  • Located very near many tourist attractions (Christchurch, Saint Patrick's, Guinness, Dublinia) a 15 minute walk to the main shopping area and a 5 minute walk to the night life. Great location. Wifi is free. A bit slow. Okay for mobile surfing only. Free breakfast is just toast with jam.

  • This hostel is not very friendly in case of special situations. Our friend missed her bus to her hotel from the city centre of dublin at night and we like to bring her to the hostel to stay in the main hall. She was not permitted to stay in the main hall for a few hours until and has to stay outside in the rain!!!

  • Positive sides: Very helpful receptionists, Big kitchen, Laundry machine and dryer, very good location, near city centre Bad sides: Often closed toilets due to repairs, nearly impossible to find sockets for charging your phone, no board for ironing, expensive dryer for clothes (€5 are you crazy??)

  • Only reason I put average for security was my laptop couldnt fit into the small locker and the large ones were a little awkward to get to. Otherwise we had a great weekend and the receptionist was very helpful.

  • We were only here for one night and arrived late. Fantastic location, staff were good and our dorm was comfortable. Good value for money for Dublin City.

  • The location of the Hostel is perfect! We stayed at a 6- bed dorm, which was really nice because each person has his own single bed which I never experienced in a Hostel before. I liked the breakfast with a very good coffee ;)

  • 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.
