This hostel is unbelievable. Clean. Friendly. Modern. The staff were brilliant and the place is amazingly clean and well kept. I would highly recommend! I came here with friends and took a room. I cannot stress how well kept and modern the rooms and amenities are. Good spot.

Very clean, modern, spacious and comfortable hostel which is more like a hotel. Its is situated in a good location for a country break, the town has lots of character and is safe as well as quirky. The hostel is an ideal base for the region.

Lovely, clean, warm, central and has everything you need. Big kitchen, comfy beds, parking and 24hour access. 5 star, 10/10. Lots of thing to do around here. Biking, hiking and running.<br/><br/>You can't go wrong with this place. If Carlsberg did hostels........

We just got back from a great weekend including a 2 night stay at the Ballyhoura Hostel. We were in Kilfinnane for the mountain race and this was the perfect base. It's an exceptional spot - from the design and finish of the place (the woodwork is beautiful - better than what you'd find in a top hotel) to the... More

Beautiful hostel with fantastic facilities & brilliant hosts. The sauna is a must if you've had a bit of a soaking whilst walking or biking nearby. Also loved the drying room, lovely solid beds & roaring fire in the lounge. And breakfast is huge. We'll be back!

We went to Ballyhoura hostel for our second time at the weekend. My previous review was glowing so I was interested to see if things had changed as we first visited just after the hostel opened. The hostel has lost none of its newness and was as clean and sparkling as when we first visited. The beds are as comfortable... More

I was mountain Biking this weekend in Ballyhoura and we stayed in the Ballyhoura Hostel. This is without question the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The place is immaculate in terms of cleanliness, the showers are hot, the beds are more comfortable than my own at home. There is a sauna, a lovely sitting room with a roaring... More
