Great location in the heart of kinsale. Attending a wedding and kinsale isn't the cheapest place. We found this place. 45 euro each for two nights. 5 guys shared a room. 3 single beds and 1 double bed. No problems with that. For a bunch of guys it was grand. We were made very welcome and it's a nice relaxed... More

After a long drive and arriving around 9.30pm on Wednesday night, Warren (hope i spelt it right) met us at the door, The place certainly has a lot of character and we were glad to meet a friendly person after a hard day on the building site, Warren made us feel welcome and accommodated us as best he could and...

Sadly for us all the hotels and other accommodation was full due to a golfing thing in the town. We found the place to be dirty and smelly. We didn't know this was a share room for about 8 people. The rock hard pillows reeked and there were prickles in the bed...YUK! We paid €10 extra for the bathroom but... More

I was good enough to GIVE YOU 10 EUROS REFUND, because you arrived very late ( 11 pm ), in a great rush to rejoin your friends, and did not ask for towel hire. You did not even bring your baggage to the room .Your husband said it was too late. You probably had towels in it !! You stayed... More

Arrived on a Friday night in late July with a friend. Met Joy who is friendly and welcoming. We had a room just off the kitchen which was comfortable and clean. We also had bikes which Joy allowed us to bring in with us (thanks). We did hear people coming in during the night but Joy had told us that... More

This was a good place for the cheap price. It was ideally located (though the TI initially sent my friend and I in the wrong direction). The service was very friendly, and worked with my friend and I even though we had to make a few last minute date changes. There was a nice little heater in our room, which... More

Management response:

The accommodation was comfortable and habitable, despite the fact that there are Renovations in Progress. The kitchen should not be used after 11 pm, so as not to disturb occupants on the Ground floor. Through the back door is an Atrium in progress - it is UNFAIR to call it a hole in the ground. It is at ground level... More

First the positives - Lovely place to stay. I was charged a single rate for a double room (many places don't make this concession to single travellers) and for 20 euro I got incredible value - a room with character and a bizarrely comfortable large double bed (room #3). Joy was very courteous and genuine and was very accomodating even... More

It is good to know that you appreciate all the efforts, time and expense to make a comfortable stay for guests. Thank you very much. You have hit the nail on the head - horrendous ongoing untrue and unjustified rumours are being spread around Kinsale about my Hostel. There have been many attempts to close it down !!!. And rogue...
