    Superb

    Great facilities. Great staff!

    Its at the top of a hill, walk-able, just be weary if you have lots of bags.

    Good lockers available. You could stay in the living area after the check-out.

    Breakfast is in reception and it's poor.

    The staff was really nice, everytime we needed someting they gave it to us with a smile. The kitchen was nice, big with lots of furnitures and space, even if there were lots of people. The living room was ok, with music and free Wifi. Also the dining room was ok. It was really nice that we had the ensuite bathroom and also always clean.It is nice if you want to stay just for a weekend or two, three days without heavy luggage but not longer.

    There is no elevator so if you have heavy luggage that is really uncomfortable. We booked the 6 bedroom room and it was really really small. Fortunately it was not full but it would have been impossible to stay there in 6. The Wifi works only in the living room and nowhere else. In the bedroom it was really cold, and the heating did not work.

    Meeting other world travelers. Fairly clost to bus and city center.

    The HILL I had to walk up to get there.

    The toilet had not been cleaned and the shower had not been cleaned, and the blind for the window didn't work.

    Superb

    Middle aged gentleman at reception was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a tip for a spectacular cycling route. Very close to city center and a great base for exploring downtown Cork. Good facilities (24h snack shop, free wireless network, common areas, showers and sauna, and a small bicycle storage room).

    The wireless network didn't reach our room. Be prepared for a steep uphill climb to the hostel.

    I think that the place had a great location, and the building itself is quite beautiful

    In comparison with sheila's from dublin, breakfast was a bit poor

    Fabulous

    Personnel is really helpful. The hostel is on an excellent spot for pubbing and shopping; close to bus & trainstation, - so it's easy to visit Cobh, Kinsale and Killarney, and have some harbours and nature.
