The place is very clean and everything you might need is within walking distance (grocery shops, pubs, coffee shops and the bus station). The staff are super friendly and I really enjoyed hanging out with them and other... More

We went with a double room which had all of the basics, bed, tv, bedside lockers, bathroom with an electric shower. Everything... More

Good, free breakfast in the morning, which is always welcome. Wifi in the dorms - great. Owners and staff were really very pleasant and helpful. Ideal location... More

I landed at Castle Hostel by chance and it turned out to be a warm and hospitable place. The dormitories are well-kept, beds made and toilets clean; the kitchen is well equipped and breakfast is provided; wi-fi facility, transport time-tables and the hostel's proximity to the bus station makes it a convenient place. Tralee is a beautiful place, with much... More
