Great hostel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Facilities were fantastic and everywhere was spotless. I was with 2 teenagers who were equally happy. They were in a different dorm but I never felt concerned.

The self catering kitchen could be bigger as there isn't much room to cook and clean up if there is a crowd in.

Problem with shower: water only lukewarm at best, but the flow of water was very weak indeed. Other hikers (12 other hikers ) had the same opinion. Please fix this asap as it marred an otherwise great stay!

Lovely location, relaxing atmosphere. The open air corridor to the bedroom was a bit of a shock, could be a bit unpleasant in colder parts of the year.

WE enjoyed our 2night stay very much. Our room and facilities were good and we all enjoyed the breakfast. First time in a hostel for me, but certainly not the last.

We stayed in Knockree while walking on the Wicklow Way. The hostel is located just 200 meters from the Wicklow Way so it is a very convenient stay. The staff itself is used to hikers staying here so they can give very good advice . The breakfast is good value for money. The room was very clean and the facilities were perfect. The only downside is that they were unable to prepare us a lunch pack (as advertised) but they allowed us to take anything we needed from their "free food" fridge.

Fantastic hostel and location but bring your own beer unless you want a 5K walk or an expensive taxi to the nearest pub or shop. We will be back for sure. Loved it. Thank you :)

Security: anyone having an electronic key could have entered the hostel with friends and staid for the night, it might be a good idea to have someone check the entrances at night.
