    I can't say much about the stay itself - I booked a room and I was only informed afterwards that the check-in time has passed already. I called the hostel to see if it would still be possible to check in later (as the time was not shown before booking)/amend the reservation but the call was not answered and I couldn't leave a message as the mailbox was full. They refused to cancel it, although I could not see the check-in time prior to booking and I could not check in. That's €18 down the drain.

    Staff should wear name badges, uniforms even. A mobile number written on a closed office door is not sufficient for communication when needed. Staff member had lack of knowledge of local amenities. Seems to have people there that are quite glum. Place was clean modern but kitchen had two electric hob cookers. Both had broken knobs so need to be fixed or replaced. Six bed dorm I stayed in was very cramped. too small for six plus no floor space for luggage. No shelves no lockers. Not homely.

    Stayed here as working in the area. Hostel was full of homeless and junkies. Had to wait an hr in reception on arrival and receptionist was unable to provide me with change on payment. No social distancing in place, 3 occupied bunk beds in small airless room. DO NOT STAY HERE

    This was awful. There were many homeless folk living in my room who would come back late and be drunk. The owner came into my room at 3Am “to shower” shortly after another lady came in to use the bathroom. There was smoking in the hostel and couples yelling and fighting while drunk late at night. I was scared to leave my bags there so I took them with me for the day. I would not advise anyone to stay.

    Terrible experience arrived early evening after a days sight seeing in Cork to be told they made a mistake and we were homeless for night 400 odd miles from home in Belfast . Disgraceful treatment - no sympathy and cold. I wouldn’t advise this joke of hostel to anyone. We had to cut out holiday short and drive late into night home to Belfast - absolutely disgusted by whole experience .

    I made a reservation here only to receive an email 4 hours before I was to check in saying there had been a mistake and there was no room for me, leaving me with nowhere to stay. Then they proceeded to still charge me for the stay and when I tried to contact them to ask for my money back I was completely ignored. I am still waiting for a response and a refund.
