Kilkenny Tourist Hostel
Reviewed 5 July 2017

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.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled as a couple

Perfect home base for my one night in Kilkenny. It was clean, though dated, but the place had charm because it was a very old house. Staff were really nice, and the whole place had a friendly atmosphere. Smack dab in the middle of all of the things you'd want to see during your visit. Quiet at night (other than a snoring person in my room but the hostel can't help that LOL). I'd stay again.

Note that they don't take credit card, so bring cash (or there is an ATM nearby)

My biggest complaint is the lack of breakfast, but there was tea and coffee.

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...
