Positive Reviews

Decent location

Guests have tended to find the location of this hostel acceptable. While not in the heart of the city centre, amenities are within a short drive or a fairly reasonable walk from the property. As this property is located away from bars and restaurants, the rooms are quieter as a result.

Good choice of amenities

Overall, previous guests have been reasonably pleased with the selection of amenities available at this hostel. The social spaces, in particular, have proved popular although guests have also appreciated the availability of an on-site kitchen.


While some guests have questioned the value for money offered at this hostel, the general feeling is that this property offers a budget-friendly accommodation option in Cork. Very few guests mention any problems with the Wi-Fi and it is felt that this offers additional value.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

Although few people expect luxury when they stay at a hostel, the rooms here are often described as particularly small and basic. It is perhaps for this reason that guests appreciate the choice of social spaces at this hostel.

Cleanliness seems to vary

Guests have had very different opinions about the standard of cleanliness here. Some have described the property as clean and well kept throughout while others have been less impressed, particularly by the cleanliness in the rooms. It appears that housekeeping could take place more often.

Service-related concerns

Opinion about the standard of service here also varies. While the staff appears friendly enough, guests often have a different opinion of the owner who is found to be rather brusque and unwelcoming at times.
