    The dorm including the kitchen was very clean. The WiFi connectivity was excellent. Location was good, not far away from the beach. We were a group of 4 and Michael ensured that we had the entire dorm to ourselves for a small supplement charge. Would highly recommend!!

    My husband and I had a wonderful weekend here. The place was spotless. The staff were all lovely, especially Angela who was so helpful with local knowledge. Maps on the walls and pocket maps provided. Beautiful setting by the river just 5 minutes walk into the town. Larger supermarket 5 minutes walk away with everything you could need. Huge kitchen with 2 cookers and 2 sinks so no queuing to cook. Key for room and keypad entry system so very safe. Plenty of parking. We will defintely be back.!

    Great place on the outskirts of Buncrana. Excellent heating and shower facilities in the rooms. The kitchen and common room are nice and do the job. It's an easy walk into Buncrana and a good base from which to explore further.
