Thank Linda!


Barebones in every respect, plus boiler not working so cold shower & no heating on very bad weather day. On such a day, heating should be on sooner than default 7pm start. Partner developed a very rare cold as a result of not being able to thaw from a cold wet day's cycling. Manager aware of problem but not aware engineer hadn't successfully fixed it until I advised.

Great hostel, really nice atmosphere. Linda and her husband are extremely hospitable, they make you feel home.


Manager was very rude about the door


Great people in charge of the hostel. Very helpful and kind with clients. The kitchen is very well equiped with every thing you could need and is quite big.

I loved my stay and felt very welcomed :)


The staff was absolutely lovely. She went out of her way to help me get onto a tour bus that only runs if you have 4 or more people. She rounded up the other travelers and made it happen. Above and beyond. Loved my stay here!


It spend a great time in Donegal with Linda our hostel mummy. She is a really lovely person and we felt very welcome.


Linda was so nice when we arrived. It is a bit far outside from town but we had a car so it wasnt a problem at all. Cooking facilities were there and a nice lounge with a TV and fire made it all cozy.
