    We stayed at the hostel for 3 nights and had a great time. The staff (Leah and Paola) were really friendly and our children loved chatting to them, they made our stay. There is a great pool table for rainy days and everything is well kept and clean. Thanks for having us!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hostel. The hostel was very clean, ensuite is room pretty dated but again very clean. Beds very comfortable. My friends however who were also due to stay but needed to cancel and unfortunately were not refunded deposits and extra money was taken from their bank accounts despite cancelling well within the cancellation period. Both the hostel and sleepzone blaming one another and no one answering the emails in relation to the funds taken from their accounts

    Stayed with three teenagers and would definitely return. It’s lovated in Lisdoonvarna which is close to Doolin, the cliffs and much more. Reception was great really nice staff. The room was good. Private Bathroom was ok nothing to give out about but not fab either. The place is slightly dated but I liked that so depends on preference. I sat on the comfy sofa reading my book for hours relaxing. Also another room you can socialize in like a bar type place but you bring your own (not this time :))

    We received a super warm welcome with a front office team going the extra mile & making the effort to get to know all their guests. From the 1 1/2 year old to the 65 year old, we all felt right at home. Pool table, library room and other common rooms were fab. Covid restrictions made a few things a little tricky but all was sorted with smiles and "no problem"s. Wifi reaching the bedrooms would be handy but not essential. A shelter outside would be great for assembling groups/smokers. Loved it

    We stayed here in July 2020 2 adults 4 kids(6-9 yes). Hostel staff particularly Paola was so friendly and helpful. Location in Lisdonnvarna perfect base for going to different attractions. Kids first time for staying in hostel really positive experience for them! Hostel clean but needs updating and maintenance. Front garden has potential for play equipment/picnic benches. Overall great experience and value for money 👍
