I’ve spent 3 nights in this hostel with some friends and the room was very clean with a private bathroom. People very friendly and welcome. Breakfast was really good. I will recommend it 100%!!! If I would have to go to Dublin again I wouldn’t think twice. good location also, the bus from the airport stops closer.

Being next to Trinity College, in a clean and comfortable place with a lovely staff made our stay an excellent one. Bathrooms are new, beds are fine but most of all everything in set to be in a friendly atmosphere, the kitchen gives access to anything we could need for free if we don’t forget to wash what we use. I wish I could find that kind of hostel in every place I visit !

Solid hostel for backpackers and travelers. Pros: Convenient location near Trinity College, Temple Bar neighborhood, and other attractions. Friendly and helpful staff. Friendly atmosphere - people in common room watching movies, cooking food, eating breakfast. Cons: Price can get expensive on weekends. Lots of noise and light on weekends from bar next door.

My sister and I overall enjoyed our stay here at the Times Hostel in the 6-bed female dorm room. We met a lot of very nice people from all over the world! The location is perfect: so central to everything! We found our room to be quiet (minus a few of the girls coming in and out--but that's a hostel for you!) and comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean and modern. The staff are hit or miss: we had one incredibly unfriendly woman check us in, and then a super friendly woman help us book our tour. We also wished that the kitchen opened a bit earlier so that we could have made our breakfast before leaving for an early tour! Finally, at nearly $50 per person per night on the weekend, the price is very steep for what you get.

This was a nice hostel. One great thing about the hostel is their 24-hour reception. I arrived late at night and had to leave early in the morning. The room and bathroom were clean and nice. The location of the hostel is great, it is right by Trinity College. Walking to destinations or public transportation is easily accessible.

Stayed here for the night while attending a concert and it suited two of us perfect will definitely be back. We left very early to catch a bus home and there was no problem with early checkout. Staff are very helpful

Location is ideal - beside Trinity college and very close to Temple Bar area. There is no air con so the rooms are hot during the night and if you open the window then it can get noisy. The room was comfy and fairly spacious. Its a reasonable priced hostel option for the area.

Not our greatest stay, however the staff was excellent and service minded. Rooms were low standard, and if your room is facing the street you won't get any sleep because of all the noise. Beds were uncomfortable and you could feel the bed springs from the mattress. Breakfast didn't deserve its name. Low price though so you get what you pay for, it was ok considering that it was central but wouldn't stay here again.

Spent three nights at the hostel and would definitely repeat with them. One of the cleanest hostel I've ever been at, nice staff and free tea and coffee at any time. Nice lounge area and they even let me use the kitchen once checked-out.

I was traveling by myself and stayed in a 10 bed dorm. Everything was clean, the dorm was quite large with two windows a table and chairs, quite spacious. Only down side to the room was that it was one bathroom for the 10 people but everyone was out at all hours so really didn't ever have to wait for the bathroom. One good thing about this hostel was the security, there were two doors you have to go through just to get into the dorm part of the hostel, and you needed a key for both. The guys at the counter were so nice! They helped me with maps and tickets, whatever I needed. The location of the hostel was great, within walking distance of Temple bar district, right next to Trinity College. Would stay again for sure.
