“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Stayed a couple of times in this great hostel for surfing, always a pleasure. Staff are available and happy to help and kept an eye on our bags for the day even after we'd checked out.

Rooms are basic enough but with everything you need and plenty of hot water for showers. Well equipped kitchen and nice area out the back for a few drinks and bbq.

Great place to hang out and meet other groups and is right on the beach. Parking is available around the corner. Have stayed in other hostels around the area but this is the best in my books.

Booked this hostel last minute for the Easter weekend, Staff was very friendly and helpful especially Mick the porter, Hostel is located right on the beach so ideal for surfers / etc, rooms were clean and fresh linen on the beds, a free breakfast is also provided, cereals, bread for toast, jam nutella etc, tea and coffee is also provided all day free of charge along with free WIFI, while this hostel isn't the cleanest or fanciest around for a weekend trip it is ideal to stay in - central, affordable and great craic !! i would definitely stay here again.

The Lahinch Hostel was a really great place to stay! The owner set us up with surfing lessons and was overly accommodating. The beds were clean and comfortable, the showers warm, the facilities well kept. The rooms were small, but definitely manageable.

I stayed in this hostel for a week end, i was in Lahinch for surfing, and they provide a boards storage place and hot showers when you dress your wetsuit off. The breakfast was as normal for an hostel but they let all the stuff all day long, so if you feel hungry you can eat during the afternoon. The room was confortable and clean and the bathrooms too.
The owner is really kind and provided me all the infos I needed, and when I asked him if I could use changing room and showers after my morning surf, the checkout day, he let me do it.
I really apreciate my staying and I strongly recommend this hostel.

I stay here every time I visit lahinch. Perfect for surfers with gear (board room out back + shower facilities ideal) staff are always friendly. Never had a problem. Always had a great time. Seems to be a bit of work going on at the back. Caused no inconvenience at all.

We decided to pay a last minute short break in Lahinch before back to school routine ! Hostel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. We had a room with double bed and a set of bunks - absolutely suitable for our party of 2 adults and 2 children. Bedding, carpets etc v clean. Showers and toilets are communal and were equally clean and fresh! Location perfect for surfing / beach and eating out and enjoying the wonderful music and Craic lahinch offers. The kitchen was clean and had everything needed to make all meals! Would Defo recommend :-) and will return again soon

I just returned from a two night stay in this hostel with 3 of my friends. We were a group of 4 girls and Pat "the owner" out us in 6 bed dorm. The rooms was spacious Compared to other hostels I have stayed. The hostel was clean had all facilities needed..

I would reccommend this hostel to all travellers it's great location and value for money :)
