Nos encantó su ubicación. Pero las camas eran un poco rígidas e hicieron difícil el descanso.

Il miglior ostello in cui siamo stati durante il nostro soggiorno in Irlanda, stanze molto belle i bagni un po' piccoli, ma puliti, cucina confortevole e pulita , zona living molto bella. Unica nota dolente il segnale wi-fi un po' debole. Assolutamente consigliato!

The showers were not warm, which was disappointing after long days hiking in the rain. I understand they used to be too hot, now they are too cold. Kitchen is awesome-well stocked and easy to use with others. I recommend getting a couple more knives. Wish it would tell you online when large kid groups are staying as they are very loud and change the whole feeling of the hostel. We would not have stayed if the kid group had been there throughout our stay as they were up very late and very loud.
