    This is a small hostel and it's not the most social place (more inviting common spaces would be nice), but it's clean, quiet, and well-located, an easy walk from the bus station and the city center. I had a private double which was decent value even as a solo traveler, and would be a great bargain for two.

    Castle Hostel is really clean and provided plenty of space in a room with me and 5 friends. Staff are so friendly and helpful with any questions you might have. The location is right in the centre of Tralee and walking distance from bars, restaurants and shops.

    The place it’s self is a bit on the older side. But it is functional and exceptionally clean. The keener is a lovely man who was very welcoming and helpful. I was running late for check in and gave him a call he was happy to stay later and welcomed me with a smile.

    They owners really try very hard and give their best to make sure the hostel overall is clean and you have everything you need. I had a private room and am glad I did, because I wasn't too sure about how a dorm would be. Everything's just quite old and could really need a renovation. It's not very cozy and quite dark. It's convenient because it only takes a 5 Minute walk to the bus/train stop where the bus do the Dingle Peninsula leaves - which is pretty much where you wanna go in the area.
