Tracy was very kind with us however, we found that the bathroom needed to be refurbished. Besides, the door lock was not very secure and although the key worked well, there was a hole. The room was clean and the WIFI worked perfectly. Near the city center only 15 min walk. More

It's a little tricky to find this place since they don't give an address. If you're coming in from the road behind looking for parking, look for the museum with the purple sculture dome thing. Good wifi, breakfast for a reasonable price, lots of student types, cheaper than other Cork More

Great hostel, very clean, would recommend others stay there! Only downsides is that there isn't a very strong backpacker community feel to the place, and you get a lot of road noise through the window, if that's something that would bother you. More

Bru bar was an excellent walking distance to the city center, and was very easy to find. The bathrooms were kind of gross, but I guess that's what you get when you share two with 8 people. Very cramped in the room-there is only room for the beds and a small walking area to the side (think More

The beds are really good for being a hostel. You also get breakfast, not that common, even if its poor. More
