I stayed here for 5 nights in October. This is a hostel. Lots of shared rooms, lot of young folk swapping travellers' stories and common areas for eating, cooking and chilling out. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They help to arrange activities, send you to good people to rent bikes, they have maps and take time to explain... More

Filthy kitchen, can't believe passes health inspection. Room could have been whole lot better. En suite shower disgustingly overflowing & clearly not just the night I stayed, when I informed receptionist he was clearly not surprised. Don't stay at this hostel until it has complete overhaul

In short, very nice stay, maybe one of the best. Very safe, friendly, budget. Breakfast could be better, but it is ok, basic is there. Kitchen is maybe not new but it is very big. If i ever come back, i know where to stay.

Friendly, clean, town-centre hostel with a simple breakfast included in the price. If you are looking for somewhere welcoming and cheap, but are not expecting any frills - then this is it. We stayed at the end of November, room was a bit chilly, the bed a bit creaky, but the shower was hot and didn't run out of water.... More

Booked in 06/07/2014. Had my own room on second floor at back. My room window was easily assessable from the flat roof of adjacent building and this is how the robber got into my room. All my valuables were stolen, passport, ipad, travellers cheques, etc etc. The reception staff were very helpful in reporting to police etc. The police arrived... More

Has breakfast of cereal and tea. Bike storage is available in a garbage room. Nice central location but off the main streets so nice and quiet. Strangely, our room had no window except a skylight. It was clean and tidy. We stayed in a room with one double bed so we had the whole room to ourselves. It was quiet... More

I stayed at Neptune's for two nights. My room was not in the main building, but very close just across the drive in. I guess they have just opened that part of the hostel as it seemed very new. My room was a en-suite dorm with 6 beds. The furnitures are simple but very useful. The room looks very trendy,... More

It is a quaint a quiet hostel in a hidden lane. If you are running on no sleep like myself then this is a great place to lay your head for the night. Right in the heart of the cute little town of Killarney. The people at checkin were very helpful as I am a woman of many questions.

This hostel is tied with one other as far as my favorite so far in Ireland and probably wins by a length due to its great location. Staff are very friendly and helpful, always seemed to be available when I had questions about the area. I stayed in both the older and newer parts of the hostel. I found both... More

We got a really good sized room in the new wing. We where very impressed with the finish and the bathroom was finished to a high spec standard. Couple of small issues. The heating is set to a timer by the the hostel so we had no control over it. So was cold when we arrived about 2pm and it... More
