There are cleaner and more modern award winning hostels but the reason for staying here is the experience and it is not to be missed. Where else can you take a candlelit shower with mood music in a cubicle with blue neon fairy lights behind the walls! :-) This place is bonkers and brill!
Our friends that had never hosteled before were a bit shocked at first but soon warmed to the place and its character. Ok, you'll find some dust here and there but our beds were clean. Many of the rooms are themed so you can stay in the African room if you like.
If you don't give it a try, then you're missing out. We cycled from Letterfrack to Cong the next day and to be honest, the next hostel whilst clean, tidy and modern, but missing character. Go on, give it a try! Or go and stay somewhere more boring instead.
