The thing I love most about Neptune's is the staff!! They are truly amazing. And as such the hostel feeds off of them. It is because of their hard work, friendly attitude, and excellent service that this hostel is so successful. Add to that the great living space, the large dining room, and the excellent location and you have a... More

Nice hostel. Central location to pubs. Rooms were fairly small. No lockers. Ensuite was clean but simple. Location quite hard to find as down an alley. Staff nice and friendly. Includes a very simple breakfast. Hot drinks, toast, cereal, milk.

A perfect example of what the word HOSTEL means. Located in the heart of the town, the staff of this hostel will be glad to help you at any time you will need. The rooms are fabulous and the kitchen is very well organized, a small breakfast (cereals, milk, bread, jam and butter) is included. Ask any kind of tips... More

This place is a little tricky to find due to some construction in the neighborhood. But it was a great place to meet a lot of international people. It was also very convenient to get on any tours or any attractions in the area. Killarney is a great place with cool restaurants and bars and this place was close to... More

Been there for a night, the rooms weren't ready at about noon but every staff member were very helpful, you could still use the rest of the facilities. Even when I checked out they let me leave my bag in the luggage room for a few hours. I read in someone's review that breakfast was awful, well I disagree. Yes... More

We stayed here nights 10-12 of 14 in Ireland. It was our jumping off point for Blarney Castle and Dingle. The location was great, easy to find and just off the main road, maybe 10 minutes walk from the train station. The front desk staff was super friendly and helpful. Our room was in a separate building, which I thought... More

So one person will be under a bunk where they cannot situp, or get out of bed. The ceilings are VERY low on the top floor of the building. I'm 6'.... More
