We stayed in the Times Hostel over NY 2011/12... On arrival the staff were very helpful. Our room was spacious with a clean private bathroom. We didn't need anyplace fancy, just somewhere to leave our stuff and sleep. It proved, however, to be a great base to explore Dublin for the three days we were there. It was out of the town a little, but this meant we got to explore pubs and bars away from the dreaded Temple Bar area! Few local pubs we explored were incrediblely friendly and great place to have a pint of Guinness! Breakfast was included in the reasonable price but every morning we got to the kitchen (around 8.30/9am) it was quite crowded and there was only rather unappetising leftovers for us to chose from. We instead went into Dublin and ate out.. No problem for us as it was a short stay. If you are backpacking thoughand you are staying for an extended amount of time, maybe plan to get up early to enjoy what I assume is a tasty breakfast!! One thing to note, we were in a bedroom above the kitchen area and we had exceedingly noisy neighbours. We had to bang on the wall several times in the very early hours.. Although it is usually us making the noise so we were quite forgiving! We went to Temple Bar during the day and loved it... at night however it was NOT our scene - lots of 18 years with very little on and too much beer in their system! A little out of the area there are some amazing bars.. Dublin is an amazing cultural city. We went to a great comedy night at The Stag (I think it was called) and also a fab jazz bar somewhere between Temple and Camden! We spent NYE in the Globe bar.. no charge and great atmosphere! Brilliant stay and Times was a great find as was very reasonable given that it was New Year! Would reccommend!
