“Well worth the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

Hotel was 100% worth the money for 5 students staying for two nights.
Pictures of hotel rooms and hotel on website are exactly the same as what they are in reality.
The hotel is only a few streets away from O'Connell street , Connelly station , Busaras and Luas stops.
There are plenty of Irish pubs near the hotel that serve good food for reasonable prices and two supermarkets within a 5 minute walk.
The hotel staff were very helpful

Do not stay here. First, it is smelly, second, the room had stains on the carpet, wall covered with clumps of dirt/dust, the safe didn't work, corners of the room had collected piles of dirt. We had reserved a room through Expedia, first the hotel manager said that Expedia controlled the refund policy, then I called Expedia, they said it was up to the Hotel Manager (Ann) to "release" the refund (so Ann lied) then when I asked he she refused to honor the agreement about canceling our stay, saying she went by the Dublin Expedia office rules, ignoring the printed Expedia agreement that clearly and simply stated if we canceled before checking in, we may need to pay for one night, but that the rest of the reservation could be canceled. It is clearly a hostel not an "elegant" hotel. We had a room that faced the street...very noisy all night, beds were awful. The breakfast was good for 4E.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Good location, rooms were clean enough, stairwells and luggage room not so much. Staff were polite and friendly. We were on the top floor, bit of a mission up the stairs and the en suite was quite small but overall it did the job and the beds were very comfortable.

Booked here for a Beyonce concert in may with two friends. Rooms were cramped, unclean and falling apart. Staff were generally unhelpful and uninterested. Wifi did not work in the rooms, only in one part of the lobby. Location was the only redeeming factor, right in the middle of the town, and a 5 minute from bus depot. Would not recommend this 'hotel' unless as a last resort. Will not be back!!

You get what you pay for here. Basic budget hotel in a capital city. The reception area flatters to deceive a bit as the standard of the hall ways have certainly seen better days.
However I was happy with my allocated room on the top floor and there was no intrusive noises experienced from other guests or from the road below when I stayed.
On the positive side its close to all city centre attractions. The 747 airport bus service stops just outside.
For the money it did the job.

We stayed in the hostel last summer and the price was good and location was great altough i wouldnt go back. There was a tesco carrier bags covering a broken window and the shower area was very unclean looking. Although it was cheap would find more clean hostels around that price.

Conditions
Do not be fooled, this is a hostel for homeless people masquerading as a hotel; drunks, junkies, illegal immigrants – they ARE all guests here. There are conditions present which ought to see the place closed. Non compliant electrical installations, insanitary showers, toilets and wash hand basins, defective ventilation etc. If you dare try to have a shower you will be thwarted, when the hot water eventually arrives it swiftly bids farewell and you’ll be left lathered and unable to rinse. The general theme of this hotel is squalor; it is of Georgian period construction, but stinks of Victorian filth. Choosing to stay at “My Place” is to put your SAFETY at real risk. Choosing to stay at “My Place” is to put your HEALTH at real risk.

Staff
Staff in general are apathetic, some are overtly hostile; an individual deserving of a special mention is Yvonne who is incredibly RUDE, the crude hospitality skills she possesses are but a thin veneer to conceal her very unpleasant personality. During my stay I was aware of complaints being made regarding occurrences of racist abuse, these valid complaints were ignored and the person complaining was treated with derision.

Overall Impression
Some people just cannot be told, if you are one of these people then you should make an exception - this place is best avoided.
