Liked: Really friendly helpful staff, free wifi, basic breakfast included, good kitchen facilities. Note: If you are driving, there is street parking available free between 6.30pm and 8.30am. At all other times it is 1 hour pay parking, but there is a large carpark about 2 blocks away (on the same road) next to a church that you can park at free all the time.

Disliked: The floor of our room needed a sweep/vacuum - nothing disgusting, just a bit dusty.

Liked: The price was fantastic. Good location.

Disliked: Very very basic room - we stayed in a double room and it was just a bed, nothing else. Quite shabby looking but for the price you can't really complain.

Liked: Paddy's looks a tad shabby at first, but it's a really clean and comfortable hostel. Friendly, helpful staff. Had a well equipped kitchen, though despite only 7 people total staying whilst we were there, it felt quite crowded whilst cooking and eating dinner. Not a overwhelming atmosphere, but hard to judge in quiet season. Great location. Great/clean showers.

Disliked: Didn't dislike, but would be good if they had lockers in the rooms. Small lockers can be used in the common room area. Street parking not really available, though were recommended to use church carpark (free) about 2 blocks away, and had no problems.

Liked: It was very good value, especially with the bonus free night and breakfast included. Andrew was very helpful and hospitable. I happened to be one of the only guests at the time and he bumped me up to a private room. The hostel is also very close to Killarney National Park.

Disliked: It was an older building that seemed to have some problems with mould, though it was acceptably clean.

Liked: Probably the cheapest hostel in Ireland and definitely the cheapest in Killarney. Within a very short walk of the national park and the main street of Killarney. The Aussie bloke on reception was great so thumbs up. You can jump on a Ring of Kerry tour for 15 euros which is a bargain. All in all, impressed.

Disliked: I would suggest e-mailing them to confirm booking as I think they have a technical hitch with this website, no worries I got a room upgrade as a result.

Liked: Super cheap and central to the town but it's about a 10-15min walk from the main busstop. Andrew was helpful, made some good recommendations and joined us for a night out too. Definitely recommend the Ring of Kerry tour with the hostel - only 15 Euros - worth every penny especially if the weather is good!

Disliked: Didn't see any lockers?

Liked: Friendly staff, and a good place for a night's rest at a very reasonable price. Location in downtown Killarney is excellent: Good shopping in town and easy access by road to the beauty of the Ring of Kerry

Disliked: There was nothing I disliked. There is no luxury, but I did not expect anything more than I got.

Liked: Die Gästeküche war in Ordnung, das Früstück ebenfalls. Die Mitarbeiter sind total hilfsbereit und freundlich. Es war sauber genug und es liegt ganz nah am Stadtzentrum und ebenso am Nationalpark. Dunnes ist gleich daneben und es gibt auch freies W-Lan. Auch ein kleiner Fernsehraum mit DVDs ist da.

Disliked: die Bäder für die Zimmer im Erdgeschoss waren in der 1. Etage.

Liked: The free night is nice.

Disliked: There was a lot of mould in our room (on the curtains, in the washroom). We let the staff know though and the washroom was cleaned while we were gone for the day. I was also told the curtains were going to be washed, so it was nice to see that my concern was taken seriously.

Liked: It was friendly, simple and second to none in terms of value for money.

Disliked: It isn't finished yet. There was refurbishment work going on and this led to a number of little niggles like the lights not working in the shower.
