The old commom room was great for groups and has been converted into a bedroom. Rather crowded during meals.


Wi-Fi is atrocious. Sort out the Wi-Fi!


Lovely place, cool vibe...friendly staff and lots of great music playing.


Did the job but wasn't a fun place.


Fairly good hostel and reasonably priced for Dublin. Super comfortable bed for a hostel. Disappointing not to have lockers in the rooms (even bring-your-own-padlock ones). Also not a fan of the button-press showers, single square toilet paper dispensers, and lack of enough power points in the room.


Not the nicest hostel but great location.


I stayed at Kinlay House Dublin for 3 nights. Was in a dorm of 14. Very clean, tidy, Well done.


Hard to get staff to help. General areas not very nice and it's older.


Too far to the woman's washroom. on't like sharing a bathroom with men.D


No wifi everywhere in the building or cutting. Beds clean.


Be forewarned that there is no lift! If you have a wheeled suitcase, this means you'll be dragging it up at least 1-2 flights of stairs. Not very fun when you've just arrived tired from traveling.
