    Very convenient as you can rent a towel and buy some toiletries in case. You have to pay for the breakfast and the breakfast room is small. Pretty big hostel...

    After recent holidays I decided to go for cheap and cheerful place. Excellent location, cheap, good facilities and clean. I just missed something in the decoration that brings atmosphere to the place. I think in my previous visit was a fire in the breakfast room. More light in the kitchen and sitting room would make a big difference.It is closed to stay from 11.00AM-3.00 PM . I would return doing the same, sleep in and go to a nice hotel/coffee shop to chill out and coffee.

    I first stayed in Sheila's in 1990. Amazing that it is still there, in the same location, with great views of the city. It is a busy and bustling place. I am comfortable there.

    Great little hostel. Only thing was the bathroom was dirty the whole time we were there, might just be becasue the guest to bathroom ration was really bad, there was a lot of us sharing one bathroom. The staff was great, and during the day you have to pay for parking everywhere in Cork, just be warned.

    It was fine. Gave me a place to sleep and eat. Not an Amazing atmosphere or anything but no real complaints really. Be aware there are quite a few extra fees that would normally be included!

    The place did had little facilities for the large guest capacity, so it felt quite crammed. The lockers were only on the bottom floor, and it was annoying to go all the way down from 3rd floor each time. Also gender separated shower are only on the bottom floor.

    there are a lot of people that reside long term which changes the dynamic of the place. i stayed in a 14 bed mixed dorm with the bunk beds set up predominantly one next to another which meant no matter what side you slept on you were looking at someone sleeping. there was also always a weird smell in the dorm and the bathroom but it could be having a lot of people staying in one room
