The hostel has a lot of character (old mill), the staff was very accommodating and the overall atmosphere was very good. Bathrooms could be cleaner - shower cabins did not drain properly. The second night there was some commotion by some young residents and there was none to respond to it. Overall, an excellent place from where to explore Croagh Patrick, Westport House, and the county of Mayo.

Had a fantastic stay here! Staff was very helpful and friendly. Located right in the center of town. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!

Rooms are very basic and small though clean enough. The place could do with a bit of renovating, the hall leading to my rooms had an unpleasant musty smell, probably from the old carpets, the light just over the shower in the men's bathroom was not working and you had to shower in relative darkness. The kitchen was quite comfortable, clean and well equipped as well as pretty modern. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall I was happy enough but not terribly impressed with my stay.

I had a fantastic stay here! This place had the biggest and cleanest kitchen I've ever seen in a hostel and was open with the common room, which made it easy to meet lots of travelers. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. I highly recommend a stay here!

This hostel was wonderful! The staff was wonderful, the breakfast was delicious (the man in charge makes awesome muffins), and the location was right on the main drag. Two thumbs up!

Nice place all in all but could do with some improvement. Kitchen is huge, which is great but they are lacking in equipment. Good security on the doors but no room lockers. Atmosphere was a bit dull as they close reception at 11 and that then makes everyone move into main building. This causes a lot of noise.

Had a great time at this hostel, it was a bit quiet when I was there but they had just opened for the season so that is understandable. Thee were still people around and the staff was quite friendly. Beds were comfy!
