The staff was brilliant. They provide all the answers the questions me and my friend asked. Even when there was a bus strike, we never missed a day outing. There is always something to do, what ever the situation, come rain or shine. I loved it. It's a great place to visit.

Lockers are in a separate room on the first floor and cost 1 euro a day plus a key deposit (slightly inconvenient), breakfast is not free, location isn't far at all from pubs, etc. staff were all very helpful, I'd recommend paying for the en suite option as the common bathrooms were not clean

I thought the staff were all very friendly and they made my friend and I very welcome! The accomodation was good and the staff always had a smile on their face and were very helpful on giving advice on different aspects of visiting Cork. I would definitely stay at Sheila's hostel again.

It was all good, except for the noise. Walls are very thin you can hear everything in the rooms around, above and people singing outside were not helping either. Basically it's not for light sleepers. But otherwise a good place to stay, close to city centre. Staff was very nice!!

Very small room for four but comfortable beds. Only two power points available. Squeaky doors and floors but it is a older building. Bathrooms were ok - three available on one floor and more on others. Kitchen industrial size. Car parking was free due to public holiday. Short walk to town.

Its a nuisance that the toilets and shower blocks are located so far from the dporms

Great Night Stay! Enjoyed the staff and the people!

We had a basement internal room, with no ventilation in the bathroom and the shower drainage was poor which lead a very unpleasant smell to the room. The room was under the stairs and next to the kitchen which meant late night and early morning noise.

Paddy who works on the reception desk was very friendly and informative. He recomended a motorcycle eeoute for us, which we followed. This helped make our stay in Ireland one of the best trips i have had for a while. Thank you Paddy :o)

Good crowd. alot of students if you dont mind cooking! Very central, mccurtain street is very popular with the younger crowd, and there are lots of cheap good places to eat. Highly recommended!

The hostel was very close to the centre of Cork and very easy to find from the Parnell Place Bus station. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were of average cleanliness. The staff were knowledgeable and available 24/7.

Way too big of a place- but warm not hot water, nice big kitchen for meeting people, a hidden terrace but just too large with too many people in a maze of a hostel that shuts down quite early

No one bothered to stop the drunken crowd from shouting for hours in the lobby - it is public are an some consideration for others should be forced onto them... But no, it didnt happen. Apart from that not a bad place, just bit too far from the city center.
