  • 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.

  • The bathrooms are not very clean. The bed are quite uncomfortable. And when I opened the blanket on my bed, something (hopefully just dust) went all over the place. This is not unusual for hostels, at least not in my experience. But despite all of this, the staff was unbelievably friendly. I really appreciated all of their help.

  • Right in the city. Easy to get to places. The staff is really friendly and nice. They offer a free walking tour and a shuttle to the aiport for 6 euros. Don't expect much for the breakfast, though. It is really basic: toats and tea/coffee. There are a few supermarkets nearby, not expensive at all, where you could buy food.

  • lockers next to the bed would be really perfect (saw that in other hostel in Galway, loved it), Would give an Excellent on security. The kitchen seems too small for the people there, I do not feel like home there.

  • I had a perfect stay. Used the washing and dryer machine, vending machines were great, lounge area with couches was perfect, the desk area had great internet reception, the kitchen was a bit tight but big enough, they had plenty of seating in the common area. My only complaint was that I would wake up earlier than my roommates and head downstairs at 7am. The hardwood floors are insanely loud. I woke them up with every step. I would def stay here again and probably every time I come to Dublin.

  • 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...

  • 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.
