    Great hostel. Check in at the Doolin Inn across the street. Rooms were clean, each bed had its own outlet and lockable cage under the bed. Nice breakfast and common area with games to play. Great location--less than 5 minute walk to restaurant/pub and maybe a 10-15 minute walk to the Pier (where you can catch a boat to the Aran islands or Cliffs of Moher) and really cool rocky coastline you can walk around.

    Very good hostel. Everything is good, but the village has no stores to buy anything to cook or drink. Other than that it is a superb hostel. Clean, friendly staff, etc. Good breakfast. Good location, too.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The place was very clean, and the customer service was excellent. Casual and comfortable atmosphere. Not incredibly social, however there seemed to be a lot of solo or partner travelers of all ages. Great basic breakfast options.

    Nice hostel, kind of pricey. Large shared dorm, with only 2 private bathrooms. Atmosphere wasn’t great, but a really diverse group staying there. Young, old, tourists, travelers, etc. pretty clean. Nice boot drying room, and good location!

    Location is excellent, and the rooms were modern. Bathroom was extremely small. My only real concern was that you had to wash your own dishes after breakfast or whenever you had a cup of coffee or tea. Now I don't mind washing my own dishes, but I observed others that just rinsed off their dishes and put them away. Gross! I recommend washing your dishes before using them.
