We were a bit disappointed about our en-suite bedroom when we arrived, because it had no toilet, just a shower. However, after we spoke to the staff, we got the room cheaper and changed the room for our second night. The staff was very friendly and had open ears for all our sorrows :D thanks so much!
Modern and efficient hostel, but a bit unpersonal. Fine rooms, but no soap or towels in the bathroom.
Killarney is absolutely beautiful! The hostel staff were really helpful, they had small lockers available for rent (from what I can remember, they were free, but you had to put down a deposit at the start) that could hold passports and cash (they weren't big enough for laptops). The lockers were in the front reception, no lockers in the rooms unfortunately. The wifi was pretty decent, bathrooms clean, need more power outlets in the room. There's a good kitchen and a big communal eating space.
The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The bed was unfortunately the worst I have ever tried to sleep on. If they could upgrade the bed and pillows this would be an excellent place to stay.

Lovely place to stay. The staff are friendly and the facilities are just what I required. In the centre of Killarney it is well situated for nightlife and travel to the local attractions.
Nice place. Standout point for me was that the staff were really great, especially with advice on hiking and trails etc. There are just a few things I think some people may want to consider - there were building works going on outside - and they started at about 8 every morning. For us this wasn't much of an issue as we were getting up early and going out anyway. The other thing is that our room was very small, and there was no wardrobe and no lamp. Apart from this we really liked it here :)
The hostel was in a good location. Staff was very friendly and informed. Told me loads of places to go and eat. Breakfast was the norm. Showers were hot. Seemed like a very busy and friendly place to stay.
Fantastic hostel in the centre of Killarney. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hostel was very clean, and it had a good atmosphere. Was only planning to stay there for one night, but ended up staying for three nights :)
Very friendly and helpful staff, simple, but clean rooms, big kitchen My friends and me really enjoyed our stay in Killarney and in Neptunes Hostel. Thank you!
The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location is pretty nice as there are plenty of things to do within walking distance, but... the hostel just had a really dirty feel to it. You know those hostels where you go out of your way to make sure your bare feet never touch the ground? That's this place.
Excellent value for money. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. There is only one internet terminal available and sometimes that one doesn't work. They have a curfew at 3am, but even the night clubs in town close at 2.30am, so that's nothing to worry about. No lockers in the dorms. Good common areas to pass some time in and in general a good atmosphere. All in all a fine hostel to stay at.
Amazing showers! Was really close to town and close to train station, really good breakfast and lots of room in the kitchen! Only wifi in the lounge but it was okay! Would absolutely stay again!
This hostel was amazing! The staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful, the beds were comfy, the bathrooms were clean, the showers were hot and not weak like many hostels . The breakfast was standard for a hostel but it's alwAys nice when there is cereal to go with your toast as well! Also super close to enter the national park as well as on the main roads so you have everything you want close by. Stay here !!
Hostel is very nice. People very helpful and averything tidy and clean. Bench at the commun room and reception are not very comfortable, but the rest is ok. Rooms are comfortable and also beds are. Really well located in the centre of the town. Very recomendable!!!
