    The location was superb and ultra practical!

    The general cleanliness was very poor , dirty carpets and a lingering smell of smoke was off putting! It is a shame that this facility hasn't been treated with some TLC as it could be a superb hostel!

    Cheap place... The restaurant was fine !!!

    It was dusty and dirty. We booked for twin room and they did't care, at least we were in a dorm, with very bad matress. The shower have cold or fresh water, not warm at all...

    The only positive thing I can find to say about this hostel is that the location is central & easily accessible. Parking is also easily available in the evening.

    To begin with we were accused of arriving a day late despite presenting with proof of booking showing otherwise. We were then told despite booking three nights they could only accomodate two nights due to the arrival of a stag party. Later that evening we found a used condom in our room followed by sweet wrappers under the bed covers. Finally the bathroom door didn't close at all and the water from the shower ran out the door into the room. I found this hostel to be very unsatisfactory and far from value for money.

    good location in center of a nice town pity about the night club opposite and the noise in the early morning - good breakfast - staff quite friendly

    room smelt damp - both double beds in the room were broken in the middle and sagged to one side making one roll off the edge - toilet hadn't been cleaned since the last occupants and there was no toilet paper in the room's toilet or the bar/restaurant toilet(the next morning. Will pay the extra few euro to stay in a proper B&B or hotel, next time.

    The location is excellent, staff very friendly and it's very good value! Four could have fit in our room and we had a dog too with no problems. Breakfast was excellent in the pub downstairs.

    The shower could do with updating..

    Central location in Town is good. On street car parking or park at rear of build *(front of Paragan Bar) is convient. Music in Bar on Thursday's and w/end. Great to be able to have a late nightcap after a long drive.

    Little hard to figure out connection with Paragon Bar until you see the signs inside the Hostel.

    Paid for bed and breakfast at the bar on the night before to discover the following morning that the bar, where breakfast was to be served, was taken apart overnight to be renovated - would have thought this one would have twigged with the staff! Did get a refund.

    Excellent location. Breakfast was good.

    There was no television or toiletries, as advertised. The only type of breakfast available was cooked, i.e. no fruit, cereal, etc.
