I stayed at Kinlay for 3 nights with a couple of girls I was traveling with on holiday from university. The reception staff was FANTASTIC and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was a very positive mix of home and a college dorm/house. The rooms were pretty quiet, and the staff was helpful at all hours of the day. The beds could use some updating, but it is a hostel and a bed is a bed, even if it doesn't look shiny and pretty. The rooms were well heated! The kitchen space was great, as was the free breakfast. It was great having computers to use for free, because I've stayed at other hostels which charge you to use them, even though wifi is free...Kinlay was great. The free walking tour they offered to their guests was fantastic, as was the location in the city. It was about a 5-10 minute walk to get to anything big like Temple Bar, Grafton Street, Trinity College, Jameson Distillery, and Christchurch Cathedral. The MacCoole tour to the Cliffs of Moher was also great, and I'm so glad we followed their recommendation to go on it. You can tell the people there really care about helping people enjoy the city and have a great experience.
