Overview

Looking for a place with a super-friendly vibe in the centre of Dublin? You’ll find that here at The Times Hostel - College Street. We love to socialise, and our free walking tours usually get guests talking – if not, you're bound to bond over our nightly bar crawls that introduce you to the legendary Irish pub scene! We lay on a ton of free stuff, too, like free ice cream on Mondays, free wine and cheese on Tuesdays and free dinner on Wednesdays! so we think you'll love hanging out in our lounge to bond with other travellers over a movie.

Location

We’re on Dublin’s College Street overlooking Trinity College, so the city's best bits are within walking distance. For starters we’re just 3 minutes' walk from the Irish Whiskey Museum. Grafton Street, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Dublin's cultural quarter (so...Temple Bar!) are all a short stroll away. The cheapest way to reach us from the airport is by bus, so hop on the 16 and get off at D'Olier Street. We’re a 2-minute walk from there.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms have wooden floors, high ceilings and large windows so they feel bright and spacious. You can go for the full hostel experience in a shared or female-only dorm, or couple up in a private double or twin room. Whichever you choose, all have en-suite bathrooms, lockers and free sheets. There's free Wi-Fi on tap and plenty of USB sockets too to keep your devices juiced up.

The friendly team at our 24-hour reception is here to make you feel welcome – they’ll book tours and organise airport shuttles. Every morning, tuck into a free breakfast and help yourself to free tea and coffee throughout the day. Lining your stomach before a big night out? Put a pizza in the oven in our fully equipped kitchen and get the party started with the common room’s sound system. And the next day? Retreat to our lounge for a good movie.

    Great location, in terms of being five mins from temple bar. The hostel has all ensuite rooms which is handy. The staff were always helpful when they need. Be sure to book on a Thursday as you get free beer 😘. If hostel is reading this you should advertise your benefits.

    Nice Hostel, but quite expensive, esp. On the weekend. The beds are only 190cm long. Other than that it was fine. Would consider staying here again.

    I didn’t actually get to stay here. Due to the global pandemic (Covid-19), we weren’t able to travel. The hostel refused to refund any percentage of our costs. They offered we come back within 1 year, but this is nearly impossible for us. I understand that this is a crazy time, but I would’ve hoped for greater understanding given how unprecedented this circumstance is.
