It was a really pleasant place to stay. It was clean, the kitchen have everything that you need, the staff is really helpful. I definitely recommend this place. The bedroom was big enough for the 7 of us, the bathroom had hot water. You have wifi there, a nice lounge.

First of all: Killarney is a really great place and the hostel is just round the corner of the main square. So location-wise top score. The hostel itself is quite okay. We booked a room for two people. It was a bit stuffy and had a carpet floor, but it was okay. The problem was the bathroom... We shared one...

There's a reason why this hostel is rated one of the best in Killarney. Very easy to find, and in a great location to many tourist attractions including Killarney National Park (walking distance), shops and pubs. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The hostel itself was very clean, beds were surprisingly comfortable. The free breakfast is pretty standard, but...

I only spent one night in each town I visited on my journey through Ireland, except for this city. The reason I ended up staying 3 days, this hostel.
