Hostel was okay, convenient location just outside Donegal town centre, with good and easy parking. Staff were friendly and welcoming, however it was difficult to find them to check in and out. No security features in rooms - lockers would have been nice. Bathrooms were okay but not fantastic.

Lovely hostel, with great location in Westport, just a couple of minutes walk into the town centre. A nice place to rest after climbing Croagh Patrick! Parking was good. Lovely breakfast in the morning with homemade brown bread was a great touch.

An absolutely lovely hostel. This was my second visit and everything was as great as the first time. Charlie and Abi are incredibly friendly and helpful. Everything is very clean, facilities are great, location is ideal. My favourite hostel from 10 months of travelling Europe.

Really convenient if you're using Victoria coach station - maybe not so much for a longer stay in London. 15 bed dorm was pretty roomy. Staff very friendly.

Nice hostel, definitely one of the better YHA's I've stayed in. Beds are a bit short, but this seems to be common in YHA hostels. Great location if you're coming by train, but still an easy walk into the centre & bus station.

Okay hostel. Staff were nice & great at organising dinners/nights out. Was annoying that when you paid for the linen you only got a pillowcase and one sheet, so you had to use the quilt without any cover.

Really nice hostel with a very homey feel. Easy walk from train station. Staff were helpful and friendly. Only issue was the floor in my dorm was incredibly loud and squeaky so it was impossible to walk around without disturbing people.

Nice hostel in great location. Beds were really uncomfortable though. Annoying to have the lockers in reception and not in or near the dorms. Plus having to pay for them seemed unnecessary. There was only one bathroom for my entire floor for the first day/night while the other was being repaired. Really needs to be more bathrooms. Breakfast was good.

Was an okay stay. Location is great, super convenient to the train station and for sightseeing. Rooms were okay - could have been more bathrooms. The bathrooms weren't particularly clean and smelled incredibly bad. Was a bit smoky as well, even in the non smoking areas.

Fine hostel. Not much of a common room though. Lockers in room were a bit too small and the locks didn't work properly on all of them. Beds were a little squeaky and my mattress was terrible. But location was good, staff were nice, good laundry, good wifi. I wish they would put soap in the bathrooms/sinks though.

Okay hostel. Staff were nice, but I didn't like that the common room (only place you could use the wi-fi, & where breakfast was served) allowed smoking. The whole hostel smelled of smoke. No lock on the dorm rooms and no lockers inside so no way to secure valuables. Location was okay, easy to find and not too bad a walk into the city centre. Wouldn't stay there again.

Really great hostel, easy walk from the train station and sights of Florence. Only issue were my room mates on the final night - they were screaming and shouting and arguing in and around the dorm until about three in the morning. Apparently security was called but nothing seemed to happen. Other than that, a fantastic stay.
