Had a great stay at the hostel. Nice hot shower, comfy bed, spacious dorm room, nothing to really complain about! The staff was always helpful. Perfect location. An all ages hostel. Highly recommended!

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 travels...

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!!

Came here with a group of international students (40 people). It was relatively inexpensive. The room was average for a hostel - seemed quite clean.
The only downside is that we were having a bit of 'craic' in the shared living room in the evening and got kicked out around 10pm.
It was just a little bit awkward as we were told 'this was a place to relax, not meant for people to get pi$$ed up in' which was fair enough, but a little dramatic for me!
Nice for other residents though as it clearly isn't a party hostel!
Did not use the showers but one thing to note is that showers / bathrooms weren't separated (male/female), and there were only 3 toilets I could see - which as you can imagine is kind of hard with over 40 or so guests!
