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

lockers by the rooms need fixing, although they do offer a secure storage room


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.
