Very good
Delighted with our stay

Very welcoming and pleasant staff. Private room with shower not always hot, but ideal location in the center of Dublin. In the kitchen, it is a pity that some travelers leave their dishes lying around and are not clean ...

Very good
Very friendly hostel with nice meetings. Access to shower and toilet easily. Difficult sleep in the dormitories but the nights become more flexible with habit.

Very warm hostel. Shower and toilet with easy access. Comfortable dorms with lockers (useful to take a cadena), the only constraint is the noise of other travelers and the door that clips.

Common room closed from 11pm to 7:30 am

I have stayed at this hostel before and I was happy. This time though, a lot less. - I would have liked to have access to the common room and the kitchen by getting up at 6 am, but from 11pm to 7:30 am, these two rooms are closed. I fully understand that there are specific schedules for the breakfast service but I still expected to have a quiet coffee ... - I slept about 3 hours of the night (although it was during the week) because of groups that were partying in the dormitory. Since the common room is closed, people find themselves in the dormitories, to the detriment of those who want to sleep ...

Kinlay hostel very well placed BUT serious problem with regard to the rooms (little ventilation, very smelly room!)

Home correct, perfect location in the city center but disenchantment fast and violent when discovering the room: a tiny room under the eaves where we were crowded at 6 with a poor little window for ventilation. We spent three nights in the hostel and the first was almost unbearable in terms of smell (smell of feet !!). And even with the small window open we had this bad smell throughout the stay! I wanted to discover the hostels to my little brother starting with this one .. very bad choice!
