The location was great, only a couple minutes by foot from the train and bus stations. Attractions such as Shandon's bells were also fairly close. The facilities were good. Had a full kitchen, laundry area, showers and even a sauna. I would stay there again.

It is a nice hostel near to the city centre, it is perfect to stay one night or more with friends. The most important thing for me is that it is clean and The staff is friendly and ready to answer every question. If I come back in Cork, I will choose it again!

I was in Sheila's Hostel in late April and I really liked it. It has a good location, and the rooms are clean. I was in a 12 beds dorm and on 3 nights, there was 2 nights where we were just 3 people. There was a bathroom in the dorm, but out of order at the time. The staff... More

It's a tradicional hostel with a good location - about 10 minutes to the city centre.The staffs are friendly, the beds are ok.But the showers are bad, you have to push 15 seconds for water and after again..again..again.Aslo the bathrooms are very small, but for 1 night it worked for us.

Stayed 2 nights in Sheila's. The staff were very accommodating, our friend was stuck for somewhere to stay and although officially fully booked they jiggled things around and fit her in which was amazing of them. The hostel itself is fairly average, we were in a 6 bed dorm, which was a long room and very narrow, not great for... More

I would say this hostel is what you would expect from paying a low rate to stay in a hostel. The beds were comfortable and clean enough and although the walls were thin, everyone was very respectful of quiet time. The rooms (at least ours) was very narrow and small and our side didn't have a window so it felt... More

This is a typical hostel. I shared a private room with a friend; it was small but it worked for one night. The room was clean, and the sheets looked clean. The shared bathrooms are loud, and sometimes there is a wait. The shower was timed and you can't adjust the temperature which wasn't fun. It was fine though. The... More

It is pretty good. We were in 5 people and have shared a room in this hostel on Cork city. The Sheilas Hostel always has a lot of people traveling and sleeping there. I really really really recommend it!

We went to Sheilas for one night during Valentines day week end to enjoy the spirit of Cork for the France-Ireland 6 nations match. The first thing was that the bedroom wasn't ready at the checking time even though booked in advance. The rooms are more then small, the price is overrated for the (called) quality of the bedroom, the... More

Average hostel, but this is not a bad thing, most things in life are average , that's why it's called average. Clean and nice staff. It's a 10 minute walk into the city center which in a place like Cork is a good bit out. Nice atmosphere.
