    Large building with big kitchen and lots of seating. Nice staff. Room was nice with comfy beds and good pillows. We had an ensuite which was nice but the shared showers were even nicer

    Lovely hostel and location, slightly dampened by some other guests (though this is entirely not the Hostel’s fault). Some difficulty finding bathrooms as opposed to washrooms though

    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.

    Very Good

    I'm not a strong believer that cheap have to mean bad quality, this hotel is really good located, Cork, in general, is an amazing safety place, normally people are really friendly and nice. If you are a woman I strongly recommend that you book an all-female share room, breakfast is not included and the cleaning is not the stronger thing about the hotel. Sometimes they let outsiders in the common room and they made "harassment comments". The price is really good if you book in advance.

    1. The address in HereWeGo Maps that comes out when you put in Sheilas Hostel is wrong! 2. Everything is so tiny! In rooms there are literally only beds, not even a chair or a table, not to mention lockers. 3. Bathrooms were being “cleaned” once a day, which is not nearly enough, but even then, toilets were as dirty as the day before. 4. The staff was really friendly and helpful, that’s the only real plus.

    Rooms are so small and some of them have just a little windows that it makes a person feel squeezed and on the edge of panic attack. First room was dark with a small window abow the kitchen. We asked for another room an we got one with the bed directly near the window (a stuff boy was very kind) but it was extremely tiny and other guests didn't have a sun light at all. In both rooms an toilets a lot of small reparations should be done.

    No lockers; place smelt awful; bathrooms made us feel dirty and felt quite uncomfortable/unsafe because of some of the guests. Had a bad experience with roommates on the first night which probably impacted this review. Highlight of this visit was leaving. Sorry.
