Very kind staff, were able to book me a shuttle because I had an early flight to the airport. Social atmosphere with the different free food and drink given on different days of the week and walking distance to bars, but room and location were quiet for sleeping

The best hostel I have ever been in. It is right in front of trinity college. The beds arent the best and is quite noisy but you can expect that from a hostel. The staff is really helpful. I had my flight to go back really early so I had to be at the airport at 5:40 am and they offered me a shuttle for 8 euros which picks u up in the door of the hostel and leaves you to the airport.

First let me start by saying that everyone who worked at the front desk at The Times Hostel was awesome! We got a map when we checked in and the girl working circled some places to eat/drink that wasn't too touristy or over-priced. The showers in the bathroom were nice. The beds however were very tiny. I would recommend grabbing the top bunk - the bottom bunk you can't sit up in if you taller than 5'0. There also were not any lights by your bed or outlets. Great location though!

During the week the staff organise free events that are fantastic. The rooms are cleaned regularly and the en suite was always clean. Fantastic location close to everything in Dublin. Staff go out of their way to be helpful. Really great place to stay.

A good hostel but really overpriced for the weekends. Very friendly staff. No lockers in rooms which is annoying. Over all a nice hostel and the best location!

Wonderfully friendly staff gave great recommendations on sight-seeing & even the best coffee shops around. Central location right next to Trinity College & Temple Bar area.

The hostel itself was good, I really appreciated the free activities that happened at night. The staff were great. The wifi was terrible, which was very inconvenient. Strangers have a tendency to just wander in, when I stayed there I found 5 locals in the kitchen, just hanging out and eating guests' food. Also, the staff remade the wrong bed partway through my stay which resulted in some of my things being thrown out and arguing with a drunk at 4am over whose bed it was.

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Fantastic kitchen that is well resourced. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms are spacious-bring your lock for the baskets under the bed. One small issue-no lift! But not too many stairs. Will definitely be coming back to this hostel-great location and loads of fun.

Good location (close to Trinity college, Temple bar, O'Connell street...) but close to a noisy pub. It's possible to get rooms not too close to the pub but ask before! Lovely team.

Great location, lovely staff, quite clean, spacious bedroom and bathroom. Not a very big common area but the kitchen seemed quite good.

Great location, basically 5 minutes away from everything. The shower and toilet are per room so it both has it's up side and down side. Staff was friendly and helpful.
