Hostelworld says:

The centrally located Kinlay House Dublin is just a few metres from Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral, offering travellers 'a GREAT bargain', according to one Hostelworld guest. Many of our users cite the downstairs pub as a highlight of their stay here, with one of our visitors saying they 'would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone, especially students, as it is awesome and in close proximity to Temple Bar and other hopping places in Dublin', while another guest said the hostel has 'lots of people to meet but is far enough away [from Temple Bar nightlife] to be quiet at night'.

  • Kinlay House Dublin says

    We like to create a home from home for our guests, which we do by having free food nearly every night, from homemade pizza to BBQs, plus free Internet and Wi-Fi, a PlayStation, DVDs, a 24hr cafe and so on. We've got over 25 years experience as a hostel and we've developed tons for guests to do for fun here, like drinking pints in the beer garden, playing free games and getting involved in our activities, regularly organised by the staff (bingo, twister, etc). We want you to eat, drink and generally make merry with each other! The nearest main attractions are Temple Bar (we're in it), Dublin Castle (a stone's throw away), Christchurch Cathedral (next door) and Guinness Storehouse (a 10-minute stroll away).

    The communal showers were extremely hot, and the toilets dirty. When I told the staff about this they angrily responded that this was normal and that the water would cool down during the day. Great location, not expensive, but dont expect friendly staff or clean bathrooms.
