The hostel is in a great location and it is right above a bar - a great way to start your night out! The rooms are ridiculously secure but within the room there aren't any lockers. The staff are lovely and have good tips for things to do around Cork. The whole hostel is the cleanest I have ever seen so they definitely do a good job. You do have to renew your key card every day but it wasn't a problem. The tv room and kitchen is well equipped and a good place to meet like minded people!

We had an amazing time here - the atmosphere is brilliant and definitely what we were looking for. There was a lot of staff so slightly confusing who was a guest and who wasn't but it didn't matter :) the dorms are lovely and spacious and the bathrooms were ridiculously clean for so many people. Breakfast was good for being included and the staff showed us a really good time for nights out too!

Hostel Pisa Tower, Pisa, Italy
9.1
12th May 2013

This hostel was great to stay in :) couldn't have been cleaner or nearer everything in Pisa! The staff were extremely helpful and recommended great places to go eat and drink. It did feel more like a tiny B&B rather than a hostel as it didn't really have a kitchen and there were only 4 rooms but it had a homely feel which was lovely. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean although there were only 2 bathrooms but that was because it is an old building and no others can be built!

THE best party hostel I have ever been to!!! Didn't see the mornings for the whole week I stayed there as the bar and club/beer pong room were so good :) It is really good to meet new people and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying here if you like to party but not if you want somewhere quiet! The Rome-ing tours were brilliant - the best tours I have done which included seeing the Pope on Wednesdays. My bed was really comfortable and it was clean.

Seven Hostel, Sorrento, Italy

27th Apr 2013

Seven hostel is in a beautiful part of Sorrento - it does take a while to walk to the main town but you can catch a train really easily (only 1 stop) and it is great for getting to Pompeii too! The hostel is extremely clean and tidy and great for meeting new people :) there isn't a kitchen but there are plenty of places to eat near the hostel and the bar is extremely good and well priced! The bunk beds are the best I've had as the top is sooo high up so you can sit properly on the bottom bunk

The hostel is very easy to find and the reception couldn't be more helpful for things like deciding what to do/where to go/places to eat etc. The bathrooms are very clean although sometimes the toilets didn't flush! Having a bar is a great place to meet new people and the dorms are a good size too. The beds are extremely comfortable and the lockers are huge which was great for putting everything in! Would definitely come back here :)

Really good place to stay - it is great for meeting people and in such a good location for going out and seeing things. The kitchen is great although sometimes messy but overall everywhere was clean and the staff are really helpful. I would definitely (and have done) recommend this hostel :)

The security here is the worst bit about this hostel. All dorm rooms are constantly left open, you can walk into the hostel straight off the road and I didn't use my key once in my whole stay. However, the bar and atmosphere are brilliant, the free dinner is really good and I did have a good time here. There are lockers in the rooms and the beds/bathrooms are clean.

Brilliant place to stay... everyone is so friendly and the dorms were really clean and comfy! No problems at all apart from the kitchen where none of the utensils were ever put back so it was normally a hunt to find things. The sheets were clean, the staff couldn't have been more helpful although they could have done with more people on reception as it seemed like it was always busy and I had to queue several times but it didn't really matter.

Really enjoyed staying here! Was lovely and warm all the time when it was cold outside thanks to the fire and all the heaters in my room :) Very clean all around, especially the bathrooms which was good. Location was a little far out but it was a nice walk to the town so didn't matter too much. The staff were so friendly and couldn't have done more to help me :) They were very accommodating and went out of their way to help! Would definitely come again :)

The hostel was very clean and tidy and since it is new the layout is brilliant. I felt very safe here as you need keys to get into the hostel and your room. The only bad thing about the hostel is the lack of atmosphere. The majority of people there are on working visas so many people are working and have to get up early! Other than that I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to people who are working whilst travelling, not for people who are up for a party!

Great place to stay, really good atmosphere and full of interesting people! Only bad comment would have to be the breakfast where it wasn't help yourself and you only get 1 bowl of cereal and 2 slices of bread but other than that I would definitely recommend this hostel :) The rooms were really clean, so were the bathrooms and the beds were comfortable too. The area is great as it is close to the Grove and I felt safe walking out onto the streets around the hostel. Would come back :)
