We only stayed in this hostel for one night in an all female 6 bed dorm. Everything in the hostel was clean and it was well equipt with a kitchen and dining room and lounge room with TV. Free WiFi available downstairs is also a bonus. It is in a good location an easy walk from the city centre with... More

Nice hostel, within easy walking distance of town. Warm and clean with pleasant staff - when we ordered breakfasts the guy even asked if we wanted the scrambled eggs in or next to the toast! As it was quiet me and my sister were able to have a room to ourselves which was good. Not quite getting the five stars... More

We've got nice, clean room, with bathroom and nice view. The staff was helpful and friendly. Okay, it takes around 15min walk to get to the center of the town, but famous university is just across the street and bus stop is in front of the hostel... so no need to worry ;) I would stay there again, definitely!

While a bit out of town (15 min walk), Cork International Youth Hostel offers good value for a hostel. We took advantage of the private room option (20 EUR per person per night) and were accomodated in a spacious four bed room, shower and toilet were ensuite. As usual in hostels, the basin was in the bedroom and not in... More

I pre booked for 3nights stay, on arrival I paid upfront. However in the bedrooms the wash basin is located in the room. Gggrrrr how terrible!! I had to witness my roommates brushing their teeth and scrubbing and cleaning their faces. To make matter worst, I deceived to check out after one night stay, I was told no refund. I... More

This Hostel was clean and the staff was very kind. I slept quite well, the sheets, pillows were spotless and the hostel itself wasn't very noisy after a long night and bathroom was fairly clean. However, I didn't quite understand why the shower and the toilet were on the same level and not divided. The water from the shower was... More

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of September and actually really enjoyed it. It was clean and I liked that they handed us our bedding when we checked in (that way you know it isn't dirty). It was nice to have a bathroom and vanity in each room, most hostels only provide 2-3 showers and bathrooms for... More

I stayed for close to a week but didn't spend a ton of time at the hostel. It is quite out of the way if you are walking- about 25 minutes from the bus station on Parnell. There is a bus stop outside. I used that as my landmark when coming home as Redclyffe is the name of the house... More
