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.

    Very Good

    17 Apr 2022
    Super friendly staff and a great location (close to Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Temple Bar). I stayed in an all-female ensuite and the room was small and crowded. The bathrooms had no soap and flooded because of the water from the shower. There's a nice area downstairs with a TV and couches to relax. The hostel has luggage storage for 3 euro a day, and you can buy some necessitates (soap, shampoo, water, etc.) from reception. If you're on a budget, this works for a short stay.

    Good

    In general I would say that this is overpriced for the product. I have never stayed in any hostel with high expectations for items such as facilities as you're paying for somewhere to stay only. The cleanliness was poor; below what I would have expected that's for sure. Beds were un-maid, looked like there was still someone staying in my assigned area. Being busy shouldn't be an excuse as weekends should be considered busy and more staff should be available to accommodate.....6.6/10 is generous.

    Very bad hostel, restrooms were a mess and there was no ambient in general. Besides that, it’s good that they offer free breakfast. But I don’t recommend it at all.

    This place is a filthy mess, with an unpleasant atmosphereW I recommend everyone to not book here, because it will spoil your Dublin experience. My Airpods got stolen here, and the staff didn’t care.
