    1000 stars. The owner, Stephen, is one of the loveliest people I've met. He answered any questions I had and helped me plan my walk of the Dingle Way. I had concerns about a guest at one point and he dealt with it immediately. The hostel has a very cozy feel with a well stocked kitchen. The beds are super comfy (though quite creaky) and everything is kept spotless. Hands down the best place to stay in Tralee!

    We spoke with the owner who said the building had been his family's home. He recommended and called ahead to our next hostel where we made room reservations.

    Very small hostel, which is great if you're looking to meet other travelers. Stephen and Eric, the staff, were very polite and accommodating.

    Very Good

    This was one of my least favorite hostels I visited in Ireland. Maybe it was the downpour outside, my late-ish arrival, my snoring roommates, or the city itself, but I was happy to leave early the next. The hostel itself is a bit dark inside and could use a major update, but it was well kept and seemed clean. Staff were great though! I accidentally left my mouth guard and they mailed it back to me in the states. I paid shipping, of course, but that was SO much cheaper than replacing it.

    Three gripes with this homey hostel made my otherwise pleasant stay frustrating. First is that the owner was unconcerned that wifi had not been working in dorms which made forward trip planning difficult... for the easily distracted. Wifi WAS good in the busy sitting room downstairs though. In my 8 bed mixed dorm there were no lockers (!) and rather small metal-frame bunks 'up-graded' with firm 8' deep mattresses which left no height for comfortable sitting up. Owner and staff were lovely :-)
