met a lot of cool people when I stayed here. around the corner from the the temple bar area and within walking distance of other attractions. a lot of great places to eat in the end area as well. I'll definitely stay here again.
Absolutely fantastic staff at the front desk!! A big shout-out to Keara and Leah, both of whom sent us on fantastic adventures and knew exactly where to go, when, and why! If you're staying Dublin, Times Hostel is definitely the place to stay!

I booked one of the private ensuites and it was pretty disgusting. The bed was just sitting on the floor and there was a black ring around it. One of the worst mattresses ever. It's a hostel so I don't expect much, but it should at least be clean. The bathroom had black mold on the ceiling too, that was pretty bad
This hostel is all over the place. Maintenance guys fixing interior had all sort of rubbish like wooden planks dumped in front of our room that caused serious obstruction, when coming in or out of the room. Housekeeping completely cleaned my bed removing my belongings without respect to the fact that storage basket under the bed had my belongings locked up and finally Reception Manager chose to distance herself away saying she will get back to me shortly, sadly it never happened. Thumbs down.
I stayed at this hostel for one night at the end of my stay in Ireland. It was a clean comfortable hostel. Good showers, friendly staff. Its in a good location just a few minutes walk to the temple bar district.
It was a good price for a good deal. The awesome girl at the office (lena or lea ? Sorry about that) was really nice, I realy appreciated that. The hostel was clean, cosy, safe and sound. Internet everywhere, good kitchen, I met some people, it was perfect. This idea of something to do every night (like wine and cheese, etc) is cool and nice for make poeple talk to each other :)

Bed was comfortable, shower was better than I expected, the staff were very friendly and stored my bad for free until check in time. The location was a bit difficult to find but that may be due to all the construction in Dublin at the time. There was no screen in window so I left it down ( a few birds hit the window no long after I decided to leave it closed so I was glad I didn't open it but the room was really warm and stuffy because of that.
This hostel was amazing, I have ZERO complaints. I stayed in a 6 dorm all Female hostel and I made friends with all of them straightaway. Not to mention the staff is SOOOO friendly and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Not to mention the LOCATION is perfect. I will stay again when I return to Dublin!
Everything feels a bit run down. One bathroom for a 10-bed dorm. Dirty tables in the kitchen/common area. People were friendly and location was good but I wouldn't stay here again.
The hostel was very dirty, there were spiders in the room and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. The kitchen was nice and prettyy clean. It had a good location and the people were nice but the higiene in the rooms was really worrying.
The hostel is clean and the location is perfect, which is very important, but the pictures that the website shows are definitely warped. I have never seen smaller rooms in any other building than in this hostel. There was barely enough room for all four people (in the four bed private room) to stand up at the same time. If you rent one bed and stay here with people you don't know in the room, it could be very uncomfortable due to how incredibly small and cramped the rooms are.
We had fun because we met people in the kitchen/ common area. The kitchen is stocked so you can make everything you need. The bathrooms could be better but it was still an okay experience. Plenty of space for luggage as well
The location is great. The bedroom has some humidity problems in its walls. Pls take into account that the breakfast is not included in the price of the hostel. The personal gives a very ggod service.
Couldn't reach the wall sockets in the bedroom. Furnishings generally worn. Staff were very friendly and a strong positive. A key without someone checking meant it was easy for one of others in room to bring a "guest" back. Wasn't happy with so not to use again.
The front desk staff were really great, the hostel itself is a bit outdated in terms of technology, but overall it was a great stay.
Staff is super friendly and I really enjoyed my time there. Bathrooms are clean and function well, Internet was fine, although computers at the lobby were down. Staff was helpful and the people in my room were very nice . I would TOTALLY stay there again :) One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Good job!
amazing hostel, the free things they do every night work really well and are a great way to meet new people. Also there is a free stand comedy gig up the road on Sundays Mondays and Tuesdays that's definitely worth going to
Great location and the staff are really helpful. One of the best breakfast options of any hostel I've stayed at so I didn't mind paying 3 euros for it!
