  • Kinlay is a huge hostel, so they want money for everything - plug adapters, lockers, towels etc. We could leave our bags at the hostel after checkout because of the lockers service, which is very nice, but we also would like to have free access to it during our stay. Kitchen and common rooms are super crowded during breakfast time. Other guests can be very noisy during the night and mainly during the early morning - be prepared. Overall, it was a good stay but I prefer to stay at smaller hostels

  • This place is really good. Very near from everything! Breakfast was nice. I like the room that I had, with my own bathroom, I dont know if all rooms have the same. The only think that I dont really like was the bed, very small and uncomfortable, but it depends on the people. The staff was really nice and thoughtful.

  • Bright side: Very convenient position, large kitchen and common space, clean and confortable Downside: no lockers in rooms, just at the reception for 2€ per day, no mixer tap, water is too hot or too cold and you need to keep the botton pressed for all the time otherwise the flow stops.

  • My fiancé and I were very impressed with the openness and cleanliness of our 10 bed room. The breakfast is decent and to leave your luggage in their storage room is very secure. The only complaint we have is very uncomfortable mattresses and pillows. Everything else was great! The location is perfect.

  • Very friendly staff and always helpful. 4 person ensuite room was really a tight squeeze but not too bad overall.

  • I enjoyed my stay in this hostel. The location is very good. The common area is just great. Big, full of couches, nice atmosphere. Staff was great, free breakfast always appreciated. The bathroom in our room could have used some more cleaning.
