Great stay in this hostel. Very clean and good atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful - especially Jamila who gave me great advice about cycling, live music and a lovely restaurant close to the hostel. Definitely recommend! :-)

I was worried that I would have a hard time finding the hostel from the pier. SO not the case. Get off ferry, walk up the pier a bit, look to the left. Walk to building that says "HOSTEL" That easy. Small place, but quaint and intimate. Side building houses kitchen/eating area (so you have to walk outside for 10 seconds. The island is really friendly, and the village is very easy to get around. Tour guides are very willing to accommodate and are a blast to talk with about the local area.

Very friendly staff and loved the location of the hostel! I would consider turning the heating a lot more as it was quite cold or offering more portable heaters. Also I would suggest introducing secure lockers in rooms.

I loved my stay at this hostel. The 3 women working there made me feel right at home. The kitchen is huge and the location can not be beat. I got to chat with people from all over the world . I wish more hostels were as laid back, fun, and welcoming as this one.

This place is awesome, it is a little pricey but given the amazing staff, awesome atmosphere and excellent kitchen and facilities, totally worth it. Thanks for a great stay :) Meg.

Probably the biggest kitchen I've seen in a hostel yet! I had a great stay.

Kilronan hostel is nothing special, but it has an excellent location (right next to the ferry dock) and friendly staff. I was a bit annoyed by their laissez-faire attitude though: I paid an advance on Hostelworld, but they charged my the full price, with the explanation that 'they don't do business with such commerical websites', and even though I booked a female dorm, there was a man sleeping there. These things considered, I thing 25 euros a night is really pricey.

Well, I love my stay at the hostel. Its just the heater wasn't working at night and it was quite cold at night.

Close to the port, clean, have breakfast. Friendly staff. A bit damp (because it's close to the sea). Would stay again.
