“Good price/quality ”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

The owner is really nice and takes care of everything. We stayed with a few friends in a private room. The price was really cheap and included light breakfast and wifi. Would recommend this one for sure :) Would come there for a second time if around!

Stayed August 2014

Located in the centre of Tralee, just a 5 minute walk from the train station - perfect for interrailers ;) Nice rooms and very clean, also the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful! The price is also very good, and breakfast included!

The man who runs this hostel is so nice and so helpful! I was traveling alone, but didn't feel alone at all with the atmosphere of this hostel! I had a private room, #2 at the top of the stairs, and it was lovely! Tralee is a beautiful area, I highly recommend it!

The hostel is located on the main street (road) of Tralee. It is surrounded by many fast food places and a big parking space.
The rooms are quite small but they are clean and very well isolated. They have TV and free wifi. Breakfast is quite basic but enough.
The owner was very nice and gave us very good tips for our ongoing trip.
The hostel is nice, but it's located in a not so nice city.
Good value for your money.

We only spent one night here but it was great. Smack bang in the middle of town, friendly owners and cost next to nothing. Basic but very good. All the bars and takeaways are only a stones throw away. Tea coffee and a selection of cereals available for breakfast. All in all very good value.

My partner and I arrived with our 3 kids 10, 5, and a baby, Stephen welcomed us and was extremely helpful with the luggage and buggy, and was very nice and had a laugh with the kids. The room had 2 double bunks and 1 single -maybe a tad small for 5 people but was very comfy and clean.Tea/coffee cereal and toast are included, which is brilliant when you are on a budget and especially when kids Will only eat something small in the mornings. lovely stay -we Will be back
