The dormitories are well-kept, beds made and toilets clean; the kitchen is well equipped and breakfast is provided; wi-fi facility, transport time-tables and the hostel's proximity to the bus station makes it a convenient place. Tralee is a beautiful place, with much... More

The owner is really nice and takes care of everything. We stayed with a few friends in a private room. The price was really cheap and included light breakfast and wifi. Would recommend this one for sure :) Would come there for a second time if around!

The man who runs this hostel is so nice and so helpful! I was traveling alone, but didn't feel alone at all with the atmosphere of this hostel! I had a private room, #2 at the top of the stairs, and it was lovely! Tralee is a beautiful area, I highly recommend it!

The hostel is located on the main street (road) of Tralee. It is surrounded by many fast food places and a big parking space. The rooms are quite small but they are clean and very well isolated. They have TV and free wifi. Breakfast is quite basic but enough. The owner was very nice and gave us very good tips... More
