Or bliss out with a lazy movie night curled up in a beanbag in our home cinema – just grab some friends and snacks and pick a film from our library. For some well-deserved R&R after a busy night out experiencing the Irish drinking scene, let the dry heat of our sauna relax you – it might even help if you had too much Guinness too!

    Really nice, clean, and located near a lot of things to do in Cork and near transit to get out of the city as well. One thing to keep in mind if you have mobility issues is that the hostel is on the top of a hill with a steep incline

    The hostel is conveniently located close to the train station and the city center, everything is closeby. The staff was friendly and the rooms were nice, everything was clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were enough showers so that you never had to wait. It was located in a more quiet part of the city. Sadly no lockers were present in the room, though lockers could be rented in a different space. When checking in you got a flyer getting you 10% off at multiple restaurants / cafes.

    Everything was perfect, except that there was one night the boiler was broken and anyone had their showers without any hot water. I got a really bad cold after that and many of the guests were sick.

    Nice spot! It's got a lot of beds so it's really busy! My only gripe is the long climb from the bottom of the hill! Other than that a great spot!

    We recently stayed in the 14 person room. The beds weren't very comfy but adequate, the shower was decent, the main problem was the fact they have two skylights with no blinds so the sun wakes you up at 6:30 - other than that the staff were friendly and it's a short walk to anywhere in Cork.

    Rooms are tight. Bathrooms need a good scrub. I poured water down the trap to get rid of sewer gas smell. Staff great!

    My overall stay was great. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very small, but otherwise it was a very good place to stay in Cork.

    I had an issue with my food being taken from the cupboard in the kitchen, i informed reception and they just said it wasn't their responsibility, they told me it wouldn't have been a member of staff who removed it. Therefore it was obviously 'stolen' by another guest, they said 'what do you want us to do, check the CCTV? I said, yes if it's been stolen, but their response was we are very busy and we don't have time! In the end they did offer me a complimentary hostel breakfast as conciliation!
