The owners are super nice, we booked 2 beds in a 5 beds room and they change the room for me and my friend to an empty one because there was free rooms. They also helped us with everything to make our day in Donegal much better :)

Great welcome by Linda, a really lovely happy person. Happy to help and accommodate us. There was few people staying so had a great night sleep. Really really warm at night. A little on outside of town but clear enough to walk.

While located just outside of town, well worth the trek. Great hosts and atmosphere. Hosts try to help everyone get to know each other. Sitting by the fire in the common area during a storm awesome.

We loved our stay at this hostel in Donegal Town. We stayed in many places in Ireland while on a roadtrip and this was by far the best value for our money. The rooms were clean and spacious, the staff was lovely, and the walk to town was only 8-10 minutes. The only downside was we didn't get wi-fi in our room; we had to go down to the living room to get internet service. Overall, a very very good hostel, highly recommend!

This was our very first ever experience of staying in a hostel and it was good. The only drawback was that the room was freezing. A little heat during the night would have been appreciated.

Absolutely lovely hostel with amazing owners who make each new batch of people coming in feel like family. I would come here every time I'm in Donegal. It's just been amazing staying here. Big kitchen, warm sitting place with fireplace.

Linda and Andy are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are nice and clean and quite spacious. We only stayed one night but would definitely go back there if we come back to Ireland. Thank you for your great hospitality!
