Booked two rooms months in advance for five people, a double and quad and upon arrival was told that they had already been booked and that we'd be given two double rooms. We were walked to our rooms and greeted with two cupboard sized rooms both containing a child's bunk bed. A few minutes later the manager returned with an... More

We stayed here last February for Valentines and found this hotel really good value for money. There was one worry - shared bathroom, but this wasn't a problem. If I had to be honest - the only problem I would say was that the were having some redevelopement work done that started at 8am in the morning - no lie... More

My friend and I stayed here for 5 days, it was good enough to have a clean bed and warm place. The only thing that we don't like it was the bathrooms were too far if you are in the first floor. But the guys at the reception were very nice and kind. Well, also the breakfast was a little... More

I have stayed in a lot of places in my life, and none were ever as bad as this. If you have any other option, really ANY other option, do NOT stay here. I was crying when I saw where I was going to have to sleep that night. The room was tiny and like a prison cell. It was... More

It was perfect for us. Three friends on a short holiday. Near the city centre and well communicated. The staff was so nice, room quite small but enough for us three, and although the bathroom was shared it was clean all day. Wifi in the rooms. Perfect for groups of friends.

Stayed there 2 years ago, (april 2012) and it didn't feel right. The room was small, very noisy as it was near an air con exterior device, it was freezing during the day, but at night it was heated, the toilet was shared (so you get out of your room, walk the corridor, and then enter the toilet), and the...

Stayed here for one night. Service was good, the guy that checked us in was quite friendly. It's a 4min walk to o Connells street and a short walk to the main bus and train station in Dublin (Connolly) decor is a bit dated but rooms and bathroom seem clean throughout the day. Overall if your looking for a cheap... More

I booked a double room two months in advance and upon arrival was greeted by two guys who behaved really unprofessionally and said, without apologizing, that although we'd booked a double room they only have a twin room (bunk bed) for us. Seriously? No refund, no explanation. The walls were paper thin, people walking and talking in the hallways or... More

I booked here because I needed somewhere affordable for my brother and I (both mid 20s) to stay with our mother (late 50s) on our stopover in Dublin on our way to a wedding in the North. It wasn't terrible, and I think if it had been just us in our 20s it would have been ok, but I think... More
