Central location, friendly and helpful staff, overall decent value for money. Room was not super clean, window shades were broken hence lack of privacy, sound proof wasn't ideal both from the street and the corridor.

Stayed in a 4-person mixed dorm ensuite for one night before hopping a plane back to the states. The front desk only had ONE key left, so my friend and I had to share it. I wanted to go to the bar - he wanted to stay in. What a waste! The lockers were filled up for personal belongings, so... More

The Times hostel was in a great location, only a 5 minute walk along a straight street to Temple Bar area, pleanty of pubs and places to eat round about it. 5 minute walk to the river also and the same applied for walking to the shopping area. All in all a great location. Rooms were very basic, I stayed... More

I stayed at this hostel several times during the last 2 years. The location is amazing! It is surrounded by several bus stops, shops, pubs and in walking distance to Dublin sites to visit. Sure it needs some maintenance such as blinds for rooms since some are directly opposite street lights, shelves in some bathrooms and more storage facilities in... More

Rooms were tiny, bathroom was about the same size as the actual room, which meant storing luggage in the bathroom. Beds were squeaked anytime anyone moved. Electric plugs worked some of the time although one had to hold the charger a lot. Good location wifi is good and they seemed to offer a lot of services for a hostel. Blinds... More

Location was great, right next to temple bar. The staff were all friendly and bathroom was clean. We found bugs in our bed daily and came home with bites. Room was basic but we were only there to sleep as there was lots to do nearby. Another pro was free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was 3 euros a day, it was very... More

I stayed at the Times Hostel for three nights. It was a great experience for me- clean, safe, etc. The only negative thing I have to say about the Times is that the like their fees- 2€ for towels, 5€ to purchase a convertor, etc. While my room, 17, was very quiet, my friends who were staying in other rooms,...

Aside from the mattresses being uncomfortable, we had a pretty good stay. We stayed in a ten bed room with a private bathroom. The bathroom was relatively large for a hostel. The room was very spacious. The staff was helpful. They stored our luggage before we left and printed our boarding passes. One girl also pulled out a map and... More

As this hostel is close to both Temple Bar and Grafton street, it is a great location for tourists. The rooms are clean and functional but with limited space. There is also a well equipped kitchen and sitting room. The staff were friendly and helpful and there is free Wi-Fi available. Altogether it is pretty basic, but you wouldn't want... More
