    We were only there for the night but wish we could’ve stayed longer! The staff were all very helpful, the beds were comfy, and there were lots of amenities.

    Very Good

    Friendly staff, good facilities and great location in the centre of Ennis, with parking nearby. The atmosphere suffered from large groups of obnoxious teens on guided tours during my visit, but I think this would be better normally. The dorms themselves were fine, but could use lockers for guests to store their belongings securely. I also think the kitchen closed too early in the morning for travellers wanting to do their own thing for breakfast. All in all, I would stay again given the price.

    One bathroom for the whole floor. Buy towels for 2 euro. Not exactly a superb place to meet travelers. More so just a place to sleep.
