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: It was really close in the centre of town. Met some really cool people here and they had very good cooking facilities. The room was clean and beds/pillows were comfortable. Staff were really friendly and helpful in regards to planning activities in the area and giving information.

Disliked: The free breakfast is just toast so if you are used to something more substantial you won't get it. The shower door leaked water so the floor gets all wet every time you have a shower. They only turned the heating on late at night for a short while so the rest of the time the whole hostel was very cold (in winter). If you come in summer it won't matter.

Liked: Close to city centre and the Killarney National Park. The park was amazing and you could spend your entire trip in there, it's so beautiful with plenty of tall trees and history. Staff was fun and helpful. Free wifi was excellent and very handy! Clubs/pubs at night were a blast with plenty of live music!!
