Great Location, basic dorm-style rooms, the heater worked when it wanted to, clean, social, cheap, communal kitchen and living room... what left me with good memories of this place was not the hostel itself but the people i met here. David, who works at the hostel, was the friendliest, most helpful people I met on the entire trip... means a... More

The place is great, the people are very nice, the situation is ideal in Killarney, close to Tesco and pubs. The room is all modern and clean. We had everything we needed for our 3 nights-stay with our 20 months toddler.

....all staff on the reception was nice! Always smiling! Ready any time to suggest great idea for the day! For sure if I will come back I will stay here! Reception open until 3am! Maybe they can work more with the cleaning during the day!

Stayed here on the 2nd night of our 4 day road trip round Ireland. I've never stayed in a hostel before so didn't really know what to expect, but from what I gathered it was pretty good in terms of hostel standards. Little tip though, ask for a room across from the main building, they are fairly new and much... More

Situated in the heart of Killarney this is an excellent hostel to base yourself out of for exploring Ireland's southwest. Whether it is the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, Killarney National Park or just for a good night out in one of Ireland's top tourist and party towns. Staff are all really friendly, beds are lovely and their showers... More

We stayed in a private room in the building opposite to the reception building (rooms that begin with an "H"), and I must admit: this is one of those occasions where you get a hostel with hotel-quality rooms. New modern furniture, extremely clean, perfect location (5 min walk from train station, bus station and killarney national park, and in front... More

Barely a hostel! We were in a 3 person bunk, and was the best hostel I've encountered so far. Bathroom was high level hotel worthy. Staff was friendly, breakfast was typical continental. Highly recommend for anyone staying in the area.

We arrived late and got shown to our outbuilding block, told how to use the key and such.. it very rarely worked and we panicked we had locked our belongings in our room. The room was very small, very old fashioned and the bed (if you can call it that) was seriously hard with very old sheets and one low... More

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. This hostel has been recently renovated. The bathrooms are modern however the water on the floor goes everywhere. The beds are comfortable and warm. Spacious room and power outlets and hanging space for all. Top notch. The breakfast is pretty average and the kitchen is crowded.

This was our third stay here. This visit was with my 9 year old daughter, my mum and my aunt (both 77 years old) and myself. We all love this hostel. Our family room was in the new block - double bed and 2 bunk beds. The room was meticulously clean (which meets my mum's high standards!). The beds are... More
