    We had an excellent stay in Dublin - the hostel staff were friendly and extremely helpful, and the location is perfect for first time visitors like us! All the other visitors to the hostel were lovely, we had some really fun evenings spent meeting new people and socialising. We're already looking forward to our next trip!

    The Times is located in the heart of Dublin - Trinity College is right around the corner, and the main shopping area is a quick walk away. A simple breakfast was provided in the morning. The room was clean but would advise shower shoes if you're planning on using the facilities. We checked out in the morning but were able to store our luggage until our departure from the city. Comfy beds, nice staff, overall a positive experience!

    The rooms are large with enough space and really nice, beds were very comfortable. But having only one bathroom for 10 people is def not enough. The breakfast had fruit which is great, and they put friends on TV during the breakfast which was really fun.

    Really great location! Easy to walk or catch buses to everywhere I wanted to go. Beds a bit hard but nice and clean, great en suite in my dorm with a nice shower, clean and plenty of hot water. I definitely spent a good chunk of time recovering from jet lag here and they had me in a nice quite room. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking. Staff was helpful with most of my inquiries.

    Great location, nice facilities, most of the staff was nice, not always accommodation. Beds aren't very comfortable but do the trick. Would recommend for no more than 3-4 night stay.

    Very basic, kinda gross hostel but with a good location. Bed was super lumpy and shook anytime the person on the bottom (or I) moved. Bathroom was in need of cleaning. It was fine for one night but not ideal.

    Staff are grumpy buggers that don’t wish to know you, ‘fully’ equipped kitchen doesn’t even have an oven. Everything was dirty, except the beds, but they are not comfortable. Nice location though if you can find it, looks more like a pub than a hostel from outside
