Loved our stay at this hostel. Frank (manager/caretaker) went above and beyond for my family and I. This beachfront property was ideal as we were close to the pub and store. It was also very close to the ferry. Thanks again! Hope to see you again soon Frank! Gin

Our stay in Arranmore Hostel was completely wonderful. It is situated directly at the Atlantic and we had our supper outside, listening to the waves and the cries of the seagulls. Our host Frank was perfect and cared very good for us. Even though Arranmore is such a small island with a scenic landscape, we had a very funny night...

Spent one night here with the other half. There was a free dorm so we had the room to ourselves, which was great. The view from the room was beautiful & the kitchen facilities were excellent! The shower in both the ladies and gents was great, lots of hot water & with a very strong pressure, which was refreshing! The...

We stayed here for my Brothers Stag and it was a top class location. Right on the beach and 2 minutes walk from the ferry. It has an amazing view and is spotlessly clean. As best man, I was organising it all and Frank the manager could not have been more helpful or friendly. He made my job a lot...

I stayed here for a stag last weekend and found this place to be great for the cost involved. As hostels go you wouldn't be expecting the Ritz but the standard was very good. Location was second to none, beside the ferry and the pubs and shop. Scenery was fantastic, right on the beach. We had a breakfast included as...

Top class hostel run by a true gent. Excellent breakfast, location and the views of Errigal and the mainland are amazing. Beach right at the back door and good pubs within one minute walk. Couldn't recommend highly enough and will return.

The hostel is everything you'd expect. 5 star luxury it's not but it does exactly what it says on the tin. It's clean, efficiently run and the amenities are clean and there's plenty of hot water. Our package included breakfast which was plentiful and cooked to perfection. Don't forget a towel. I did and it was my only negative. Frank...

Very central hostel. Excellent facilities around. The host Franks was very welcoming and the breakfast the next morning was delicious. Great views overlooking the bay and only 3 minute walk to the ferry.
