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.

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!

09 March 2010

Liked: This place is situated directly next to Trinity College in a very nice area of the city. For the Dublin average it was also quite cheap, but still good. You didn't even have to ask for wifi and instructions were very good. Though there were some downsides like the bathrooms not being very clean just shortly after check-in and breakfast buffet not being provided with food until the end. So you might go to breakfast early to actually still get something to eat.

Liked: The staff was wonderfully helpful and the beds here are wonderful! That might seem like a trivial point, but after weeks of traveling you come to enjoy things like a comfortable bed instead of the wafer thin mattresses that the hostels usually have...
