It has the most beautiful views of the rugged Donegal coast. Other than that, the hosts were great and the facilities were good. We had hot water and a heater was provided in case it got cold. All around great value for money and a wonderful place to stay.

Just Great! Comfortable and very clean. Paul was remarkably helpful, giving us a lift every time we needed one, even to pick us up at the pub. Just one observation: we could hear the neighbours walking on the roof. But we sleapt well after the long walk w

Breathtaking location. Charming village. The owners really did help us with everything from laundry to directions - they even offer a lift to and from the pub! Slieve League is close by and the local Woollen Mills are a great place to find sweaters. This is one of my favorite hostels in Ireland. I will be back for sure.

Located in one of the most beautiful natural locations in Ireland. Great culture and craic in the nearby village. 3 pubs that have live music most nights and a great crowd of locals and visitors. Hostel is about 5km from the town, but the owner will drop and pick you up to the town whenever you like (even pick you up after the mandatory lock ins in the pub haha!). Rooms are the best value I've had in Ireland. Myself and 3 mates (Irish guys late twenties) shared a room and had one of the most enjoyable nights of our 4 day road trip in Ulster. Cannot recommend it enough! And the owner is a top bloke from Derry!

It was cheap and in a perfect spot for exploring the highest cliffs of Europe, but that's about it.

Paul and his family were amazingly generous and warm. The location is brilliant and was like a breath of fresh air. The breakfast was just what the doctor ordered and everything just fit right into place. It's the best money I've spent since I arrived in the UK/Ireland and the next time I'm here I'm definitely going back.

First of all the owners, Paul and Sharon, we're so unbelievably nice!...From the second you walked in you felt like family and we're really comfortable. The Hostel itself is about 4km away from the Bus stop that we got off of, but upon arrival, Paul expectedly came and picked us up, after a local Bar owner called him to tell him that we arrived. For the rest of the stay Paul, would run us, and any of his guests, into town whenever they needed...it was so unexpected! The Hostel itself is gorgeous with little warm and tidy rooms and an amazing Irish breakfast in the morning. Also if you cook, they had this gorgeous, big kitchen with all wood cubberts that you could use at you disposal...it really did feel like home. I would highly recommend this Hostel. OH! and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking with cliffs and ocean, and a sweet little irish village... you should seriuosly go..we didnt want o leave.

The area where this hostel is located is just fantastic. The weather has been great even though it's January. Slieve League is certainly very spectacular and definitely worth a visit. Glencolmcille is my favorite place on this Irish Trip so far. The Hostel is great too. To be honest my room is like a hotel than a hostel, and owners are really friendly and helpful. Will be back here for sure.
