very clean hostel although basic. Would recommend for a night in Kilkenny. Just a short walk to the main bars.

good hostel in the middle of kilkenny. very nice staff, big kitchen area and cool common room. only downpoint was no lockers in rooms, and the free lockers downstairs were broken so couldn't use those either.

We had initially looked in to staying in a hotel in Kilkenny but as we left it until last minute there was nothing affordable available. This hostel was so affordable and really central - close to the shops, restaurants and bars. The room was nice and clean and our room mates were friendly. There was a nice age mix too from early 20's to early 40's. We found the 10am check-out a bit early...especially after a night on the tiles! 11am or even 12 noon would have been preferable.

Very good hostel with nice staff! Only had a horrible shower with boiling hot or freezing cold water, but maybe i was just unlucky, don't know how the othera were. Overall it was a good stay :-)

Very basic hostel in heart of Kilkenny. I did like that hostel took place in this old building, it surely added the character of it. At least on the weekend room facing main street was a bit noisy as there were pubs just opposite of the hostel, but if you'll be the one heading to the pub, location will be suberb for you.

We have stayed there last year and I would come back again. It is all you expect from a hostel.

I loved this hostel. It was so cute! Staff was really nice and helpful! I had an entire 6 room dorm room to myself and it was so nice! Bathrooms were nice with soap and towels provided and the showers were continuous, which was nice, and it had a shelf and a hook! Bed was really comfortable too! They don't provide breakfast though. All around really nice hostel!

The check out is too early ( 10:00 in the morning), on the morning of our check out it was not even 10:00 when the guy that was cleaning the room knocked on the door and opened it straight away, there was just girls in the room and we all felt very uncomfortable. He should have waited for one of us to answer. It was very rude. Location just ok, Kilkenny is really small so you are never too far from the city center.
