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 ( 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. View House Rules

    Great location and easiness of access. Very good value for money. The room was clean but there was a item left behind. The walls were a bit noisy and there was no warm water on the 2nd morning.

    Pros - good location, free breakfast, female bathrooms were okay Cons - male bathrooms were in a state (blood on doors), the vibe was a bit too much like a homeless shelter/crack den, squeaky bunk beds, the whole building felt a little bit run down

    I’ve been in Ireland for 5 weeks. This is the worst hostel I’ve stayed at. That’s not to say it’s bad. There are just plenty of better options.

    I wouldn’t even give this hostel the rating it is posting of 3.4 the ONLY good thing about this hostel was that it was in a relatively decent location as in it was in walking distance to many locations. It was dirty. As in we wouldn’t even put our feet on the ground in our private en-suite room in our socks to get dressed, the wall was coming apart, and there was actual black mold…in multiple locations. The glowing green light in the evening made it harder to sleep than the noise outside.

    This was by far the most disgusting room we have ever slept in and that includes all of South America. The carpet was filthy with a strong smell of vomit and faeces dominant. We were forced to spend one night there but cancelled the other three immediately. The water was cold and the beds totally different from the site photograph. This appeared to us to have morphed into a homeless shelter and a poor one at that. Didn’t risk the breakfast left straight away for alternative accommodation.

    The worst hostel in Dublin. Just the smell of s*** everywhere is disgusting. I am not exaggerating in anything I will write here, the Kinlay hostel should be closed for the condition it is in, dirty, old and without any maintenance. In the room I stayed in you couldn't breathe the humidity and the smell of shit permeated the room, the bathrooms were full of black mould. I don't know what these people do with the money they receive but it is clear that they don't invest it in their hostel.
