I've stayed in many hostels and this has been one of my favorites. The staff was very helpful and check on my list luggage every day. The rooms had a private toilet & shower, and the shared spaces were nice too. Since its next to UCC & the bus, it's quieter than the city centre with the same amenities.

My fiancé and I stayed at Cork International Hostel for two nights. When we arrived at the hostel the staff were helpful and polite, however they handed us a set of sheets and as this has never happened to us before we were a tad confused. We asked the gentleman what exactly we were to do with them and he... More

This hostel was really good for the price but do expect it to be loud, and we found it to be cold at night as well. Wifi only works in the main lobby, but the location is great! Also a kitchen and dining tool available which is very helpful for the budgeted traveler!

We stayed here recently for two nights in a twin room with private bathroom. We paid 40 Euros per night for the two of us and were very disappointed in the room facilities, staff and extra charges. Staff: All three staff members that we encountered were unfriendly and uninterested in helping in anyway or going above and beyond the bare... More

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
