Stayed here on the weekend for Rod Stewart in an eight bed dorm with my friends, the hostel is in a perfect location for heading out on the town and all the staff were lovely! The facilities are great and the hostel is lovely and clean! Would DEFFO stay again!

I walked in in May - knowing nothing of the place. Upon realising how big the place is I was expecting more noise, less comfor and generally lower level of maintenance than a smaller hostel. I was wrong. The staff is nice and welcoming, there's a relaxed atmosphere and even with stags in I have no complaints about noise. The... More

The building was older, but maintained and clean. The staff was mostly helpful and gave good recommendations of what to do/where to go. The location was nice, near lots of the pubs and restaurants. The rooms were not cramped and good value for the amount of money.

Simple hostel that (I think) is ran by backpackers too... The staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. They offer free milk or tea for breakfast (no food thou) but you have to go early because milk will be finished by 9:00.

This is a great place! It is a little worn down and has basic facilities but it's made to feel incredibly welcoming. Ended up staying much longer than originally thought, just because of this hostel. There is a totally usable kitchen. The lounge is small yet social. The wifi is free, however won't work in the dorms, so the hallways... More

Myself and a group of friends from all over Ireland were having our annual meet up and decided that Kilkenny would be the spot we'd stay. Rather than us all stay in different locations, we decided to try and book the same place and would look into staying in a Hostel, luckily The Kilkenny Tourist Hostel had enough room for... More

The location of the hostel was perfect. The staff were really friendly and informative about everything to see/do in Kilkenny. The kichen was a great place to cook and there is a Dunnes supermarket just down the street if you want to buy food. The only negative is that the building is slightly old and could do with a makeover.

This was a good place to stay for the price range. The beds were quite hard but the rooms we're very clean. The showers and bathrooms were very very clean I was really impressed with that! They also offer free towels which is not the case in other hostels we stayed in!

As soon as you enter you feel very at home. The staff were friendly and helpful and the door code is changed regularly for security. It is in the heart of Kilkenny and very close to all sites - particularly as Kilkenny itself is a compact tourist location. Excellent sleep and was able to leave bags during the day. No... More
