John's Hostel was very nice and clean. Good idea with the self-doing breakfast. His knowhow and ideas for family tour where very helpful and liked from our children. We would again visit his hostel if we travel around killarny. Thank you very much John!

I loved my stay at John's!!! He is fantastic host, the suggestions he gave to see an do turned out to be the highlights of our trip. The house was always clean and tidy, beds comfortable. The chicken and fresh eggs was a true treat!!!!! We only felt sad for the goat that is lonely non stop, however, I heard next week she is getting a buddy:) Thank you John and your father for hospitality I will definitely recommend your place in future !
