Everything was great.


A pretty nice place to stay in Clifden, although soap in the bathrooms would have been nice. Otherwise staff were really friendly and helpful.


Hostel right in the center of town. Friendly staff, really fun and pretty town to spend a few days hanging out in.


About security,it was no problem for me but there was no key for room so I put "advance" But the hostel was good!

Why not leave your valuables with reception for safe keeping?

Thank you Sally for the nice comment.


Very nice hostel in a very nice village, with a very nice hostel's manager ! Great souvenirs of those 2 days !


We really enjoyed our stay in Killarney especially because of the kindness and efficiency of the staff. It was just wonderful ! Sean was smily and very helpful. The place was clean and silent at night. Thank you so much. We will come back !


A very pleasant stay - big, light and airy room, excellent location right in the centre of town and an exceedingly friendly and helpful host!


Really wonderful place to stay in Clifden, and the host does a great job of making sure you have everything you need to make your stay. Plus, there's a beautiful view from the back of the building! Clifden is pricey, but you won't find a better rate for a bed in town.


Well situated in Clifden. No breakfast available, would be better with one.


The staff are very welcoming, reassuring and pleasant, with great advice in abundance. I have no criticisms. This is a great hostel-and I have quite some experience around the world-to world standard.


Nice, quiet and clean bedroom. Great location in the city centre. Very nice staff


We had a really nice room with a wonderful view. The hostel was really quiet and a good possibility to stay in clifden

Basic budget accommodation. There is a kitchen where you can cook (you might wanna check what pots are available before you start ;) ). Rooms were clean, bathrooms not so much but not too bad either. Bus station is just two houses down so that's a plus. Staff was friendly and gave us so useful tips on the area.
