The Hostel was immaculate with new beds and bedding which had been made up prior to arrival. Tom and his staff were incredibly friendly and Tom's knowledge of Ireland, places to go and what to see was amazing. For the self caterer cooking facilities were adequate but a little thin and in fairness the kitchen is a work in progress. Ever thoughtful Tom ensured we were able to store our motorcycles under cover and we had a restful night. Will definitely include a stay on our next Ireland trip.
Great facilities, everything looks brand new. The hostel is off the beaten path a little bit, but it makes for a nice, quiet stay.

Tom's Hostel is a very, very.... very nice hostel! Tom is a sympatetic person. He speaks a lot with us and he helps us.
Tom is an awesome guy, totally in love with his country. We stayed just for a night in his place, but had really good time, with him and other travellers, looking at the map, speaking about Ireland and travels. He's always smiling and have a lot of information to give. The place is quiet, small and clean. I will def recommend this "hostel" (it's more like home) if u want to find a quiet place to stay. ThanksTom
Tom is a great host: friendly and helpful. The hostel is basically staying in a separate part of Tom's house that is new, clean and well equipped. The only downside is that the location is a bit remote. Then again, there is so many spread out sights in Waterford County that having a car is pretty much a must.
Amazing Hostel!!!! I love this hostel!!! Tom is so kind and friendly.If i have a free time to go there , i'll choose it again.
The hostel is about 6km away from town and is very hard to find. Do not try to walk it from town! Other than being out of the way from Waterford the place was lovely and Tom was legitimately one of the nicest guys we have ever met! Would definitely stay here again now that we know where it is and how to get there.
My stay at Tom's Hostel Ireland was comfortable and I recommend it to other travellers. The kitchen isn't finished yet as plumbing remains to be done, but once that is complete the facilities rating will be excellent. In the meantime, Tom and his staff sort out the washing up and are very helpful. Tom is very knowledgeable about local and national Irish history. I thoroughly recommend staying at Tom's.
Wow! This adorable cottage looks more like a bed
Absolutely fantastic place! An idealic setting in the Irish countryside and you just feel infused with peace upon arrival. Tom made my trip to Ireland. Period. He has a vast knowledge of Ireland both its history and its people. He picked me up from town and was one of the happiest and most gregarious guys your likely to meet
tom and wife couldn,t make us more welcome toms place is in a lovley village with the town 30 minute walk away the room was clean and beds clean and comfy the comunial area was comfy but it is still on going as it has every thing but kitchen sink as it was not plumbed in or oven but that didnt stop my wife making egg/mushroom/beans on toast for 5. if you have transport (tom will take you to town if you havent)it is a good spot to explore the area also tom is very knowlagable in everything irish
Tom's Hostel is a wonderful place to relax and spend some time in a family-like atmosphere! Really enjoyed my stay there!
