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 Georges Street as well as the renowned nightlife havens of Camden Street and Harcourt Street.

You will also be pleased to hear that you wont have to drag your luggage all around Dublin, as it will only cost you 12euro 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 ( this closes at 11pm), 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.

    My apologies to whoever found my dried-up contact lenses that I left on the window in 114. Was in top bunk and nearly asleep and meant to bin them the following morning. Good solid mattresses in both beds I was in.Plenty hot water.Felt totally safe. Staff were all nice when I was nice! Kitchen&fridges a bit messy but I think it’s the guests that cause those issues; what is it with humans who just don’t give a sh@t?? Price fluctuations were annoying but all good otherwise. I

    Great location, next to everything you'd want. But, the property, common area, and atmosphere were not the best.

    The first moment we stepped in, we saw a person that looked shady and f. up, with eyebags of 10cm, approaching us strangely. Well fine, but outside the hostel in the street there where heroin needles, so i guess this guy was into that stuff. In general, the vibe is like that, with people living in the hostel for weeks due to Dublin it's housing crisis. It's not a hostel to experience a good vibe for backpacking. The location is great though, it's cheap. Breakfast sucked with no paid options.

    Booked this for my niece and nephew who were in Dublin for a night. They arrived and despite me booking a twin for them, they were told there was a booking error and a single had been booked. They were then informed that they would need to pay for that room in cash, despite the fact they had already pre-authorized my card for the original room. Felt very dodgy!!

    This was the worst hostel that I have ever stayed in. The room was cold, most of the facilities were dirty, the staff was rude, the police came in the middle of the night, the fire alarm went on from 7am to 12. It was never possible to talk to the manager. My boyfriend and I left one night earlier. When we left we had to wait for 5 min in the lobby and we saw 4 other groups also leaving earlier because their stay was equally horrible. So please dont waste your money on this hostel !!!
