I thought that my stay at Isaacs Hostel was great. There were some difficulties with the room keys and the bedroom floors were squeaky, but I felt like the hostel and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. It is situated in a great location for exploring Dublin by foot. I feel like this hostel would be best for young... More

It was our first time to stay at a hostel and we were impressed. We weren't expecting too much as we were only paying so little for the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. The common area was always full of life. The room and bathroom was clean. The only thing that we didn't like was the location. It took... More

The staff make this place what it is and they are friendly and engaging. The kitchen is great; decent size and generally more than one of each appliance. Rooms are simple and the shared bathrooms are only shared between a small number of people. They are clean and new. Safety seemed good with key cards at entry doors and then... More

Typical hostel amenities. Very clean and modern shower facilities that are gender split which is important for a lot of people. Good location not far from touristy spots. The staff and atmosphere is very friendly and you can always find someone doing something at night to tag along with. It is a tad small but has free breakfast which is... More

I stayed in Isaacs Hostel twice and I just loved it. It might get loud sometimes but the atmosphere is just fantastic! They offer a great amount of activities where you can meet other travelers. They also have free breakfast and the staff is really helpful when it comes to organise trips. I would stay here again any time :)

Not a bad place overall, but could have been more accommodating Stayed as part of a group. We were not allowed to check in individually had to wait for all the party to arrive (although most arrive together on the same flight, a few people got the ferry and weren’t getting in till mid afternoon) which was a bit of...

Isaacs is conveniently located and quite inexpensive. Free wifi and breakfast; walking tours, pub crawls and middle of the night airport transfers arranged for you. The bathrooms were wonderful - recently renovated. Only negative thing I could say was that the soundproofing in the rooms is non existant - we could hear every step someone made in the room above...

Many thanks for your great review . We do offer earplugs should other guests disturb you in a dorm which is worth bearing in mind for repeat business More

Stayed at Isaac's last week for 5 nights. It's a nice hostel but i'ts not unforgetable. I was there in the Easter holidays so it was quite busy/crowded. The rooms and beds are clean but there's nothing there besides bed bunks and coat hangers. It would be nice to have some lockers, chairs and table there. In front of my... More

Absolutely the best hostel I have stayed at. Was in a 6 bed dorm and thankfully had great roommates. Had a toilet and shower right outside the room which was nice. Staff were always very helpful and just always seemed like they were really loving life. The room was large for a hostel which was really great as a few... More
