Communal kitchen, extremely well equipped, where you can prepare food/hot drinks and also socialise - most evenings free attraction in the kitchen - Tuesday was wine and cheese (Wednesday was to be free dinner!) people of all...

The staff were friendly and welcoming. However the rooms are up lots of stairs which was not advertised and the room was absolutely freezing. A real shame because the location was really handy, close to both temple bar and o Connell street

Perfect location at budget price! Rooms are basic but clean and spacious and you shouldn't care about the room anyway when in Dublin as you shouldn't be in it for long! Staff really welcoming and happy to help. Will go back.

The staff at this hostel are so helpful and accommodating. For anyone who has stayed at a hostel or hotel with miserable staff members, you will know this can make or break your trip. The staff at Times College Street could not have been more helpful throughout my trip. Location is great - rooms are comfortable and the beds are...

This hostel is extremely accessible to the main parts of the city. That part was great! However, compared to other hostels, this one felt really impersonal. It just seemed to attract people who had no interest in talking to each other. Each evening there is a free food event. I was there for the ice cream event and the wine...

Stayed for 4 nights and it was awesome. The localization is great, you can walk everywhere. Our room was really cosy and clean, and so was our bathroom. You have to pay for breakfast, but it is definitely worth it because you can choose among a lot of things, and you'd spend way more if you grabbed a coffee and...

It was awesome. The room was really big (usually hostels offer a small room) . There was an aisle going to the bathroom where you could get dressed, make up, etc. It was really comfortable. I had a small problem with a broken cage, but the staff quickly solved it. The kitchen is really cool too, a nice place to...

This is a hostel of extremes: it has extremely good things and extremely bad ones. As for the good ones, the location is perfect. It's close to everything: Temple Bar, the Liffey, Connolly and Tara train stations, Trinity College, O'Connell Street, Trinity College, the points where tour buses departs... everything. And in that location all of the places to stay...

Simply the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Dublin is one of my favourite cities on earth, but my stay was a profoundly lonely time for me. The loveliest of people congregate here and it changed my trip and my life. More than a hostel, I promise. Can't wait to get back. Make sure to participate in all the nightly...
