The kitchen facilities at this hostel were awesome, staff were fantastic, great wifi access, AMAZING location by far the best spot in Dublin, not right in the hustle and bustle of the night life but literally like a 2 minute walk so u don't have to deal with the loud music when it comes time for some shut eye.

I spent 5 nights with a friend there and it's still warm around my heart when I think about the place. The location was perfect, only a few minutes walk to Temple Bar and the supermarkets and Trinity College and pretty much everything. The staff were awesome, they were always hanging around with other people, very sweet and open. I... More

This was a great hostel! It was in a great location, easy to get to from the airport (just take the Air Link bus to the College stop), and easy to get to all other local attractions with walking (Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Jamison Distillery, Guinness Factory, St. Patrick's Cathedral, O'Connoll Street). Stayed in the 10 bed mixed dorm, there... More

Recently stayed here in a private room while visiting a concert in Dublin. No luxuries, but for the price I didn't expect any! Easy to find and a really good location for the centre of Dublin, and lots going on around it! Wifi signal not good. Would consider staying here again if in Dublin for a concert.

One of the cheapest places we could find with a private room in Dublin. Excellent location. Hostel has a kitchen if you're interested in cooking and friendly helpful staff. The only improvement I would suggest is getting more modems installed as there is very limited wifi throughout the hostel and none in the room we were in. Not a big... More

I have to agree with others that the hostel is well located and the premises are fairly good for a hostel. Their staff is young and nice, a great pub downstairs which opens till late. Our bedroom was a triple with a private bathroom (great water pressure) and it was furnished very functionally ... Totally what you expect from a... More

Tiny but clean, and safe! Definitely not our nicest stop but great for just one night. Perfect location right next to Trinity College. Had to look hard for parking (nothing was cheap) but we survived. Two great features included the spacious lobby with friendly staff and the dining hall.

Located in the heart of Dublin city centre, this hostel provided everything we needed for our brief stay. The rooms were basic but clean. The shower was hot and had good pressure. The TV didn't work but the staff said they could ask someone to fix it if we wanted... We didn't but it was nice of them to offer.... More

Really enjoyed the last few days at the Times. As far as facilities go the place is great; fully equipped kitchen, common area, free WIFI - which is great (in places). The rooms also come with a massive lockable cage underneath which will lock up pretty much everything - including full sized luggage. In regards to cleanliness; no complaints -... More
