Harbour House was a great escape from the busy city life of Dublin. The stay was wonderful with such welcoming staff and in the town of Sligo. I felt right at ease and at home with all the facilities, there are small spots for you to store your own food items and a kitchen where you can make your own meals if you wish. The staff also had wonderful recommendations on places to eat, visit, and go out in the evening.

This is a great hostel, it would be even better as the location was closer to the town centre.

Convenient location, just a short walk from the bus/train station and Sligo town centre. The rooms were clean, beds were in good shape (not sagging through or with springs poking you everywhere). I found the well-furnished kitchen and dining room with possibility of cooking meals and storing your own food supplies a plus. The living room provides a homey feel and makes it easy to meet other travellers. Staff were friendly and easy to get along with, very helpful as well.

Though there is nothing particularly wrong about this hostel, it fails consistently to excel in any areas. Located in an industrial suburb with nothing to recommend it, it's a considerable distance away from everything of interest such as restaurants, shops, buses and trains. There are no lockers, the kitchen is inadequately equipped, there are no organised activities, staff is hard to find much of the time. Good things are the WiFi, and the quiet. Nothing deal-breaking but you can do better.

We rang emailed to say we would be late and they had left keys for our room which was pleasing because unaware the staff would not be present. Did not see any staff in the morning. Hostel was clean and basic. We only stayed overnight so u unsure of location.

It was a clean room and the stuff was nice. I think it is a decent hostel for a low-cost trip.

Functional and friendly staff but overall a bit down market.

This hostel is a bit out of the way, in a commercial area of the town. If you have a car it's not a worry. But if you are having to walk everywhere, it wouldn't be the best place to stay. Cleanliness and facilities are great, the lady at the reception that we dealt with was very helpful and nice. Great night sleep, we were worried that it could be loud being in the commercial area, but it didn't worry us at all. Only a small tv room with about room for 5-6 people, large dining room.

Clean and quiet hostel. We were only there for one night, but I slept like a baby. You don't often get that in a hostel.

This was a very small hostel and there were just a few people staying there when we were there, even though it was June. However, we encountered no problems and even got free towels.

One can see the house used to be nice and welcoming, but unfortunately it is being kept in a very bad condition. Dirty room, unwashed bed sheets, smelly room and matrices, the bathroom has mold. The kitchen smelled so bad that we couldn't even drink a coffee in there, the smell was terrible and we felt sick. It says in the add they have hair dryer - actually no, nothing is provided, except for some towels (which we weren't sure they have been washed after the previous customers).
