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.

    The hostel was pretty good. If you are a light sleeper you might not deal well with the noise of all the drunk people in the street in the early hours of the morning but it didn’t really bother me.

    It was about as expected. But the facilities just didn't feel clean. No soap for washing hands, no way to dry hands and the showers upstairs were out of order. Old building so it's expected to not feel real clean but it was just in rough shape and always felt dirty. Would stay again if I had to. It reminded me of a dirty men's college dormitory. Beds were nice though and large lockable (if you have your own lock) bins for bags. Amazing times and events to meet people. Coffee was nasty

    I booked the hostel for the duration of my stay in Dublin due to the great price, but decided after 1 night to change to air bnb due to the shower facilities being poor and the breakfast. the staff is friendly but had issues refunding me for the nights I decided to cancel (I was in a rush and it took the staff over 15min and 2 phone calls). The shower is just a drain in the floor of the bathroom with a small curtain. Also wasnt impressed with the breakfast, instant coffee, cereal and toast C-

    This place was so dirty, I didn't even want to take off my shoes in the room. The room was stuffy and smelled like mildew, I could feel the springs in the bed, the bathroom and shower were one small space so a shower got the whole bathroom wet. I haven't stayed in a lot of hostels, but after staying in hostels in Ireland that were beautiful and clean and felt like B&Bs (check out Hideout Hostel in Dingle - AMAZING), I couldn't believe I paid $90 for private room.
