  • Isaacs hostel was really cool. Pros: Everyone (staff included) is very friendly and hangs out in the lobby. It's just a short walk to the pubs and the temple bar area. Everything is clean and they have hot water. Only cons is that they only have wifi in the lobby.

  • Very welcoming, I loved the staff! I also felt safe with how they checked everyone when they came in, I also saw a guy get kicked out who was sneaking in. So I knew the staff was diligent about our safety! The breakfast was yummy and the rooms were very clean and nice!

  • Very pleasent stay. Excellent staff. Problems are unresponsibile people who do not care abbout other people privacy. Ventilation in the dorms is not suitable since people het drunk and everything smeels on alcohol and dirty feets.

  • Common rooms are very good, with a nice athmosphere. However, the rooms are noisy (by the railway) and basics, and there are not enough showers. Was a good stay.

  • Our stay in Isaacs was great! The conditions of the hostel were exactly how it is described and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is very good right next to the city center, near tram/luas, marketplaces and a few pubs around. Also, it is in a good walking distance to many touristic points: it only takes a 5 minute walk to O'Connell Street and the Spire of Dublin for example. It is a great place to stay with friends while you are visiting Dublin.

  • The staff is really helpful and well informed. The only issue I had was that I got bug bed bites but they cleaned everything as soon as I reported the issue. Definitely going back there!

  • I brought 2 power adaptors with me. The first one was stolen inside my room, and the second exploded when I put it in the outlet. Thank god no one was hurt, but I was pretty upset about it.
