  • The I stayed was under the train tracks... It's very noisy! The rooms had a terrible smell!! There is no socket in the rooms by the side of the beds... Also, if you want to stay here, bring you own toilet paper...

  • The hostel was extremely good. The staff was helpful and kind. The location is perfect. Close to everything. Easily reach everything by walk. Any time I need to visit Dublin, i'll go to the Isaacs Hostel!

  • Excellent hostel, super clean, really modern, amazing atmosphere. Staff sorted any problem I had quickly. Only real complaint is that there wasn't lockers in the rooms and only behind the reception.

  • Isaac's could not have been more perfect for what I needed. Right around the corner from where the bus from the airport drops off, super close to all the good bars and shopping (the staff have good recommendations). The common room is very cozy (has a fireplace) and is always playing good music. They offer lockers (that are huge, can fit 2 big suitcases) to keep valuables in that you get access to 24/7. Extremely friendly/helpful staff. The environment is very lively, comfortable, and relaxing.

  • Absolutely love this place! I have stayed in many hostels and this is for sure the top three! The staff are excellent, huge hangout areas with lots to do in them, very easy to meet people. The bathrooms are also large and CLEAN! Will definitely stay here again!

  • This is a central, big and modern hostel with a nice atmosphere. The rooms and showers were great but the whole hostel was really hot. It was like all walls were heated or something. You were able to borrow a fan. Unfortunately, we couldn't open our window much so it got really hot at night.

  • The atmosphere in this hostel is perfect! I was so tired in the last day of my tour in Dublin that I decided to stay in hostel. I stayed in lounge and chatted with different people for all day long. An unforgettable experience!

  • Everything about Isaacs that the staff had control over was great. The bathrooms were clean and accessible. The room was spacious enough. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was...existent! The power outlets were linked to the overhead light which was a pain since I couldn't charge my phone over night.

  • I don't know about the others, but worst dormitory ever: the dreaded room 74! With a window on street level that you can't open. Was sharing it with a group of 7 italian guys, it was hot like in an oven, and it smelled like sport showers. You felt like you would choke during the night, even if we kept the barely working ventilation and a big fan on... which of course made an awful sound. Horrible nights!

  • The vibe in the hostel is great. The staff are friendly and very helpfull. The few questions I did have were answered really well. The rooms, showers and bathrooms were also quite clean. The only point of (minor) critique I have is that the beds were rought too sleep on. But all in all, it was a great stay in a friendly and fun hostel!
