Not air enough in the bedroom of 8 persons ! Service is OK, staff is very helpful and friendly ! Kitchen, toilets, dining room are OK too. The situation, in city center is very pleasant. But it is necessary to have air enough to sleep with 7 persons in the bedroom. Or, we couldn't open the window...

All in all, it's not a bad hostel for a couple nights and if you're staying in either the 8 bed dorm or less. However my boyfriend and I stayed for a week and got to see the full range. At one point there was an intoxicated naked man who was stumbling around in our dorm room. Albeit it was... More

Isaacs Hostel is somewhere I would recommend to anyone going to Dublin, the central ish location made navigating the city easy, the staff were helpful, the free breakfast made mornings much easier, and the facilities were to a high standard. The only thing I would say against the hostel is that the wall partitions are quite thin, so if you... More

We loved the walking tour and the pub crawl. The hostel is near the bus station to take you back to the ferry or airport or to anywhere else in Ireland. The hostel accommodations were average but the atmosphere makes up for it. We ended up going back through Dublin and didn't think twice about staying again

The only good thing was that it was that it had a sauna and the bus from the airport links directly. The wifi only works in the reception lobby so the place was over crowded. Even the basement common area had no internet. It was far from most of the sightseeing points of interests and pubs. When the wifi wasn't... More

We are so very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay . We are not sure why you could not get Wifi as it is free throughout the hostel including bedrooms and all common areas . Our staff will normally help if you are having difficulty connecting ( as some phones can need settings adjusting) so if we... More

I was only there one full day and two nights. But the layout of this hostel truly promotes togetherness and community. All walks of life stay here. Guys and Gals who work there are wonderful, highly recommend!

The location of this hostel is great. It is literally 2-5 mins away from the center of Dublin (walking). The only thing is, if you will need a taxi before 5 AM (they offer services starting at 3:30AM) , you will have to ask very early in the day (the day before).

Great hostel, everything you need. Location wasn't the best as it is quite a walk from the nightlife but if you are catching a plane into Dublin or leaving on one it is quite handy as the airport shuttle bus is only a few minute walk away

I found checking in to be very easy, the room was spotless and comfortable and the location of the hostel couldn't be better as it's right beside the Luas an the bus station. All the other facilities are well kept and there is a friendly and calm feel to the place.

Conveniently located hostel, very welcoming and friendly staff, good common area, clean facilities. Great for a night or two in Dublin. The crowd was on the younger side but there wasn't very much late night noise.
