    It was a wonderful experience to live in The Burren Hostel.The first reason why I chose it is because I thought it will be exhausted after Wandering over the Cliffs of Moher,and Doolin is the nearest city I can choose to have a rest.Secondly, the price of The Burren Hostel is really cheap;Thirdly,the atmosphere there is extremely relaxed,and the environment is quite;In addition ,the position is good as well,the nearest bus station is in 3 minutes walk.And you can go to Aran island conveniently

    We went to see the cliffs of moher and this is the nearest we could find and I am so glad we stayed there. Everything was perfect. Lovely quiet location and only 10 minutes drive to the cliffs. We bought tickets for the cliffs online for arriving between 9am and 10:55 for half price and kids under 16 are free. Very less people when we got there to take Lovely photos. Staff are very friendly and helpful. we were allowed in the kitchen for lunch after checkout in the morning How kind! will be bac

    This place is what a hostel should be. Small, quiet, friendly. The staff were awesome, warm, conversational. This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Areas that could be improved: WiFi only works at reception and in the common room, not in the bedrooms or the dining room. There is no place to lock your things. Also the building is dated and could use some renovation. It's not quite as close to the cliffs as I expected. It's about a 15 minute drive.

    Everything was great really overall. The only thing that could be improved is the general decor in the rooms and bathrooms. They are shabby & dated, but overall everything else was so good, the hostel was still good value. Good parking out front.
