    An excellent hostel a short walk from Tralee train and bus station. Out room with ensuite facilities was perfect for us. The staff were very helpful. The hostel works hard to keep its ecological footprint low.

    Stayed for one night only. Also stayed at 6 other hostels. Pro: 1. Lockers with the lock and key on the first floor so no dragging of the luggage to the second floor. 2. Location very good though I arrived late night and left early AM. 3. Not sure about breakfast as I had left before that. Tea and Coffee was available but just regular milk. No Oat milk. 4. Paper towels and dishwasher. Con: 1. Can have curtains on each bed 2. More hooks to hang stuff 3. USB charger in common area and by bed

    The ensuite dorm room the bathroom was located in the hallway and used by so many people that one often had to wait. The owner promised to correct the mistakes at once, but did not compensate for getting less than promised. On the positive side, the dorm room was spacious and the hostel clean. The location is central.

    We found Castle Hostel to be excellent on many fronts. Firstly, it's very neat, clean, modern and organised. Secondly, the people there (Stephen and the young helpers) were all very friendly and helpful with everything. Thirdly, it's very central in Tralee, so everything is just outside the door, or within walking distance. And free parking is just up the road a hundred yards or so. We had a very positive experience there and would recomend it to anyone.

    We rent a room in this hostel way too expensive 82€). The room didn't even have a window. We couldn't sleep because of drunk people coming and going noisly, in the morning noises was made since 6.30 am. The atmosphere inside wasn't nice and gave us nightmares. We were suppose to stay a second night in ten days but we will cancel it. Nice b&b can ne found for less than that and will even provide breakfast.
