It was awesome. The room was really big (usually hostels offer a small room) . There was an aisle going to the bathroom where you could get dressed, make up, etc. It was really comfortable. I had a small problem with a broken cage, but the staff quickly solved it. The kitchen is really cool too, a nice place to... More

This is a hostel of extremes: it has extremely good things and extremely bad ones. As for the good ones, the location is perfect. It's close to everything: Temple Bar, the Liffey, Connolly and Tara train stations, Trinity College, O'Connell Street, Trinity College, the points where tour buses departs... everything. And in that location all of the places to stay... More

Simply the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Dublin is one of my favourite cities on earth, but my stay was a profoundly lonely time for me. The loveliest of people congregate here and it changed my trip and my life. More than a hostel, I promise. Can't wait to get back. Make sure to participate in all the nightly... More

Good location, the room it's big enough and also they are comfortable! The hostel it's close from everywhere in the city and the reception can help you also with some indication and turistic map. Near there is an amazing pub where you can have a lot of fun during the night!

This hostel has a prime location. That without doubt is a major perk. It is close to Temple Bar and pretty much everything else your heart could desire. EVERYONE who works at the front desk is a dream. So friendly. So helpful. As for the accommodations: I mean they provide you shelter from the elements, so thats a perk. The... More

The hostel was in a perfect location, right in the city center. Only 5 minutes walking from Temple Bar. The breakfast was good. Coffee, chocolate and juices; toasts, fruits and cereals...nothing fancy, but more than enough. The beds were not the most comfortable beds, but were ok. And the room and toilet was clean. There was also a share kitchen... More

We stayed at this hostel for 4 nights. 3 women shared the Quad room on the first floor, which is actually 1 flight up. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice. But there was nowhere to put your stuff, other than on your bed, and I drew the short stick and got the top bunk. It would have... More

The Times Hostel is a very good place to rest in Dublin. Located in the center of the city, it is a perfect starting point to visit Dublin. My room was clean and the bathroom too. The price is low, considering that you are in Dublin. The staff is friendly and helpful; maybe they need only to take more care... More

We have booked short stay in the apartment through The Times Hostel which is 5 min walk away. First of all our room was not ready when we arrived and we had to wait an hour before somebody finally brought the keys, which by the way must be somehow special as they requested 50 euro deposit for them.
