    Great location! 10 mn walk from the bus station to travel around in the county (Killarney, Dingle...) and 5 mn from a Lidl supermarket. Owners are really nice and they'll be glad to help and give you some informations. Bathroom are really clean and spacious. Dorms are very comfortable, with a wooden floor, furnitures for your personal stuffs, light beside your bed and a towel for your stay. Perfect place to stay one or more nights during the time you visit the County of Kerry.

    Steven is a great personality, friendly and helpful, the hostel looks some outdated, but is really nice with friendly staff. You get have quality for your money, free tea and coffee, though breakfast is not served, there is a kitchen, with a refridgerator. The hostel is located in the center of a cute tiny town, with possibilities to walk and sightseeing. The town has a nice atmosphere.

    Best Hostel I've been to with the most closet space. It has a dressing table and a free flow of coffee and tea. I was there for my graduation and they had an iron, hangers, lots of drawers, 2 mirrors (one in the toilet and one at the dressing table) and really good lighting during the day. The locations is awesome. It is opposite my favourite restaurants and it is right in the middle of the city. Highly recommended.
