Stayed here for two nights during a two week trip through Ireland. The location was great, the staff were friendly, but the rooms weren't clean. There appeared to be mold on the wall in the bedroom near the ceiling.

The location is perfect, 5mins from train and bus station by walking. The staffs are very friendly!!! A man who lends me the towel, I'd like to say thank you. ;-) The room doesn't smell well!!!!! It's not a big problem tho. We will stay again:-)

We took a chance on this hostel despite some bad reviews. We were attracted to the location and that they advertised discount bike rentals and breakfast. We arrived to find out they no longer offered discount bike rentals and were given conflicting and confusing information about parking. We were in a dorm with 8 beds but only had access to...

My friend and I stayed here together sharing a double room a month or two ago and liked it. The beds were comfy and warm, the pillows generous. The walls looked like they'd been painted willy-nilly with a stray paintbrush in a weird shade of cat-sick but the swipes done over the lighter shade of catsick underneath all came together...

I would thoroughly recommend this small and friendly hostel. Excellent location in Killarney. Basic and clean accommodation and very good value for money. Staff are very friendly and helpful. THe Shire bar next door is also owned by the hostel so well worth a visit. THe manager, Roger, was very welcoming as was his staff. A group of us were...

Great location near the center, common room was comfortable and there's a breakfast included but if you come late, there is only toast with no jam left... Dorm rooms are small and there's only ONE toilet and shower for all the rooms that don't have ensuite, so in the morning I had to wait to get to the bathroom and...

Having read the reviews we were looking forward to our stay here. The location was excellent but everything else wasn't. It was hard to find someone to check us in. The place in general wasn't very clean, it smelled and the decor was weird! The common area looked a bit nicer. We stayed in a private ensuite room. It wasn't...

Very nice hostel. Clean, safe, and with helpful staff. Ideally situated in town, and close enough to the national park that we were able to walk there (~25-30 mins). Only had one shower, but it wasn't much of a issue since the hostel wasn't full. Kitchen was also not very clean, but not a huge deal. Would definetley recommended, great...

The staff were friendly at this hostel. The beds were soooo comfortable and the bathroom was large and clean. The shower worked the best out of any hostels at which we stayed (we stayed at seven during our trip). Our four person room had two outlets, which is pretty generous and very fortunate since all of us seemed to need...

If you are visiting Killarney please stay in this hostel. I loved the place. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Location is very convenient in city centre. Pubs and night clubs are very close. Hostel has its own pub.
