A good hostel in a great location near beach. Bed was comfortable and shower was hot. Plenty of places to eat with Waves being really good. Tables in dining room consisted of 2 picnic tables so could be better. Wifi was non-existent on ipad or phone, even though I was 10 feet from router. Still waiting for my change as they don't take cards. Staff stated they would be right back with it but was never seen. All in all a great location with plenty of facilities nearby.

Great place, only a little confusing when it comes to booking it for tents (they don't have tents, just a small place in the backyard to camp for about 10 Euro). Besides that, WiFi doesn't work very good, unfortunately, but both issues are not a bummer at all, the place is gorgeous and staff is marvelous! The beach, mountains and dunes are divine, one of the best spots I've seen in Ireland!

Staff is friendly, location is great. Room was really tiny even if it's a hostel, but worth the price for a night.

Sligo is gorgeous! This hostel's staff are excellent, especially Adam, who took us on a spectacular bike tour of the area. The hostel itself is bright and affordable. It's right next to the beach, beside Knocknarea, and in the shadow of Ben Bulben. If you're thinking of escaping from Dublin for a few nights and seeing a gorgeous, non-touristy part of the Irish countryside, this is the place to go.

We stayed one night and enjoyed it very much! Small breakfast of cereal and toast. Within 2 minutes walking time to the ocean. Next to a lot of restuarants and pubs. Shells is a tasty cafe. The hostel gives a discount on seaweed baths at Voya, which is a must if you visit Strandhill. Very friendly staffed. I really enjoyed the atmosphere.

We were told there would be a very basic breakfast (bread, butter, tea, coffee) when we arrived but next morning none of these were available. We had to take care of turning on the heating ourselves (after having to wake someone up) at night. I was very cold, needless to say. Additionally the place was very dirty in general, beer cans, socks and (hopefully unused) toilet paper could be found rather easily in the hostel's public areas. Very expensive from what it delivers.
