It later served as a storehouse, animal shelter and slaughter house, a chicken hatchery and in 1991 was renovated and converted into a low budget holiday hostel. It has been welcoming visitors from all over the world ever since.

    We just stayed one night in the hostel but really enjoyed the special atmosphere in this lovely building. Staff is super nice and helpful and the self baked bread for breakfast made us feel very welcome. Location is ideal in the centre of the town. Everything was clean.

    The hostel has great location in a charming building. At 35 euro a night, the basic dorm seemed overpriced. There was a stag party staying next to our room. They were very loud until after 5am. No one from the hostel seemed to intervene.

    The location is superb! The staff is exemplary! The bathroom was atrocious, nasty, and not accommodating. Bathroom had a wet floor and showers had no pegs to hang anything. Toliets were Naaaasssssttty. Would I stay here again? Yes for the location. This is actually this is the second time I have stayed here for Matt Malloys Pub.

    Kitchen was great, breakfast awesome ! Shower and toilet assigned to my room was awful! The shower super small no hooks no shower curtain to keep your things dry push Timer was 5 seconds I kid you not! Almost everything to make it an unpleasant experience! Check out at 10 is early kitchen opens at 8 am too late if you are early riser! Could definitely be more “traveller friendly “ as that is there support!

    No laundry facilities despite saying so. Female staff using male toilets was uncomfortable. Took large security deposits off us but no one else in the 10 person dorm we were staying in so not very welcoming. Good location.
