    Best Location, unbeatable. The place was clean and my room came with a toilet and shower. There were no towel or soap but that's the nature of hostel, I guess. The reception was good, though we never interacted apart from the point of when we reached. For the price one pays, I think it is a very good deal.

    The hostel is in front of train station and bus station. Rooms are big enought but no lockers although there is a room where you can store your stuff near the reception. Bunks are a thing.. The lower bunk is too low.. Be careful with your head because you might hit it. Kitchen is ok.. But breakfast it's no so early so don't know what they give.. But it's propably juice.. Bread and is small so you might see all walking. I rented a bike for €15 at 10 Beech Rd.(sunday).

    The woman who checked us in was AWFUL. She kept telling us she was annoyed we booked through hostelworld because she looses money. Offered no suggestions of local things to do. Everything we mentioned doing she had a negative attitude towards. Stayed in a two person private with ensuite. Nowhere to lock up your belongings. Strong wifi in the room. Overall would not stay there again because of how awful our experience at check in was.

    nice stay, except for an elderly drunk who seemed to have worked at the hotel in years gone by and brought booze back intyo his room to drink there are fall down all over the room. Come the morning no doubt with a sore head the alcho demands that the toilet fan/light is switched off oblivious that the two other guests have used and are using the toilet shower. Then finaly the angry alcho shouts turn it off NOW! he then lept up and switched it off. we put it back on and he rambled to himself ...

    This hostel was fine, and it had a big kitchen with free breakfast. It wasn't unclean, just a bit old which made it look a bit less clean than it actually was. I didn't think the atmosphere was great.

    Need more variety for breakfast other than toast and dry cereal. Not sure bathrooms were cleaned daily? Great service with laundry.

    The railway hostel was a perfect location for our adventures in Killarney. For the most part the staff were helpful, one of the women working behind the desk was very short and kinda mean. She had a load and aggressive breakdown on the phone while my siblings and I were eating breakfast in the next room which took away from the present atmosphere and our overall impression of the hostel. My room smelled DANK as hell for the three days I was there and the bathrooms were a little small.

    3 out of 6 of us woke up with bed bug bites, there were 2 outlets for a room of 10 people, and the front desk receptioness obviously hated her job. Not mention they offer “free parking” which means 4 parking spots for the entire hostel. I now understand why it was so cheap, literally stay anywhere else.
