The hostel was alright. It's close to the centre, the room was clean. It was quite noisy, party music and shouting until the early morning. Staff: maybe a smile would be nice here and there.
We had a great stay. Staff were very friendly and the Hostel was excellently located in Killarney town. Free parking was also a bonus.
You got your money's worth, defiantly worth the 10 euro stay. Tv on too much in only common area so hard to talk to people. Doors very completely close on dorms but just pull shut if that bothers you.
The hostel is in a great location, it is clean and the facilities are fine. However the receptionist was a bit unfriendly. Of course, this wouldn't let me discourage you from staying here. Really great hostel overall!
Exellent staff and good atmosphere! I stayed at Owl room(9beds) for 4 nights. Room, kitchin, toilet,bathroom were also clean. but room was cold. Especially staff was so kindly and helpful and location is realy good. It's close to bus station. if I visit Killarney again,I'll stay this hostel absolutely! めちゃお気に入りのホステルです！

Have been coming to Killarney Railway Hostel for years, would not want to miss it. Staff is super friendly and helpful, and while it's often busy it is situated in a quiet location which we appreciate. Showers could be warmer and the common area/ Dining room is not very comfortable to spend a long time there, but the value for money is great in our opinion.
Hostel was really nice. Stayed 2 nights, restrooms clean, kitchen clean, breakfast was toast butter jam and cerials.
It's really close to the bus station! The staff is helpful and nice! The citchen is a little bit small, but you find everything there! I'm not shure if they change sheets always, so make shure!! But everything else is really clean! Just a few creepy people are hanging around in the dining area! Close to the city, near to the national park! I would stay there again!
The staff really ruined this stay for me. The two female staff were very unwelcoming, unhelpful, and at times down right rude! I didn't feel as though I could ask them anything about activities or for advice because of this. The male member of staff who worked nights was so friendly and happy though! The location is good and it is very cheap which is also a plus. The other people staying in the dorm were quite inconsiderate, and the showers weren't great. Not a very pleasant stay unfortunately.
was clean and safe. very conveniently located and great value for money!
Most people just eat two toast for breakfast. If you say to the customer only two toasts are permitted per customer, it makes you sound cheap. And the rest of my stay was pleasant and lovely. Do not cut yourself short for a piece of toast.

Nice and homely hostel with a lovely kitchen and big rooms!
If they're not going to provide bed sheets for free, they shouldn't include blankets either unless they plan on washing them. The blanket that came with my bed smelled like B.O. The bathroom was incredibly dirty. The showers function like the sink faucets in a lot of cheap bathrooms, meaning you push a button and get 5 seconds of water before it shuts off. Nevertheless, if they worked on the cleanliness issues, this would be a pretty decent hostel.
The staff were immensely helpful and very positive. I enjoyed their input and their reccomendations were fantastic. I loved all the little nooks and the different names on the rooms. Our room was clean and well lit and I loved the French doors. Someone on the first floor though smoked a lot in the shared bathroom/toilet which made an awful stink in the hostel and gave me a bit of a headache. That was the only down side to the entire stay. Overall really happy and will recc to others.
