Liked: Nice old building, sink outside the ensuite, pleasant big dining area to use computers.

Disliked: Staff were efficient but it would cost them little to be friendlier and more welcoming. This is a factor that puts some other hostels on my favorites list.

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.

09 February 2013

Liked: It was a place to sleep.

Disliked: First off the Wifi cost one euro for thirty minutes which was frustrating for me since I had to work for the majority of the stay on my computer. Also the room was advertised with a free breakfast included but when I woke up next morning their was no such thing. The pictures displayed on the website did not match up to how the hostel actually looked. Finally there was no lockers to lock up bag in as I went to different trips and locations around the city.
