Good, free breakfast in the morning, which is always welcome. Wifi in the dorms - great. Owners and staff were really very pleasant and helpful. Ideal location... More

Tralee is a beautiful place, with much... More

I really appreciated that wifi, towels and lockers were provided free of charge, and the hostel itself was reasonably priced. The... 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!
