Eden Hill Hostel Sligo
Terrible is the only word I can use to describe this place. There was no atmosphere at all from the word go. It's too far from the town and place is just not to my liking. I have seen better hostels . Avoid IMO.
Unique Quality: Soaked and frozen we rang the bell and the next thing we saw was a midle aged lady with a big smile telling us " Are you girls from Croatia? We've been waiting for you all day."
(I forgot I wrote them in an email that we'd arrive around noon.)
The hostel doesn't look like a hostel at all. Its a huge family house (once owned by Yeats cousin - as they proudly said - and Yeats was a regular visitor there) and the moment you step inside it you get a feeling like you're transported to some other century. We loved it.
From what I managed to see, they have only a few rooms, which means not many people and that gives you a feeling like you're staying with a family, and not in a hostel.
Being from Croatia meant we were the only one there freezing. Literally. They put heating in our room. But that wasn't enough for us. We asked for extra blankets and we got them. Then we asked for more blankets. And finally were warmed enough.
