I didn't have a nice experience at all. The linen was very, very old. Bunk beds lumpy and again, very, very old. Luckily a thin person was in the bunk above me. The whole place stank of old food with an eggy tinge. The toilets were blocked. The bedrooms were hot and if you opened a window all the doors...

Stayed here with a group of friends one night, we booked a room and it was only 20 euro each. The hostel is in the centre of town, it is a little rundown but the friendly manager keeps it very clean. Its not a haven of luxury but fine for the price and central location. I would stay again. Only...

Cheap hostel (16€/night in 6 bedroom). I actually slept very well, although the matress was not the best. The toilet/shower was clean, but during high season one toilet and one shower for 10+ people might not be enough. The simple fact, that there was no free breakfast was disappointing. But you can not beat the location (just a few minutes...

I'm sure you can find better hostel in the...

I agree with mdarsigny's comment at all. Furthermore, beds are very unconfortable, the sprung mattress was a really massage (nothing pleasant of course). It's acceptable to sleep but if I come back, I will try another hostel.

We found this place because it was the only hostel in Sligo that had vacancy. We didn't want to sleep in a dorm and that was the only beds remaining. The staff were extremely helpful considering the situation. They showed us where were the other hostel in town to help us find private rooms. But since everything was full we...
