    Solo female traveler. A very safe and atmospheric hostel. I felt at home as soon as I dropped my bags! The atmosphere is beautiful. We had a fire and a few drinks with the owner on the first night. I was shown where to pick some chocolate mint leaves from the garden to make fresh tea!! It’s definitely one of the warmest, homely hostels I’ve stayed in.

    This hostel is in a beautiful location. I felt very welcome, the staff were friendly and chatty. The shower was good and the kitchen, dining room and lounge area were perfectly good. However, my room was pretty cold and damp, there were snails inside the room. I put on the radiators which worked well but did not get rid of the dampness. I think the whole building needs updating and the bedding had seen better days. Saying that there was a good atmosphrere and it was cheap.

    I used this as a Base Camp to visit Cobh's waterfront, Baltimore Beacon & at the Jameson's Distillery in Midleton. Staff was very knowledgable about the area. Helped me find a Stone Circle (Drombeg) that was close by and visit a SaltWater Lake near Baltimore. Farm style table for getting together after a day of site seeing. I had a private room that was very quiet and showers with plenty of hot water. I will definitely come back when I can do the kayaking adventures they have.
