    Superb

    Perfect location if you're looking to visit the medieval mile sights because St. Canice's is just next door. Emma and Fergus were friendly and helpful. I managed to borrow a hairdryer for free which was really nice. The hostel itself is cozy looking. Bathrooms were shared and along the corridor and they were clean. All in all a good experience.

    Close to the medieval mile and train station. Clean enough to live with for a night. Kitchen was well stocked and by far the nicest room in the building.

    The staff was willing to accommodate a later check-in time when I called in advance, although I did feel like they were slightly resentful about this. The staff the next morning were also less welcoming than staff that I have interacted with at other hostels. The beds were much more comfortable than others that I have slept in and it was nice to have an ensuite bathroom, which was cleaner and larger than others I have been to. Another minor downside was that there were no lockers available.
