Recent guest reviews

These guys gave us a huge help during our days in Dublin. We will be back 100%, hopefully on summer. The room was cleaned every day and they have free events too! We enjoyed the wine and cheese at night!

We had a double room with a bathroom, both were clean and towels were provided. Hostel staff friendly and helpful. Can be quiet loud at night, night club at the back of the Hostel, but receotion have free ear plugs and after a few pints of Guinness was easy to sleep anyway!

Good location, the staff is really great, the kitchen is well equipped. They allow us to leave our luggage on the day of our check out for free. The only thing that was not good that we had a room above the kitchen where people often drank and talk loud, so we've heard everything. The room was clean, but we didn't have a heater in the bathroom. You can also rent towels so there is on need for overpacking the luggage with them. Overall, it was a nice stay and I will recommend this place to my friends.

Hostel just what you want for backpackers or groups travelling for leisure... I went as a group of three female masters students travelling only to Dublin specifically for New Years Eve for 3 nights. -Kitchen is spacious, always clean and filled with useful equipment! -Had fridge space always, free coffee/tea/hot choc is perfect when it's winter in Dublin as it was FREEZING outside. -Hostel was warm with adjustable radiators in rooms aswell as windows you can open whenever you like for fresh air. -Stayed in a mixed dorm of bunk-beds; each bed has a shelf with a plug socket and a reading light which is just what you need, shared an en-suite which was cleaned regularly and is very modern and spacious (also supplied with soap while some hostels don't!) -Staff very friendly and helpful with suggestions around Dublin and further out -Most nights have a social event (either wine and cheese, free crisps and dip, free pancakes or free dinner etc) which is awesome. -Spot on location to see loads, can walk to Grafton Street and all the sights but also right next to huge clubs (we had one night in where you could hear some noise for a bit but wasn't too bad we fell asleep pretty quickly) Would definitely go again as great value for money.

The purpose of our visit was a catch up and mad night out among friends. Hostel is about a 10 minute walk from Grafton street and right beside coppers night club. It was great for us as it was affordable and all we wanted to do was have a mad night out. Staff were super friendly too. There was 3 of us and we had a room to ourselves which was great. Would recommend if like us you are looking for a night out.

Stayed in hostels before- simple but comfortable. This one is the LOUDEST, most uncomfortable, hostel I’ve ever experienced. Club LITERALLY next door. Up until 4am, no refund given on the one night my family stayed. Not worth it! Parking £30 night as well.

We booked this as part of a Travelocity package and only stayed 1 out of 10 nights booked. The staff was friendly - the only plus. The room was stifling hot, no fans available. The club across the alley kept us awake till 4am. The only parking available was a parking garage a 10 minute walk away and it cost us €28 per night. When we asked for a refund we were told it was non-refundable even though we only stayed 1 out of 10 nights.

The hostel itself is at a nice location, close to a bunch of bars for going out and centrally located for a lot of touristy sight-seeing. The rooms are clean and nice, the bathrooms are great (surprisingly good water pressure), and there is a cute mixer gimmick every day (free pancakes, free sangria, etc), so it's super easy to meet people to go out with and hang it with if you're traveling solo. The staff are super nice, super chill, and super informed. Would definitely recommend!

I was traveling alone for the first time and wasn't quite sure what to do. I'm also kind of a shy person so that can make things a bit more difficult. However, The Times has these daily social events; because of this I met many amazing and interesting people!! The workers at the hostel were quite possibly some of the coolest people ever!! They really make you feel welcome and like you're part of the family. I stayed in a couple different hostels over the course of this week and none of them can compare to The Times. I would especially like to thank Diego for suggesting the free walking tour around Dublin as well as many other things. I learned a lot and really felt like home there. Whenever I get the chance to go back to Dublin, I know I'll be staying here again. Thank you!!!

This is the place young people would love: walking distance from the city centre, evenings organised by the staff, kitchen open 24/7. However, the size of the room for 4 is half of the size of a prison cell.
