    Linda was so fabulous and flexible with me! Halfway into my booking, I found a friend to fake a two day road trip with. She was extremely kind in letting me change the dates of my booking. The place itself is so clean, comfortable, I love the fireplace in the sitting room. Lovely walk through a fairy forest into town, and the perfect place to relax after hiking

    Our stay here was one of the highlights of our trip! It had a great almost B&B atmosphere. Linda was the best host for our night there, and full of conversation. The beds were comfortable, beautiful views, clean and spacious bathrooms as well. It was a quick habit into the the City Centre as well. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else in the area.

    I feel like I’ve joined the “I love Linda” fan club. The owner of the hostel has put a lot of love into this accommodation. She’s warm, welcoming and treats you like family. Definitely my favourite stay during my trip. The hostel was very clean, beds were comfortable and Linda will go out of your way to make sure you have a great time in Donegal. I’ll be back!

    Excellent hostel. I took a private en suite room. Lots of space, friendly staff and atmosphere. Short walk into the town. The sitting room area is very homely with an open fire. Large kitchen too - just bring your own breakfast!

    Linda (the host) was amazing! She was always happy to help with anything, give recommendations, or just to chat. The location is great, close enough to town to be within easy walking distance and far enough to have beautiful scenery. I hope to stay here again when I make my way back to Ireland.

    We really enjoyed our stay in Donegal. Linda is so kind and had wonderful tips for things to do in the area. We enjoyed hiking outside of Donegal and driving to the coast our second day. It's easy to walk into town from the hostel if you'd like to spend a night at a pub listening to music or enjoying a pint of Guinness. The kitchen facilities in the hostel are really great, too.

    The cleanest hostel I have ever been in (I've been to about 30). It felt like being in someone's home and the owners were so lovely. The kitchen and common areas were equipped and furnished beautifully and there was an open fire.
