Stayed here as a group of 16 in October. As hostels go it was clean, relatively cheep and lively. It wasn't the easiet place to find, but then we aren't the best at directions either! Staff were generally helpful, but not overly friendly. Some were better than others. The room was clean, as were the toilet and washing facilities. You... More

Isaacs hostel was definitely part of making my trip to Ireland the best ever, such a clean and cosy place and the staff are so friendly and are genuinely interested in helping you, they even helped find my lost friend! The only down to this place is the cold showers however there were warm ones downstairs- problem solved! I would... More

The layout and location of the building are great, however the atmosphere and staff are not. As soon as we got here the guy at the front desk was very rude and continued to be so for the rest of our stay. Most of the people here were reading books and even on a Friday night (in Dublin, remember) there... More

At the time we arrived at Isaac, the guy in the reception explained to us how the hostel worked and etc. He wasn't that happy explaining that, but maybe it's his personality so I can't judge. It's such a big hostel - and if you don't like that, don't even think about booking a room, because you'll get troubled. I'm... More

This was the first time I had been to Dublin and stayed in a hostel. My 3 night stay was well worth the money with free wifi, large kitchen, breakfast included, living room with TV and even a sauna. All the staff were amazing and any questions I asked they were happy to help. I would recommend to stay in... More

Booked at Isaacs on a whim because everything else in Dublin was more or less booked up for dec 30-4th. But this was my luck of the Irish! It's a HUGE hostel but it's so clean, modern, secure and in a great spot. My literal only complaint is that there's no lockers in the rooms, but they do have a... More

Great place if you don't mind cold showers in the middle of winter. Had a private double room which was quite spacious for the price. The free breakfast included was cereal and toast with coffee and juice. The place was clean and staff offered to hold our bags for free upon early check-in. Only complaint is the cold showers which... More

Thanks for your Review - we are so sorry to hear about the showers that must have been really frustrating, we did seem to have an issue one weekend and the staff I hope were able to recommend a later shower that day when the problem was resolved More

We stayed at Isaac's Hostel in Dublin, Ireland in late December of 2014, and were very happy with our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful (special shout out to Andy) and made all three of us, especially our ten year old kid, feel most welcome. The rates were reasonable, and the room was clean and comfortable, with excellent beds.... More

Stayed here for two nights with a friend. Clean hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to Temple bar and the city center. Typical hostel experience, bit on the noisy side but overall enjoyable

After staying in a really nice hostel in London, my expectations may have been set too high. Upon arrival I was advised to shower as the water would be cut off the following day (I understand that it's out of their control) for repairs. So once I settled in, I went to shower. The shower wasn't hot at all -... More
