I've been travelling for 3 months now and this is the worst hostel I have stayed in. I booked in to a 6 bed female dorm with an ensuite. The room has hardly any space to move, but that's forgivable. What's not forgivable is that when you're squishing into this confined space you have to watch out for the mould on the walls. Anyone who has breathing issues, don't stay here. The bathroom is also mouldy and the shower pumps out cold water. Just all around water issues.
The only things this place has going for it is the location, the friendly staff and how cheap it is. You may argue that the pros outweigh the cons and in some ways they do, but to me it just feels like a health and safety hazard, especially since I've stayed in places just as cheap and haven't been bothered by the level of cleanliness.

Booked a two bedroom en-suite. The rooms are tired and could do with a bit of an upgrade. The shower was one of those where you have to keep pressing a button to get the water to flow - not my favourite.

That said the accommodation did the job at a fair price. I think you have to remember that you get what you pay for. It's not The Ritz but doesn't pretend to be.

Staff were great, particularly Paddy at reception.

This place cost me 17 EUR per night. It was not super clean but not super dirty, breakfast was pretty poor, my bed was comfy even if the room was cramped, and the location is good, very central.

The long walk up the hill was tough.

Everything has to be evaluated against the price. Is this place anything special, no. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay and recognise that the cost reflects the service, then Shelias is a good place to stay.

This Hostel was the unfortunate end to a run of great hostels in Ireland. Service is fine but unfortunately doesn't make up for the horrible kitchen and cramped dirty rooms and general feeling of neglect.

Try to grab a spot at another hostel if you can.

Thought we would try this place while traveling. Staff was friendly and accommodations were as booked. It did not, however, feel safe nor comfortable for us as mothers traveling with teenage daughters.
