Stayed in the Rainbow hostel years ago in a lovely private room upstairs, now those nice quiet rooms with the view are separated from the rest of the hostel and for staff use, which seems like a poor business decision. Also, staff staying downstairs close to the front door would make the place feel more secure.

I really really loved this place. I've never stayed in a hostel before and it was way better than I expected! Beautiful people working and staying there, beautiful surroundings and amazing food in the town centre. Staff couldn't do enough for you, I will be returning very soon!!

WOW, WOW and WOW again ! What a great Hostel ! The Hostel is indeed 1,5 kilometers away from Dingle, but that makes it so lovely. (The staff bring you in Town with the car) You have really all in this hostel: A great and big kitchen, with all paraphernalia. There is a lovely piano in the sitting room, too. Comfortable beds and clean room's and shower's. But the best is the staff. They are sitting with you in the evening at the campfire, drinking beer, make music....GREAT!

The staff was nice but not that good informed about possible activities. Some details of the house, such as lamps in the kitchen or the air ventilator in the shower were very very dirty.

Great hostel, Manager was very helpful and friendly. Really good atmosphere in the hostel. Only negative is the last few hundred meters of the walk home in the dark. (Which obviously the hostel can do nothing about)

Nice hostel, a little outside town but handy shuttle bus to drop you in town (or a 20min walk). Beds not very comfortable - no springs in mattress and bed linen not very new. Curtains not very good either - a dark room is nice.

Rainbow Hostel is the best! 15 minute walk from the center of town, quiet, beautiful, perfect. No breakfast, but the kitchen is great. It also attracts a really great group of people, so you'll meet awesome folks - both the staff and other guests. It doesn't really have security (no locks or monitoring of who is coming and going), but I never found that to be a problem - it feels completely safe. Thanks for the awesome stay, guys - I'll be back!

There was no heating though it was very cold and the rooms were very dirty, the bed sheets are not washed regularly and the bathrooms were filthy as well. Glad I stayed only one night!

No lock on our bedroom door, and no heating. The manager explained to us that the small stove in the common room was "enough" to heat the whole place. Moreover, our room was full of dust, spiders and bugs, and the windows in the common bathroom stayed open all night...

This hostel was our favorite in all of Ireland! Beautiful!! Just a quick 10-15 min walk to city centre but enough in the countryside to enjoy the quiet. Gorgeous little cottage with a great kitchen and wood stove. The family that operates the facilities is very friendly and helpful.

A bit too far out of town for old walkers like myself, but fine for those in good shape. The staff was friendly and responsive, and the family room we stayed was cheerful, quiet and clean
