This hostel being part of the sleepzone group, we knew we'd get what we paid for. Very friendly staff who informed us of the various attractions in the area. 3 of us stayed in a 6 bed room. Very spacious and clean. We happened to land in the middle of the Lisdoonvarna Festival. Room cost was €30 per head with coffee and toast self-served for breakfast. Overall, we were very happy with our stay. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just a comfortable and clean place to stay and thats what we got.

While not on Lisdoonvarna's Main street, it's very close (litereally 200 metres).

Stayed here for the Lisdoonvarna weekend in Sept 2013 and we went for hostel accommodation based on the price offered. The hostel is right beside the bus stops and has lots of car parking.

The staff were nice but did seem very obsessed with talking about the terms and conditions of the deposits to be paid (incl a key deposit of €5 and a general deposit and disclaimer for €25 each). The room itself (a four bed private dorm) was very spacious.

There was quite a good after hours bar in the hostel and there was no issue eating chipper food in the bar. There were two drawbacks- the room itself was quite cold during the night, but perhaps the heat wasn't on as it was still summer season. We didn't raise it was a concern as we were only there for one night. The second was the breakfast and kitchen area did seem very basic.

Overall, it was grand and probably the largest hostel in Lisdoonvarna. If you're going to Lisdoonvarna you probably are not worried about where you stay so this hostel will suit fine.

Room Tip: ASk for a private dorm.

Stayed at this hostel for two nights in an ensuite room. The place was quiet clean, beds comfortable and staff eager to please and friendly. I am deducting a mark as there was a large number of cobwebs and spiders in our room that could of benefitted from a little bit of "high dusting". There is a bar and a sitting room with a warm fire burning in the evening. There is a light breakfast available in the morning tea, coffee, brown, bread and toast. There is a new kitchen installed but the bathroom in the rooms are in bad need of a revamp. Its a short walk into the village.

I stayed here for The Outing with a group of friends and had a very positive experience. The staff are absolutely lovely, the rooms are basic but clean, though ours was a little damp which was the only real problem I had with the place. It's a great base for a social weekend as they have a bar on-site to come back to after a night out, if you're not ready for bed yet. There's free toast and tea in the mornings and use of the kitchen if you want to make your own food. Hope to be back next year for the next round!

Be careful with Sleepzone, if you reserve with one card and pay for the room with another they will charge both and not attempt to persue a refund on your behalf.

Several emails were exchanged and I was assured it was being processed. Got back home contacted my bank to learn no refund was in the works.
