    I've stayed here many times before and as always, it exceeded expectations. Great spot with friendly, knowledgeable staff. Free parking is available on site. Breakfast is available if pre-ordered for an additional charge. It's located near to the start of the Waterford Greenway. There's a large supermarket as well as pubs and restaurants. I'll look forward to my next stay.

    The atmosphere was meh, not the greatest!!! Majority of the people living in the hostel worked there so they all generally kept to themselves/ other workers. Otherwise, the hostel was lovely!!! The dorm rooms are in the basement, but it was fine I found!!! Very close to everything, can’t complain otherwise :)

    Very good location. Good rooms and shower and bathroom. Guest rooms available but closed very early so couldn't avail of the facility. Exterior not very clean with cigarette butts all over the steps to the front door. Waterford City was the biggest disappointment-its is so run down and dirty-quite a come down after visiting Cork and Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way.

    I stayed for one night only for a weekend stop out over from Dublin. The property is just by the train station on the side of the city. Waterford is fairly small so everything are walking distance. Facilities were a bit basic and had seen better days. My room was also a bit crammed but for one night only I can't complain. Standard basic hostel. A bit overpriced but that is the standard for Ireland.
