I was in Cork in april 2005 and I stayed ta Kinley House. It's comfortable, price is not too high in the center of the city. The staff is very nice and helpful. I really recomend it to every one looking for hostel in Cork.
Unique Quality: It's build on the Shandon hill so the view of the center from the top floor (that I stayed on) is beautiful! There is internet cafe and kitchen for all.
Directions: From St Patrick street go through the bridge to John St. Upper and before Dominick St. turn left up the small stairs and there you will find Bob & Joan's Walk. Now it's just few more steps and there you are!
Well, the hostel itself is fine, there is breakfast in the morning, till 10 I believe, there is a TV room and a kitchen. You can use the internet for a fee there, but its too expensive, on the main road just 200m from the hostel there is a much cheaper place. I found that the hostel was very big and a bit anonymous. But the beds were good....well all that matters, isn't it?
I stayed at this hostel a couple of months ago and had no problems with it. It was clean and roomy and basic, but I those are qualities that I can appreciate. I was afraid that the location would turn out to be too far away from the bus/rail but it wasn’t a problem at all. We took a taxi to the hostel and then had a pleasant walk to the center. They had one of the best features I have ever seen there, too. A taxi phone. You pick up the receiver and it automatically connects you to the taxi company. Ingenious. All in all, I would stay here again.
