Spent one night in a four bed dorm. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and ensuite. Left luggage facility is great. Hostel is just a few minutes walk from temple bar and the main shopping streets. Free wifi worked fine and locker available under the bed, Overall very good value.

Central location. Worth staying just for that. You can walk everywhere, easily. However, the place wasn't particularly clean and it was often times quite cold in the rooms. Absolutely no heating. Overall still quite nice. Sleep quality isn't so good, you can hear everyone (hallways and outside) who passes by at odd hours of the night.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay in Dublin and would fully recommend Times hostel to anyone looking for a cheap place to stay in Central Dublin. Staff were friendly on arrival and throughout, rooms were clean and spacious and great value for money. Location is excellent - 5 mins from temple bar and right by the bus... More

The location is only a few minutes away from the nightlife district of Dublin and there is also a nice Pub at the ground floor. Compared to other hostels it's rather expensive, but the sanitäre rooms a very clean.

Stayed here with a group of friends for a stag do last year. Staff are great and really friendly, the room was big and the beds were clean and comfortable. Basically all you need on a stag do! It's really conveniently located and secure. Just don't loose your key or its a €10 charge!

Built for quality convenience. Strategic location, very friendly staff, quality accommodations, comfortable, clean, attracts a fun crowd. We took the metro from the airport, conveniently dropped off our backpack at the hostel (they put your luggage aside and lock it up for you if you come before check in time), before walking everywhere that interested us in Dublin. Two of... More

We spent 3 nights in a twin room. The hostel is right in front of the Trinity College, so it's in the deep center of Dublin. There's always someone at tthe front desk, 24/7 and they are all very nice. The room was clean, but the beds were quite uncomfortable (the mattress' springs were completely gone). The door is not...

I stayed there for 3 nights. Its location is right in the center of the city which allows to go to all the local places walking per se Temple Bar, Grafton Street etc. They have pretty good internet access and offer breakfast at an affordable price of 3 euros. Further, the common room is comfortable and a good option to... More

We stayed in a room for 4 over the weekend. I have to admit the check in was the best I have ever had anywhere, super friendly and helpful. The room was facing the College Street which is busy and noisy at night, so it's good to have earplugs. The heater was off when we came, so it was a... More
