“Very friendly hostel”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

I would definitely recommend Tom's hostel, if you're ever considering staying in Waterford!
The hostel is located 2 km from the village of Mooncoin, about 10 km from Waterford. Tom is very good to offer a ride to the city otherwise there's a bus passing near by.
Tom, his family and their pets are very hospitable and do their very best to make you feel at home. Tom will answer all your questions and more about Ireland, sharing experience from his tour guiding days.
There's a pub close by and shops down the road in Mooncoin.

We found Toms hostel online before we started our trip round Ireland, booking the room couldnt have been easier with quick efficient replies via email. It wasnt the easiest to find but locals were very helpful! Theres available parking & a comfy communal area, as previous mentioned a cooker would be great & would change my rating to excellent ! Tom was amazingly welcoming & spent a lot of time with us advising us on where to go, things to do, people to see, basically planned our whole trip & definitely saving us money with recommendations! The local pub is also very welcoming, even gave us some free crisps! Toms hostel really gave us a some comfort and a positive outlook for what was to come, we contacted him during our trip for more advice which he promptly & happily replied, we even considered dropping by on our way home just to say hi! Thank you Tom :)

Small place near Waterford City. Rural location, very quite. Owner is very friendly and welcoming. It's all quite new, bright and very clean. Great value, they even washed our dishes. There is no cooker, but a microwave, kettle and fridge are provided in the common room. Common room has comfortable sofas & TV. Parking facility on the property was fine. Hostel is not so well signposted, but fairly easy to find with route descriptions on the website.
