Bru Bar & Hostel, Cork, Ireland
4th Dec 2017

This hostel is fine for a short stay in Cork. The kitchen facilities are adequate and clean. Check out time is generous, and the staff is helpful and friendly. There are enough plug sockets for each bed, and the rooms are mostly clean, but I'm not sure they wash the duvet covers and the sheets are a bit itchy. I don't like the push button showers, but the temperature is fine. The live music nights and drink discounts at the bar are nice. Loud, rude guests, but that's not the hostel's fault.

Woodquay Hostel Galway City, Galway, Ireland
24th Nov 2017

Bring your shower shoes and low expectations. The staff at this hostel is pretty friendly, and they offer discount tours, but those are the only positive things. There's no security or lockers for luggage, just a pile of luggage in the lobby for staff to watch. Too few plug sockets and rooms have keys, not cards, that you have to leave at the desk before leaving the hostel. Only 2 showers and 2 toilets in the building. Filthy floors, carpets and bathrooms. Freezing cold. Cash only. Won't return.

Ashfield Hostel, Dublin, Ireland
23rd Nov 2017

It's the little things that make this hostel great. Comfortable beds, secure luggage cages, a decent kitchen, fantastic location, and incredibly helpful staff made Ashfield Hostel the best I've stayed in. I stayed in both the 18 Bed dorm, which was surprisingly comfortable, and the 6 bed dorm. Both were ensuite, with enough showers and toilets for everyone, and every bed has plug sockets and USB sockets. I met some awesome people in this hostel, and I'll stay there again without hesitation.
