    Rooms are clean and spacious, and you are a ten minute walk from St Patrick's street. Great value for money, and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The only downside of those place is the bells from the church next door, if you're a light sleeper.

    Nice place to stay! Beds were comfy, linens clean, bathrooms pretty good. I do wish the dorm rooms had lockers, especially since the front door to the hostel was often left open and the dorm doors didn't always shut all the way. Also wish there were outlets above the beds, rather than next to them on the floor as I like to charge my phone while sleeping. Super friendly folks at the front desk. Would definitely stay here again!

    I come here for the afforbale price . Don't expect 5 star ! The cost matches the Facilities & Rooms. This place is for people who are not overly fussy. The staff are helpful. In a good location with much history. You get what you pay for and that is what I like about this place. Cork is a nice place to visit. laid back. everything in walk distance.

    Good price. Big rooms with a banging door meant for a sleepless night. Also the 12-bed has partitions separating the space into 'rooms' of 4 beds, which sounds nice, but in our case resulted in people chatting within their little group and keeping others awake
