When we went into our room, it smelled very strange inside. At night, it was too hot, the walls are like paper, you hear everything!! The beds are too small and the blankets seemed like already used before. The facilities were very dirty... I can't recommend it to anyone but my worse enemy.

I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. The pictures and good reviews online are misleading and I'm positive they are all written by the staff that work there. If you are a hiker and your bathroom and bed has been the forest for 3 months then this place looks like a decent living quarter for the night but for... More

Hostel is very well located. Rooms were ok, normal for hostel standart. Breakfast was acceptable too. The only problem was the level of noise, which you'll always find in a hostel but in this one it was particulary noisy especially because we had our room close to the common area. But for the price you pay it's a really good... More

I stayed in Railway with my sister and brother in law last week, everything was so good, Greta (the girl of the reception) did a great job and showed herself very reliable. The atmosphere in the hostel is very good too, the prices are friendly and it isn't far from the good pubs/nightclubs! I'll be back someday! :)

I stayed here recently with my, sister and four of my cousins ( two of whom are English). We had no problem checking in and the receptionist was very friendly. The rooms are clean and the hostel was very quiet at night. I did not get up for the breakfast so I cannot comment on that. The dorm I stayed... More

The room we had was in great condition. A bit of old black mold on the ceiling, but we'd seen that in several places in Ireland so far, and considering the environment here I'm not surprised. The room was great, comfortable beds, super clean bathroom, good cooking facilities, and free wifi. On site and free parking availability was a huge... More

I stayed here for one night before heading to Ring of Kerry. The only good thing was good location - near railway station. Everything else was hostel, even in hostel range. Hostel is in really bad condition, persons inside creapy, and when I was there there was a huge amount of partying young people shouting and slamming doors upstairs. Hostel... More
