This one surpassed all expectations! I would only stay in hostels if they all were like this!!!!

We stayed in a 2-bed dorm with toilet and shower en suite which as such is very comfortable. Alas we couldn't use the shower as it does not have a curtain, so the whole bathroom gets flooded when someone actually uses the shower. So what' s the use of that? It would be very helpful if this got changed.

Thank you for a nice start in our irland holiday. The hostel staff has been very nice and the room was good. The only bad thing was the small kitchen.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only problem I encountered was the shower rooms - the water ran from the shower area into the dry dressing area in front of the sinks which made it difficult getting dressed. A small stool placed in the shower rooms would have allowed me to sit down, dry my feet and put my trousers on without them trailing in the water.

We found this hostel rather stark and clinical and prefer somewhere more homely. The stainless steel bathrooms and décor seemed almost penal. I think this is just a matter of personal preference as the building is clean and secure and has a large dining room. There was a very friendly member of staff on duty when we left but the building itself would benefit from more colour and pictures/photos on the walls.

A very special word of thanks to Ann for making us so welcome and look forward to returning. She made us feel very much at home, was very informative and very helpful. We wish every success to the Errigal hostel.

Location and breakfast was good but the dorm beds are really uncomfortable, I would never stay in this hostel again for that very reason.

Great hostel and facilities. Only complaint is the layout of the rooms and positioning of the toilets and showers - it means that they're right on top of each other. Add the lack of windows or real air inlets to the bathrooms and it means that they are not the freshest in the world. Unavoidable but poor design from the start.
