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!

Room Tip: I'd go for top floor as kitchen and common room on ground floor is hub for socialising and sound...

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!!
