not a good option for youths... almost everybody was older or on family trips

Dear Mauricio Thank you for your review and pointing out that we cater for all ages and families who are a big market for us. We do cater for a lot of younger people but would not be a hostel you would consider for partying, but rather to get a good nights sleep before you go hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing etc. or exploring the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher and Burren. And for the best lively atmosphere walk 2 minutes down the road for live music and some of the best pubs in Ireland.

The hostel was the most comfortable I stayed at in 5 weeks of traveling. Location was great and the staff were helpful and polite.

Ein niedliches Hostel in toller Lage. Das Personal ist super freundlich und hilfsbereit auch wenn mal etwas unerwartetes passiert. In diesem Hostel merkt man deutlich, dass dort Menschen arbeiten, die Spaß an Ihrer Arbeit haben. Auch das Frühstück ist wirklich gut! und die Zimmer gut ausgestattet und sauber!

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were greeted almost everytime we came in the door. The place was extremely clean and quiet and the breakfast in the morning was phenomenal. It is also only a thirty second walk away from everything. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone!
