Rather decent; staff were a bit odd but pleasant nonetheless.

Stayed in the 4 bedroom Ensuite bathroom and the place was surprisingly clean and very comfortable. The staff cleaned the entire room and replaced soap and toilet paper after each guest left. It's also close to Temple Bar and the bus to the airport. I would def recommend this hostel.

I was really disappointed with this hostel after hearing such good things. It was mostly the atmosphere, which wasn't really the hostels fault, but the wifi issues (only worked at reception) definitely contributed. My room was also too hot to sleep and we only had heavy duvets. Great location but not amazing otherwise.

Always a great stay with Times Hostel. As a heads up, in a 6 bed dorm (ensuite) they only had 4 security cages under bed. Try to share with a friend if you are staying with them. Otherwise, great location near Trinity and Temple Bar.

The location is really central. The staff were helpful, although it's hard to identify who is actually working there. The desk is supposed to be open 24 hours but they close periodically and it can be frustrating when you want to check in or out and you don't know when they'll be back. The wifi doesn't work well at all, not even in the lobby. And the lobby is also very small, hardly any room to sit. Rooms are big though.

nice place, just beside Trinity college. The wifi connection isn't so reliable, others are all quite good.

I loved staying at The Times Hostel. The staff is very helpful and ridiculously nice. The location is perfect, in front of Trinity College. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe at the area. There were lockers in the room, and breakfast available for 3 Euros. Also, free ice cream! Every bed has its plug. The room was really big, the common area too. It was great.

We spent almost no time actually in the hostel in Dublin, but what time we did spend was quite enjoyable. The staff was quite hospitable and helpful, the security was top-notch, and the rooms were quiet. I'd definitely recommend this hostel.

Plugs not working, tiny sink which floods the bathroom, wardroab without shelves, squeeky uncomfortable bed, sulfury smelling water (only from sink tap, not shower), no wifi repeater for upper floors thus basically no wifi

Comfortable beds, good vibe, really wonderful staff. Loads of outlets in the rooms and reliable wifi which is always a plus. Could be cleaner.
