“Place needs attention!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Yes, it is close to everything but the accommodation was not very good. The basin in the bathroom was so small that when the hot water came on it splashed all over. We had our meals and drinks at O'Shea's just up the street and that made our time in that neighbourhood bearable. If you are a young backpacker on a budget, perhaps this is for you. I should have read tripadvisor before we booked :-(

My Place is not far off being a dump.
Good points -- location is very convenient, thats what you are paying for.
Clean, reasonably comfy bed and room.
Not so good.-- Scruffy rooms. Cell like attic room with no window, just a restricted opening velox and no easy escape route if there was a fire. Would probably have died if a fire broke out at night.
Shower was the worst I have ever used, useless.
No wardrobe or any form of storage. No chairs. No lighting other than one main room light.
TV tiny and remote broken.
Bathroom worn and tatty.
Staff indifferent and uninterested.
Reception and communal areas small and unwelcoming.

This is really a hostel but we paid hotel prices.
Oh for a Premier Inn in Dublin!
Most definitely won't be returning here. Not even cheap and cheerful.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

I got a spacious room recently decorated in stylish colours for a good price. The location is excellent, in a street with many hotels a few minutes away from O'Connell Street, and the service is also great.

Two small minuses: There is no WiFi in the room (but you can get it downstairs) and you hear a lot through the thin walls.

I took a bus from the airport and it stopped right infront of the hotel.
I don't expect much when i read most of the negative comments. But to my surprise, the moment i checked-in, the front staff was very friendly and efficient. I booked two rooms which was far separated. But that doesn't matter much.
I love the bed.It was so comfortable till i don't feel like getting up the next morning. I agree that the wall is too thin that you can hear sounds from other room. But i still get a good sleep then. Room amenities are basic.
My Place is situated in the central of Dublin where everything is within reach. Free WiFi is available at the lobby area only. Would recommend for short stay on a limited budget.

First off, fantastic location! Close to the centre, only about 10 minutes to Temple Bar and 5 minutes from O'Connell Street....also right next to the Airport Shuttle Bus. Clean and well serviced, friendly staff, and a good value breakfast. However, the room was snug, the windows were only single-glazed so it was really noisy at night (maybe ask for a room at the back of the property if possible), and the shower (inexplicably) dripped throughout the night.
Good value, really comfy bed, fantastic staff and a great location. If you're not fussy, this does the trick - perfect for a long weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the property!

After seeing all those negative comments, I actually don't expect too much. But it is not that bad as a result. It has everything you need for sleep. The room is very old obviously but we can still use it. Except the room is very hot in June, the toilet door is broken, and the window cannot be closed. And, there is a mosquito waiting for us when we enter the room. Cool enough!
