Good party hostel. Wasn't super clean and facilities were a bit run down. Staff was nice. There was plenty of room to hang out and meet people. Lots of tables and hammocks everywhere!

Great hostel. Very clean, friendly staff, good location. The hostel definitely felt like a "resort" hostel because of the nice pool and clean facilities. The bar area was great as well. Not too loud, but a nice place to hang out with a friend.

I thought this hostel was great. I was by myself and it was fairly dead while I was there, due to the low season, however the staff were so nice and made an effort to talk to me the whole time. I saw the two owners a lot as well and they were very welcoming and chatty. Thanks for the great stay guys!! Este, I am still working on the book but so far it is good!!

Reat hostel, lots of charachter, very clean. I stayed here quite a well and got very comfortable here. This hostel I a bit harder to meet people as there are a lot of long term stays, however after a few days it was good. Other than that great hostel, cozy feel, good pub crawl, nice staff.

Kinlay House Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

This was a good hostel appearancewise and a good location. However, being a backpacker it is very hard to meet people when hostels allow big groups to stay. There were probably about 3 groups of at least 10 people in the kitchen/common room at once, i am assuming these are students traveling around. Anyway the large groups make it not very backpacker friendly for meeting people.

This was a nice hostel, a lot like a hotel though. There were plenty of familys staying here. I still had a good time, the place is very new and clean. They do have a bar and a common room so makes it easier to meet people.

Very nice hostel. Felt more like a hotel. As for fun, I didnt ever sit in the common areas or anything as I was there for a very short period of time so I am not sure about the other factors.

This hostel was very nice appearance wise. It was very clean and nice rooms and beds. However, there wasn't really a common room so we did not meet anyone there! It lacked the fun welcoming friendly atmosphere that good hostels have!! If you are looking for a quiet stay this hostel would be nice for you.

Was there at the wrong time of the year. The hostel was dead, so did not meet anyone, I am sure it would be a lot better in the high season. However found the hostel not very homey, was also hard to find.
