    This was my first hostel experience and it was definitely a good one. There was a good welcoming atmosphere, with many people having nice conversations all around and outside the hostel. The toilets and showers were fine, as well as the kitchen. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to Cork!

    Very good hostel; clean and the staff are very nice. Be aware it’s not an over 16 hostel so there can be annoying kids running around

    Perfect for us, we were just down for one night going to Scullion in the Everyman. So very handy for the train station and the Everyman! All good.... :)

    The hostel is situated in a perfect location and has all the amenities you need. Members of the staff are kind, friendly and always keen on helping you or answering any questions. We stayed at a private twin room with shared bathroom and the beds and room where comfy. Overall, a good place to stay. The only bad thing is that the place is big and with old cracking wooden floors which means it can be a bit noisy until late in the evening with other guests shouting and bumping the doors.

    Really good place to stay in Cork. Nice room, good facilities, helpful staff and great location. Breakfast options are too limited, but other than that, it was very good.

    Beds were clean and overnight laundry service was fab! My review is based on my experience with the private room, which was a great price for the location. Staff were friendly too. Only cons for me was the shower was a bit wonky, took ages to heat up and you kept having to press the button. Also my window didn’t have blinds and looked right onto the back patio! Had to cover with a towel and pillow for privacy 😬

    Be prepared to deadlift Your luggages on the stairs, as there's no lift in the hostel and the place itself is also on a massive hill. We've stayed in a 4 bedroom one, and it's extremely tiny. There were 4 bunk beds and a chair in the room and that's it. If You have big luggages, You can keep them in a locked storage room or under Your bed. Kitchen is equipped, but the pans are dirty and not bc of the staff, but bc ppl are Aholes and don't clean them after themselves reception is kind and helpful

    Six of us stayed here for two days in late September 2022. We had a very small six person room with 3 bunk beds. Very tight. Room and shower was clean and the bunks are high enough to store your luggage. They have great laundry service for 10 euros, done overnight. Location sucks. Up a very steep hill. Two nights was more than enough for us.

    Pros: pretty clean, 5-6 min walk to city centre, staff very nice, charging station/shelf at bedside, has a laundry service (but it cost 10 euors), wifi works very well Cons: no curtains around beds, rooms are cramped, can’t fully open suitcase due to lack of space, no area in room to lock belongings, you can pay to rent lockers but they don’t fit luggage, bed sheets are flat sheets not fitted sheets so they don’t stay in place so you’re sleeping in the cheap plastic mattress

    Safe but not too clean. Room had no window to the outside - the bathroom did. But the room had a window with what seemed like to be the next room but it was too high I couldn’t tell. Room was verryyyy small with 6 girls crammed. Only maybe two people can be packing at once. Not horrible but if there are better options for a similar price go there. Also breakfast is 4€ and is literally just cereal.
