“St patrick's day..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Fantastic for a place to throw your bags and get out in to Cork, but showers are limited to only a few for women, had to wait a good hour for a shower to become free - but presume the hostel was full for St Pats Day, so no drama.

Very friendly staff, good Irish hospitality :)

Room Tip: We were in the front of the hostel, people smoke outside and we had the window open...bit gross.

I stayed for a week, and to get there was the hardest part. You have to go up the steep hill, followed by the stairs to get to your room. I wouldn't recommend this place for one-night stay.

Apart from that, I had a relaxing time at Sheilas. I was able to use free wi-fi in my dorm room on the third floor, which was convenient. They have an amazing cinema room with more than 100 films to choose from. Great option for a rainy day.

It takes about five minutes to get to the city centre. Just save some energy to face the uphill to go back to the hostel!!

Overall had a good time in this hostel. The private room we stayed in was very basic and the sheets didn't seem clean but they room was cheap. They have a great kitchen, with good cooking facilities and plenty of room for food. The location is good, however a very steep climb, especially for those carrying backpacks. Staff were polite and toilets were clean. Overall would recommend.

This is a pretty run of the mill hostel. It's within walking distance to the city centre though certainly not in it. The rooms are OK. The staff are very friendly. The bathrooms are a bit ordinary though. The dining and living area is OK too. All in all there's nothing really bad to say about it but nothing fantastic either. It's a good safe option if you are looking for a cheap stay in Cork.
