    I simply loved my stay here! Linda is an exceptional host and made me feel home from the very first second which was exactly what I needed after a long day of hiking the gorgeous area. The hostel is clean, cozy and full of good vibes. There are beautiful spots to sit outside and admire the stars on a clear night. It's one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Thanks, Linda. I'll visit again!

    Really enjoyed my two day stay at the Donegal Independent hostel. Linda was a super friendly host. Also has a beautiful garden and she even gave me some cuttings when I left. It's very difficult for hosts under the current Covid restrictions but Linda took it all in her stride. Will definitely stay there again.

    Linda was seriously the BEST!! Very accommodating and friendly. You can tell immediately that she LOVES what she does. She sent us to a pub in town that we had an absolute BLAST in and I can honestly say that our stay in Donegal was one the best nights we had in our two weeks in Ireland. I would refer family, friends, and perfect strangers to this town and to this hostel. This is where you will get a TRUE Irish experience.

    I imagine this location is trickier if you're traveling without a car, being outside the city centre by a mile or so, but the fact that it's outside town makes it ideal in my book. Quiet, peaceful location, with lots of free parking. A main sitting room with a fireplace and a sizable kitchen for self-catered meals? The friendliest and kindest innkeepers to give advice on where to go and what to see in Donegal (both the town and the county). I can't recommend this spot highly enough!

    Very cute hostel, nice facilities, very good price for the double bedroom, it's a good 15mn walk to town, but it's a nice walk along the river

    I stayed in the hostel for 2 nights with a group of 4 friends. We stayed all in one room so that was particularly nice, especially because the room had a private bathroom. I don’t have enough words to describe how nice, friendly and helpful the owner was for us. Not only during the reservation she was amazing, but her recommendations of places to go were the cherry on the top! The only minor downside of the hostel is the distance to the town centre, around 1km.
