  • Within walking distance from train station. Bedrooms are above the bar, but never heard any noise from the bar. Clean. Very close to bus station.

  • There were a couple of men who were hanging around and were making some of the patrons uncomfortable.

  • The 6people-room is really small and so uncorfortable for the lugagges and people moving inside it. The shower, we have, seems to have a common water tank which is really slow reacharging. So be carefull if you want to use the WC and take a shower in a row.. :S

  • Great location. Staff was quite nice and it was fun to have the bar right downstairs with live music every night. My only complaint is the showers/sinks run out of water easily, so sometimes you're stuck waiting for the water tanks to refill.

  • Everything about this hostel was pretty much just okay, except the location, which was slightly less than okay. Not a very pretty area, though it is within reasonable walking distance to the bus station. Frankly, Cork itself was a bit of a disappointment, other than Blarney Castle and its grounds, which was wonderful. This hostel was adequate, the staff was nice enough, but I certainly would not go out of my way to stay there again.
