostel Old Monastery had a bed for me!! Anyways I would not book here ever again. They also didn't seem very sorry and didn't offer a reason why there was a problem with my reservation until I asked and it was then they told me they had over booked.
Great location being right in Connemara National Park. Poor plug situation, no lock on the bathroom door, fine parking, more than just an overhead light would be good. Breakfast average. A bit awkward having to go into the bar and pay there.
This was a good hostel for what it was. It's located right by Diamond Hill and is walkable to Kylemore Abbey. Great location for exploring Connemara. The hostel was a bit dead when I arrived, but then again so was the town. I had a whole 6 person room to myself for one night. Staff was friendly though and the hostel seemed nice. I'd recommend it if you're staying in Letterfrack.
Travelling on my own but wanted my own room so needed to pay for a double, but pleasant room and very comfortable bed, a hairdryer would have been useful
