I’ve just arrived home after a four night stay in Dublin, and stayed in Times Hostel Camden Place with my best friend.
I can’t speak highly enough of our experience there. It’s on the 16A bus route from the airport, and buses into Temple Bar and O’Connell Street are frequent enough, with the stop being a minute’s walk from the hostel.
Our room was clean, with ample space, (we stayed in a 4 bed dorm) and had comfortable beds and a power shower ensuite. The communal kitchen is split into two parts, which gets very busy in the mornings (especially weekends, it’s worth getting up that much earlier to beat the homemade pancake rush). There was always enough seating between the two dining areas and the living room, and the free tea and coffee was a lovely perk we made full use of.
The staff were not only friendly and beyond helpful, it was like taking the best bits of being at home with the best bits of being in student halls, and worked really well. Ali in particular took really good care of us, (I came back to an extra pillow when I mentioned I had a cold coming and needed to sit up in bed) always found time for my trivial problems (I still say she was working magic on the phone handset) as well as being knowledgeable about the city itself and happy help out with whatever she could, ie booking a table in a restaurant or just having a chat. A special mention too, for Emma, who is relaxed, positive and sociable making an excellent addition to the team. (Some great memories, cheers!)
To finish, it’s the atmosphere in the hostel is what stays with you. It’s friendly, informal and a pleasure to come back to, a real feather in Dublin’s cap.
