    This is the best hostel I've been in! The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean with beds already made, and the bathroom is really good. There's also free tea and board games in the common area if you're in early from the night (which is likely given the size of Tralee). A couple of blocks away from the mall, and at a reasonable price, this is the hostel to stay in if you're visiting County Kerry.

    Great place to stay and extremely central. I upgraded to a private room and found it clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tea/coffee, toast and jam or marmalade . Towels and linen were supplied. The TV needed instructions 😄 The only downside was there is no parking on site as the hostel is on the main high street but nearby.

    Was a nice stay here, facilities were clean and good value for money. Only downside was that the walls were thin so did not feel super secluded even though we had a private room.

    Tralee was a halt for me to get to Dingle, and the beautiful humans who were taking care of the hostel turned it into a great experience! he town itself I found rather dull and there were noisy roadworks until like 12 AM. My room smelt strongly of paint but everything was really really clean, with a really nice bathroom. I had to work on my laptop until 6 PM the next day and the lads invited me to stay with them in the common room, which was really nice time. Gracias amigos! :)

    Great location with a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Good for getting away from the hustle and bustle, but still close enough to everything you need. Only trouble was finding a car park nearby

    I believe that this hostel is working on cleaning and updating it's facilities. It has a little more work to do. But it is still a great place to stay. Staff was friendly even though there was a language barrier, and security was good. The beds weren't in the best condition, but again, I believe they are working on upgrading things. I've stayed at better hostels, but I was comfortable, clean, and safe here.
