This little hostel was probably by far our favorite. The staff were really nice and cool. The room and bathroom was clean. Our bed seemed quite small for two people and we didn't sleep to well but that might of been just us doesn't mean the next person there will sleep just as bad. The other guests were very respectful... More

I really enjoyed my stay. The guy who runs it is easily the best part. He is lovely and very accommodating the hostel is right in the centre of town - in walking distance of everything. The room was nice. Clean and modest as you might expect. The only thing was that it was a bit loud at night -... More

The Sugan is a very charming hostel with a nice atmosphere and a very friendly staff. The host was very helpful, gave me a map and offered many suggestions on activities to do in Killarney. Location is perfect, close to the train station and to the town center but the noise level is still quiet.

This hostel has a great location and it is clean but there are a few down falls. First the guy running it didn't even say his name or offer us suggestions on where to go or even give us a map. He also told us that there is free overnight parking in the town parking lot in which I ended... More

We decided to splurge and pay an extra 5 euros pp to upgrade from a dorm and we didn't regret it. The rooms are comfortable with en-suite bathrooms. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is included. There are no lockers or luggage storage however. Location is great - a quick walk from the train station and everything is quite close. They also... More

I recently stayed here with a group of friends, I was the only woman of the group. It has a perfect location right in the middle of Killarney, the only thing that let this hostel down was the gentleman who was in charge. We were put in the room which sleeps 8 which was a patio, and were told we... More
