    We stayed here just for one night in a private room with ensuite and it was a great size; we didn't feel on top of each other, towels were included and was very reasonably priced. It's a big hostel but felt like a great one for meeting other travellers from all backgrounds and ages. Nice touch of breakfast included and decent check out time. Very close to the train station and short walk to main street. Only downside to this hostel is limited off street parking, you need to get there early.

    I committed to this hostel because it was reasonable and in close proximity to public transportation but treaded lightly because of the supremely average reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. Walking distance to the arterial restaurants and pubs and the bus station. The WiFi was decent. The real standout for me was the thoughtful staff. They were super helpful and informative and held onto a poster I forgot in my room for 3 days until I returned from Dingle. Bravo 👏

    Wonderful staff - very friendly and incredibly helpful. Conveniently located right across the street from the bus station and walking distance from plenty of good food and activities. Nothing fancy, facilities could do with updating - but we had a nice quiet stay with decent WiFi for when we were ready to play some Netflix and go to bed.

    Very close to the center of town, train station, and bus station. Free breakfast was very small, but it's free and convenient. The showers and toilets were very clean, although the water in the timed showers turned off every 10 seconds or so. I wish the shower water lasted more like 30 seconds.

    We stayed 2 nights in the 9 bed dorm. Pros: Good value, convenient location and light breakfast included. Working Wifi Cons : The 2 toasters in the kitchen barely work, and create much confusion/waiting queue in the morning. It wouldn't cost much to replace them with new ones. The bunk beds don't have a ladder nor a rail, so it can be challenging to get on or down the top bed. One keycard for 2 guests isn't convenient if we come back at different times. Out of the 5 showers, 3 were out of order

    We only stayed for one night - that was plenty. Checking in, the staff member who checked us in voiced clearly her frustrations with losing a fee to the webiste along with other issues when we were trying to settle our bill. She also did not welcome questions, like we were annoying. Breakfast was cereal, but there was no tea/coffee. The shower door didn’t close & there was no mat so it was slippery after use. There was a hole in the floor in our room hidden by a mat which could be a safety issue

    Location and staff were good but it was so outdated and dirty. We were in a private room and the floorboards were out of place (safety risk honestly), and the shower was clogged and grimy. There was no hand towel or bath mat and the towels provided were ripped, and there was a clump of hair on my friend’s pillow upon arrival.

    First time in my life getting bed bugs. Knew place was disgusting upon smelling room but town was fully booked due to All Ireland rematch that night. Sheets were dirty, beds were uncomfortable, and did I mention the bed bugs? Breakfast ran out of bread and jam before 9 am. One night is more than enough. Do yourself a favor and stay ANYWHERE else.
