My stay in Bundoran working at the hostel was truly wonderful! If you're considering going there for getting to know locals, surfing, and a good time, then I definitely recommend the place to be right for you! I had a lovely time and got along really well with staff and locals. I cannot wait to come back :)

I loved my time at the hostel! I was lucky enough to join a team of awesome people who were always down for a surf, explore, or a night out! I had such a good time and the people really made the experience the best. This was my first time volunteering and while it was a good experience, there were times when I felt if we all communicated a bit more the daily tasks would have gone a bit smoother. There was a bit of confusion as to the tasks and expectations but we got it sorted out in the end! Overall the work was easy and fair! the hostel was super chill and the people were awesome :)

My experience at the hostel was great! The manager Monia is very fair with the tasks and the place is beautiful, 5 minutes walk to the nearest beach. The city is very pretty and the people are nice, had a great time and would definitely do it again!

I had a great time working at the hostel! The workload is very fair and varies (housekeeping, breakfast or reception shift). The hostel itself has a nice vibe and is located close to the beach and a beautiful cliff walk! You get in touch with a lot of travelers from all over the world but also with locals and guests from Dublin, who are here for the weekend. Everyone was very friendly and open and I really enjoyed my stay.
