Breakfast inclusion was excellent including brilliant multi-grain & seed bread baked on site. Well equipped kitchen for self catering. A reasonably equipped hostel that will suit most travellers. Negative - Non-adjustable water temperature in showers.

This place is really handily located for a night out in West Port, the place is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only down side is the price, but as you'll soon discover, everything in West Port is expensive.

Stayed here for a few days, wasn't impressed. On arrival the woman at reception was very rude. We went to our room which was too warm, and very cramped. They had over booked our room so wasn't enough beds. Wifi wouldn't work so asked at reception desk, wasn't much help and had to use data. Common room closes at 11...

Went to Westport on a stag. A mannerly group that caused no trouble anywhere. You pay 25 euro in the event of damage to any of the rooms which is fair. There was approx 17 in our group so we had the 2 rooms at the end of the corridor. On checkout we were told our deposit was not refundable...

I didn't get a good first impression of the place, the girl at the reception seemed a bit new and shy, so she wasn't that helpfull and welcoming, which is usually why I love staying in hostels. The hostel was clean and the rooms nice and the breakfast was good, but Tom definitely made a difference! He was so helpful...

The location is good, the staff is really helpful, and there's a well-equipped kitchen BUT you cannot expect for any worse bathrooms. At first the bathrooms looked tidy and spacious, but once you've used them, you're gonna cry. There are 3 bathrooms for women but only 1 bathroom can be locked. There are no space to hang your stuffs (Towel,...

I stayed there four nights during the annual Westport traditional/bluegrass festival (which was wonderful), and with the exception of Saturday night where I had to move into an 8 person girls' dorm (fairly chaotic), I loved every minute of it. Tom, Anthony and the rest of the staff and volunteers (whose names I didn't get) were the nicest, and they...

Good hostel, calm and silent in a beautiful stone building. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast is great as they have self-made bread, and the bathrooms / showers were one of the finest I've ever seen on a hostel. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The beds are not top quality, and it gets a little chilly in the evening....
