We had an enjoyable stay at the hostel which is located in a picturesque area. Paul was very welcoming and informative about local sights. There's a large well equipped kitchen & dining area and a cosy fire in the evening.

Valley House Holiday Hostel

Achill, Ireland

Helpful and freindly staff with good breakfast provided. Showers were hot. This hostel has seen better days and has a very tired and run down appearance. Needs a lot of work on repairing torn carpets, loose floorboards and no heating in the rooms at night to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

Tower View Lodge

Tralee, Ireland

Arrived at the hostel at 6.00pm. No one was at the premises. Phoned the owner on 2 local numbers with no answer. The 3rd number became an international connection to France where the owner was on holiday. No apology. Said she would get her friend Mike to come around. We waited until 7.00pm. No one turned up! We were forced to find alternative accommodation late in the evening. We consider that this behaviour is completely unprofessional and unacceptable. Do not book this hostel!

Very nice clean comfortable room. Warm welcome by manager. Refused credit card despite Hostelworld listing. Informed by husband of manager that "Tea making facilities were not provided as we had booked through Hostelworld & we were getting a good deal as it was" TV didnt work. At 7:15 am there was no hot water for a shower.Took 10mins to raise the husband of the manager who asked why we needed hot water so early. No apology given & waited 30mins for the hot water.A very beligerent attitude.

A very well managed hostel with friendly staff who man the front desk at all times. Clean room and ensuite. Quiet at night. Large lounge and dining room but kitchen a little small & cramped for size of hostel. Parking on site was handy. Easy to walk to town centre.

Cashel Hostel

Clean room in quiet hostel.Large comfortable lounge & big kitchen. The front desk is signed that it is attended from 8:30 am but at 900 am Patrick Joseph was not in attendance to reimburse us our Five Euros key deposit. We ran the bell to no avail & finally tracked down an employee who rang Patrick. He returned to the hostel in his car & refunded our money but no apology given despite being delayed by 30 minutes. No note was left at the desk explaining Patrick Josephs absence to hostellers.

The Old Presbytery

Wicklow, Ireland

Friendly welcome by hostel manager. Very good kitchen set up with cookers & tables but the fridge was completely inadequate for the numbers accomodated in the hostel. Small lounge positioned in the middle of the walkway for entry and exit. The manager is not on site therefore there was no control of noise at night & we had to go down the street to buy a can opener as the manager could not be contacted. Shower in our room was very unsighty siliconed completely around the square of the shower base

The Dublin Central Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

We were warmly welcomed by Ian who was very friendly and informative as were all the staff we met. Stayed 5 nights in a good location quiet and secure. Good kitchen facilities & the breakfast provided had a wide range of cereals and condiments. Free Wifi was a bonus and a comfortable lounge area with a range of books and DVDs to watch. Only minor negative was a bad smell outside our room which the hostel was attempting to deal with using an automatic air freshener.
