I liked nothing about this hostel located in Dublin's popular Northside. I found the Public Areas, Breakfast Room and my Room in a run down dirty state. Room and corridor reeked of cooking. The whole place is crying out for a good clean/touch-up Potential guests should be wary of reviews submitted by young or young at heart guests. Their standards...

Very pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the room was, and lovely decoration/furnishing thoughout the hotel. Good wifi, and also plenty of space available in the reception areas for those who wanted to work/read outside of the rooms. Secure parking, and staff kindly let us keep the car in the garage for a couple of hours during the day before we...

We stayed here three nights, and were pretty pleased with most aspects of our stay. The staff were absolutely fantastic - so friendly and helpful, and always available. Breakfast was also stellar - an excellent variety of cooked and continental options, with a range of drinks and spreads. The location is great - far enough from the main drag that...

We stayed for 3 nights here at the Townhouse Hotel. We wanted to change our booking dates a few days prior to arriving and tried calling the hotel. The phone number provided on their website and booking confirmations did not work. We tried emailing them and there was no reply. Rooms itself were moderately clean. Bathrooms were moderate to poor...

You can't really beat the location for convenience and, depending on the Celtic pub round the corner, quietness. Stayed here twice recently: first time for an overnighter before travelling on and second time for a week long stay in Dublin city. There is a good vibe in this hotel because of the sharing of facilities with the hostellers / backpackers....

We found this hotel in the Rick Steve's travel book, we always know that we can trust his judgement. We were happy with the price and the hotel. It is next to/connected to a travel/hostel type of hotel. It was in a very convenient area, around the corner from the bus station, walking distance to Temple Bar, Trinity College, Millenium...

Great central location, the intermingling of young packpackers with older hotel type guests at breakfast is refreshing. Only minor critism is that I wish we had been offered inclusive B & B.

We stayed there for 1 night. Very convenient location...close to the city center. Great rooms and comfortable beds. Only negative is that they charge a very steep price for breakfast. Other than that a great stay. Definitely recommended

We stayed here in September & were very happy with the accomodation. We were three friends & shared a triple room & the private parking was great, as was the breakfast. We used the luas to get to Kilmanham for a concert & then two of us took the train to Belfast. This was the perfect spot & while not...

This is a traditional hotel/B&B 10 min walk to Temple Bar. Walking distance to major attractions. The full Irish breakfast was fabulous. Rooms were nice and clean and the bathroom was decorated with some nice tiles. Free wifi is only accessible in a wifi lounge and sometimes in your room depending how far your room is from the lounge.
