Super Hostel !! Mit toller Atmosphäre. Lieg mitten in der Stadt, alles ist gut zu erreichen. Der alten Dielenboden is mit Teppisch ausgelegt und total kuschelig. Wirklich weiter zu empfehlen für einen Trip nach Kilkenny. Wir schauen auf jedenfall nochmal vorbei 🙂

Great friendly, clean hostel in Kilkenny! Fantastic location, good sized rooms, kitchen is huge and has everything you need. Really cool vibe about it and staff were friendly. I’ll stay here again!

Great hostel in lovely Kilkenny Really nice hostel in a lovely town. Plenty to see and worth spending the night. Very nice parlour. Kitchen very well equipped, even with ground coffee and coffee presses! Very clean and homey feeling.

Stay here! Staff went over and above to accommodate our bookings (we had a few different parties join us at different times) and they were incredibly helpful. Was smack back in the middle of the city too!

Friendly, helpful and well informed staff. We enjoyed the lovely building. Wonderful location!

He passat tres nits en aquest hostel i molt bé. Els llits són molt còmodes i l’habitació neta. La cuina és amplia i disposa d’estris. La situació del host és cèntrica, hi ha varios pubs aprop on toquen música en directe.

Hostel right in the middle of Kilkenny. Great bargain if you are traveling alone.This is a hostel, not a hotel. This was one of the few times I tried a hostel while traveling alone. I had great conversations with fellow guests, there were some Spaniards staying there the same night. There is a shared kitchen and bath, but it was clean and tidy. Helpful staff. I would stay there again. Ask about parking, there is a parking lot nearby and it’s not expensive.

I was so impressed by this hostel as it was fabulously located at the quiet end of the high st and opposite some of the more authentic pubs in town. My room was ready even though I arrived at 10am and staff were really friendly. Room was basic but comfortable and had chest of drawers and towels provided. Only drawback was wifi only really worked on ground floor but as they’ve fostered such a friendly, communal environment really didn’t want to hole myself up in room on internet anyway!

Stayed here recently with some friends! There was 8 of us in total. We could nit have asked for anymore while staying in Kilkenny Tourist Hostel. We were able to book out an 8-bed dorm that consisted of 4 bunk-beds. The room was very spacious and we weren’t cramped at all. All staff members were really helpful and friendly. Had all amenities that you could need. Perfect location at the end of the high street. Shared toilets and showers that were kept very clean. Lovely spot all over and well worth the money!!

Lovely hostel in an old building. It was interesting wondering around this building trying to imagine what a house it must have been, once upon a time! They have turned it into a hostel but you can still feel the character of the old house.

The place was really clean, the kitchen nice and bright, staff very friendly and helpful.

I was surprised to find such a cozy common room, full of suggestion for activities for all tastes and ages.

It was really lucky to call them (even if it was late evening) in my effort to find a room after I got stuck in Kilkenny without planning it on a Saturday night. The guys were very accommodating and easy to deal with.

Totally recommend this hostel 🙂

When we arrived, we were happy to see that we were right in town and able to walk everywhere! We had such a lovely time in beautiful Kilkenny. The staff at the hostel was very polite and we expected on a Friday night that everyone would be loud and we probably would have trouble sleeping but everyone was just as quiet as any hotel. There was a kitchen, a comfortable sitting room and the restrooms were clean. We had a great time and figured out free parking in the back.

Nosotras pasamos allí una gran noche. El hostel se encuentra muy bien ubicado, muy cerca de todo, pero lo suficientemente lejos como para que no te moleste durante la noche. Nosotras estuvimos en una habitación de 8 y las camas eran cómodas y las sábanas estaban bastante limpias. Además tenías la posibilidad de coger más sábanas y mantas de un armario que había en el pasillo. La cocina era lo suficientemente grande. Lo mejor sin duda fue el personal del hotel con el que pasamos un gran noche conversando sobre todo. Sin duda repetiría.

L’hôtel est bien situé, à proximité d’un parking à la journée, très bon marché. L’établissement est chaleureux, et très propre. Il aspire au calme. Le petit déjeuner n’est pas compris, mais il y a de quoi se préparer une collation, café et thé disponibles gratuitement. Le salon est reposant et dispose d’une cheminée. Le staff est sympa et attentionné. Très bon rapport qualité prix.

Perfectly located, classic hostel

Real place with Irish feeling.
I like the “real” feeling of the house, it is like you visiting your Irish relatives rather than staying in the hostel. The chimney room is really cozy and relaxing, the location is great, there is everything so close and the parking is almost in the backyard. Special thanks to the personnel, there we really friendly and happy to help. My somehow doubled booking was fixed immediately even if it was technically too late to change. I also appreciated a “single” room and a comfy bed. Definitely recommended and I’ll stay again.

Love Kilkenny

Kilkenny is my favorite town in Ireland to visit and this was my second time staying at the Kilkenny Tourist Hostel. Its a perfect little place to stay for a night. The hostel is an old Victorian home, so that adds charm. Staff is really nice and the location is PERFECT. Very close to everything in Kilkenny. Cash only and has parking near by.
