I liked the hostel, and thought the location was good, and was glad to get wifi, although faster wifi would have been good. Unfortunately my room mates could not get wifi. The paint scheme in the room could be brighter and the fact that the sockets were so high up would have been an issue if I hadn't taken one of the bunk beds.

Times Hostel -Camdel Place is an excellent option considering value/money. The location is good, not at the heart of Dublin but everything is 15-20 min waliking. The breakfast is OK, they have the basics: cereal. milk, fruit, bread, cheese, tomato and jam. The staff is very friendly and nice. The rooms are tidy, they don't have a wardrobe tough, but there is a place for your luggage you just need to rent a lock at the front desk. There are activities pretty much every evening. I recommend it

Good location, good staff and free wifi etc. Did feel a little cheap, but I've stayed in much less comfortable places for more money so yeah I'd stay here again if bang for buck was my main concern. The staff were nice, up for a chat etc.

Rooms, toilets, common space very clean. Lots of rooms make for lots of backpackers. 15 min walk to Temple Bar. Highly recommended, would stay again

Perfect location for going out in the local village quarter, and not far from the city centre walking. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and everything you need from a hostel.

This is the best hostel I've stayed at in Dublin (out of 3) - It's a good location, feels very secure, has super helpful staff and a good atmosphere to meet people as it's a little more intimate than the others. There's good nightlife areas nearby, including Whelans from PS. I love you just around the corner!

Can be noisy as so near nightclubs etc, but depends which room your in and what night of the week you stay!

The lower bunk beds were really short and i kept bumping my head, but everything else was fine. Each bed had 2 charging points so everyone gets a chance to charge their stuff. :) Nice breakfast, clean bathrooms and great location but can get quite noisy at night.

Great atmosphere!! Bit of a hike from the bus station, definitely recommend taking the No.16 bus to get there with your luggage! Free pancakes were great on the weekend.

When we walked in the floor was still drying and you could smell the diluted bleach, which is in my opinion a good thing because you knew that room was clean! The staff was very pleasant, although the common room is a little more cramped than pictured. We didn't eat the breakfast, so no opinion on that. There were regular activities in the evening, and security was good (front door locked after 11 pm, you have a key to get in and into your room, show a pass to the night staff). 1 washer, 1 dryer

nice atmosphere and friendly staff; however facilities are really poor, no where to hang your jackets up, and no trash bins inside of the room, only in the bathroom. softy mattress will cause you back pain in the morning but generally it's valuable to stay at this hostel

The staff is very nice and helpful. The location is good, not far from city center, but there is a club there, so very loud at night. The room is relatively clean, but my friend says she saw mould on the wall... because of my bad eyesight, i didnt notice anything. Price is good.
