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 More

Great stay at a nice hostel. Very good atmosphere especially if you're up for a bit of 'craic' etc. The bar is quite nice and always plenty of interesting people to meet even for the solo traveler. Recommended! More

There aren't that many options in Cork, so you kind of have to make due. Everything felt like it was covered in a layer of filth, the kitchen was way too crowded to use, regardless of the time of day. There was absolutely no room in the fridges at all. The beds in the room are extremely More

Great Hostel with a great reception area for all your little questions. Facilities were clean and tidy and definitely not as old and run down as others we stay in in Ireland. I would definitely recommend this Hostel - however it would be a 15-20min walk to the city, we had a car so this More

This may not be the most organised of hostels but it had a nice atmosphere. And there was no hassle leaving luggage and collecting it later. The kitchen was good. Also, a online PC was available to hostellers. I will stay here again on my next visit to Cork. More

There's no locker facilities, tv room is closed at certain hours. Location is decent. Shower and toilet is okay, kitchen is good but would prefer if we can stay there after 10pm as well. Maybe until 12? Should add more plugs source in the room and fix the shaken bed More

The location of the hostel does not let you see the best side of cork, we judged the city very poorly at first due to the location. There seemed to be very little around it with the closest pub being 10 minute walk away which meant a late night walk through a not great part of town. The More
