Staff did not advice us about what we could see and what we could do in Killarney... It was surprising for people working in an hostel not to know the places for a good restaurant in Killarney and leisures which were accessible in the national park....
Room was dirty. Walls filthy, holes I'm walls and ceiling. Bed linen had female head hair on it. I know it's a hostel but there is no excuse for a lack of cleanliness! They don't take payment by card either so after my long journey I was forced to go to the bank and withdraw cash. I have been in much better hostels.

They had everything a backpacker needs: Bed, kitchen, fridge, wi-fi and breakfast (which is always nice). I stayed 3 nights in a dorm and I think it was ok. Staff was nice and friendly and I enjoyed watching movies with them. Only thing I didn't like was the break between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM, when customers are not allowed to be in the hostel, when I was soaking wet after the rainy day in National park and I had to wait to get in. But other than that, nice place for cheap price.
The room smelled like mold a bit, the bathroom inside the room was old, but the water was nice and hot. I did not like there was no shower mat on the floor so when you step out of the shower there was water on the floor. Other than that the staff was super friendly and open the kitchen for us in the morning before breakfast started because we had to leave early in the morning. Nice place to stay and I like how big the kitchen was for cooking.
The staff was incredibly unfriendly, and you could tell they didn't want to be there. Everything seemed to be broken, or in the process of becoming broken. It was dirty, there was cobwebs everywhere, the sheets weren't changed after use, and the bathroom door didn't shut. There is a time slot: 2pm-4pm that no one is allowed to be there for " security reasons" so the staff has a break, but they sit upstairs on facebook most of the day anyway. The breakfast was good though. Cereal and toast.

Enjoyed my stay thanks to Jake & Erica. Nice warm, clean & convenient hostel.
Stinky, moldy and not clean. DISGUSTING. Very poor breakfast, toilet hadn't been cleaned for days.
very nice place,the brekfast is varied,the staff is very friendly,the only disadvantage is that i had to ring the bell in night,when every ten minutes somebody rings the bell the staff will be disturb all the time.A code-System would be better.The room and batthroom are cleaned up,the bed was very comfortable. I will come back,the hostel is recommanded,Françoise from Luxembourg
