I had been travelling around Ireland, staying at B&Bs and thought of a hostel in Cork as I was only going to be there for one night, and coming in late at that. Had read good reviews, but overall, I now remember why I don't stay in hostels anymore. As hostels go, it is fine. I had paid for a 4 bedder rate, but shown into a 6-bedder, which the receptionist said 2 bunks were 'not in service', so there would only be 4 pax that night. The room that I stayed in was on the ground floor. Clean bunks, and ensuite was also clean, but the room was somehow near the kitchen, so could smell fried sausages for most of the time. The reception staff are very friendly though...and I really appreciated the 1 euro luggage storage. The hostel itself is up on a hill, so you have to be prepared for the climb. Its near some pubs as well, so easy to walk back at night.
