I recently stayed here with 3 other friends in 2 rooms for an overnighter in Dublin, the rooms are very basic and small but met our needs , and though the shower is basic it done the job , the rooms do not have TV's. Breakfast which is included is ok but the coffee is probably the worst coffee i've ever tasted. The price to stay is quite good value though.

Check in 3pm very strict about it unless they like the look of you. Sit in cafe to wait,2 girls talking, dirty tables and floor, bin bag on a trolley in customer area. Room available later than 3pm as housekeeping not ready. Room its self clean and fresh smelling. Beds hard but nice clean bedding. Noisy with doors banging and kids shouting, but worse still a loose draincover on road outside room banging as a car went over it. We lasted 1 hour in room and left. My advice is just dont bother. It might appear cheap in relation to other accommodation in dublin. But 3 star it is not.

Free parking is a big plus in a city where parking can be a premium. Breakfast is included in the price and is very good. Check in is straightforward and the lady was very helpful and explained everything very well. The bus service is right outside the campus and there is a regular bus into the city about every 10 minutes. 6 Euros for 2 persons. We were able to get the bus back from Leeson Street on a Saturday night at 2320. The rooms are spacious but a little tired looking. Overall I would recommend this place. I love University stays they have an atmosphere all of their own.

Stayed here for numerous stints for work, the rooms are basic but a nice size. The bed is very comfortable. Both the breakfast and the lunches are top quality. Down side is the rude exchange students running around banging doors, screaming around the grounds during late hours is very annoying and off putting. Would of walked out if wasn’t paid up full from my company. Seem to let them do what they want with no respect for other guests or discipline from the university.

I had an awful experience with the canteen staff. I walked in the canteen for the very first time at lunch time and I noticed there were no glasses whatsoever to get water from their reservoir. I then asked a member of the canteen staff for a glass, and I was told there was none. I asked the woman how I was supposed to drink water and she replied I should have brought a glass or a bottle from home. I said it was my very first time there and that I had not been informed about it. After very much insisting, I got the woman to give me a paper glass. However, she kept on saying that I had been rude, while in fact she had been quite rude to me to tell the truth. When other people in the canteen saw me with a glass in my hand, they asked me how I had been able to get it, as they could not drink any water at all owing to the lack of glasses. I find the policy of DCU on this issue totally shameful.

This was the worst we have ever stayed in. We paid A LOT for 6 days - and it was horrible. The cleaning was poor and our bathroom had a toilet that was black and smelly. We had to close the lid and close the door to reduce the smell. The bed was uncomfortable, the room was dirty and small and the smell made it impossible to spend time in the room. Breakfast was poor and the cafe rarely had any food.

we got a room there, it wasn't clean so luckily we got the cleaning staff close by so they fixed it but the room was really small for 2 people and the bathroom really smelled and the toilet was black because it hasen't been cleaned for a long time, there was a shared kitchen, it was smelly and dirty we did not got in there without shoes on, the floor was really dirty, so we did not spend time in there there was a cafe in the DCU rooms there where opening hours but it wasn't sure that you could buy anything there because they had other rules when there was students or not students and we wanted to use the gym and on the website it was 10 EUR but when they where fully booked the price was dobbelt to 20 EUR, so we did not use that either An expensive room for poor quality :-( in total a really bad experience to stay there in a beautiful city like dublin, ill never go there again

Stayed their one night just after the concert, it was ideal spot for one night stay due to reasonable price (not crazy expensive as many accommodations in Dublin) and it was close to the concert venue that even after the concert it was only an hour walk. The bus stop to go in to city center was only 5 minutes away. The breakfast was included in the price which was handy and it was good. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and it was perfect for short stay as I only slept in the room as I was out all day doing touristy bits and then head away for concert in the evening.

We managed to get a room here a week before we were attending a gig in the RDS. we booked 3 nights and one of the plusses was the free parking for us. From the minute we checked in to the minute we left, everything was more than we expected. If you accept that you are in student accommodation (but of a very high standard) with all that that entails you will definitely NOT be disappointed. The place was spotless, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the onsite canteen for breakfast and bar with a restaurant in the evening were excellent. A short walk to the campus gates and you can get a bus straight into town and even right out to the RDS, and Ikea is short hop away. Free wifi was a bonus too. A taxi from town only cost us €20. This is not a 4star hotel, but for what we paid, and what we got we were more than satisfied. We will definitely be back.

Just returned home from 1 nights stay in Dublin for a concert. This place is perfect for an overnight stay. Less expensive than staying in the city centre and just as handy. 5mins on the bus and you are in the town. Rooms clean and breakfast is included in the price. Its canteen breakfast and it's basically that but it would do you for a quick bite. Had lunch in the bar and it was lovely. Staff all really lovely and friendly. Free car parking on sight too. I would definitely stay here again of in Dublin for a night.
