It was ok but value for money for staying in a 10 person dorm for £49 per night was very poor. You could get a hotel for that price, also you had to pay extra for the breakfast.
Friendly staff warm and welcoming an easy going place in an excellent location place is spotless .It is noisey at night but hey your bang in the centre of a lively area. ❤ loved it.

Great hostel offering freebies and things to do every day. Helpful staff and 24hr reception make it easy to ask your way around Dublin.
Decent location. Close to St Stephens square, shopping district and nightlife. Easily able to walk to and from city centre. Our room nor bathroom wasn't the cleanest. Not sure if this was due to our other roomies maybe being live ins. Otherwise great big kitchen and common room, staff lovely and helpful.
Not the best hostel I have stayed but decent one, though breakfast was disappointing. A bit noisy at night because of the club nearby but they offer earplugs, so props for that. In overall is an OK hostel.
A nice hostel, highlight was the friendly staff and the nice people. Lowlights where the rather small/cramped dorms where I didn't have a pace to even hang my coat. I still would recommend it.
Locatied behind Coppers Night-club which you can hear all night in your bedroom. No oven in kitchen made it use less . Large 10 bed rooms un comfortable cramped with beds so close together you can hear each person moving. General atmosphère very anxious with many people in my room seemed to be in some sort of life crisis or emergency accommodation loud l'y exchanging these stories in the bedroom because of lack of comfortable open social area
My stay at The Times was really great! The staff was super friendly and helpful! I missed my original flight to Dublin and they worked with me so I could still stay there when I flew in! I really enjoyed my stay!
One of the best hostels I've stayed in, staff were super friendly! Beds were comfy and I loved the free dinner!
Super staff! New beds and duvets! Who-hooo! The large lockers under the bed were perfect for storing my pack. The bathroom , en suite, was large and the shower had a big rain head.
As the saying goes .... Location, location, location. I guess that is the reason for the much higher price. The cost was more than double the most I have ever paid for a hostel stay. (Over100 nights) I think because of the cost, I set my expectations way to high. What I found was an average hostel. There wad nothing bad but nothing sensational either to justify the cost. By 17:00 my bunk was still not ready which I found odd. I repeat, there is NOTHING wrong here except the cost.
Noisy at night! People were singing and screaming, can't sleep well.
The staff at this hostel were lovely! Austin and Javier really made our stay here fantastic. The hostel is in a great location, within walking distance of tons of great bars and restaurants and shopping!
Location was absolutely perfect for my first time in Dublin. The atmosphere wasn't as social as I had hoped, but they do have events every night to help facilitate that! Everything was clean and staff was very friendly/helpful!
This place is great, they do pretty much everything right!
i had a great time. don`t forget to bring earplugs, street is very noisy
We had a great stay at Times Camden. Austin, the night porter, was wonderful! Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable enough. We loved the location as we could walk most places we wanted to go. Only issue would be the nighttime noise as there are four clubs in the area but they do offer free ear plugs at the front desk. I would definitely stay here again. They have lots of great things going on nightly like a wine and cheese night, free dinner night and pub crawl as well.

Was a nice place and good stay, but hostel offered few activities and the age mixture was tilted towards 40 and up. Didn't see that at all yet in other hostels.
