Interaction with Guests
Although I do not live at the property, I will be always available to my guests during their stay to ensure an enjoyable stay.
It is a lovely quiet neighbourhood but only a five minute walk to the centre of Kilkenny.
Buses stop just down the street and the train station is a 20 minute walk.
Quietness after 11pm. You are welcome to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself. No smoking in the house. No eating in the bedrooms. No extra guests allowed unless previously agreed with owner.
It's not really a hostel because it's an empty house, no reception but Mark came and gave us the key. Mark is a nice person, he is willing to answer our questions. The room is fine, but the rest spaces like kitchen or the laundry room, are not clean.
The space isn't a hostel. There is no staff, no lobby, no extra amenities. It's actually an empty family home with bunk beds thrown into the rooms. We were the only people in the house for the night and it was uncomfortable being in the big house alone by ourselves. Caroline was very nice and helpful when letting us into the house, but it was difficult to coordinate when the wrong address was provided in the listing.
I would have expected that you would enjoy having a room or house all to yourselves without the disturbance of other guests. Unfortunately we can't arrange for the place to be full every night - I wish!! Also we provide FREE towels and toiletries which you don't get as a rule in a hostel
Caroline was very friendly and helpful. She gave me all information which I needed and a warm welcome. The house is nice and there is a big kitchen.
It is quite close to the city. it is only about a 10-15minute walk to the castle from the BnB. Our host stopped by to welcome us, but we weren't sure about anything because she left to go to assist a different guest at another house. It was a quite little place that we didn't feel we had to rush about in the morning, which was really nice.
I couldn't have asked for a better host in Caroline. Her accommodation was better than I had imagined. When I arrived, she treated me to a cup of coffee near the bus stop and personally drove me to her place afterward, sharing great information about the city and making sure I had everything I needed for my stay. She carried a warm demeanor and made me feel right at home!
