Recently visited here for a long weekend trip to Dublin, both aged mid 20s. We arrived here at 11am knowing that check in wasnt until 3pm. They took our number so they could call us when our room was ready. (This happened before 2pm) Our room was lovely! Comfy bed, big window letting in a lot of day light. View... More

I have stayed in many hotels and this place is not really a hotel in my option but a hostel. On arrived we were placed down below in the basement/dungeon. There was not appealing about it at all. The first thing to great you is a strong stench of a smell. The bathroom is something out of the Flintstones. I... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very conveniently close to the city centre, only a short walk away. Room was clean, but bathroom needs refurbishment. Can be quite noisy at night as train passes close by. Breakfast very basic but filling.

Very good night sleep, welcoming staff, basic but substantial breakfast, clean room. Not too far to get to all the sights and not too far from the station. We would have been happy to pay for a cooked breakfast if this was on offer.

Our room was small but clean and clearly recently refurbished. The staff were polite and friendly and helpful when we had questions. Two drawbacks - we did not realise you needed to book parking and had to go to the nearby carpark. If you end up doing this you can get half price parking if you say you're staying at... More
