    Everything was fine, only issue was the Irish government shut down the hostel and forced everyone out to make room for the homeless amidst the Coronavirus spreading. Had to walk a mile to the other Times Hostel at like 10pm. Not only that, but they cut the lock off my locker since I wasn’t there (didn’t get back until late). They could’ve just waited for me to unlock it, maybe a cab to the other place, but can’t hold that against them; things are getting crazy.

    The place itself and the staff made me feel like in home. The people (staff and other guests) were really nice, the hostel was extra tidy and clean, and the rooms super comfy. I really recommend it!

    I will be honest. This was my first time at a hostel ever, because I always use AIRBNB or hotels. And to be precise. This place was pretty neat, cheap, and clean. And The staff was very professional. For the money, it was a good experience. Just one thing, I wish this place had Febreze in the air fresheners placed inside the rooms in case anyone could end up having someone in the room with some hardcore stinky feet problem. However, a great place. Lower your standards & Mind yourself.

    A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere, staff are always more than happy to help. Everywhere is super clean and the hostel is about a 20 minute walk from the main attractions.

    Overall I had a good time at the hostel, the staff were very helpful, Thomas stood out to me as being most helpful. facilites were good, clean and had all that you need, and breakfast was as you'd expect so no complaints! I met some good people during my short stay that were fellow travellers, however I noticed that there were a fair few Irish locals staying at the hostel, some of which made me feel uncomfortable, which is not the staff's fault its just how it is. I overall reccomend this 9/10

    Friendly staff and the bathroom and rooms were clean. Beds aren’t super comfy but for $15/night it’s hard to complain. They have locks and towels at the front office for a small deposit which is convenient. They also have washer and dryers if you want to wash your clothes. Their nightly activities are a fun way to meet the other people staying.

    We were able to check in on arrival, and there was adaquate room for 3 people& it was clean. It would have been good to have a stool/chair/box?! to sit on in the (private) room as its hard to sit on bunk beds and put shoes on etc. It would be easier for guests if the towels were in room on arrival w/request to bring them back to reception on check out- nothing like hopping out of a shower to discover no towels to be found! The internet reception is poor- no reception in our room (ground floor!)

    2 hostels in Dublin with the same name, street is different. I (yes definitely my mistake) booked the wrong one. I had been in contact with them as I needed to drop my bags off at 5 am and then would return about 11 pm to check in.. When I arrived to drop my bags I had realised of my mistake and contacted them right away, they didn't care weren't fussed, helpful or one but understanding.. This hostel is miles away from anything and with the way most of the staff were I wouldn't ever recommend
