Liked: Security

Disliked: You really have to search for its location. Bathrooms are horrible and if you book a double room at this place, you'll get a 4-bed bunkbed room "upgrade".!

Liked: Rates were reasonably cheap.

Disliked: Dirty. I understand that it is communal bathroom facilities etc but ours and the shower room were filthy. It is fair enough that it is cheap but that does not mean it should not be cleaned regularly.

Liked: Great atmosphere - very friendly staff and people. The park around the hostel is gorgeous. A lot of facilities (great kitchen, coffee machine, common room...). Clean and comfortable rooms

Disliked: Not in Killarney itself (the name can be misleading). The road to the nearest restaurant wasn't lighted at night - though this is by no means the hostel's fault.

Liked: The exterior of the hostel was definitely beautiful and its location 5 minutes outside of Killarney was great.

Disliked: The bathrooms had a serious mold problem and the whole building felt like a house that had been let sit without cleaning for too long. The staff were friendly enough in giving the keys and handing over bed linens but did nothing to explain the services available. On top of that, the staff was frequently away from the front desk and in the kitchen area. However, I could never find them anywhere in the kitchen area and it gave me the feeling that anyone could walk into this building without someone being aware. On top of that a large group of children were there the first night and they pretty much had the run of the place. It was extremely hard to sleep with the noise and with the general uncleanly feeling.

David Cannon

06 April 2010 David would recommend this property

Liked: Massive kitchen and meals area. Plenty of showers, and clean. Attracts an older clientele who are there for the walks around killarney and the ring of kerry - they're all nice enough, but means that the 'vibe' of the place is a little subdued. Also a fair way out of killarney itself, but a great base for the ring of kerry. Would go back

Disliked: David left no negative feedback.

Lance Taylor

30 March 2010 Lance would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was a little outside of town, but the amazing views more than made up for that! The hostel staff were all friendly and very very helpful. The large TV and reading room surpassed the expectations I had from the pictures on the website - particularly with the lovely comfy sofas and good dvd collection. We had expected bike hire to be available, but we found some in town for a cheap price - I would recommend biking rather than walking to Killarney, but if you're used to walking, then its a very pretty track. Finally, the hostel was lovely and clean- I walked round in my socks all weekend! The rooms were perfectly adequate and I would certainly recommend this hostel to both single travellers and families alike.

Disliked: Lance left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel was very nice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is the only drawback as the hostel is far from the city center. You definitely would not want to walk back and forth all the time.

Miguel Caro

08 July 2009 Miguel would recommend this property

Liked: It was practically in the middle of the wood so green a nature everywhere. Also, great space for parking and big kitchen. The bathrooms where clean and the staff friendly.The handle of the door was broken inside and it fell each time we wanted to open it. Also, a bat came under the door at night and got into our room! This was very funny; at least for me, my girlfriend was terrified!An average hostel in a beautiful location a bit far from the town.
