    Fabulous

    The fact that it a wee walk away from the National Archives and TCD Library, and the bus to UCD library - screamingly dull but...

    I couldn't see the news on telly (not usually a complaint of mine - mind you I didn't know the full horror of the UK General Election result till about wednesday

    Good

    The location (Shramrocker tours start from here). Some free pasta on one night.

    Beds in one room sank too low when slept in them, in one room. Could have more toilets on first floor.

    Great location in Temple Bar area and on airport bus route, 15-20 min walk from bus station. Friendly and helpful staff and a wii on site.

    No self-lock lockers, but pay lockers only. Bathrooms are collective male/female shared which some people may not like.

    perfect location, very close to Dublin's main attractions :-)

    The hotel room could be cleaner and it can be pretty loud at times.

    The location is pretty good. Breakfast and staff are also nice.

    The rooms are pretty noisy and showers and bathrooms are dirty and outdated.

    Great location close to Temple Bar area.

    Only a trickle of cold water came out of the showers.

    It was just next to Temple Bar: perfect location. The staff were friendly and there is always someone at the door even at night, good security. Clean enough, it is a good choice if you are into hostel-type travels. I've been to Dublin a couple of times more and this is the best hostel I've been in.

    It's close to the city center and temple bar! :) Outside there is a stop of the "City Sightseeing Dublin", which we took and it was very easy for us to see the city's most important attractions!

    I booked this hotel because many people said that the hotel is good in Booked.net wedsite. However, when i arrived in hotel, it was totally difference. The facilities was old and the bed was damage. The shower was out of control. The water was very hot. In addition, there are no role for people to keeping quiet in mid-night and no role for stop drinking after 10pm. At that night, there are many people talking and playing loudly outside my room, it was very very noise. I just sleep less than 2 hours during the night. I booked the 2 bed room. The room was tiny. The price was not a good value. However, the services and facilities also poor. This hotel gave me bad memories. I would not recommend this hotel.

    Kinlay House is well located for the nightlife in Temple Bar and all the tourist attractions are within walking distance. I stayed in a private room which whilst small was perfectly comfortable for my short stay. This is no frills low cost hostel accomadation and in my opinion is good value for money. The staff are helpful and enthusiastic- The building is a character old style building- breakfast is just cereal/ toast and coffee but don't worry there's loads od great restaurants closeby...
