2/5 Poor

Disliked: Room comfort
the location is right in the centre of the main nightlife hub. This is great if you are an insomniac but if you like to sleep for for than 30 minutes a night not so good. When the music eventually stopped in the early hours of Monday morning a combination of car alarms, screaming drunk people and police/ambulance sirens, finished any hope of getting more than 2 hours sleep.

Great stay in Dublin!
The stay was pretty great only with a few shortcomings that I’m sure would be fixed for anyone else’s stay. The girls working at the bar are great and it made me feel really safe staying there alone knowing that there was basically an all female staff working…if anyone doesn’t get that it’s because girls normally wouldn’t work in a super sketchy area. I had questions about the WiFi and then was confused and they happily explained. When I dropped my bags off at 10 am they weren’t even open and the girl was SOO nice about taking my bags and even offered to help me bring my bags up 2 flights of stairs. I politely declined but it was still a nice offer! The place is extremely convenient and has live music at nights in the pub. The only downfall was the WiFi was a bit wonky and the tv only had 5 channels. Also, I was unable to shower during my stay Bc the water pressure was really just trickles but I’m sure it would’ve been fixed had I asked about it, however I was extremely exhausted on this leg of my trip. Oh another HUGE plus is that it’s right around the corner from where the Dublin express drops off (literally less than a block) and it’s a 5 min walk from where all the tours pick up. It also was a 10 min walk to the tram you can take to get to the Guinness tour! I actually got room service which I wasn’t expecting during covid times so big + to come back to a clean room after a 13 hour tour

Cheap, clean, no frills hotel room.
It's on top of of a pub. There's no "front desk". We arrived late, as the pub was closing and the guys were cleaning up. I don't know what would have happened if we arrived after they closed since there's no front desk. We didn't have any issues so we didn't require any assistance from the "front desk". The rooms have a separate side entrance so that was no problem. The location is good. It was quiet at night since we were not there on a weekend, but I imagine it can get rather noisy on a weekend night. There also was no wifi. They said they have it, but the signal is so weak that it's not useable. But for the price, it was worth it.

Night life Got Spot
Great location for being in the middle of Temple Bar area clsoe to night life and great bars / restaurants. Very noisy @ nights, hard to sleep, but worth it in my opinion as night noise does not bother me. My wife had a hard time sleeping due to noise.

The property location is amazing but the place doesn't have Air conditioning. The room was extremely hot and is not sound proof, so you can hear all the outside noise (Very hard for sleeping).
