Reviewed April 2, 2013

So me and my boyfriend studied abroad in Dublin for a semester and decided to stay at JB's apartment. They put us in a single room and made us pay double, which we found out way too late! The place was in horrible condition and dirty beyond belief! After a month or so , I am not kidding, they took out our bedroom doors without any explanation!! we were three people in the apartment-meaning no more privacey what so ever!! They promised us each a 100 euro compensation, which is absolutely ridiculous and probably even illeagl. after months of arguing and them ignoring and evading us- they gave us 150 together! This place is ridiculous, lack professionality, integrity, or any sort of humanity! They're whole business is to rip off international students who lack knowledge of Irish law or dont have anyone here who can help them out. Whatever you don't-do not stay at this place and support this kind of criminal behavior!~!!!!

The worst place ever to consider staying in - do not go, my experience with this place was dreadful. Read on.

Arrived in Dublin after long ferry and train journey to pre-booked apartment.

On arrival was given a key to the apartment which was a 15 minutes walk with 2 children and suitcases - so not a good start.

On arrival key wouldn't fit? so called the "manager" (A summer placement who lacked experience and authority). He came apologised didn't know what was happening as he couldn't get in, before realising the lock had been changed and he didn't have the key!!

So - to be fair the guy offered another apartment which we had no choice to take. Got to other apartment - not fit for humans, more suited to Dublin Zoo!

Tatty, smelly extremely bare bulb haging from centre of room gives a clue, more like a squalid drug dealers den!

Door cupbaords glass broked, taped over, the bed broke after leaning to open curtains, carpets stained everywhere - get the idea.

Complained, hit the roof and gotr half money back.

The owner or someone of responsibility was nowhere to be seen. Do not stay here it's an awful place.
