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!

Located in the centre of Tralee, just a 5 minute walk from the train station - perfect for interrailers ;) Nice rooms and very clean, also the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful! The price is also very good, and breakfast included!

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

We only spent one night here but it was great. Smack bang in the middle of town, friendly owners and cost next to nothing. Basic but very good. All the bars and takeaways are only a stones throw away. Tea coffee and a selection of cereals available for breakfast. All in all very good value.

Located just near the lovely city park and the museum the castle hostels is a no-frills bargain hostel offering dorms of 4, 8, as well as à few doubles. From what owner Stephen said, it can welcome about 40 people. We stayed in a 4bed dorm, rather small but ok, the shower was a little worn-out but clean. The 2... More

We arrived on Sunday 5 August 2012, were warmly greeted by the owner, given loads of helpful local information, a basic spotlessly clean en-suite room with TV & SUCH a comfortable bed. Continental breakfast is included in the price, & well-equipped modern clean kitchen if you want to cook more food. As hostels in the area go, this one is... More

Aileen and Stephen are helpful and informative hosts. They will bend over backwards to make you welcome. They are sympathetic to tired, wet bicyclists and provide safe, accessible storage for your bikes and gear. The rooms are clean with towels provided. Breakfast is also supplied along with many extras such as milk, coffee, sugar, bread for toast and condiments ....... More
