My friend and I did not have a good experience. No one was ever at reception. When we were going to check out at 10am we had to go wake up the staff member to pay. The showers were dirty and the hostel didn't have a very welcoming feel to it. Unfortunately it is the only hostel in Kinsale. Not worth its value.

The hostel was in a great location, and the staff was very kind! The 8 person dorm was a little tight and quite cold during the day. The upstairs bathrooms are also much nicer than the ground floor. The wifi was spotty at night, but still worked pretty well.

The hostel is reasonably close to town with many attractions within an easy walk. The workers were very friendly and helpful.

The majority of the guests staying there were university students going to the local university that did not have housing arranged yet. The bathrooms were not clean, there were clumps of hair on the walls of the shower. CLUMPS. the floors in the bathroom were unclean, and there was a distinct odor in the hostel. This hostel was one of 5 hostels I stayed at in Ireland on this trip, and this was the only one that did not feel like a place I was excited to stay at.

The atmosphere was really great at this hostel! We got to meet new people and enjoyed hanging out in the common spaces. It was a slight walk out of town but was also close to a grocery store which was nice. The kitchen was also small but totally usable and practical. The room was very nice and clean. We would definitely stay here again!

This was a nice hostel to spend a night or two at. The hostel had good kitchen facilities, sufficient bathrooms, and a nice common gathering area. The hostel was quiet and the beds were comfortable.

Cute little hostel in an amazingly pretty town. Good internet and communal sitting rooms. Room door had a lock or but didn't have a locker or main door lock, but has a pretty safe vibe so wasn't a worry. Supermarket next door.
