The location was the best part of this hostel in my opinion, it was in the heart of city center and within a brief walking distance of everything that I wanted to see. The front desk staff were also very kind, and there was some sort of free "event" every night (food or drink) hosted by the hostel. The Cons...

Economical hotel near Trinity College and the bar district. We traveled with two adults and two teenagers. Our room had two bunk beds, a chair, and a small table. The toilet was a bit hard to flush and the bathroom needed some renovating but water pressure was good. The bath towels were $7 each with a $10 deposit. Wifi worked...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
