As you may or may not know, in some cultures, the term "sheila" means "girl" - and this beauty has a place for you! Sheilas is situated in Cork - do not be afraid of the Zen-like hill test - you will definitely be rewarded with great hospitality. It is buzzing with people, and this is reflective of the community... More

Every time that I visit Cork, I start at Sheilas. They are usually the cheapest option in Cork and the location is great. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms can be quite cramped and get a bit warm is no windows are open, but I always try to get a bed near a window too keep cool.... More

We paid peanuts to stay in Sheilas hostel. lt is located a few minutes walk from the centre of Cork. The room was small and basic but clean and the shower was at the end of the corridoor. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Anyone giving Sheilas hostel a low rating is probably fogetting how cheap it is. For... More

Although it is a big hostel they were extremely flexible so we could make our booking on short notice in a busy time of the year. The hostel is very close to the city center and Cork's attractions (but be aware it is on a hill!) Like I said the staff is very nice and always helpful. The rooms are... More

My wife and I spent three nights here. We were generally happy with our experience. For a hostel I'm not sure we could have expected better. We paid for a private en suite room. It was a very small room with bunk beds, but it was functional and we were backpacking. They had lockers to rent for cheap (definitely recommend).... More

I guess the only good thing is that you are close to the town and don't have far too travel. The internet picture if very deceiving. I pictured a nice room and clean. I've stayed in about 17 different hostels in the past 3 weeks.... There are nice hostels, OK hostels, and then these kind. The appearance from the street... More

This place is the worst I have seen. Or room was stuffy with 2 tiny windows at the top of the wall that you couldn't open. The room had mold on the wall and smelled musty. The sheets were old and pilled. The hallways and common areas felt grimy. The showers were even dirtier and had moldy shower curtains and... More

I've been to Cork for one week with my classmates of pharmacy from France and our professors. First, I'd say that it's not easy to go with big bags at the hostel, you have to climb, climb and climb, and then you face the stairs ! Stairs before coming, stairs in the hostel. I was in a 6 beds-room with... More

Sheila's Hostel was great. From here you are walking distance to the bus, train, and the down town district. The staff is very helpful. They will tell you where good places to eat and hang out are in the city, and help you with directions to get there. The rooms are a bit small, so if you are good with... More

Sheila's has a great staff. The breakfast is good and includes orange juice. Bedding and a pillow are included but the commons room closes at 2:00am. Wish there were lockers under the beds; the only lockers available are on the ground floor.
