“Do not stay here!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Having just spent one night in this guest house I would avoid it at all costs,the room smelt musty, the wallpaper was falling off the walls and the bathroom was mouldy. We had to go out and buy 2 towels as the ones provided were tiny and dirty, the staff were very unfriendly too...I cant comment on the breakfast as we didn't want to risk it!!

I booked this quite last minute with no idea what i was letting myself in for (should have read trip advisor first of course- but had an emergency accommodation situation!)

The room was tiny (looked like a prison cell), the bed was vile (was dying to pull covers back and look under the sheets but was too scared!).

The matress looked like it had a 50 stone man sleeping in it for 5 years beforehand, Dipped in the middle. The skinniest pillow i've ever seen.

There were 2 windows in the room, both with metals shutters on the outside (lovely view!!!) and the windows themselves were bad, the locking handles didn't work properly (swung round) and there was a massive draught all night!

The shower room (on a different level) was ok, tiny and vaguely clean. The smallest towel i've ever seen (pink bleach stained).

Left in the morning before breakfast as i had a 4 hour journey to make and was worried about what I might have eaten!!

Yes, OK it was €35 a night but I paid €45 prevously for something just as budget but in much better condition accross the road!

Worse than any hostel i've stayed in!

Don't sniff when you pull the duvet up! The whole room smelt musty.

They could do with investing a couple of hundred quid per room just to get it to a reasonable budget standard (new bed!!)

I don't understand the bad reviews. I can say that I was really happy with the experience I had in that place. The couple who are in charge are very friendly. Everything is very basic but what can people expect for such a cheap price? I would definitely recommand it if you travel on a low budget and don't expect to have a jacuzzi in your room for 30 €/night.

This guesthouse should be avoided at all costs!

firstly- overprice 60pp per night - prices were put up because of take that.
They had no record of our booking even though I had a confirmation sheet.
First they were going to send us elsewhere which would be impossible to find because dublin was booked out for take that.
Then they cancelled other guests for us to stay there and the staff thought this was hilarious as I was panicking at the thoughts of having nowhere to stay- very insensitive.
booked a guesthouse in dublin through this website and it was a disgrace. It was disgraceful.
The room was a disgrace- the shower wasn't working properly as it was scalding hot water and the temperature could not be changed because the dial was missing. False advertising!.

The kettle had no top on it so it was not possible to make a cup of tea and one of the sockets were not working.False advertising and lack of hospitality!.

I'm very unhappy because they they blamed the third party website and everyone else for the lack of record of the stay which is unacceptable.


A horrifying experience and this property should be avoided!

Been to a few different hotels,guest houses in Dublin .
This had to be the worst ever.....place wasn,t the cleanest..we were suppled with 2 towels,no soap,headboard hanging off bed & holes in the floorboards under the worn out carpets.
The second day we came back to find our room had been tidied ,one dirty towel left for 2 people to use.
Overall the place was pretty run down,Breakfast was fine as long as you can eat cereal with no milk....As the saying goes you get what you pay for...not much

Like at least one other traveler this place cancelled me less than 48 hours before I was to fly from Los Angeles. They did not rebook me at another property, and So I would suggest being very careful If you choose to book with them! As it turned out I was able to book another guesthouse which was excellent, and so maybe I should thank Lyndon-what do you think?

How can this even get 2 Stars
The description and pictures form the Website just mislead customers. This B&B is awful and the general qualities of furnishing in the rooms are very poor. We booked an en-suite Double room and thats not what we got as you can see from the pics it is a very bad B & B.
My advise dont book it the place is disgusting and damp and nothing like the photos on the website

I hope my review will help others to avoid the bad experience as
