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'.

Property Description

At Kinlay House Dublin, we have prided ourselves for over 25 years on providing the most Irish hospitality, a fantastic location in a beautiful listed building, and helping each of our guests to experience the best that Dublin has to offer. We offer clean, secure and budget accommodation, located in the legendary Temple Bar area, and are situated just minutes from Trinity College, Grafton Street and George’s Street as well as the renowned nightlife havens of Camden Street and Harcourt Street.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that you won’t have to drag your luggage all around Dublin, as it’ll only cost you €12 for a return ticket to get the number 747 bus to us from the airport to our front door!

Every guest can make the most of our free light breakfast including cereals, toast and jams/spreads, big self-catering kitchen, huge chill out room with a pool table, a Netflix enabled TV and plenty of space to relax in groups or in a smaller gathering. Kinlay House backs right onto a traditional Irish pub, where you can often enjoy live music or their large outdoor terrace. We also have tablets for guest use, and of course, free WIFI!

There is a free walking tour which departs from our reception every morning at 10:45! We also provide free city maps, event guides, and if that wasn’t enough, our staff are very knowledgeable, multilingual and can help you find the best events and activities to enjoy whilst you stay with us.

We can offer you different types of accommodation to make the most of travelling solo, in a small gathering or a big group. This includes rooms ranging from 4 to 24 bed dormitories, including one female only dorm, and a selection of private triple, twin/double and single rooms with ensuites or shared facilities.

Please note that anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and can only stay in one of our private ensuites rooms. View House Rules

Overview

Come to Kinlay House in the heart of Dublin: the perfect base for exploring (and partying) in this historic city. For tips on what not to miss, ask our friendly staff at our 24-hour reception: they'll point out the best spots. We'll welcome you with authentic Irish hospitality, and even give you a free breakfast every morning. To get the full Dublin experience, spend an evening in the traditional pub that backs onto our hostel. For a quieter night in, chat or watch Netflix in our chill-out room.

Location

You'll find us in a listed building in the famous Temple Bar neighbourhood: a ten-minute walk from Trinity College and a short hop from the buzz of Grafton Street and Camden Street. The airport's half an hour away by bus, which stops, conveniently, outside our door. Up for a pub crawl? You're in the right place. Our local area is packed with places to eat and drink, see some live music or dance late into the night.

We have female-only dorms too, and private rooms with en-suites – perfect for couples and groups travelling with under-18s.

Thanks to keycard access, 24-hour security and safety deposit boxes, you can be sure your belongings are secure.

    My stay was exemplary the atmosphere chilled and easy going with very obliging and helpful staff none moreso than Ludo at the desk who checked me in on arrival . With the link Kinlay House has to the legendary Isaac's Hostel there are many signs of Kinlay House following suit and becoming one of the very best. You must check it out for yourself and aswell as everything else it has a lovely location just at the top end of temple bar minutes away from all the hustle n bustle & vibrancy of Dub City

    Booked online through website. Upon confirmation the website did not mention anything about a preauthorisation/full payment would be taken on our card. It says they are only taking the booking fee and we would pay the balance by cash or other means when we arrive at the hostel. We were going to pay by cash but was told preauthorisation was created and if we want to cancel it, it would take a couple days for the money to go back to our account. Not happy as we did not ask for or were informed

    Unclean. Cold. Homeless people stole keys and slept there. 2 people made advances on me and didn't stop when i rejected them. Men used womens bathrooms eventhough women didn't use men's. 'Free breakfast' was a piece of toast. Shower was cold and water came out in short bursts. I got woken up in the middle of the night and told 'Hide your stuff- they steal things' because my phone was charging next to my pillow. I spent thw next night in the airport for safety.

    First room was bunk beds not double as booked. Second was still filthy with beer bottles everywhere, dirty sheets and towels on the floor and strong strong musky smell of sweat. We ended up leaving and getting accommodation at a 3 star hotel for the same price. Would not recommend. Do not go here

    I paid a £30 deposit to secure a 4 night stay in the hostel. On the website it said that under their facilities they had parking. When we arrived to check in, the gentleman at reception said there was no parking at their facilities and that we'd have to park somewhere on the road. With parking being so expensive we decided to book into another hostel that did have free parking. However, they booked it as a no show, and took the remaining balance out of my account(£170) even though we didn't stay
