  Donegal Independent Hostel
by Helena1962

This is one of the best hostels I've ever been in (besides "Peacock Hostel" in Duckross near Killarney, Co Kerry): Just within 10 min. walking distance to town but far away enough to be quiet. Lisa, the hostel-mother makes you feel more than good. The whole hostel is like a cottage but with all facilities we are just used to. If you feel like homesick, this is absolutely your place. And cleaner than this hostel is nowhere. Please believe me!
I loved this hostel and I highly reccomend it. Just go and try it... you will thank me for this tipp! :o))))

Unique Qualities: This hostel has all facilities you are used to, except "ensuite" rooms and laundry. But don't mind: within 10 min. walking distance there is a cheap laundrette to wash your clothes in.
The nice wall decoration in rooms, the old-styled forniture is a big plus. ...

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
