    I’ve backpacked all over Europe and I have never had a better experience at a hostel. Not only is it clean, secure with lockers in dorm rooms and locks for a deposit, as well as close to the town center about a 7 minute walk. But the best thing about this hostel is the sense of community. You feel welcome as soon as you arrive and if you need anything not only the staff but the other guests are happy to help! Kinsale is a lovely town, you’ll love it!

    I was immediately welcomed by the friendly staff of the hostel, they gave me great information about what to do with my short time in Kinsale, the bed was comfortable, and it was a great value for my money. I would definitely stay here again.

    The best option in town. Loved the glass gazebo room. Alex was the most friendly, helpful person he could possibly be. Other staff were also kind. We really enjoyed our stay.

    The hostel is just a 5 mins walk to center of town. Alex at reception was nice. Told me about places for food and places to visit. It had a kitchen with lots of basic spices needs. The lounge area is nice in like a glasshouse. The parking though was disappointing. The parking area had a lot of potholes that were difficult to manoeuvre with. I grazed the underside if my rental there yikes

    The staff is nice and friendly. The beds were relatively confy but noisy. There was only 2 plugs for 8 people and no personal light, this was not enough, especially when people have their phones, tablets, computers and other equipment to charge. the shower and toilets were small and not very clean. A car park was available if needed. The hostel is in a quiet street, above a petrol station and near Lidl. It's 10min walk from the city center, which is convenient. No breakfast but you can cook
