Great stay, staff were energetic and pleasant... This was my first stay at a hostel and I had no idea what to expect but I was pleased with the value and the rooms were perfect for what we needed. Wifi only worked in common area and the reading area which was nice because it gave you a chance to socialize... More

This past weekend I stayed in Dublin at Isaacs Hostel. I went on the Cliffs of Moher bus tour, which was a 15-minute walk away from the hostel. I wouldn't necessarily recommend traveling here alone. The area around the hostel is not well-lit. If you're taking a cab from the airport to this hostel, it's about 24 euros. I stayed... More

The hostel itself is lovely and the staff are nice but the guy I dealt with was cheeky. I checked on the internet before I came here to check for beds etc and the price was about 16euro so I was shocked to hear the man quote '26 euro' to me. As a frequent traveller 26 euro is a crazy... More

We had a very nice stay 10 nights at this hostel. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the cleanliness, the showers and toilets were always washed in the morning. It is very well located, we did everything on foot. They even provided us with a map. We had a fairly large room. There is a kitchen to prepare meals, and another place... More

Staff were very friendly and even waived our fee for locker storage. Staff also went the extra mile to help us find our way to Dublin's Heuston station by tram for an early train trip. Rooms and bed were clean. Hostel was quite noisy, especially at night and on weekends, so not the best place to go for sleep. Given... More

We stayed here for 7days, me and husband and 4kids. Really nice staff, always willing to inform and give new ideas for visiting, as well as really helpful with complicated busses etc. Very quiet rooms with good beds. Breakfast more than enough and tea and coffee free all day long. I surely recommand !!!

Just here for one night. Very friendly staff who could decipher my travel-weary gibberish (I was very tired at check in!), seemed quite happy to help in any way they could. Looks cool, the entry area is very open and just generally aesthetically pleasing. The dorm was actually bigger than I thought, and the beds comfy enough. Was quite loud... More

Was a good place to stay little bit of a walk to the nightlife but really close to public transport which is handy. Free breakfast was handy but just remember the place is next to a train line so it can be rather noisy if your room is on that side of the building.
