Well the word Excellent comes to mind, Phenomenal also does as well due to its unique location right on the Ring of Kerry, Price was awesome. Staff were amazing and really made the stay that much more enjoyable. Went to a local Irish football match which is a mixture of World Football, Rugby, and even Basketball. You just can not... More

The service is really welcoming and helpful. We called at last minute to see if there was any spot available, they told us no. But then they got a cancellation and the call us back. We really appreciated. Rooms are great, breakfast is provided and wifi works well. Great situation to start the Ring of Kerry.

The Sleeping Camel is probably the best hostel I ever stayed in. It's really spacious with small dorms and space to put your bags. It's super clean with plenty of showers and toilets. It has a lovely garden to sit in or hang washing. Lounge room feels like home and breakfast is plenty. Chris is the most helpful host and... More

Our double ensuite was clean and comfortable, among the better hostel rooms we stayed at while touring all of Ireland. The self-catering kitchen area was large and clean and there was ample space for hanging out away from the room. Chris had a lot of info for exploring the area and was very welcoming.

I stayed here in Sat 2nd & Sun 3rd July 2016. I had a really pleasant experience. Firstly , as many have also said, Chris is a terrific host and genuinely friendly. I had a twin room and it was perfect for what I needed, which was just a base as I climbed a mountain on the 3rd. All the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Sleepy Camel after hiking for 3 days on the Kerry Way. The staff/owners were so nice and welcoming and incredibly helpful with recommendations, etc. The beds were comfortable and the hostel was clean. We loved the clean and stocked self-service kitchen, and the pretty eating areas. Lots of big windows... More

Great Hostel. Walking the Kerry way with a Rucksack and a tent you sometimes have to rest and recover energy indoor, in a real bed, with a nice kitchen and a comfy enviroment. This is exactly what the sleepy camel offers. The hosts are great. Chris even let us use the toilet after we checked out - without having to... More
