I can't say enough good about my experience here. My room was unusually comfortable, even amongst hotels, and everything was spotlessly clean. What really made this stay exceptional though was how friendly and welcoming it was. Linda goes out of her way to make sure that her guests are enjoying their stay and is hilarious and kind. With her influence,...

Our double room was clean and private with fresh linen, the hostel had great kitchen and lounge, the hostel has huge parking area and beautiful gardens. 4-5 minutes walk into Donegal Town. We arrived late back from a wedding and the hostel owner was waiting up to make sure we were in. Perfect

Spotlessly clean place with access to a full kitchen, living room, and outdoor picnic tables. Guests ranged in age from 20 to 70 and all were friendly. The noise from the hallway into the rooms could be a bit rough mid-day for an older woman who needs her naps but the young ones went out at night and slept in...

The hostel is ideally situated on the edge of town, a few minutes walk from the Diamond (town centre). It's a friendly place, Andy and Linda were unobtrusive and yet very helpful during my stay. I had a room with en suite at a very reasonable price. The hostel and grounds are clean and tidy. I slept comfortably there. I'd...

Nice hostel located a little distance out of town. Short ten minute walk to get to town centre. So if you would like something a little farther away from the hustle and bustle but still able to get to town it's perfect. Linda is wonderful and keeps everything very clean.

Basic, but value for money. The room was clean, the bathroom spotless, and very quiet. Plenty of space within the kitchen, with coffee and tea available. The owner was incredibly helpful and charming, and will be somewhere to visit again
