Liked: Location. The staff (the Australian couple especially) were extremely helpful and friendly. Good size kitchen.

Disliked: Only two toilets available for our room (room of 10) and they were together with the shower. Lack of power points in rooms. Overall cleanliness / condition of the property (ie burnt out powerboard, mildew smell) Whilst overnight security was good, the door bell was extremly loud and kept us up on both nights. The fact that the hostel is shut between 2-4pm.

Liked: Staff extremely helpful and nice. 10 mins walk from train station. Supermarkets close by. Cheap.

Disliked: The doors and loud and really creaky so I was woken up a lot with people coming in and out, but that comes with a hostel. No lockers in room only upstairs.

Liked: Clean room. Good location: very close to the city centre and the National Park but in a quite area despite being on a main street. Friendly and helpful staff, breakfast ist ok.

Disliked: Our room (twin private room) had neither a table nor a chair, not even a hook to hang a jacket. Poor ventilation in the kitchen: when somebody cooked, the whole hostel smelled like food.

Liked: great location, friendly staff, free movies, free tea & coffee, toast and cereal for breakfast, nice atmosphere once paddywagon tour is gone, free night discount for 3+ nights

Disliked: building could use a serious deep clean, one shower drained very slowly and other was inconsistent in temperature, bathrooms smelled like chlorine after their cleaning, and i cant believe nobody has mentioned that PADDYWAGON TOURS stop here.. and that equates to noisy late nights of large groups of people traveling together

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.
