This hostel is fab, one of the best I have been in, with the price for sharing very reasonable. Very close to the bars and can go for lovely walks. Not too far from the ferry to Inis Mor either. With regard to the hostel, it was spotless, breakfast included continental which was very good too. Would highly recommend.

I didn't stay at the Doolin Hostel but Cliff Coast Coffee is attached to it and I thought it was terrific! We were on our way to the Doolin Cave but there is no transportation there from the bus stop, so one of the friendly staff members at Cliff Coast Coffee kindly called a taxi for us. After our Doolin...

The Doolin Hostel is AMAZING. Other than sharing a room with several other people, it is not at all like your standard hostel. It is the most charming, beautiful, laid back place I've ever stayed. I was there a week and wished I could have stayed longer. I plan to return for a longer visit this summer. The breakfast that...

We went to Doolin for a music festival and the hostel was a perfect place to stay, walking distance from bars with live music and from the Doolin pier. Delicious breakfast, very cosy space. We loved it! :)

Myself, my wife and 2 daughters travelled to doolin as a group of 50 for part of a music competition. The rooms were very much of a hotel standard than a hostel. The view from our family room was incredible, the rooms were spotless and the staff were great. Would definitely recommend.

Such a good place to stay, spotlessly clean despite building outside to provide more beds for weary travellers, rooms fine, really thoughtful environmental responsibility, smashing buffet breakfasts and the most considerate helpful staff you could wish for. Nothing seems too much trouble, so helpful, and a truly warm welcoming place. Lovely cosy lounge for when you need to relax too....

Clean, budget friendly and basic. They are expanding so parking was troublesome, construction started very early in the am so lots of noise. Breakfast was typical hostel food, but if you brought food there was an option to cook for yourself. Bathroom was basic.

Lovely hostel, great breakfast including scones. Sockets and lights above the beds such a great idea. So close to the Cliffs of Mohar. Well recommended. Very friendly staff. We were in the building opposite the hostel, quiet.
