I recently stayed at Siles Hostel and was very satisfied with the experience. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, good locker facilities. Its also a very clean and well run hostel, loads of sockets for charging phones and a good breakfast. what more do you want from a hostel particularly when it charges one of the lowest prices in Cork

I staid only one night and it was a suitable hostel. Dorm had 4 bunks and was a fine night sleep. Hostel has a large kitchen and lots of common space. Location is good, a 5 minute walk from bus station. Overall, a fine hostel.

I paid €60 for a private room for one noght hoping for a small bit of luxury. How wrong I was. The room had a bunk bed, shelf, mirror and a place to hang clothes (but no hangers) and that was it. The walls were crumbling and cracked, dirt and mould were present and the noise - oh the noise!...

Being almost 60 and never having experienced a hostel, Sheila's was the place I decided to do so at. Had a private room, so didn't really get the full experience, but enjoyed my one night in Cork at Sheila's Hostel.

I stayed here with a friend on Friday night and had quite an unpleasant experience. The room itself was tiny, there wasn't place to swing a cat. I'm glad we had decided to leave our bags in the car and only bring the essentials with us, as we would have had no place to put our bags!! As well as...

The place looks a little tired but it is in a good location for the city centre, bus station and a short walk from the train station. It has a good size kitchen to cook your meals, overall a safe place to stay for budget travellers.

I do not recommend this place for couples, even though the staff is very friendly and the location is quite good. Rooms are more cupboards than rooms, too small to put your luggage without having to move it around to open doors. Some rooms also don't have much light such as ours and the whole hotel looks really old and...

I stayed here for 4 nights and was impressed! The staff are so friendly and I met some amazing people who I ended up spending a few of my days with! Very relaxing place! Great spot to stay. They have a roof where you can take drinks which is nice on cool evenings! Just really couldnt be happier. I recommend...

We loved our stay at Sheila's. It's a really welcoming hostel and a nice location not too far from the main bits of the city centre. The staff were super helpful, annotating maps for us and making great recommendations for where to visit on a Tuesday night! Also very patient when we got back slightly worse for wear and locked...

The Stay Cork Apartments are not part of the Hostel but sit at the end of the same building. They are clean and spacious with really good living and kitchen space. the apartments are a stones throw from McCurtain street with a short walk that takes you right into the centre of CRK. Despite being so close to the centre...
