Some clippings from our guest book:

We stayed in the Rock Hostel in March, two of us went surfing and two were just up for some fun- the staff at the hostel were so cool, they arranged surfing lessons for us, and then in the evening told us where to go at night time. We made friends with other hostelers there and all met up in the evening, it was a brilliant weekend, and we will definitely be back again.

We were looking to go to west of Ireland after flying into Dublin, we called this hostel and they picked us up from the bus, told us what to see and do in the area and where to find Irish music and nice food. We tried surfing and also the beaches are amazing and just walking around the town was really happy. It is a beautiful place and the hostel very very friendly and not expensive. We were able to buy food in the local shop and make for ourselves. We would like to come back to this again soon.

I was in charge of arranging my sister’s hen party – 12 of us booked in to the rock hostel, we had an amazing weekend in Bundoran, we did some high rope climbing and the ‘I’m a celebrity, get me outa here’ activity with the Adventure Centre, and then the hostel people booked us for a great meal and a mad night out in Bundoran. We met some of the instructors and staff out later and they were really funny. Everything was all arranged for us, and it was about half the price of other weekends. The hostel was really clean and funky, it’s a very cool place to stay.

I took my two teenage sons for a surfing weekend. We stayed at the Rock Hostel, and I have to say, I was so impressed with the price and the value we got here. We would usually stay in hotels, but I think I’ve been converted to hostels – we had a great spacious room, we were able to use the kitchens when we wanted, and everything in town was in walking distance. We went to the cinema and the funfair, arranged some horse riding for me when the boys were surfing, and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Highly recommended.

I’d heard about surf in Ireland, but can’t believe what an awesome place Bundoran is. The surf is right there in front of the town, and the Rock Hostel was perfect – they arranged for me to hire a board and wetsuit, and afterwards I had some Guinness with the surfers that work there – in two days I made friends with some incredible Irish people.

We stayed at the Rock Hostel for a week – we were supposed to travel onwards to somewhere else, but this place was too good to leave. The town is busy and fun, and the hostel amazingly friendly. We were in a dorm room with other backpackers form Ireland and the USA and we all hung out together. I couldn’t believe we found this place, everything you hear about Irish people being friendly is true.
