    Really great location, and a friendly staff. Everyone felt very safe, can't complain too much. Free breakfast, even if it was a big skimpy.

    A great place

    The staff were very friendly and the location was perfect. Easy walking distance to Temple bar the best place to be during any night of the week. Only complaint is there are two many stairs if you are needing to get a large suitcase to the top floor. The free breakfast was simple but much appreciated.

    Great location and common room

    We stayed for 3 nights in Kinlay House. The accommodations were basic but clean--two bunk beds and a water-efficient shower. The common room is great--a few computers, free ping-pong, and pool for 1 euro a game. Additional computers in the kitchen room too, which was handy. The location is GREAT--literally right next to Christ Church Cathedral, handy for visiting the major churches, Guinness factory, Dublin Castle, and Temple Bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    A simple but good place in the city center. I would go there again if I visit Dublin.

    Dublin was an incredible city. There was no shortage of fun during our stay. We checked in bright and early (6:30 am) to our hostel, the Kinlay House. From there we wasted no time in finding things to do around the city.

    We started off our day hiting some of the historical sites while we waited on others to arrive. It was a short walk to …

    Because the world is a vampire.. sent to drain. Not really relevant at all but if you started instinctively singing we probably get along famously.

    First day went great! Our flight was long and I don't think either of us slept at all. The flight attendants came around too often and there were at least 5 babies! After we went through customs we changed and tried to hunt down the shuttle bus. It didn’t take us too long to figure out where we needed to be though! We took a double Decker bus …
