Liked: Very very good value for money, especially if it means you get a bed for 8 euro per night!. It was a decent location, close to the city centre - although the city is very small. One particular staff was extremely helpful and was always looking out for my well being. She even helped with organising a discounted Ring of Kerry tour for me. hostel was relatively clean and you had a whole bathroom you could use. Plus breakfast was provided! They had wifi and enough powerboards for everyone, especially since I was staying in the 12 bed.

Disliked: There wasn't much to dislike!

Liked: The staff was very very friendly, and helpful. They run a tour of the Ring of Kerry which I believe is open to anyone staying there for two nights. My friends and I drove ourselves, so the staff offered us a complimentary third night instead of the tour - a totally unnecessary and very friendly gesture!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location is great, you are about 1 block away from the main street and a 10 minute walk from the National Park. The place was warm, the kitchen was always clean, and the staff was excellent.

Disliked: The kitchen closes at 10 pm and there is a time between 2 pm and 4 pm where no one is able to let you in to the hostel.

Liked: Great location, clean, great shower,clean towels provided for €1 , friendly staff, and inexpensive. Would certainly go back again

Disliked: Was in a private room which though very basic was clean and had a good en suite/shower. However, could have done with a wardrobe or a simple rail (or even a couple of hooks) to hang clothes

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: 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?
