My friend and I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm. The room was simple but not lacking. It had everything we needed (outlets, an hot shower, decently comfy, clean beds.) The view was pretty nice as well. The hostel owner/receptionist/bartender-extraordinaire had really good advice about where to go and was super friendly. We met some nice folks in the bar downstairs which drew us in with some live folksy-type music. Unfortunately we were only in Kilkenny for one night but I would definitely go back to The Metropole in a heartbeat if I ever found myself in the neighborhood again.
