It's a shame that this hostel is closing shop because I had a great time there


Tracy was very kind with us however, we found that the bathroom needed to be refurbished. Besides, the door lock was not very secure and although the key worked well, there was a hole. The room was clean and the WIFI worked perfectly. Near the city center only 15 min walk.


Very friendly staff. Good cleanliness and a completely refurbished room.


Room was very quiet and tidy. Wifi worked well in the room which was a bonus. Hostel was a bit quiet. Location wasn't the best. It wasn't in city centre but it was a very walkable distance away.


Tracy the owner was great - very friendly and helpful. We left our bags with her when we arrived and she put them into our rooms. She also had no problem with us arriving before the advertised check in time, and was kind enough to provide us with a light breakfast in the morning. The bedroom was very clean and it was comfortable. ovide us with a light breakfast in the morning. The bedroom was very clean and

Nice clean rooms, friendly atmosphere. Good informations from the staff about things to do, places to stay/eat/drink and happenings in Cork.


Great stay. Owner is wonderfull and very helpfull. Thank you Tracy


Very nice place to stay,Tracey was very helpful😃


Very quiet and reasonable priced hostel in Cork, about 8 min away from main city centre by foot. Great and very knowledgeable hosts. If you have a lot of electrical devices, think about bringing your own extension chord with a couple of extra electrical plugs.


Owner Tracy is great. Very helpful, ideal location to bus and train station. Stayed in twin room, had a sink in which was great. Would recommend!
