Large kitchen was good. Not nearly enough plugs in the rooms and wish the WiFi extended to the other floors. Locks on the doors were a bit sketchy and with no lockers in the room your stuff was rather unprotected. However the staff was great as well as the location.

Great location in a fun city. The hostel was nice and the staff very friendly. Cash only though so be ready when you arrive.

This was by far the best hostel we stayed at during our girls trip this October. We arrived late and Maggie at the front desk was incredibly accomodating, orienting us to the hostel thoroughly. We were provided free towels, which was amazing. The hostel itself is very unique- the building is like and old house and makes you feel like you're in and old mansion. The showers were amazing and nice and hot. There's a common area with a working fireplace. Thanks for an awesome stay!

The hostel is close to everything in Kilkenny and has great atmosphere! The livingroom is super cosy with it's fireplace, when you don't feel like going out! Wi-fi doesn't reach all rooms but hey, just go to the kitchen or common room and you'll be fine! Super friendly staff and NO curfew!

free big lockers, working wi-fi and showers, good amount of toilets, cozy living room with fireplace and bookshelves, wooden stairs and vintage furniture with carpets that make it look like a family-house, quiet during the week, three pubs right out the door, the castle and the abbey at short distance. Only issues: it can get a bit cold some mornings if you forget the heater off and gets crowded and noisy during weekends, as many hostels in Ireland. wi-fi doesn't work in some rooms of 2 floor.

I found it odd that we had to pay cash, no credit or debt. Very nice place though and super easy to find!

Great place to stay but I do wish the wifi was in the dorms, not just the kitchen and common room. Other than that it was awesome

We loved our stay here, arriving in the afternoon to a quiet, clean hostel. It's very homey, and comfortable. Kitchen is awesome and unlike most other hostels it is a decent size for a lot of people and has everything you need. Lovely helpful staff here too! We would definitely stay here again!

As a single traveller, I found the staff at this hostel incredibly helpful for recommendations on what to do and where to go! Rooms, bathroom, kitchen, everything was clean. You can tell they take pride in their hostel. Great atmosphere!

Only stayed here one night, but I had the whole room to myself so it was an awesome night's sleep :)
