Enjoyed this hostel. The rural location and the bar is great. However the fact the showers were cold was a major issue. We were down for the Achill Half Marathon like a lot of the others guests and we all had cold showers after the race, it was terrible.

Good Hostel, would stay again and recommend. Great base for exploring San Fran, the staff and literure around the place were helpful too. The pancakes in the morning give a nice American feel to the place

Good hostel, was really there very little bar 3am -10am both nights. They did however allow a random lad one my mates bed, whiched caused a comic issue at 3am in the morning. Think the hostel was intentionally overbooked, given the busy weekend that was in it

Decent hostel to explore and shop in Manhattan. Only having bathrooms in the rooms in a pain in the ass, especially when your in a 12 bed dorm. Should have a communal bathroom on each floor. Need an elevator badly. And they charged me an excessive $15 for losing the platic key card that probably costs 20cent to buy. Easy to get to using subway 2

If I had the choice again I would have hoped on the Papeete LA flight rather than hang around Tahiti for a few days. Not backpacker friendl at all. So expensive. Go there when u can afford to enjoy it. Stayed in Teamo Hoslel in Papeete the 1st night which is reasonable value, but there is nothing in Papeete bar an airport. The Pueu Village Hotel is a 3 Bungalows on the seafront about 70kms from Papeete. The bungalows have a double bed, Bathroom and a little kithchen. They are nice and well kept, but crying out for a TV. There is nothing really in Pueu Village to do if u havent hired a car. The family are very nice and gave us a lift to the SuperMarktet to pick up supplies. The isnt anything to do really in the resort bar chill out and look out over the lagoon. There is a beach about 45mins from the Hotel, but not a very nice one really. If u have your own transport or enjoy sitting around in the one spot for hours on end, then his place could suit you. One other thing was the pick up service. The owner mailed me pripor to arrival offering a pick up from Papeete which we opted to take. It wasnt until check out that he informed us that the return pick up service would cost us eur125 (15,000 PFR). We were slightly shocked by this amount.
