The location of the hostel was perfect. The staff were really friendly and informative about everything to see/do in Kilkenny. The kichen was a great place to cook and there is a Dunnes supermarket just down the street if you want to buy food. The only negative is that the building is slightly old and could do with a makeover.

This was a good place to stay for the price range. The beds were quite hard but the rooms we're very clean. The showers and bathrooms were very very clean I was really impressed with that! They also offer free towels which is not the case in other hostels we stayed in!

It is in the heart of Kilkenny and very close to all sites - particularly as Kilkenny itself is a compact tourist location. Excellent sleep and was able to leave bags during the day. No... More

I stayed in a dorm for one night. The lady upon check in was very helpful and informative. There's a huge notice board in the entrance area with heaps of information about daily activities, events and what-to-do's. Unfortunately there's no breakfast provided, this would make it a perfect place!

we stay there just overnight, but good hostel, good ambient and the bedroom were clean and comfortable! so don't worry for the sleepy time! actually we didn't use all the common area, but the kitchen looks good, the sitting room looks cool, with couch and library! so, if you need, this hostel is a good choice!
