    Super friendly staff (with a very cute dog also). Hostel is near the bus station and all attractions in the village. The door of each room is locked. However, we would have love to have a personal locker to put our own stuff. Everything else was perfect.

    This hostel was perfectly good. The staff was great and I even got to have several fun talks with the volunteers. The location is a bit far from the "exciting" area of town, but still within a 15 minute walk. And the doors were pretty squeaky and could use some grease. But otherwise it was fine! I was content with my stay there!

    Located at the end of town, but close to the Waterford greenway. The room I stayed in just had single beds, no bunks which I didn’t mind but doesn’t give much privacy. Staff were great and accommodating. Facilites were all clean as well. Would stay again if in the town.

    It was a very interesting experience , literally to say the least. As a single traveler who's retired yet young at heart, It felt so surreal and humbling to be cast back in to the mentality of communal sharing of living spaces with complete strangers. I loved every minute of it. Even some of the challenging parts.

    4-5 block walk from bus station; 2 dorm rooms in basement of guest house; low ceilings, poor air flow, musty. Kitchen, its appliances and adjacent eating/sitting areas needed thorough cleaning; no kitchen space to keep food that doesn’t need refrigeration; dorm room had 5 single beds (bed comfy) but needed general tidying/clean-up of past guests’ left items; no heat.
