The distance to Goldsmiths took 20 mins, with a heavy suitcase, not 5 as reception said...& it's not easy to find. the toilet had not been cleaned and smelled.....the low sink was built for someone in a wheelchair. the kitchen can only be used for making hot drinks & toast. I didnt understand the no cooking rule with a 4 ring hob, pans & fridge available. about wifi you have to return to reception & ask for the login! & it only worked if I lay on the bed.
In bathroom, no shelf to put anything. After a shower the floor filled with water so i hd to use the towels to soak it up. nowhere to blow dry your hair (no electric points in bathroom & no mirror in bedroom. On second night other guests returned to the apartment between 3 and 4am slamming doors, & talking loud...it was 5am before it went quite.
Location in centre of Dublin & lots of places to eat or shop. Airport bus drop outside college. Ferry bus across the street. room was on ground floor, spartan with plain breezeblok walls, wardrobe, adequate for a couple of days, and draw space under the bed. lots of shelving, a worktop & chair, electric points. an ensuite wetroom with toilet & sink with mirror over, . toiletries & towels. My firt night was peaceful, no noise from other guests, the single bed & pillows really comfortable.
Free tea, sugar & milk sachets available in shared kitchen with a Sofa to sit on as well as table & chairs. Storage for suitcases available downstairs in Art Cafe for €3 (closed between 1-2pm)
