        Can be noisyWe had a good stay, but it's an old building which you can hear. We changed rooms after one night, because we didn't want to be woken up by the terrible noise from the laundry room again at 7! Also the heating was on at night..dry eyes and mouth. Changing rooms was no problem though and the staff made an effort. Rooms tidy and good beds and shower, great breakfast and a good location with an airport shuttle in front of the hotel. (N.B. Bus can be full on sundays!)

        Quaint budget accommodation this was a great location, and booking last minute you sometimes get surprises - we did in the form of 6 decent flights of stairs to our room on the top floor facing into the back of other buildings . Facilities were clean but the door lock was a little lose so we just ensured we locked out cases each day. Staff were friendly although when our bathroom door locked on us they were not happy - they didn't have keys and it was an honest accident but they busted it open and it was evident it had occurred before. The building is old and There was a dip in the middle of the floor, we stood a case up near the wall and it rolled to the centre of the room, it amused us and didn't really bother us at all. All in all it was great value for money, don't expect glitz and glamour but a clean room, comfy bed and lovely breakfast. I would stay here again

        Excellent hostel close to town”

        walking distance to centre of city, good price, friendly helpful staff.

        apart from the room looking a bit old, although it was clean, there were only positive things to say. the guesthouse is within about 10 minute walk to the city, or 40 minutes to the guinness factory. breakfast was provided which was standard fare. the staff were helpful in arranging a taxi to take me to the airport at 430 in the morning. wifi was available in the lobby. the only other downside was that the tv only received 3 channels, which were all a bit fuzzy.

        Budget stay”

        It's within walking distance to the coach station, and the bus going to the airport stops in front of the guesthouse.
        No lift provided. If you are carrying heavy luggages, you'd better stay on lower floors.

        We have stayed here for 3 nites during our trip in Dublin. It's a nice choice for budget travellers. The room was neat and tidy, and simple breakfast was provided. Also, The staff was quite friendly and helpful. The nearest major attraction is Trinity College which takes about 20 minutes to walk to. It's a quite safe area if you need to come back late.

        Hôtel très sympa, adresse à retenir !”

        Emplacement / Petits déjeuners / Calme

        Nous avons passé 4 jours à Dublin et nos 3 nuits au Glen Guesthouse se sont très bien passées : le personnel est accueillant et arrangeant, la chambre était confortable et au calme, les petits déjeuners étaient copieux et très bons. Seul bémol : le thermostat de la chambre n'était pas réglable et il faisait très chaud, et la température de la douche passé au froid à intervalles réguliers. Ce que je retiens surtout est que nous avons beaucoup apprécier être dans le centre et ne pas subir le bruit, que la chambre était très bien nettoyée chaque jour et que le petit déjeuner est vraiment top si on aime les Irish Breakfast.
