We stayed here for 1 night after arriving in Dublin at about 10pm. The bonus was that it had 24hr reception and wifi in the rooms, the downside our room was directly behind the reception so whenever anyone rang the bell to get inside it was super loud enough in our room as well as the creaky floors. The room... More

The wall in the upstair corridor was molded, there was smell of cicarette smoke in our room, the room was so small that we couldn't keep our two bags open at the same time, the other bed made terrible noise even with a tinyest move, there was a grumpy old man at the reception, whose talk we couldn't understand... Well,... More

Nice double bed, very comfortable, excellent reception staff, very small shower cubicle in room, shared toilet, one for all rooms. No hangars in wardrobe, no luggage space, small sink in room. Breakfast served 0830 but I was leaving early so reception left me cereal, coffee and tea to make my own, which I appreciated. Overall basic but comfortable

this place is in our list of top 5 most horrible places we've stayed. They've put us in the worst room, tiny, right next to the reception and next to the stairs, so very noisy all the time, the walls of the room are so thin, its almost like it's made of paper, you can hear people talking next room,...

This hotel on booking website said reduced from 160 euro to 60 euro ;) this hotel had a Woden permanent sign saying from 50 euro, what a joint scam to make people think they booked a hotel sorted 160 euro standard, our booking breakfast included ,breakfast was from 8 to 11, we entered the returant at 10 and they said...

Maybe we saw the worst of this place. Desperate for a bed coming off a late ferry, we settled for this. Claustrophobic room with a window on a dank alley, filled with a marginal bed. Shared, barely functioning, dirty toilet, wifi intermittently usable only by sitting on the stairs near the front desk. Hole in the hall floor covered with... More

bedclothes were dirty and absolutely rude receptionist (Indian guy with glases) as many men from India and similar countries does not how to treat women, don't understand how somebody rude and awful can work in hotel business. Please try to avoid this guesthouse, as you could see more similar comments like mine.
