This Hostel is right across from the train station and a short walk to the center of town. Lots of restaurants near by as well. The staff were very nice and for the cost it was reasonable for one nights stay. I felt it wasn't as clean as could be. The shared bathroom wasn't in the best shape. The rooms... More

Close to the railway station/bus stop, so a good 15 minutes walk into town. Area was fine. Staff (Akif, the manager and the lady who cleaned) were excellent - always around if you should need them. Both were eastern European but spoke English very well and were very helpful. Kitchen was well equipped. I will come back again.

This hostel, near the train station, is within walking distance of the city centre. The host is fantastic, so welcoming, offering advice on where to go and events on in the city. We booked a double room and I really can't fault it. It was spotlessly clean and truly lovely for a hostel. All in all a great place to... More

The hostel is not so far away from the city center (15-20 mins walk) and the most confortable thing is to have the train station- bus stop just on the street. I took a twin room, very small and a little dark but enough cozy and clean. I don't have any complain about that. I really appreciated the kindness of... More

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
