Wonderful hostel with a marvelous view and a very cozy atmosphere. The living room area is perfect for meeting people and to get into conversation with other hostel guests and the hostel owner is very nice and helpful with all your questions. If we ever come back to Donegal we will certainly come back to Malinbeg,

Great place in a beautiful location and possibly the best hostel we've ever stayed in!

Excellent hospitality on arrival. One of the best hostels we've stayed in. Clean, modern and homely. Real homely vibe with the fire lighting and been able to cook in a proper kitchen. Location was beautiful and quiet. We all wanted to stay longer.


Great small hostel in enchanting village, very tidy and cosy. The owner is super friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it.


So warm and cosy! Our host was waiting for us, a fire in the chemney. Clean and cosy room, big kitchens, wonderful view on the Atlantic and about 20 minutes from Slieve League! Had a great time there.


The owner Frank was so welcoming and helpful. I've worked in one of the best hostels in the world and stayed in more than 40, but this one is the tidiest/nicest one I have ever seen! Our lovely double room had a big bathroom and a sea view. In the evening the guests and Frank were having a lively chat sitting around the fire and since there is no phone coverage everyone was actually talking instead of flicking through their phones. This really made our stay and we will most definitely stay again
