I booked this hostel for myself and my girlfriend we had been looking forward to visiting inis mor. We were excited when we saw the boutique style rooms on the Internet.. Our optimism was shattered when we arrived, to discover the outside of the building looking absolutely disgraceful.. Mould growing on walls, grass not cut, weeds growing everywhere.. Around the back of the house was piles of used cooking pots, more weeds and general dirt.. The owner checked us in, and cleverly made us pay for our 2 night stay up front, 50 euros per night, total 100 euro.. Our room was number 4, up a narrow and low stairs, on which I banged my head.. On arriving inside the room, it smelled of mould.. It was tiny, and the windows had condensation on them.. The curtains were mouldy., and the floor was dirty.. My girlfriend got locked inside one of the toilets because the handle broke, luckily she had her mobile and rang me so I could rescue her.. Generally, I have never complained about a place before, and I do not expect unusually high standards, but this guy has a total cheek charging 50 euros per night.. The b&bs, hotels etc are the same price!!!! I would question the authenticity of any review that recommends this place, because it simply isn't true.. I have travelled all around the world, china etc, and never seen a lower standard.. Disgraceful and a bad advertisment for Ireland to any potential visitors..
