Liked: I liked cleanliness of my bedroom, helpful staff and discount at bike rental.

Disliked: A little bit annoying was the size of shower and the fact, that showers and toilets have light switch outside. Kitchen was a little bit dirty, but (except the pots and pans) it was mainly due to huge amount of people in kitchen at the same time.

Liked: Hostel is far from the road so no road noise, and the walls are thick and solid. Best night sleep I've had in a Hostel in Ireland so far!

Disliked: There was very little space for you to put your stuff when having a shower without it getting wet.

Liked: The staff were very helpful (despite being super busy). The hostel is quite large so lots of places for chatting, having a cuppa, drinking etc. WIFI signal only downstairs. Considering how big the hostel is, it is realitively quite. The showers/ bathrooms are pretty average. The 8-bed dorm is a good size although no lockers in the room. There were two power points for charging phones/ cameras etc. Location is great - loads of restaurants and pubs near by. There are stairs so be prepared!

Disliked: Linen is getting a bit worn. Parking is actually about 10-15mins walk down the road (but it is free!).

Liked: Great location, super-helpful staff, the computer & free wifi was great.

Disliked: Paper-thin walls between us & other rooms, really tiny bathrooms, the kitchen was a bit disgusting. We also had a skylight in our room - great for natural lighting during the day, but a pain when you're trying to sleep and the sun comes up at 4:30AM.

Liked: Extremely friendly and helpful staff, free wifi in lobby, a true 5 minute walk from the bus station, very clean

Disliked: it closes at 3am so if you're out partying later than that you will be locked out.. also you have to leave the rooms by 10am in the morning so you can't sleep in ever.

Liked: Quiant hostel located in the center of the small town. 5 min walk to the park. staff was very helpful with directions and advice. the kitchen was well-stocked and breakfast is included. There's one computer in the lobby that's free.

Disliked: Really only one thing to complain about...the shower wasn't hot. Not freezing, but definitely cold.

Liked: The hostel is located in the centre of Killarney (not that this makes a difference since the town is very small). Staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean. If you stay here you will get a discount for renting a bike at O'Sullivan's shop (whose bikes are excellent).

Disliked: There was only a single computer to use, so you have to queue for it (there is wifi though). The shared showers are not easy to handle since you can only push a button and hope the water will come out at a reasonable temperature.

Liked: Great staff, helpful with finding things to do and finding your way around Killarney. Great place to meet new people. Awesome showers, nice and hot! Good sized kitchen and eating area.

Disliked: It was stated Breakfast was included but all this entails is Toast and jam. maybe a better description is required because another hostel I was at said Breakfast included and it was a full spread.

Liked: We had a fantastic stay at Neptunes, would definately recommend to other travellers whether they are travelling for a longer period or staying for just the weekend. The staff are amazing and REALLY helpful!!!

Disliked: As we stayed in Novemeber it was pretty cold during the day even inside and then too hot at night with the heating on.
