Had a very brief stay here overnight with 7 of my friends. We paid €42 each for a one night stay. We got 2 keys from reception which was very handy between 8 people! We had a room to ourselves (4 bunk beds). Very clean & well laid out. Delighted to discover we had 2 bathrooms- smaller one had a... More

I've stayed in a mixed 6 people room and I've to say, it overcome my expectations! Everything was super clean, beds comfortable enough for a good price that included breakfast in the morning. Although the most important thing was that you can check in anytime after 2 or 3pm. It's easy to find and the night receptionist Gheorghe was a... More

Had a good stay at the place. Easy to find, close to a lot of attractions. All within walking distance. The only con that I had was the people walking up and down the stairs and the level above us loudly late into the night and even during wee hours in the morning.

It's all about location in Dublin and Times Hostel is right across the street from Trinity College so in the very center of Dublin. Dorms were surprisingly spacious and had comfortable beds. Nice cheap optional breakfast as well. But the coup de grace was each night they had a theme give away; wine the first night and ice cream the... More

I stayed in a 6 bedded female room with en suite bathroom (No 17) Camilla, at reception was friendly & efficient. Only 4 of the bunks were occupied & I slept surprisingly well. The bed linen was clean & fresh & the bathroom was spotless & it appeared to be recently refurbished with really nice shower with lots of hot... More

Location is great. Right near Temple Bar and the tourist traps of Dublin. That being said, can be quite loud at night. Overall value good if hostels appeal to you. Transportation around this area is very frequent and easy to use. However, most everything is in walking distance.

I had a shared dorm with 12 people and a shared toilet. The place was clean, sanitary and everyone was very respectful of each other's schedule and noise levels were kept low. The staff was helpful and stored our luggage till our flights. The location is very central and worked out well for us. The breakfast buffets were nice.

This place is in a GREAT location, cool building, nice staff, cheap breakfast and all the good facilities. However, the road outside is SO noisy. They really need to double glaze the windows. I hardly slept for 4 nights, listening to the buses, drunks and construction work outside.

Me and my friends stayed at the Times for two nights and it was really good. The staff was friendly, always helpful if we had any questions. The location is good, close to Temple Bar, the shopping area and to the bus to the airport. Nice and clean place
