  • The hallway smelled like a gymbag full of unwashed sweaty clothes and shoes that had been left to ferment for a week. It really was an experience in how bad it was. They need to just remove the carpets and burn them or call an exorcist!

  • Kinlay House was not bad. The service was good. The single room I was in was cramped.. but I guess they all are these days. There should have been hand soap in the en-suite and the fire alarm was always going off like they were testing it. It was irritating because it was hard to tell if it was a real fire or just a test. The wifi in my room was pretty weak. It was better than the previous hostel I stayed at in Dublin. The desk staff were good and my bed was comfy enough.

  • The sheets were clean and close to downtown, if that's all you need. Otherwise, water in the showers was freezing the whole time and staff just kept saying that they were aware of the problem, not fixing it and it never got fixed. The wifi is unbelievably terrible there might as well be none, it's so bad. The breakfast is pathetic and they ran out of milk a lot and there was only toast or cereal. All toilet seats in girls bathroom were broken. Exit signs in the room were so bright.

  • A lot of noise during the night. The staff forbid us to bring our own drinks to our room.
