The only down side to the first level room is being able to hear the front door slamming shut, so maybe something that quiets that a bit-- otherwise, it was excellent!

A lovely hostel! The fact that it's smaller makes things a little more intimate and you generally meet everyone who's staying there with you. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a little mixup with our booking and they were great trying to make up for it and make sure our stay was great. The location is great as well. It's a little walk from the bus and train stations, but right outside the heart of Killarney and a hop, skip, and a jump from the National Park.

Awesome value for the money. Very small common area enough for four people. Kitchen and common area close at night. Would definitely stay again

No light in the bathroom. When we notified staff, we were informed it was a reoccurring issue and no effort was made to fix it. We then had to shower with the door ajar

Very warm welcoming by the staff, good place to stay. A bit pricey (comparing to Portuguese standards, but not to Irish ones, i believe). Like everything in Ireland, the check-in is a bit early for long-distance travellers. Good location, and a great atmosphere, very much because of the staff!

Although we arrived 2 hours late we were welcomed warmly and shown to our room. It was spotlessly clean and perfectly comfortable. We had a quiet night, despite it being a busy Saturday! Breakfast in the morning was tea or coffee, toast with a choice of spreads and cereal. Overall we were very happy with our stay and think this was excellent value for money. I have stayed in other Killarney hostels and this one was by far the best and I would happily stay again.

Double room shower flooded. Drainage slow. Twin bedroom bathroom door needs fixing. Hard to climb up bunk bed due to low ceiling.

A nice place with free wifi (although we didn't really get to use it), free breakfast and clean bathroom and bed. Honestly, for 9€ a night I could not find anything to complain about. I'd definitely go back.

The room was supposed to be twin but it was one double bed. It shouldn't be announced as twin. There is curfew but at 4 am so I think it is more than enough. This info should be included in the description of the hostel as I was about not to book due to the curfew

Overall a very nice hostel in a really good location. Definite value for money and really good kitchen facilities.

Staff was freindly, attentive, and helpful. The facilities are clean but run down. Rooms have poor air circulation. It's a hostel, it was inexpensive, and it was just a place to rest for the night.

There is no place to hang out for solo travelers, the kitchen closes early, so you are either staying in your room or going out. The hostel is very small and in desperate need of more bathrooms for the dorms. There was technically only one real functioning bathroom for 16 people. (the tv room bathroom was disgusting). Other than that, the staff was very friendly!

I stayed with a friend just one night. well, You get what you pay for. The location is good (killarney is not that big). The kitchen closes too early and the common room is too small and not confortable. If I had to come back i would choose a different place to stay.
