This place is a poop hole and there's no denying it. However it's comparatively cheep for Dublin and you are close to stuff. You just need to be ready to accept that it looks a lot like a condemned building from the inside. Most rooms don't have a loo so it does mean popping out and either up or down...

2 of us decided to come for a look around Dublin, and decided to book somewhere cheap and basic as we knew all we needed was a place to crash. The room (108) was essentially a thin corridoor with 2 singles, a sink and shower crammed in. This wasn't really a concern, until we came back later and could literally...

Surprised this place can pass any health and safety checks. It is shabby and in a poor state of repair but it's the dodgy wiring and broken window locks that I find concerning. We stayed on a hen night and just used the room to get changed and somewhere to collapse after a fab night out in Dublin. The whole...

I felt compelled to write a review as it has so many bad ones. You do get what you pay for here but I found it fine. The place is basic but it's just what you need, who wants to spend their entire trip in the hotel anyway. It is in an ideal location, I personally found the staff lovely....

Very disappointed with this hotel. I found the staff very rude. Secondly, I was not satisfied with the cleanliness of the hotel. I noticed a blood stain on the bed sheets. I also noticed some toilet tissue in-between the window glass and window sill as there was a gap between both allowing cold air to enter - the toilet tissue...

So me and a friend booked this for a 2 night stay in Dublin. At first as we walked in, the place smelt of damp and old cigarette smoke. The staff on the reception were vague and appeared slight uninterested in us. We went up to our room, number 116, slightly shocked and had to laugh. Our room was skinny...

I would prefer to pay slightly more and stay at somewhere else, the area feels very unsafe. It's not value for money and the female idiot on the reception needs to learn manners and how to treat customers. My option is hit skip on this and look elsewhere.

Basic but clean. Stayed for the marathon weekend so most places were fully booked and increase prices. Great location close to all amenities. Didn't have breakfast so can not comment but would be nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room.

A kip in its finest class,very small and very old rooms but clean. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a shower and toilet outside as booked. The toilets on this floor were out of use and there were none on the 2nd so we had to go to the 1st floor.(so handy in the middle of the...
