Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
It was difficult to find a hostel. We drove up in complete darkness and for a long time could not figure out where to turn. The pointer is too small. The hostel is clean and very helpful staff. But the blankets were a little damp. The audibility in the room was as if the walls did not exist.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Be careful when booking it didn't state clearly we were sharing bathroom and shower even though it stated private shower. Receptionist was friendly and gave us a cancellation double room with ensuit for one of the nights at extra cost! Then we moved to twin room No 11 sharing bathroom and toilet for second night. Stains on carpet and walls thin as paper could hear everything next door. I've been to some great hostels but this is not one of them. Looks amazing from outside don't be fooled.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
hotel/hostel of the future I'd say
Beautiful area, stylish tasteful hostel type accommodation. Freedom to bring back takeaways, heat food, do laundry while having all the facilities of a private room with ensuite. Suited me well. Maxi points restaurant in a walled garden up the road which also did takeaways and then let you eat them there and gave you cutlery and drinks so points all round. A drink on the spot at Hartfield for guests like me who'd just done the Bealach Na Ba by mistake would be an excellent addition.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A wonderful place for zen vacation, spectacular scenery, but difficult mountain road, of which visitors should be warned, if not experienced drivers or have agoraphobia
