It's a nice hostel, close to the city centre (5 main by feet), very clean, the bathroom is nice for an hostel. Their is a nice kitchen where you can cook when you want a nice living room, the staff is cool and from everywhere in Europe, and they organise events every night. I recommend the place!

I have never been abroad before nor stayed at a hostel and I was very pleasantly surprised with my visit to the Times Hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were fairly spacious and clean and the people were amazingly nice and helpful. I loved meeting so many students and travelers from everywhere in the world. It was a great experience. I... More

The hostel was in a good location, just off of St Stephen's Place. It was clean and modern. The reception staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Beds were comfortable and the room was a good size. However no wardrobe and only 4 hooks between the two of us. And the worse thing was the extremely loud club, about 25 metres away,... More

Best hostel staff I've ever come across, not just friendly and helpful but just lovely people! Made the weekend so easy. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and there was free tea in the kitchen. However the rooms were super basic - no mirrors, shelves, hooks, bins - really simple things that make a difference. There were storage crates for each... More

Wish we had seen "Kzamamis'" review: it is accurate. We like to party, and, we need to sleep eventually too. Sorry, for the poor rating - to be clear - its a lovely, clean, building in a lovely area of Dublin. But to be honest - the fact that the pubs and parties next door and the very thin walls... More

Everything was great except for the fact that you won't sleep a wink. Next to a pub that blasts music until 4am. I'm all about partying but I need a place to sleep, and all night all I heard was yelling and music. Would not recommend.

We have been at Times Hostel - Camden Place so many times. It is the best hostel in Dublin. The Location is just perfect - the best Pubs of Dublin are in a walking distance max. 200 metres. Grafton Street is about 5 minutes walking distance. The airport bus stops in front of the door and a grocery store is... More

My first 2 days were ok. There is a pub which is just next to hostel and the noise will become worse during the middle of the night when people start becoming drunk. Even though it was noisy and the room was small, it still wasn't that terrible until my third day there. First, the bathroom lights were flickering and... More

We were skeptical at first in booking this hostel but our doubts quickly withered away as soon as we got there. The reception staff was kind and sympathetic when we were told we could not check into our room until 4pm instead of 2 due to a huge party that left in the morning which left the cleaning staff swamped....
