Stayed one night. Very chill place, people working are very friendly. Other guest mate brought someone else back to spend the night but other than that was a good stay. They were super chill to let me come back after I left to shower after surfing. No locker or bins in the rooms so prepared for that. Would recommend staying.

Was clean and friendly, very important. But the price was not worth the place. Understood that the price was for two nights when in fact it was only for one. I'd only stay there again if the other places were full.

Had a great time at the Lahinch Hostel. We met lots of new people and everyone is really nice and caring. The rooms, the kitchen and the bathrooms are clean and the beach is just around the corner. We definitely come back next year. Nothing to complain about!

It's not charming in any way, but you won't get stabbed in thy night either. Wouldn't recommend unless you travel on a tight budget. Nice with free parking slot in the back though. The cafeteria there is supposedly cheap but I didn't see it being different than other spots in the city.

I've stayed in plenty of hostels and lived out of a few for a while. The hostel is fine, rooms are ok and sharing shower and bathroom is to be expected in a hostel. The price would have been ok if the hostel hadn't refused to give us back our deposit without any reason. No body from our party caused... More

Stopped off here last weekend. Was on a cycling trip. The hostel had a shed for bikes and wetsuits. Very laid back vibe, friendly staff and adequate kitchen facilities. Close to everything in Lahinch. The door codes is a great idea. The hostel was comfortable and clean and I was able to get my gear washed too which was great.

Lahinch Hostel has great accomadations, but their finest feature is their wonderful and friendly staff. We stayed for three nights and had fun hanging out in the lounge area before going to the fun music filled pubs on the main street. On my birthday they even bought a candy bar and sang to me.

We stayed in this hostel last weekend and we couldn't recommend it enough. The staff were friendly and easy going and everything was spotlessy clean. The location was great, close to the beach and so many excellent pubs and restaurants. The only problem is you won't want to leave. Already planning the next trip...
