  • It was very difficult to navigate through the bar to check in due to the check in being in the back and the bar being full. In the room, space was very limited and it was hard to not be in someone’s way. The bathroom was okay but had mold in the corner probably due to the shower. The beds were decent. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were very quiet.

  • The showers are located in the centre of the building, so aeration is poor. The humidity builds up, even in the nearby rooms, and it smells. Would need windows or better ventilation. Also, the rooms are too small for the number of beds. With the bar downstairs, it can get pretty loud. Didn’t really like our stay, but not the worst hostel on our trip, or even in Cork. So kuddos for that.

  • the hostel is in a great location just a few minutes walking distance to the bus and train stations, and also everything else in Cork city centre. They have a pub downstairs which was great on those occasions when you dont feel like going out to the pubs in the city. However, the the wifi was very unstable and frustrating especially in the rooms. Also, beds dont have individual plug-in sockets for charging phones. All us had to be using a power outlet near the door which was a bit annoying
