  • 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

  • Great hostel with an adjacent bar which allows the hostel guests to enjoy livemusic and drinks. The rooms were, although rather small, very clean and cozy. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

  • Even though my fiancé and I stayed only one evening, we really enjoyed ourselves! It's smack in the middle of town, and only 5 or so minute walks from the Kent train station and bus station. The receptionist was wet kind and answered any questions we had about touring the city. We booked a 6 person mixed room, which was small, but each bed had 2 large luggage baskets underneath that could fit one hiking backpack in each easily. You must remember to bring your own padlock, though! Overall, great!
