The rooms were nice, ok for a hostel, but the heating went off and on so the rooms were freezing-not very nice. No elevator, six flights of stairs. It says breakfast... but it's tea, and toast with jam or butter.

Taylor Made For The International BackPackers NeedPosted Sep 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Should you be a first time visitor to Dublin's fair city, with a desire for centrality coupled with economic concerns, look no further then the Kinlay House experience. You can scarely choose a better budget option. COnvivial & convenient in the extreme. A sound choice.

Great locationPosted Sep 13, 2013
Right next to temple bar area and Christchurch cathedral. An excellent location for walking the city. Staff was very helpful. Fresh linen on bed. Towels and lockers for 2 euros each/daily. The rooms were old and shabby, needed new flooring and fresh paint. Bathrooms were ok. It was noisy at night bc of location. Bring earplugs. Overall I would say good place for a few nights, for the price.

Simple but expectedPosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location is pretty close to bars and restaurants, as well as bus stops. Dublin is very walkable and the Kinlay House puts you in a good place to access most parts of the city. It was simple but clean and the service was friendly and helpful. The staff offered lockers to store our luggage in advance of checking in (though for a small fee) and booked our airport shuttle. The free breakfast was mediocre at best and the wifi was iffy in the rooms, but what can you expect? I would still recommend this place for those traveling on a budget. But beware, it will sell out for Saturday nights!

Nice place in the centre,perfect for cheap weekendPosted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location of Kinlay's is close to Dublin's castle and Christchurch cathedral, so very central. Very quiet nights.Breakfast was OK.We were a group of 4 youngish people and got a 4 beds room and it was clean and comfortable.reception staff was friendly and effective. The only little negative would be the bathroom and toilets which are not plentiful and not super modern or comfortable, but still OK for a hostel.I would definitely come back.

There are better hostels in DublinPosted Jul 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
I can't believe this hostel won an award. Pros: the common areas were clean and the staff was friendly. Unfortunately, my room (shared 4-bed) was small and airless. It had not been cleaned for a long time, and my "roommates" had trashed the place. There was luggage and clothing all over. There were no individual lockers or bins - an easy thing that might have contributed to the room being cleaner. I had to store my suitcase in a locker located in a room off an alleyway open to the public, as there was no room at all for my suitcase in the room (at an additional 2 euro per day - and the lock was one that could easily be picked). The bathroom was unisex, the showers were push-button and WAY too hot - I got scalded. There was also no place for me to hang my clothing where they would not get wet, so I had to dress in the unisex common area when my shower was finished. Next time, I'll choose one of my tried-and-true Dublin hostels.

Great hostelPosted Jun 26, 2013
This is a great hostel, in the perfect spot close to temple bar and walking distance from lots of attractions while also being very close to the hop on and off bus tour. To top it off the staff are great! The rooms and facilities are clean and well kept and if you want advice on where is good for food or entertainment the staff are happy to help. We really enjoyed our stay and have no complaints!

Good value for moneyPosted May 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
I enjoyed my time in Dublin including staying at Kinlay House hostel. I felt it was good value for money, clean and centrally located. Obviously it was not luxurious but I was interested in seeing as much of Dublin as possible and where I stayed only needed a clean bed to sleep in and somewhere to shower.
