After reading the reviews about this place I was incredibly worried...and I was right! It is the WORST place we've ever stayed. We were in room 125 that had broken windows, mouldy shower and the oldest quilt you've ever seen, I think it may of come off the bloody titanic! When we arrived we were told we couldn't talk to...

This place has a lot of negative reviews and I get why, the furniture is sub standard, the bathroom damp, the traffic noisy, the rooms small and badly patched up BUT the place does a good breakfast, is right in the city centre, is very cheap (you get what you pay for in cities where high prices are to be...

Breakfast rubbish . Bedding not clean. Only allowed one pillow . Have visited Dublin at least 10 times and this was by far...

I stayed here with colleagues for 3 nights for a conference at Trinity, so just wanted something cheap to come back to at the end of each night that was relatively close to the Uni. If we had spent ANY free time in the place it would have been too much- we left around 8-9am and were back after midnight...

I took my friend here for her birthday and it absolutely ruined it. We turned up and our room wasn't ready and they expected us to leave our bags just behind the front door where any of the hotel guests could access them. Upon entering the lady at the desk was rude and didn't even walk over to greet us....

I was so disappointed in the condition of this "B&B"! The closest toilet was two floors away, the mattress was in rough shape, our window was broken and wouldn't close so we had traffic noise all night. The carpet on the stairs is worn and smelly. The parking was a ten minute walk away and wasn't free. The city was...
