This was my favorite hostel of the six I stayed in throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. Staff was the friendliest and most welcoming. Loved having the option to go out with them to listen to music in the evenings. Artistic/eclectic decor. Spacious 6 bed female dorm, with vanities for us to get ready. Good air circulation in the room so we were never too hot or too cold. Lockable luggage cages under beds. Several plugs around the room. Great cafes in the area. Washer / dryer onsite and affordable.

They had very good facilities, and activities to do. We went out with Agus and the staff both nights we stayed, which included going to a market, as well as pubs with Irish music. The hostel was also very clean, and had a great atmosphere. I wish I could have stayed longer!

Fantastic location, spacious, great friendly cafe next door. The guy working the evening of Thursday 13th July 2017 was brilliant, the morning staff of Friday 15th July were less jolly and helpful.
