“Noisy, dirty, out of showers...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

It has a good localization (although it is on a very tilted road), near to the city center, train and bus stations. That's all I can say as positive.
Walls seems to be made of paper. Anyone making noise in the hostel seems to be inside your room. Terrible option if you want to sleep.
Showers aren't enough. And if you wake up early (or can't sleep at all due to the noise) you might find no hot water on the toilets.
There is no locker on the rooms, You must pay to use the hostel's locker. 5 euros as a deposit to be charge 1 euro a day. Too expensive.
Breakfast is a joke.
Rooms are poorly cleaned, dust and trash from previous guests is their "welcome" to your (most likely) not tidy bedrooms.

Room Tip: Don't go.

The hostel has a good location. It is not in the centre but just a 5 minutes walk away. The kitchen was large and there a nice common rooms. The room was very small for 6 persons and at the night the hostel was very loud, therefore only 3 points.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and paid 46 € per night for "double room". Double room was a small room with bunk bad and the bottom bed is bigger one. The facilities are poor, kitchen is dirty and nothing is complimentary when you want to cook for yourself (salt, oil, absolutely anything). Breakfast is not incuded in price and it costs 3 € and includes tea, coffee, juice, bread, butter, jam and some cereals. The reception staff is good and helpful. The biggest advantage is the location cause it's just like 5 min to the bus and train station and the city centre...

I certainly had a great time with the people staying here, as most hostel experiences I've had. That said, I found the personnel, in particular two of them, quite rude and disrespectful. They know who they are, and you will know who they are as well. If they don't don't like their job, welcomming people from around the globe and answering their needs, then QUIT!
The place was often dirty by the end of the day or even early in the morning. Trash and food were not thrown away. I was expecting the rats to come live with us at some point. The location could not be any better. Bus tour office down the street, near down town, definitely worth your wallet for a short stay. Loved Cork!

Room Tip: Take a room that a shower and no roomate.

Stayed there just for one night. Our room was fairly small but the beds were comfy. All the facilities were clean and well-maintained. The prices are unbeatable. Location is alright when you've got a car.

2 loud mouthed & crudely unfunny cretins in the kitchen speaching off at some hapless American woman who they believed they were entertaining when I stayed here on the 5/6 of November; guitaring pony-tailed types & I think one of them was some kind of 'staff', they were joined by a professional Australian type who was sliming around the place: puke, I managed a slice of toast & a drop of tea: any more and I would have heaved.
