Friendly staff but appalling condition in private room. The floor had sticky stuff beside bed. The sink had mould, as did the walls of the main room. Shower sprays in all directions and with no mat the water is trailed throughout the rooms. Floors were not clean. Bed was worst hostel bed ever, thin and uncomfortable, mattress is too small for the bed frame. Pillows coarse. Dirty towels given (full of other people's hair!) Grateful for the loan of a baby's cot but very wary that cot was clean.

I had a really great time at Neptun's. The staff was really friendly and helpful, it was clean and nice and i really enjoyed the multicultural atmosphere. The hostel is located right in the town center, that is awesome. It has a good kitchen and i really liked the idea of leaving your spare groceries for other travellers. Of course my room was rather small and the breakfast quite basic, but that was absolutely fine with me, because it's a hostel, not a hotel. And it's really cheap, too. Great!

I thought the room was a quite cramped for the 8 bunker that I was staying in. The bathrooms were kind of dirty and there weren't enough facilities for the size of the hostel. Other than that, it's right where you want to be if you want to be close to the night life and city center type atmosphere. Staff was great.

The hostel was a regular hostel, but the staff made it fantastic - they were friendly, helpful & accommodating. One person we were travelling with had hurt her foot the day we arrived - staff voluntarily provided us with ice packs and crutches and did everything they could to ensure we had a good stay. They also made some great recommendations on pubs and restaurants. The location is also excellent - Right downtown in Killarney, but tucked away so that you cannot hear the busy downtown.

The only problem we had with this hostel is that you have to be at the hostel by 3am, so If you want want to go out you have to hurry up. In addition when we arrived (at 3am) there was people going out and out until near 4am that we went to sleep. In my opinion is OK, If they want to close the door for security like a lot of hostel, but the people they have for security outside controlling all the people that comes in, they can stay inside and control the people that wants to go in late at night

Only thing that ruined it was some bloke snoring very loudly. However I understand that it's a hostel, not a hotel. Overall it was a good hostel :)

Very good hostel! Across from our room construction is going on. It was our 'natural' wake up. 8:00 AM, so not too early.

Warm welcome by staff. Excellently run hostel & well located. Very clean and tidy. Good sized rooms and good lounge area plus use of a computer. The kitchen has all that you need & is efficiently and regularly cleaned throughout the day making it the best hostel communal kitchen we have come across. Very good breakfast provided. Free parking is 5 minute walk away.

This was my third stay at Neptunes. As always, great staff, great facilities and an overall nice and welcoming atmosphere. In a great location in Killarney, close to the bus/train but also just off the main street in town. I will definitely be staying at Neptunes again during my next visit to Killarney!

We stayed here nights 10-12 of 14 in Ireland. It was our jumping off point for Blarney Castle and Dingle. The location was great, easy to find and just off the main road, maybe 10 minutes walk from the train station. The front desk was super friendly and helpful. Our room was in a separate building, which I thought could create security issues, but I never saw the outside door being left open. The room was clean and neat. The common areas were tidy as well. There is a grocery right across the st

Most Excellent stay----the location was alittle hidden but that gave amore quiet and secluded feel even though right in the center of town, All the Staff I encountered , Michael, Peter and Juliette were most gracious and genuine in any and all assistance---- the quick wit and jovial attitudes were infectious ----really and sincerely loved it, Highly recommend it to any and all----ive stayed at varied number of hostels and this ranks right up there at the top. Clean efficient, Safe rooms too!

Just not enough pressure in the showers.

I stayed one night at this hostel and the location is perfect, located next to the Killarney National Park & Ring of Kerry. Killarney is not a very big town but in spite of that you can find a lot of different places to stay during the evening/night. The only negative thing was the kitchen. It was clean enough but could be a little bit cleaner. And maybe you should invest a few euros to replace these terrible tebalecloth;-) But definitely a good place to stay, great atmosphere and freindly staff
