The Times Hostel is a very good place to rest in Dublin. Located in the center of the city, it is a perfect starting point to visit Dublin. My room was clean and the bathroom too. The price is low, considering that you are in Dublin. The staff is friendly and helpful; maybe they need only to take more care... More

We have booked short stay in the apartment through The Times Hostel which is 5 min walk away. First of all our room was not ready when we arrived and we had to wait an hour before somebody finally brought the keys, which by the way must be somehow special as they requested 50 euro deposit for them. Water pressure... More

Nice and relaxed hostel with awesome staff who were friendly and helpful. Rooms were decent, big plus was that they are spacious and have outlets for each bed. Beds are comfy! Rooms were clean and bathroom (ensuite) was cleaned everyday. Location is great!

Great location, no question. A few minutes walk to Trinity College, Grafton Street shopping, Temple Bar area, bus stops, the dock area etc. The front desk staff was also terrific - friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, etc. There were quite a few serious negatives though. I've stayed in many hostels and this one was pricey and dirty. The hallways were dark, the... More

Firstly, the location of this hostel is perfect and the rooms are functional and clean. Unfortunately our interaction with the guy on reception left us all with a sour taste in our mouths. It was also our american friends last stop on a 3 month euro trip in which they had received warm welcomes everywhere up until they reached Dublin.... More

Visited for two nights with family. Was unsure of what to expect as it was the first time we had stayed in a Hostel. Very friendly staff on arrival. Told us everything we needed to know. Room was easy to find despite what other reviews may of said, just follow the signs. Kitchen was nice and clean with a good... More

The location of the hostel is very nice. Only about a 5-10 minute walk to the start of the free walking tours and to any tour buses you plan on taking around the country. The staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room. They included the pull out lockers underneath the bed. The bathroom and... More

Location is brilliant if you want to be right bang in the heart of the city and the staff are friendly.... That's all the positives I have... Negatives....we stayed in a 4 per private room....it was a crazy tight fit to say... More

I stayed here for two non consecutive nights. The first night was in a room with no windows and a skylight which opens up. Not recommended for people who are claustrophobic. The second night was in a room that was relatively bigger than the shoebox that I was in the first night. What was weird though was the the bed... More

I was duped by the high marks here. This is an extremely low budget operation at grossly inflated prices. The room was ridiculously tiny,as was the bathroom. No extras of any kind, including no towels. The beds were tiny bunk beds. Our one window opened to a trash-filled mishmash of junk, and I was seriously afraid to open the windows... More
