If you're looking for a truly wonderful host, I strongly recommend staying here. Tracy seems to have created a wonderful place for travelers. She even picked us up out of the rain when she passed us after a long day at Blarney. The room itself had some nice touches and was quite roomy and comfortable.

Such a lovely place! Tracy, the owner was so kind and helpful. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm and it was nice and warm with a private bathroom. Security felt very safe and the beds were comfortable. Very close to the train station and about a ten minute walk to the city center. Safe area with lots of... More

Hostel is located a little far from the city center. Wi-Fi is smooth and easily accessible on the top floor. There is a free food shelf but tea/coffee can be missed. Room for 4 people is small, dark (small window beneath of celling) and dampy. Rooms and toilet room are not labeled so you can get lost.

Firstly, Tracy is a hoot. She is just so welcoming and amiable you feel right at home. The hostel is very clean. It has a kitchen for use and ample seating in the lounge area. Wifi is free and works throughout the hostel. The beds are very comfortable, and I had absolutely no problem with the other guests in the... More

Owner was really nice and helpful! She was very knowledgeable about directions and prices. Hostel was clean and beds were comfortable. Not to far from city center, train and bus stations (10min walk). The showers were the push button type which can be annoying. Overall nice place to stay.

I spent two nights here and I could have easily stayed longer (alas my plans were to travel onward). The hostel is across the street from the train station, so I didn't have to lug my bags all over the place. The price is certainly right, only 13 euros a night for the eight person dorm (wasn't full when I... More

We stayed in March upon our journey to Dublin for St Patricks day. The Lady that checked us in was incredibly knowledgeable about the city. The location is not too far from the train station as well as the bus that will take you out to Blarney Castle. Overall i enjoyed my stay and was happy with everything.

It looks like a big family house and the hostess could be your auntie. The hostess is really nice and she's the one who keeps the hostel always clean and tidy. I stayed only for 1 night and the room was pretty spacious. Unfortunatly most of the dorms have no bathroom but the shared ones are big and everything's is... More

Traveling abroad with my daughter and NOT renting car so location to public transport was of most importance. This hostel is literally across the street from the Kent station barely a minutes walk. Our plane was late so we missed our first train to Cork and were rushing to beat that 2 p.m. deadline when they close the door for... More

You can see it from the train station and it's a short walk from the bus station and city centre. Tracy, the owner, is approachable and gives great advice. She booked a great tour to Kinsale, Blarney, and Cobh for us. The hostel is clean and well-maintained. It was one of the only hostels I've been to with a clean... More
