    Big lounge and dinning area. Good kitchen. Very comfy mattress. Super clean rooms. And fast WiFi. Overall a good stay, but hardly memorable. Good for a one night stopover.

    The shower was very bad, worse I've had in Ireland so far. And similar to other reviewers, the noise from the hallway and other rooms was bad, especially at 3 and 4am.

    Booked a family room for my boyfriend and I, young staff member checked us in around 8pm on Saturday evening, really lovely friendly, room was clean, towels provided in the room, bed was comfortable.

    Unfortunately, on sunday morning at check out - which is at 10am and very early checkout time, woman went around knocking on doors opening rooms telling people it was half an hour until check out. never experienced this before, thankfully we were dressed and on the way out as she approached our door. the woman on reception at check out was dealing with a previous guest mentioning that a woman who was banned got into the hostel the night before and kept other guests awake. Receptionist on check out wasn't pleasant to us at all. When our friends went to hand back there key, from another room, they were accused of bringing 15 (???) people back to their room that night and told they had to pay for other guests inconvenience. they had no complaints made to them at night, and had been in reception with the night staff chatting to them. Receptionist was rude and told our friends they were banned if they didn't pay. If our friends had felt they were being loud or had warnings made to them at night they would have paid. For this reason, purely on a staff point of view i would not recommend this hostel. I've worked in the hospitality industry and never seen guests treated in this way, even in other hostels.

    The staff checked us in early and were helpful.

    The kitchen was a little dirty and the dishes were dirty. I had to wash them before cooking dinner.

    Location is fine,you are not at downtown but parking is free and Killarney center is about 20 min walk or 5 min by car.

    I have been in many hostels, this was by far one of the worse. The first member of the staff that check us in was not very communicative, we went to the room and on our way for dinner I had to ask for wifi code and where was the breakfast taking place. The carpet in the room and at the corridor looked very unclean, I don't think they have hovered them recently. There were also two cobwebs in the toilet. The pricing did not reflect the condition of the hostel.
