book 3 people for 4 night and one of us had to switch rooms 3 times during the stay. Also there are no commitment from the staff on their so called "activites" .The hostel itself is not very social hostel with good meeting points either. would not recommend staying here to any of my friends in the future.


My stay there was wonderful, the staff was more then friendly and helpful. My time there was very much the time of my life. The extra activities that was placed on the board, such as welcome drinks one day and a pub crawl the next were of great help and a lot of fun. Personally, i think The Times Hoste is a gem.

I would have to say one of the best hostels I've stayed in, the staff are super helpful and friendly. They keep the hostel in top cleanliness. I would highly recommend alone stays in Dublin to check into this hostel. They have events on each night which is great way for very one to meet people from around the world


First of all, every staffs are so amazingly kind and helpful. Sheets of bed and pillow was very clean. And toilet was clean! Dublin is quiet small so you can take 20min to guiness store house. There's friendly events every evening , i recommend you enjoy it! ( Especially The staff who help me the 3Three mobile network problem was soooo much helpful) 시설 깨끗하구 스테프들 너무너무 친절 하구 매일 저녁 마다 공짜 음식 같은것도 주는 이벤트도 있으니 참여 해 버시기를! 더블린은 작으니까 걸어서 다 다닐 수 있어요!)

This was probably the cleanest hostel I have stayed in so far. The rooms and bathrooms were very tidy and cleaned well everyday. The beds were decently comfortable and had storage drawers beneath them. Staff was quite friendly. Location was pretty good, it is close to lots of bars but you could say that anywhere in Dublin. It is right beside the major clubs in Dublin but not as close to the Temple Bar district however it was only about a 20 minute walk or so. Not much of a common area exists.


Excellent location, within walking distance to just about everything, and they have a cheap shuttle to the airport at anytime you need! Staff were super nice too! They did not have lockers in the rooms but they did have bathrooms. Would stay again


Staff were generally helpful, bathroom wasn't very clean, overall ok place to stay.


Great hostel, very young and trendy vibe! Also close to many of Dublin's attractions, and only a 15-20 min walk to Temple Bar. Young and cool/fun staff, although we had some issues with unprofessionalism; namely that we were staying in a new section of the hostel that got repainted during our stay, but we were not warned of wet paint resulting in some clothing damage. Fairly expensive, and breakfast is not included. Daily events are neat, and lots of fun! (such as wine&cheese night!)


The description is exactly what is offered. It's a great place to stay in Dublin for a few days. Staff was very rinds and rooms were clean.


The staff were incredibly helpful and fun. They have free things every evening and a really nice kitchen! Everything was clean and in good condition. Showers were hot, but I think it depended on when you took them. Beds were decently comfortable but pillows a bit flat. Location was perfect! Within walking distance to tons of pubs, tourist office, and shopping. Storage bins under the beds and outlets by every bed were super convenient


The staff were incredibly helpful, the rooms were clean, the kitchen was small but equipped with everything we needed (except was a little low on spoons). There was quite a bit of noise but nothing unexpected given the central location.

The hostel is like 5-10mins walk to the city center and with great atmosphere. The rooms are clean. The kitchen is really big


Such a great place! The staff were so helpful, I'm going to miss this hostel!
