We had a great time at Linda and her husband's hostel ! The rooms are nice , the living room very cosy ! Linda is a great host, takes time to make you acquainted with her other guests and has a good sense of humour ! She makes you feel at home ! I'll surely come back to their place next time I come to Donegal ! The best hostel we had during our one week stay in Ireland !!!

I had a great stay at the hostel. Linda is the nicest person and the hostel has a wonderful garden with a view, comfy beds and great showers.The kitchen is well equipped. Location is perfect for a night out at the pubs in Donegal town and easy to reach from the main road with very good parking space, but also quiet for a good nights rest. If you are on for a morning run there is a supernice route along the water and back through the town as a perfect roundcourse. Look out for the fairy houses in the trees. :-) Loved my stay an will certainly come back.

I had a wonderful stay at Donegal Independent Hostel. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and my single room with ensuite was lovely, clean and comfortable with great wifi. The Hostel is in a great location - just a short walk into town. I loved my stay here and hope to stay again when I return to Ireland.

Host was very friendly, we arrived very late and she was still happy to show us around and help us book taxis etc. The room was very clean and all we needed. The location is great, just a 10 min walk from the centre of town.
