The hostel was cold no internet service and just a very unpleasant stay. The worse thing is the walk up the massive hill in Cork just to get to the place and then greeted by WOT U WANT??? not a very nice start and an awful stay ..

We've visited many hostels during our journey in Ireland, unfortunately Sheila's was by far the worst. And not even the cheapest. Our room got changed last minute to a room that probably was rejected. On opening the door it was filled with flies and musquito's. Room was just dirty, linen not washed, bed should be thrown out. Only go here... More

Currently laying in one of the beds in a 6 bed mixed dorm. It's so cold I'm wearing 2 sweaters....I don't think this hostel actually has any heating. And the bathrooms are beyond gross and my bed is definitely not clean. This was not the best decision I ever made. Staff is lovely though

I recently stayed at Siles Hostel and was very satisfied with the experience. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, good locker facilities. Its also a very clean and well run hostel, loads of sockets for charging phones and a good breakfast. what more do you want from a hostel particularly when it charges one of the lowest prices in Cork

I staid only one night and it was a suitable hostel. Dorm had 4 bunks and was a fine night sleep. Hostel has a large kitchen and lots of common space. Location is good, a 5 minute walk from bus station. Overall, a fine hostel.

I paid €60 for a private room for one noght hoping for a small bit of luxury. How wrong I was. The room had a bunk bed, shelf, mirror and a place to hang clothes (but no hangers) and that was it. The walls were crumbling and cracked, dirt and mould were present and the noise - oh the noise!... More

Being almost 60 and never having experienced a hostel, Sheila's was the place I decided to do so at. Had a private room, so didn't really get the full experience, but enjoyed my one night in Cork at Sheila's Hostel.
