I had a great time in this hostel. The owner is a nice person and the other volunteers too. Most of the days I was working in the mornings cleaning the rooms and some days I stayed in the reception in the afternoon. I met nice people and loved the city of Cork. Thank you so much, I will never forget my 1st experience in World Packers!

thanks so kind of you


The overall experience was terrible. The whole system of the reservations was an old notebook, so overbooking was a regular thing and the volunteers' beds were the first to go to the guests and we would have to sleep on the reception floor or on the couch, freezing in the lobby. Also, there were no one else working, only volunteers. There were some guys sleeping in the staff room, but I've never seen them working, only listening to loud music and watching TV. There were people actually living there, whole families with kids. Very dodgy and sad place.
