Score from 1196 reviews Very good
good tv room , quite stove for cooking
the internet signal is poor, and lack a video câmera in the kitchen,
Good location to explore cork on foot, easy to meet people in the hostel, comfortable stay overall.
Room and bedding were dusty and smelly, need better cleaning. Wifi worked in the room but was slow and flaky.
The staff at Kinlay House were really friendly and helpful. We had just moved to Cork but wanted to quickly find jobs and an apartment - suggestions from the staff made this much easier! The kitchen facilities are great, the beds comfortable and we made really good friends with all the other guests we met.
It was private, realtively quiet, clean and secure. Staff was extremely helpful. Shower was larger than most Hostels making it easier to access. Location is pretty good, within 5 minutes California walk to the city center.
The bottom of the bedroom window was AT the floor. Literally flush with it and did not open. The stairs to the room are very steep and narrow. The location is close to town center but up a slight hill.
Bathwater is not very hot
I liked leaving.
I don't know..... Was free when we need it.
Bad, old furniture, bad showers, old kitchen low in dishes... It blows through windows.
i loved the friendly,smiling staff! Loved meeting the others staying there from all over the world
the mattress was saggy and created a poor nights sleep
The staff were all nice and friendly, and very help full in looking after my personal belongings in a safe place, and i loved the Wi Fi as i spend most of my life on it. And I Was Made To Feel Welcome
staff were great.
There were no cups in the kitchen and the breakfast was badly thought out. Why not butter? why not milk in a carton instead of tiny sachets of milk substitute?
Everyone at reception were nice. Our room was okay and the bathroom was clean.
Charles Dickens breakfast of bread and tea. It was kind of a laugh.
it was great value for money,location was good,with the staff being helpful. Good night's sleep had by both. Vending machine also,which was well used by both of us.
staff, location, cleanliness
loud room mates
It had a nice large and comfy TV room.
I found the toilets very dirty. Even some of the toilets didn't have locks. There was only 1 computer to access the internet. I would say having travelled both within Ireland and internationally that this is one of the poorest hostels that I have ever stayed in.
Great staff and good location. Reasonably priced and kept clean.
No powerpoints or shelves if you're on the top bed. No room lockers.
The location is great, really close to the City Center. The TV room is quite ok and for a youth hostel this is actually not bad. Some of the staff are lovely and welcoming.
It's an old building that needs renovation in many rooms and public areas. Other staff member are apparently doing this job just for money, so they don't have the best customer relation service...
Staff were super helpful and freindly, especially Andy. Loads of local knowledge to help us have an ace trip. Room was great and very clean. Shower was powerful. Toast for breakfast too.
comfy bed and warm rooms!
couldn't get wifi in room although others said they were able to...
Price was right
Beds a bit uncomfortable, but adequate
The Staff- helpful and cooperative.
The room was small for the price but the location was convenient.
Good atmosphere Staff friendly and helpful Ideal location
Walls a bit thin but earplugs sorted it fine. Pillows were very thin but I did forget to bring my own (it is a hostel) so just used a towel.
Previously having stayed in the old part of the house, this time, I got a female only ensuite dorm in the new wing of the building, this was so much better. Please renovate the old part!
Everything. Close community
Had to keep pressing button every 5 seconds to keep it going and it was getting colder and colder.
the room was really smelly
Not in the main house, but could use the facilities there. Free on site car parking. 5 mins walking from the city centre, very accessible to all the tourist stuff
