"perfect for our needs"
We stayed at the hostel for 5 nights, exploring the glens and coastal region from Derry to Belfast; this was a good base for that. We self-catered which was easy enough with the facilities provided - maybe a few more kitchen utensils could be added but all in all, it was fine. Read less
Likes:
Friendly, basic but clean and good value.
The wooden floors were a bit noisy... why is that not in the dislike section, you ask? Well, it just would not be the same charming experience without them!
Dislikes:
One bed was a bit too soft - mattress probably knackered so may need replacing - the other one was fine.

"A good location but totally average place and service"
I stayed in the Hostel. When I arrived, I could not find anyone to check me in. The owner's kitchen is part of the hotel next door and I was received as if I was interrupting her day. She was not very friendly, gave short answers when I asked about the area or places to eat etc. She seemed bored and not at all interested in her guests. Read less
Likes:
Only the location
Dislikes:
In the hostel, the carpet up the stairs looked like it had not been hoovered in quite some time. The room was totally average and not worth the money charged.
Response from An Caislean:
We are obviously disappointed that this guest did not enjoy her stay. Not sure what the problem was during check-in, but apologies if we did not have our McDonald's smile on that day! Most guests comment on how clean the hostel accommodation is, so we're really puzzled by the allegation that the stairs were not vaccuumed and that the room was totally average. While the hostel is budget accommodation, we are very particular about its cleanliness for guest use.
