Adequate but basic
The staff on reception were all very pleasant and extremely helpful.The location was perfect for us, close to the gig venue we were booked for. It was reasonably priced for Dublin (but not cheap), comfortable and clean. Beds and towels were fine.
The shower room bathroom was overlooked by another building (hotel?) with no curtain on the window. The frosted glass allowed for privacy from the ground floor level but not from the five stories looking down on us. Breakfast choices were pretty limited.
Great place, good people and very helpful!
It's a hip place, the rooms are clean, and the staff were externally helpful in helping me track down my wallet that I had left in a taxi.
Nothing, the place was great. There were some annoying persons staying there, but that's to be expected and it's not the hostel's fault.
Great for the price
Kinlay house is located in a great area, near many of Dublin's main sights. I would definitely stay here again. Never felt unsafe or uncomfortable.
The rooms were a tad cold, as well as the bathroom. The cleanliness of the bathroom was also not the best. Someone had thrown up in the bathroom, and it was left for most of the day.
In the famous Temple Bar district, the friendly Kinlay House is ideally suited for the younger/budget traveller and offers free Wi-Fi and spacious rooms. Bars, cafes, bus stops and restaurants are all close by. Available rooms are Twin and Quad rooms with an ensuite shower room - all beds are bunk beds. Reception is open 24 hours and there are secure lockers and an on-site shop. There is a 42-inch plasma-screen TV in the guest lounge and a self-catering kitchen. The Guinness Storehouse, Dublin Castle and Trinity College are all within easy walking distance.
