Hostel with good service and friendly staff, close to the main train and bus stations (which is handy, if you have no car and to visit around : Cobh, Kinsale, etc... and it's really easy to walk to the city centre from there, and you have a live bar music 5 minutes away.

Extremely friendly and chatty staff without being too in your face. They really make you feel at home and help with everything. Bedroom was cosy, heating turned on in the early morning, bedsheets clean, lovely lounge and common room. Only flaws are a lack of women's only bathrooms and washrooms but I think that's just because this place must have...

Nice Hostel within short work of the centre of Cork with pleasant staff. Shiela's also offers a discount at a few nearby restaurants and bars, the downside is the uphill hike to get there. The private rooms are a little small, with no table / storage space (mine also had a skylight - no window - so limited ventilation), but...

Now we have mastered getting up that hill with Kate bush and by the way if you have suitcases it's impossible. You are met by well we will ignore that matter, up big stairs no lift to room. Dark dingy lack of sockets no bathroom dirt everywhere. The list goes on and on and on. The place was so skank...

We've visited many hostels during our journey in Ireland, unfortunately Sheila's was by far the worst. And not even the cheapest. Our room got changed last minute to a room that probably was rejected. On opening the door it was filled with flies and musquito's. Room was just dirty, linen not washed, bed should be thrown out. Only go here...

Currently laying in one of the beds in a 6 bed mixed dorm. It's so cold I'm wearing 2 sweaters....I don't think this hostel actually has any heating. And the bathrooms are beyond gross and my bed is definitely not clean. This was not the best decision I ever made. Staff is lovely though

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.
