A negative setup time means that the input doesn't have to be stable until after the triggering edge of the clock. Likewise, a negative hold time means the input can change before the clock edge and still be considered valid. It gives you some extra timing leeway.

I'd be surprised if both were negative for the same input and clock edge though!
