  General Description Neptune's Town Hostel is a large but peaceful accommodation on Bishop's Lane just off of New Street. Location This hostel is tucked away from the Main Street but is close to the National Park and like everything in the small town of Killarney, is close to every place of interest. I would recommend Murphy's on Main Street for food and a drink. also, if you decide to go to Muckross House, bike there as it is 10k to the actual house. The directions that the hostel provides are not really directions. Look it up on Google Maps before you come. It is only a 7-10 minute walk to the hostel from the bus/train station. Rooms/Bathrooms The rooms are hotel like because you are given key cards to enter your room. It is really nice having bathrooms in the bedroom. The bathrooms are a bit tight but manageable. Also, there is no Wifi in the rooms at all. The free Wifi and Internet are only in lobby not in the rooms. Common Areas The hostel has a large eating area and self serve kitchen. The kitchen provides tons of dinnerware and silverware, about six oven burners, and lots of pots and pans. The smaller reception area and common room which holds the one computer lack space and comfort but serve their purpose. Most of the people staying in the hostel only stay for one night or only use it at night so the smallness isn't a problem. There is also a TV and book room that is not used very much but looks comfortable enough. Summary This hostel should be treated more like a hotel: for sleeping and eating. Go out to the restaurants and pubs to meet people and to do your planning. The staff are very friendly and full of information. Use them! Overall, this stay was very enjoyable.
excellent place to stay, it is in a great location, staff were lovely, bathrooms were always clean! the only problem was people banging the doors when goin into their room but other than that, it was an excellent experience!!!

Noisy. No supervision.
Paid up front for two nights. Only stayed one. Hardly any sleep first night for noise in corridor. People shouting and banging doors until 4am. Started again at 7am. Could hear people talking in next room. Managed to get my money back for second night and ran away. Will never go back again.
Tidy, nice premises. Not for peace-lovers, all night party going on.
Rooms were tidy and nice but chilly in November, good prices. Nice place for party-loving youngsters (or wannabe-youngsters). Music choice was horrible and it was playing loud until late night. Not for sober peace-lovers though central location and low prices compensate a bit. Night staff were a bit arrogant.
Dirty, rude, noisy
Was here for one night, and ran away, It's quite expensive, but does not offer value for money. It's too large, so not cosy. It's noisy, and the rooms are incredibly filthy, the toilet hadnt been cleaned for ages, the only toilet in Ireland I had to clean in a hostel before I dared sitting on it. Shower was falling apart. Staff were very rude.
Good hostel at convenient location
Neptunes is a comfortable place for a short stay. The staff were pretty friendly and helpful. The twin rooms had good security though they were pretty noisy during the night. The hostel could publish more prominently that it organizes day-tours of Ring of Kerry and Dingle.

  Man, I love this place. The staff are lovely and it's really nice in general. It was also the first hostel I stayed in and I'll definitely be back!!! If you're coming to Killarney, then stay here.

  This is probably the best hostel in Killarney. I stayed in a three-person private room. The room was very small and cramped, but the bathroom more than made up for it. The shower was great, as the water pressure and temperature were perfect. It didn't really matter much that the room was small because you will only be there to sleep anyway. This hostel has a friendly and helpful staff. There is one computer in the lounge where you can access the Internet, but you have to wait your turn. I don't think there is a curfew, since I was hanging around the lobby at 4 a.m. and bought Pringles from the desk guy to satisfy my drunken munchies. This hostel's location in right in the center of the town so it is a very short walk to the grand hotel, which is the hot spot of the Killarney's nightlife at the moment. They have traditional music until 11 p.m. then they bring in a live band and open up the back room, which has a nice big dance floor. Stay at Neptune's. Peace out.
