Liked: The kitchen was really clean and very well equipped. The showers were real showers, not push button ones! Very close to everything.

Disliked: Only bad comment I could give is the beds were very firm, but still sleep-able.

Liked: A Backpackers dream -a taste of real Ireland set in the heart of vibrant Kilkenny. Basic but warm and welcoming with friendly staff on hand to give helpful and practical advice about transport, places to see, shop, eat and drink , Excellent kitchen and cooking equipment with dining room to share a meal, beer and a laugh with fellow travelers from far and wide.

Disliked: The dorm experience is not for everyone, however upgrades to private are possible.

Liked: It's a very well organized hostel, very spatious and clean, nice atmosphere in.

Disliked: The only little remark that I could do, is about the toilet paper box. There's no normal roll, but just the machine which provides the paper piece by piece, and so it takes a lot of time to finish to clean and brush the own back.

Liked: The location is good and the saturday reception friendly. Obvious past but not current attempts were made to make the environment inside really great epecially dining room

Disliked: Kitchen is absolutely dreadful, taps dont close its grubby and the fridges are a disaster area, cookers are crap, pans are rubbish and all stuff is badly stored. Gives the impression that nobody really gives a shit. Bogs upstairs that fall over when you sit on. This stuff is totally unneccesary, I could fix all this with one weekends takings, makes you feel ripped off!
