  • 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!

  • It's a very big hostel, with people coming and going. I only stayed one night. The dorm was good and the breakfast as well. The staff was very friendly, and the toilets and showers clean. You could lock your bag in the cellar, and the security seemed good enough.

  • Take advantage of the friendly staff here and you will have a great stay. Free walking tour was excellent, pub crawl was fun. Young crowd, and everyone we met was friendly as could be. On the north side of the Liffey in a decidedly less touristy area, which is nice. Had a very comfortable stay. The free breakfast is also pretty nice.
