Handy location in town but quiet position,no traffic noise,plenty of toast cereal and beverages next morning. Reasonable standard of cleaniness. Fuss free and good value for money. Friendly helpful staff, card entry to Dorms. Would stay again without hesitation.

The hostel itself is situated in a good area - right near the high street. The interior of the hostel (and its rooms) could use some updating as everything looked like someone decorated it 20 years ago and left it that way. But the vibe is wonderful. The staff was really helpful, especially when we discovered that the sockets in...

Staff were friendly and helpful. It wasn't luxurious, but had everything a traveler needs. We were a little intimidated by the gas stove/oven which we had never used before, but the staff helped us out! The continental breakfast was sparse but they did have something. Location was perfect, right in the center of town which has adorable shops for browsing...

I was in a dorm of 8 beds, at the end of April and out of 4 nights, I was alone for 2 nights. It is very well located, directly in the center of Killarney. It is a 5 minutes walk from the bus or train station and also 5 minutes (or less) from the entrance of Killarney National Park....

Neptunes has raised the bar for what I expect from hostels. Reception was extremely nice and I had a conversation with one of the receptionists. They also helped us print tickets and set up internet. No internet in rooms but I can hardly complain about that. Rooms were big by hostel standards. Bathrooms were clean. Will definitely stay here again...

The room was fine, the bath overall clean. Our bed had a old mattress that was worn through which was why I woke up with back pains. It was fine for one night but I wouldn't stay another. The room also didn't smell that nice when we got there. The mood within was great though! People were eating and talking...

Absolute jewel, but you have to book room in the new part of hostel, old part is not that impressive, very clean, ensuite rooms for as little as 19 euros per night, free parking, in the center of killarney

We stayed in two separate rooms at Neptune's and enjoyed both. The only reason we switched rooms was because we decided to stay a second night and the original one was reserved. My son described the en suite rooms as "regular hotel rooms without a t.v." and I think that's appropriate. The beds were fine. Perhaps the mattresses were thinner...
