They desperately need more outlets around the hostel and blinds for the windows in the shared dorms. The showers are one-temperature, timed push-button ones. Otherwise, the hostel is very clean, has two cozy kitchens, comfy beds and plentiful bathrooms. Lots more groups, families and older guests, which didn't lend itself well to a typical youth hostel atmosphere. Nearest market or eatery is 25 min walk away. Super helpful, nice staff. A decent stay in Dingle.

Staff was sufficiently friendly. The location is left unsecured at night, so the only line of security is the lock to the room's door. Bathrooms came off as kind of grungy, probably because I used them after others and walked into a damp floor that didn't drain off properly. The showers took a long time to heat up and are the push button style that are super annoying to use. Didn't use the kitchen or facilities. I'm glad to say they recycle.

This was an average stay. The Hostel is a 25 minute walk away from the town, and there aren't even sidewalks part of the way, which seemed a bit unsafe. The walls are very thin, and you can hear all the campers outside at night. Also, you have to pay in cash, which was not clear when booking. However, the beds were clean and comfortable, and the price was fair. Overall, I would not choose again, but it's not a horrible last-minute option.

A good, quiet hostel. Close to town, but a bit of a walk. The upstairs family room had no window coverings, so it was light in the room until 11pm and then again at 5am.

I was only able to stay one night and was sorry it wasn't longer. This hostel is fabulous, you could tell immediately upon arriving that it is well maintained, safe, clean, and simply lovely.

A lovely hostel just outside, walking distance, of town. It has one of the best kitchens with lots of windows, plenty of facilities and tables. The room was adequate, with a comfortable bed, and warm doona. The single toilet upstairs was having problems so it meant going downstairs to the toilet. Apparently it was going to be fixed that day. The showers were only downstairs, multiple showers in a room. But overall, it was a very pleasant hostel with lots of room for camping in the lawns.
