Although the rooms are pretty basic, but cost considered you get what you pay for.
The front desk staff were incredibly friendly. Hotel is bang in the middle of town, easy access to everything. Would without a doubt stay here again.
It was the worst hotel room that we have ever had the misfortune to stay in. It was room 104 in the basement. The smell of dampness was obvious before we even went down the stairs. In the room the paint was flaking off the wall. The ceiling in the en-suite was covered in a black growth. The cold water tap did not work. The hotel were unable to provide us with another room. We slept badly and did not even have a shower in the morning. How could such a room pass a health inspection?
All I was looking for was a bed and a roof and I got what I wanted the staff were very nice and helpful they let me keep my bags in the storage room gave directions and were always friendly. The room itself was right at the top of a huge set of stairs which tired us out after a long day. The room was very basic but everything was clean so I don't have any complaints. I would stay again if I needed a cheap night place to stay in Dublin.

We stayed here before going to a rock concert in Croke Park. The hotel is very old and in bad need of refurbishment. In our friends room the Windows was broken and had packaging from a universal adapter taped over the hole, which did give us a laugh. When you walked around the room the wardrobe shook a little. There was a musty smell in the room and the window wouldn't stay open unless you wedged something underneath, which probably explains the musty smell. The bed wasn't great in the comfort stakes, my wife reckoned she could feel every spring. I didn't find it that bad though. Otherwise I have to say that though the rooom and everything in it looked run down, the bed and towels supplied were clean which for a one night stay is the most important thing especially when you wont be hanging out there. Otherwise the hotel is part of a Hostel and the reception and other areas fit more into that category. Staff were polite and friendly, and I thought very brave to ask if everything was ok at check out. I wasn't fussy considering we paid €50 for a double room in the middle of Dublin, but for anyone who may have paid around €100 or more, I think they may have had a few things to say. Overall, its grand for around €50, but charging any more is a bit cheeky.
