Staff is extremely warm and friendly and helpful. Rooms were very cozy and clean with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms.

The atmosphere and familiarity are extra ordinary and the volunteers made everybody staying there have a great time! Right after four nights I am even sad to leave, not a lot of hostels make you really feel like home.

  Olivia W... 

The hostel had a great, homely atmosphere, with a large kitchen that made it straightforward to meet other visitors, and was close to the high street, i. e. pubs, so I spent an evening with other travellers. The employees (Lucy and Fergus) were really warm and friendly and personal. It takes 15-20 mins to walk to the train station. Facilities were good, with locked showers, and Wireless IN ROOMS. There was a preference to pay in cash, though by card was possible. They also provide free printing.

Once you found the hostel (quite far from the train/bus station) it was close to all of the tourist attractions in Kilkenny.
