Guide Books Mention:

'In a rambling 1770s Georgian townhouse, this wonderful independent hostel has a charming, cosy sitting room warmed by a glowing open fireplace, and a timber- and leadlight-panelled dining room. There's a decent self-catering kitchen and staff are ace.
An excellent notice board lists gigs and events around town as well as info about tours. The staff also chalk up the best cheap eats and places for a pint on a blackboard in the reception area'

" This place is really sweet. Although it was really quite and didn't have much social atmosphere st all, I had a really lovely time here. It's a really nice place to relax. Kilkenny is adorable and everyone who works here and lives in the town is gorgeous. I didn't want to leave! "
