The room wasn't that bad, but the service was terrible. During check-in the woman was very rude and kept rushing the group I was traveling in to write our names down and was rude when we were taking a little longer than she wanted. I tried using the wifi & it said incorrect password. I went to reception to ask...

Myself and three friends stayed in Paddy's Palace Easter Sunday night as we were having a night out in Killarney!

The problem with this hostel is terrible management. The actual building is okay and the bedrooms are not the worst I've been in- but the staff at this hostel make it an unbearable place to stay. The woman at the desk is in the wrong profession- she was rude to us the whole time. They didn't have enough keys for...

We were pleasantly surprised by this hostel. Everything was clean and nice to use, the staff was friendly and helpful in any situation. The breakfast was modest but there was enough for everybody and you could have as much as you liked. A great value of money, would definitely come back!

This hostel was awful. From the minute we arrived, the girl at reception was very unaccommodating. The reception area was in the middle of the kitchen so when she was trying to sort out payment, we felt stupid as there was people all around listening as we tried to explain that we were paying separately and she could not understand...

As soon as we arrived to the hostel, we got a very negative feel from the woman at reception. She only gave us short answers and made everything awkward.

Very central and at a super price we really liked this hostel. It is clean and comfy and with only 40 beds it is also easy to meet people. All rooms are ensuite and a decent breakfast is provided to start the day. Overall a top shop..!!

I booked two wonderful Bavarian boys into Paddy Place in Killarney. They were to arrive before 2 pm which they did to check in only to be told they had to go to Annascaul which was 17kms away . They did not have a car. Very disapponted with this. It should not happen. Paddys place is in Killarney not Annscaul....
