Altogether very nice! :) Great location and friendly staff. The dorm was a bit tight but other than that no complaints whatsoever.

Love this place, beautiful and helpful staff. Clean and safe. Rooms are better spaced than most other hostels I've been too.

Great experience! Staff was spectacular and friendly, as were all the residents. It was quiet and I slept well when I went to bed. My only complaint was the breakfast due to the fact that it was only rice cereal and toast. Other than that, everything was great and I would definitely stay there again.

Standard kind of hostel, decent vibe, bar downstairs has live music every night which is nice, the building is very dated however and the rooms are tiny, they've definitely put too many beds per room, makes moving around/accessing stuff difficult.

This hostel is great - not too far from Cork's bus station or the city center, the staff is friendly and helpful, rooms have strong WiFi and are clean. Restrooms are clean and showers are hot. Bar downstairs isn't necessarily a bargain for backpackers, but there's a decent selection of whiskey and beer available. I'd totally stay here again.

The wifi was absolutely horrible while we were there and they were doing so sort of contruction in the Kitchen. The music from the bar below can get quite loud so bring earplugs or ask to be on the other side of the building. Other than that the hostel was pretty good in terms of atmosphere and cleanliness.

Cannot complaint, they are great, the place is nice and what else. I'd recommend to anyone, beds are comfy and the bar downstairs "top stuff", everything's worthwhile.

バスターミナルから近くて良かった。エレベーターがないので、大きい荷物は上階に運ぶのが大変。 Wifiの繋がりが部屋では弱かった。

Bit of a bad stay , doorman said I was drunk and wouldn,t let me in .....I don,t actually drink ! Wondered how he got the job . Apparently having your hands in your pockets (in November) is a sign of drunkeness . Someone was sleeping in the male dorm who shouldn,t have been .....the girlfreind of someone who was staying there long term . She was huffy when the light was put on at 9pm !!! I don,t approve of holiday trippers having to share the same dorms as homeless people .

Hostel really great, Staff always at your service. At night you hear the music from the bar so if you want to go to bed early not the best hostel but all the other qualities make up for it.
