First of all I had booked a female dorm... I ended up being in a mixed one. My bed was unmade and I couldn't let them make it because I arrived late at night and everybody in my room were already sleeping. And to get to my room I had to use the torch of my phone because the hallways... More

First time ever I been to a hostel, and what a great experience it was. Staff was friendly and the twin room with en suite shower was very clean and spacious. The breakfast facilities were great plenty of utensils and space to cook yourself. Great meeting place to meet travellers from all over the world and location spot on from... More

My friend and I were booked in for two nights. We asked to get a refund for the second night due to the terrible mattresses with springs that protrude into your back, meaning little sleep and a dirty, hair ridden, grimy ensuite - however we were told we need to give 48 hours notice. Notice to complain for the state... More

First room wasn't cleaned but we got a new one which was very nice and spacious. Beds were noisy. The house is a bit like labyrinth, corridors are rather dark. Staff was great. Good housing for the price - I would definitely come back.

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
