This is a difficult place to rate.... is it a hostel or a hotel? For a hostel it would get a great rating. For a cheap Dublin hotel it gets a good rating from me. Unfortunately TripAdvisor doesn't have a good rating.
Great location. Minutes to the Bus Station & Connolly Station. Ten minute walk or less to Temple Bar, Grafton Street, Henry Street. Even only a 30 minute walk out to Aviva Stadium.
The lobby is great for a hostel, and descent for a hotel. All the staff I encountered were friendly and courteous.
The room was the only basement room (104) and after going down the stairs into the dark and moldy smelling basement I couldn't help but think I have made a terrible, horrible mistake. After finally finding the light switch and getting into the room I was pleasantly surprised by the large and relatively clean room. Average sized hotel room in need of a new carpet. Small sized tv but had a surprising number of channels. Free tea and coffee in room. Semi comfortable bed and descent blankets, linens and towels. A surprisingly clean and new looking bathroom with hot water morning noon and night. Being the only room in the basement noise was not much of an issue. I could hear some noise once in a while from the street and there was one room above so I did hear people one morning.
Overall the place would be a real gem in budget hotels if it had a new carpet and paint job.
For $33 per night for a double or triple room on a Rugby game weekend is unheard of. I have no complaints as you usually get what you pay for. I have stayed in some rotten hostels in Dublin for more. I have vowed to tent on O'Connell Street before reliving some guys smelly socks hanging over me while I sleep. So if your the cheap hotel or hosteling type this place will probably be a good experience for you. If your more into upscale accommodation I would ask for one of their nicer rooms or apartments or there's always the option of paying more at a nicer hotel.
