What a wonderful hostel with a fabulous welcome. Facilities are perfect. The only thing that let this hostel down are the extremely uncomfortable mattresses with lumpy springs. If this was fixed this hostel would be hard to beat.

Le site est splendide et l'accueil est très chaleureux. Ça manque d'ustensiles en cuisine mais on s'en sort quand même. Les bruits des couloirs entrent dans les chambres : cris des enfants, chasses d'eau, douches. Très désagréable. Litterie très mauvaise : matelas à ressorts

Très beaux paysages mais par temps humide il est impossible de quitter les routes. Les 3 itinéraires de promenades proposés s'avèrent beaucoup trop boueux (tourbières). Magnifiques sentiers balisés et accès gratuit au Glenveagh National Park sauf visite château. A revoir : Insonorisation portes chambres : on entend tout ce qui se passe dans le couloir et dans les sanitaires communs surtout en présence de groupes peu respectueux des autres hôtes.

L'accueil a été parfait et les informations sur le fonctionnement de l'auberge étaient très claires. Nous avons apprécié le petit déjeuner prévu par l'auberge. Très bon séjour et hôtesse attentive.
