After a very long travel day, the beds were extremely welcoming and comfortable! Being right next to the kitchen was the only downside because it was a bit loud!


I tried to cancel this 24 hours in advanced and they did not honor that. The hostel is dumpy with terrible service.

My husband and I stayed here and thought the hostel had a great location to the downtown area and the Ring of Kerry. Parking is limited, so get there and park early if you can. Kitchen was set up a bit awkwardly, but had everything you needed. Just an average hostel though.


So many interesting people stay in this hostel. The price is very reasonablle. Place is very clean until some guests get sloppy. I've been to Killarney many times and wouldn't stay anywhere else.The train and bus stations are directly across the street and its only a two minute walk to the center of town andf good "craic".


It would be nice if they had city maps available.

Booked this place twice for the weekend of the rally of the lakes and I'll be booking it again next year. Absolutely brilliant value and the location is perfect. Needs more places to park your car outside with cameras as last year a friend couldn't get one outside the hostel and ended up parking up the road and got stuff stolen from his car. Brilliant place overall.

The double room was rather nice but the overall athmosphere in the hostel was not. The staff was sometimes very unfriendly and the common areas were unpleasant.
