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

    Check in, location, facilities, cleanliness were fine; did not get a response to a request for a minor maintenance need in the room. Served my purpose for a reasonable place to stay for a night in central Dublin. As an older traveler, I would opt for a quieter location for a longer stay.

    Kinlay was alright when compared to other hostels I have stayed in. At the time I was there, there was unfortunately no hot water, and the wifi did not reach my room on the second floor which sucked. I really liked the chill environment of the hostel, and one staff member was super friendly! One thing that was a pain was the fact that at 10am (checkout time) I had to lug around my suitcase with me until my bus in the late afternoon as the hostel wouldn’t let me keep it there.

    In my first day the staff put me in a wrong bedroom, so when was 5 A.M i had to wake up to change of room. It was a mistake of the staff and after this i went to the right bedroom and my others dayshas been OK. There are many students living in the hostel, for this difficult to sleep because has movement all nigth long and many of them came back drunk to the hostel annoying the other guests and messing the bedroom. The bathroom in the most of time was dirty because the movement is intensive.

    Stayed in a room with 23 other people & one came in sloppy drunk, passed out, & then peed all over our stuff with his d!c5 completely out. Tried to tell the staff what happened and they looked at me and said “what do you want me to do about it” wouldn’t even let us use their washer for free. I understand things happen but the hostel staff made us feel completely uncomfortable and unsafe after this incident. So rude & condescending.

    Location is the only good point here because the place is very old, cold, full of dust, dirty toilets and at the shower you had to push the bottom every 30 seconds to keep the water running.

    Firstly I try to cancel or rebook my booking due the corona v tua and the hostel just didn’t give me any support, just said “we can’t refund you” sorry but was been the worst holidays of my life because they didn’t be sensible to make my journey better. I arrived to the hostel 10 min outside try to understand how to go inside, two people sit on the desk just after 10 min one of them come to open the door arrogant! Not professional receptionist! Pour service for £70 per night! And much more!!

    At about 11pm a man in our hostel room got nude and peed on himself and our belongings in the trundles below as he was so drunk in bed. We went to tell the front desk and the man working said “what do you want me to do about it?” He eventually came up and tried to wake the man up, who did not. The police arrived, let the man stay and left. All of this happened even thought we were told the man would be removed from the hostel. We then had to spend two more nights sleeping in the same room as him
