The Times Hostel - College Street

Dublin City Centre, Dublin

The Times Hostel has modern, simple accommodation close to Trinity College, Grafton Street, Temple Bar and O'Connell Street. All bedrooms are en suite and feature new showers and toilets.

The hostel has free Wi-Fi and free 24-hour luggage storage. The 24-hour friendly reception offers local information, with complimentary city maps and travel guides. I stayed there 3 days during Christmas, and the hostel was great with an excellent location, but more important things was how they treated us, on December 25, they give us a Christmas dinner with wine and dessert and everything for free, We really appreciated it because that day every restaurant or pub in Dublin was closed so get some food was complicated. I am very thankful with them , for sure I will back there if I come back to Dublin

Abigail's Hostel

Temple Bar, Dublin

Abigail's hostel has private rooms and shared dormitories for budget-conscious travellers. Each room has an en suite shower and toilet. Abigail's has communal areas, free Wi-Fi, free bed linen and imposes no curfew. There is also a self-catering kitchen and vending machines. The room for two was so much better than I expected therefor the value for money was good. It was quiet, warm, clean, well equipped, etc. Also, the tall gentleman at the front desk with the glasses was so great, I enjoyed chatting with him briefly! If the staff are happy and professional, it makes the experience so much better. The location is central, and as a female staying there you will feel very safe and secure :)

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
