Liked: i liked it was spacious rooms. clean bedding and close to city center and also the free parking

Disliked: not the same name as what you book to and what it says outside the property, does not stand out, hard to find and also the car park. On the website it states from N22 turn left onto St Patricks Street. This was not helpful as the N22 is like a motorway. Also more information about Cork would have been nice. Very few leaflets

Liked: It is very comfortable and value for money. The cleanest hostel I've ever stayed. Spacious dining room and leisure room, clean room. And each room has it's own private bathroom. It's fantastic!

Disliked: Nothing in particular. But there's no clear signboard. So, it's bit hard to find it.
