In an akward location between industrial area and port, though only 15 mins walk from bus & rail station with luggage. - When I arrived the manageress was dealing with difficult customers and came across as a little stern and unfriendly. (She isn't but wasn't the best first impression) - it's a bit of a rambling building but comfortable beds - not bunks and efficient hot showers and well designed bathrooms. Perfect for a couple of nights stop over in Sligo.


Avarage hostel for the price. Cold enough in room.


I really couldn't believe the value and comfort that I got for the low price I paid. Would definately stay again and really recommend Harbour House. Staff were extrememly friendly and helpful and full of local knowledge to guide me for a night out and also about local amenities for mountain biking the following day. Price and all round experience was great for a student like me who just likes to escape from the norm, now and then! Thanks!

There was never any one around who worked there, and the wifi didnt reach the rooms.


The staff was excellent. I can't fault them whatsoever.Nice homely lounge area. I didn't like my room that much. It felt cramped and cold and I hated the colour on the walls.Maybe a neutral colour and pictures on the wall would help. There was a non-working TV in the room. On the positive side, there was plenty of shelves & hangers to unpack the bag. Also Rooms have to be locked from the inside at night....That's a high risk t take in the event of an fire.


Very nice Hostel, very kind staff, we had booked a room with shared bathroom, but as there was a football team staying there the same night, they gave us an ensuite room for the same price! You can join the city centre walking, and the hostel is just on the way to all the attractions. (Ross Point, Strandhill...) I recommend!
