Tracey was more than helpful and welcoming! A great place with fantastic connections to Train and Bus Stations as well as the Town Center.

We enjoyed our stay at this hostel. When I read reviews about this hostel I thought it will be too far from the city center but it isn't at all, it is only a short walk that in a nice day can be quite enjoyable. Trayce was very friendly and helpful since the very first moment we walked in. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, providing good advices of places to go and even helping us figure out the bus schedule. Affordable, clean, safe and great host! Highly recommended!

I had so much fun talking to Tracy! A great hostel, good location, and a great place if you want to walk Cork or be close to the train.

Nice staff and good location but tiny hostel (just TWO toilets/bathroom in all the hostel) and not a party hostel at all. Bedroom ok, beds are comfy.

It's cheap, clean, lovely atmosphere in common space and staff is really nice. No worries in bathroom, i had hot water.

Nice little hostel, the manager was lovely and full of useful ideas of what to do in Cork. Just note that if you don't arrive at the check in times, you literally can't go inside to wait.

I had such a WONDERFUL stay at this hostel. Traci really goes out of her way to make you feel at home and she even helped me plan a couple of day trips. I felt very much at home in this hostel. She even helped me round up a group of people to go experience an Irish pub one night!

Tracey was extremely welcoming when I arrived and showed me around. I did have to wait a bit to be able to check in, but I was aware of it as it's clearly labeled on the website. Staff were able to help me out with any questions I had. The place felt more like a home than a hostel and it's what I liked about it. A short walk into town (approx 15 mins). They were fixing the showers when I was there, but it barely took any time Tracey was apologetic about the extremely MINOR inconvenience. Thanks!

Great place to stay and Tracy is a gem! Looked after us the whole time and seems to take on guests as if they're family. Kitchen is a little small and the shower heads don't produce a lot of water but they are very small problems in a truly great hostel. Would stay there every time I go to Cork.

The main room is confortable and the kitchen secure. Just one negative thing : there is no scale to help to go on the upper beds.
