Wonderful stay owner Stephan lovely man very friendly. Myself and my husband were here for one night and it was perfect shower excellent we had a great night sleep prime location for everything when in Tralee reasonable price for hostel it was so clean. No parking on site but my husband located an underground overnight car park with security for 4 Euro 40 metres from the hostel perfect. Directions for parking are as follows out of front door of hostel take a right then take first right up the lane and the parking is on the left. Fantastic stay thanks Stephan.

Hostel itself was fine enough, and the staff were absolutely outstanding. But the owners are the worst people I have actually ever met in my life. If you actually have to deal with them outside of tourist advice you'll find them very greedy, heartless folks. I cannot believe the way they treated some of their guests. I've been in hospitality my entire life, and have worked at hostels all over Ireland, and have to admit they are the most un-irish people I've personally come across in that beautiful, otherwise friendly country. Left a terrible taste in my mouth that hopefully will fade now. I would support other businesses in town that treat their staff and guests with kindness.

I enjoyed my stay in Castle Hostel, nice staff, clean facilities and the bed was very comfortable which for me is a bonus. I stayed in a dorm room and it was nice. Clean beds, linen and a towel even supplied by your bed for a shower.. Nice touch. If I was to give a small constructive point, breakfast should run from 7.30 or earlier than 8am anyway.

This is a basic ensuite double room hostel. Stephen ( the owner ) is welcoming and helpful. The room is neat and clean and the place has all necessary fixtures. The price is good. It is well located and easy to access. The nearby laundromat and Tesco were useful. Apart from some thoughtless idiot talking loudly on his phone at 11.30 pm ( which can happen anywhere) ... it was exactly as advertised and expected. Recommended.

I stayed here for a night in August in a private double with bathroom. The room was clean, however it was dated, had a creaky bed and quite expensive for what I got. As hostels go, this is a nice one, communal areas were spotless, great kitchen facilities including dishwasher and unlimited tea and coffee and a basic breakfast included in price. There is super fast WiFi too.
