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.

Late night staff were friendly and accommodating, Could use a little more common room space--proximity to next door bar pretty awesome! Good times

Staff was very knowledgable and helpful. Kitchen was big and well supplied and had fun activities. Location was awesome. Only complaint was the beds were not very comfortable

The hostel is in a good location and safe area. I felt comfortable getting back at night alone. You're close enough to Temple Bar but not in the middle of it so noise isn't much of an issue. Everything seemed pretty clean. The staff is super nice and helpful. They have cool free events each night, like free wine one night. I didn't have any issues with Wifi. I'd definitely stay again.

This is a great hostel, but mostly if you don't really care about meeting people. The setup doesn't encourage you to pop into the common areas or anything. However, the rooms are really clean and upgraded. Plugs everywhere. The bathrooms are great. The staff is also really friendly, and they have free dinner on Wednesday. I would definitely stay here again if I wanted a few quiet nights in Dublin.

This was a great place for being near the heart of Dublin and getting a good night sleep. The atmosphere wasn't too lively when I was there, which was too bad.

ctions and the templé bar district, but far enough to avoid noise at night (except for the bar downstairs). Staff really helpful and breakfast is huge. Our private bathroom was very clean but the beds were a bit noisy. Would go there again for sure.

location, value & cleanliness is exceptional, but what really separates the Times is the staff. They are superb.

Placed in a perfect área, close to many attractions and the templé bar district, but far enough to avoid noise at night (except for the bar downstairs). Staff really helpful and breakfast is huge. Our private bathroom was very clean but the beds were a bit noisy. Would go there again for sure.
