    I stayed for 3 days. I had a brilliant stay. It's situated on the main road into Tralee - a 2 min walk away. The manager is lovely and customer service was above and beyond. I was bought a hot water bottle at night! :) The wifi worked well, TV worked well, breakfast was good with 5 different kinds of cereal on offer, toast & jams, and SOYA milk in the fridge. Teas & coffees provided all day - which is amazing considering the good value. The shower was hot. Thank you, Castle Hostel :)

    As always my stay at the Castle Hostel was a pleasure to be remembered. I take a single room and its always spotless, warm and comfortable. Brand new showers and a comfortable bed. Great value too, especially when you book on line! declan kelly

    A small, cozy hostel. Very central location. Wasnt even close to full, so there was plenty of space, I dont know what happens if the hostel is actually full 😋 small breakfast included.

    Good room with an en suite and an area to make food. My only complaint was that the lady in reception when we arrived didn't know any local pubs where we could get food and watch the rugby match so we had to find one ourselves.

    When you have homeless people knocking on the door all the time, looking for a room to stay in, it’s not awesome. Even as a male, I was worried about my safety at times. Has a BnB vibe, which was a nice change from traditional hostels, but not really thrilled about the homeless always knocking.
