This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The location is nice, but only if you have your own transportation. The lower price corresponds with facilities. Football table is excellent but nobody was playing it.

Friendly country hostel in the heart of Connemara, situated amongst beautiful scenery with panoramic views of the Connemara mountains behind the hostel and a beautiful lake at the front.
Nearby are the villages Clifden (13km)and Recess (8km/ shop, pub and petrol station only). But also the pretty village of Roundstone (14km)situated on the Atlantic ocean.
Inisboffin, the island of legend and folklore, can be visited from nearby Cleggan.
With the Twelve Bens Mountains to the rear of the Ben Lettery Hostel and the lake to the front this is the perfect hostel to visit if you are interested in cycling, hill walking or swimming.
Also a good base to visit the Aran Islands (45 min. from Rossaveal where the ferry operates)
Reception opens at 17:00 until 22:00.
You'll find a big self catering kitchen, a spacious dining room and a homely common room with turf fire and beautiful views.
