Positive Reviews

Modern and well furnished

Reviewers have good things to say about the quality of the furnishing at this hostel. They like the mattresses, linens, and furniture. Many also comment on the high standards they found in the kitchen and common areas.

Clean and well-maintained

Guests think that this hostel is very well-kept by the housekeeping and maintenance staff. Everything at the hostel is in good repair, and the rooms are thoroughly cleaned by the staff on a regular basis.

Quiet and calm hostel

Reviewers note that unlike many hostels, this property has a quiet and calm environment. This makes it easy to get a full night's rest, even in a 10-person bunk room.

Negative Reviews

A bit out of the way

Disappointed travellers say that this hostel is not at all close to the centre of town and that the hostel website underestimates the time it takes to walk from downtown to the property. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from central Killarney to this hostel.

Breakfast is meagre

Guests are often let down by breakfast at this hostel. While it is complimentary, it only consists of toast and tea or coffee, which is not nearly enough to fuel a day spent exploring the sights of Killarney.
