Lonely Planet review
Small (32-bed) but stylish, this relatively new hostel is set on a busy street just 200m east of the train station and 15-minutes' walk from the city centre. Facilities are good, with a well-equipped modern kitchen, comfy common rooms and bike storage, though the bedrooms are basic.
Our independent authors have visited Oscar's Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Cork City.
