Stayed for 1 night, and had a very comfy sleep! The hostel has a nice bar attached to it, great for chilling. Friendly bar staff as i travelled up solo from Dublin for a concert, and the guy with the moustache behind the bar gave great bar recommendations. Only fault was the charging socket beside my bed was broke & loose on the wall, so couldnt charge my phone directly beside the bed. However, still a great stay, central and close to pubs & shopping area. Would stay again when back in Cork

It’s more expensive compared to Sheila’s Hostel, I don’t drink alcohol so the bar downstairs was no use to me, The dormitory had 4 beds which was nice, and an en-suite bathroom, The security was good, where I left my bike and in the kitchen, It was a climb up to the dorm on the 3rd floor!

Rooms were small and hard to move around in, kind of uncomfortable. Bar atmosphere was great as it’s right downstairs. Staff were super friendly. Did book a 3 bed room which turned out to be a double bottom bunk w a single on top, would have been really awkward if we were solo travellers.
