Liked: This place was amazing!! Amenities were fantastic, rooms were clean, quiet, safe and comfortable. Shower was hot and water pressure was great. Right across the street from Trinity College, right around the corner from the pub district, lots of shopping and public transportation. And the front desk staff are just lovely. Would definitely stay here again!!! Highly recommended.

Liked: Great place for an awesome time in Dublin! Stayed in a 6 bed dorm, really clean, great comfortable beds, very good shower! Huge communal kitchen, which was great for cooking and the free breakfasts in the morning. Lots of opportunities to meet people! Had an absolutely amazing time in Dublin, some incredible nights out, can't wait to come back! Strongly recommended for a great location and cool atmosphere.

Joseph Shaw

Liked: Great location. Right across from Trinity College and the Garda station. Minutes walk from Temple Bar district and two steps from Doyles Pub. Dorm room was large with ensuite. Kitchen and "chill" room where also very large. Security was pretty good. Very clean. Great staff and overall good character to the whole place. Felt more like staying at a friends place than a hostel

Liked: Actually I liked every single detail about The Times Hostel and I'm really glad it was the one I chose amon many others. Perfect place, perfect location, absolutelly clean, wonderful staff, specially the girls at reception - Leah, Cassandra and Catriona - , always ready to help, to hear you, very welcoming people from the minute you step inside the building. Free internet (which is great), nice breakfast, with fruits on weekends and free pancakes on sundays. I trully recomend The Times Hostel, and I'm sure everyone will be as satisfied as I was. I took a 6 bed female dorm ensuite. Room 18 - my "home" in Dublin. If you need to know anything else and think I can help you, just get in touch - zareladiaz@gmail.com.

Customer review

16 April 2010

Liked: The hostel itself was nice but the staff had a horrible policy of assigning rooms alphabetically instead of by who booked the hostel first. Even though I booked my room 2 months in advance, my friends and I were split up since my last name begins with a W. Then, they assigned us in the rooms wrong and two of us were woken up in the middle of the night and accused ot being in the wrong place! Instead of correcting the problem in their computers, they threw out my friend's towel and washcloth from home and made her bed, therefore kicking her out of the room!

Liked: Enjoyable experience: other customers were friendly and respectful, everything promised was given.I had to cancel one of two beds within the cancellation timeframe (48 hrs) and was obligated to pay for the other bed according to their rules, but when I paid I was only charged for one. Yay!
