Great hostel, close to everything, helpful staff
I stayed here as a solo traveler for three nights in a 6-bed female en-suite and had a pleasant experience. My room was in the back so it was pretty quiet at night. There was some kind of generator outside our window, but it was fine if we closed the window. Breakfast was €3 and it was self-serve with simple cereal, bread for making toast or sandwiches, fruit, juice, tea, and coffee. There was also a laundry room on the third floor with two washers and two dryers. The location is convenient, close to Temple Bar and Trinity College. Most other places were walking distance. Room was very spacious and lockers were big enough to fit all my stuff. My only complaint is that the floor was a bit dusty, but nothing major.

First night we had old worn broken-down mattresses on our beds, but after we talked to the staff, the mattresses were replaced with new ones (they had been in the process of replacing all the mattresses but said they had not gotten to our room yet prior to our first night's stay).

Don't expect much it's a hostel!
Rooms were unpleasant. It's super small, dusty, and a bit smelly. I also got bed bug bites. However, staff members were extremely helpful and welcoming. If it wasn't for them (and the location) I would probably rate this place 1 star. Location wise, it's pretty much close to most tourist attractions (i.e., Trinity College, Stephen's Green Park, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Temple Bar, Guinness, etc). Dublin bikes are highly recommended so you can explore the city.

Times Hostel Dublin
Very uncomfortable mattress(it had been split into 4 pieces to be brought in) and the room was right above a bar that stayed open till at least 2am. It seemed expensive for what we got(an ensuite double), but compared to hotels in that neighborhood it was a steal. You are paying for the location with this hostel. Great staff though!

The Perfect Hostel
This hostel was perfect!! My girlfriend and I are relatively novice hostel travelers, we wanted something cheap and authentic but also clean and comfortable. Had our own room ensuite and it was perfect. Small but clean, comfortable and private. Staff was friendly and attentive. People we met were nice. If I was single I would have had no problem staying in dorm style room but it was worth the $ to have our own space. If you want new, posh hotel then this probably isn't for you. But other than that I don't know how you could not like it. You will not find a better location in Dublin. Centrally located and within walking distance of everything you want to see in the city. Thanks Times Hostel!!!! If we ever get to come back to Dublin you will definitely be seeing us again!
