We slept here just for one night. The room was in the last floor, there was no elevator and steep narrow staircase, so it was little bit uncomfortable with the luggage to get in the room. The room was quite small there was washbasin, two chairs and one small table. But it was clean and relatively cheap, although the hotel... More

Really cheap and central but the room are not very clean. Enough for one night when you are only in the room for sleeping. Free wifi. It s close to the bus tour starting point and to the shopping malls. A good Italian restaurant is near by.

Great location, great value for money. The personal service was excellent, we were greeted and given clean towels and a decent and clean room. It was right next to two rooms with nice and private showers/toilets. Our breakfast was brought to our room, and although it was simple, it was nice. The walls were decorated with nice quotes from Irish... More

Great value for money as budget accomodation and unbeatable location-wise. Clean, warm, comfortable. Unfortunately when I arrived I was overcharged, and not given towels initially as advertised and also showers and toilets were on another floor, and although it is small, I couldn't find them for ages because they were up a set of stairs that are hidden behind a...

This Guest House is really central in Dublin, it's warm, clean, comfortable and the hosts are really friendly and helpful. It's basic but good value, we would stay here again. For handy parking - they will tell you to go to Q park it's not on your sat-nav look for Clearys parking its 25 euros for 24 hours, not cheap... More

Perfect location! It's very good value for money and it's clean. The staff were helpful and the airport bus stop Was only 5 minutes away. Only thing I would complain about is you can hear people talking and walking up and down the stairs.

This hotel is ok if you do not have high expectations and you want to stay in the center of Dublin. Position is excellent, 2 minutes walking to O'connell street. The price is ok, I paid 50 euro for a double room (shared bathroom), brakfast included. The bathroom was clean even if it was on a shared basis. I think... More
