The room was fine, the bath overall clean. Our bed had a old mattress that was worn through which was why I woke up with back pains. It was fine for one night but I wouldn't stay another. The room also didn't smell that nice when we got there. The mood within was great though! People were eating and talking... More

Absolute jewel, but you have to book room in the new part of hostel, old part is not that impressive, very clean, ensuite rooms for as little as 19 euros per night, free parking, in the center of killarney

We stayed in two separate rooms at Neptune's and enjoyed both. The only reason we switched rooms was because we decided to stay a second night and the original one was reserved. My son described the en suite rooms as "regular hotel rooms without a t.v." and I think that's appropriate. The beds were fine. Perhaps the mattresses were thinner... More

Stayed here as part of a tour. Very central!!! Rooms were clean and warm. Bathroom was a little small, but adequate. The staff were very nice and accommodating. My brother is very tall and found he couldn't fit and therefore fall asleep in the bunks, so he went and slept on the couch in the lobby. The staff were so... More

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
