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

I was here just for 1 night but it looked like a nice hostel. Room and bathroom were clean as well. More

Had to pay for parking which is €1 per hour and they don't even sell the parking permits at the hostel, and the shop they sent me to didn't even have any in stock. Very stressful and expensive. Breakfast was an extra €3 ontop of a rather expensive room. ALL of the doors creaked and More

The staff was friendly, hostel was central but in the dorms it felt like we're in prison - only one source of light, dark rooms - basically it just wasn't a cosy and nice place to stay. You wouldn't want to mention the bathrooms ... (Dirty!). 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

It was quite difficult to find the hostel since there are no "billboards" or even a name of the hostel anywhere on the building (well, there was a really small sign at the rear side of the building). However, our stay there was nice. What we found as a major problem was that there was not More

The staff at this hostel always seemed surprised when I went down to ask questions - it was as if they didn't expect to have people asking them things about the airport, or how to find the nearest grocery store. The kitchen here is a joke. There is no oven or stove - just a couple gas More
