Sheila's was a very positive experience for me. The location and accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the staff service was great. The host, Paddy, was especially friendly and helpful.

Great hostel, friendly staff, awsome cafe (coffee served in a french press - yummy :) ! Bagels, muffins, sweets, even breakfast were available for purchase. Safe, convenient location. Knoweledgeble staff. Storage lockers, laundry service AND free, easy to use WiFi, all critical offerings to me.

Beds were surprisingly comfortable and the facility was quite clean.

Cozy cinema room to relax and unwind in bean bag chairs - fun!!! Oh, and don't miss the sauna!!!!!!!!!

One more thing, a book trade where you pick a book and leave one you have read - what a smart idea!

Can't wait to go back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room was like a dungeon and the shower was impossible to use- ice cold water, shuts off every 20 seconds (literally), and water streams so thin and far apart you hardly get wet. Was afraid bed would collapse and having no light from the outside was very dreary. On positive note, staff was helpful and free wireless available- good location too.

Stayed November 2010, travelled as a couple

Very simply. Sort out the linen and the washroom/toilet/showering facilities.

Pros: Nice common area, they put on a good breakfast for the group (althou we brought our own cereal, they have a bar at reception so you can get a nice casual drink if you just feel like staying in/or you're too wrecked to go out.

Cons: Toilets, washroom, showers; all unnecessarily grotty and dirty. For god sake just sort it out and get it cleaned!! Scrape away all the dirt and retile/re-seal the feicing place. What the hell is the story with the sheet on the bed? They basically use double sheets and fold them over sideways. i.e it's like a sideways apple pie bed that you can only get into on one side. Ridiculous.

There are far better hostels in Cork, Kinlay springs to mind even thou it's a bit of a hike up the hill and a bit further from town. Still it's gotten Sheila's beaten hands down.
