Times Hostels - Camden Place
Ranked #22 of 120 Speciality Lodging in Dublin
Reviewed 23 June 2017

The location of this place was adequate. In order to enter the building, you had to walk down an alley and past a few doors. Luckily, stores were within walking distance. Then rooms were extremely lackluster. I've been in college dorms that had more area. The pillow cases had very dirty/moldy spots and stains so it was not clean enough to use. There was no way to sit up in the beds. Even if you were 5'3 your head was pressed against the top bunk when you tried to sit up.The length of bunk-beds were the entire length of room. With the two beds in the room, there was only about two feet of walking space across from each other.This narrow path was how you entered the room and entered the bathroom. The shower was actually the best part of the stay. Unfortunately the first time I used it, I had to kill a spider climbing on the wall. The entire stay was even more underwhelming when we came back to the room after a day that was in the 80's and realized there was no A/C or fans. So we sweated all night and were unable to sleep. Another reason that kept us up was due to the excessively loud noise outside which were people who were partying from midnight to after 3 AM. Usually there would be a noise time limit, but not here. They were able to enter the building and we did not here silence till after 4 AM. All in all, do not come to this place unless you are short of money, enjoy stores in walking distance, and don't expect any sort of quality in your stay.

Room Tip: You won't find one here unless you are a backpacker.

Staff at front desk friendly and helpful nice location. But so noisy and we stayed Sunday night. Come 4am music is still blasting from club located behind the hostel. People are screaming outside. They provide ear plugs but these couldn't drown out the extent of the noise levels. Only stay if heavy sleeper or planning to party all night yourself.

We stayed in a double room with ensuite
Good: Clean with decent size bathroom, not much noise from inside the hostel (there was some sort of event where a group of teenagers were staying at the hostel one of the nights and they were extremely loud and disruptive. After they left we had no issues.)
Bad: The worst bed I have slept on in my whole life. Huge roll together with metal springs that can be felt all over the mattress.

Location:
Good - Close to great bars and restaurants, short walk to Grafton Street, Trinity College etc.
Bad - Very close to clubs so it is incredibly loud at night. The music from the clubs isn't the main problem as the double glazed windows help, its the people on the street who make a lot of noise.

Kitchen:
Good - Clean with everything you need
Bad - When the hostel is busy there's isn't enough seating around breakfast and dinner time

Booked based on TA reviews. Terrible. They had some sort of kids camp going on during my stay. Screaming jumping loud kids everywhere all night. Reception could not even control them. Small nightmare really. Kitchen staff setting out breakfast. Asked if I could use the mayo she had in hand for her own breakfast and she said "no it's only for staff". Wow. So rude and stingy. With that said I rarely ever leave a poor review but the vibe here was terrible. Not traveler friendly at all. Would not stay again. There was ONE nice guy that checked me in and that's abt it.

Hostel is near center. Maybe about 15 mins walk. Safe area but very noisy, because it is very close to disco and people is very loud and drunk. I was in 6-bed room. In room you only have beds and nothing more. The bathroom is separate the room bit very clean and spacious. You have breakfast and you can make it by yourself necause there is a kitchen. Everynight staff make some dinner or drink night and it is very funny and it is free. I would stay here again but only if l have frends to stay with me in room.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with friends
