great location friendly and accommodating staff clean rooms. clean toilet/shower good facilities wonderful ambience the only down side staying on the top floor (3rd) is that the bed shakes when the train passes by--and noisy, too. but when the train stops operating late night, you'll get some good sleep. highly recommended as a hostel

This was my second time staying at Isaac's (so I clearly liked it enough to stay there again). We stayed in a 14 bed female dorm. Noise level wasn't terrible for a hostel, just banging doors and normal noises of people moving around rather than any loud music or people. No lockers in the room, which I don't love with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was great! Staff were always friendly and helpful. There was 8 of us that went and they made sure that we could get a whole room to ourselves and didn't charge the deposit they normally would do with a large group. Breakfast is pretty basic but can't complain with what you get as... More

I stayed there for one night with my sister and really enjoyed it. The person I had on the phone was really helpful and friendly. The place is very nice to stay, with every facilities needed. We especially loved to have books available, with a cozy place to read ! I would recommend it to anyone staying in Dublin.

After an easy ride on the AirLink bus, you'll find the hostel centrally located to major sites and fun areas of Dublin. The accommodations are nice containing bunk beds and a shower/toilet shared by two rooms. The kitchen and common area are also great and contain most of what you need for cooking and relaxing. Further, the staff was what... More

Great open area in the lobby to meet other travelers. Did the walking tour which was very helpful to get to know Dublin. Staff is very helpful. The only annoying thing was the lockers. The lockers were located in the basement of the hostel. It would've been nice if they were located in the rooms for convenience.

I chose this hostel because the pictures on their website were charming and the location to nearby transportation is wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We could grab breakfast in the kitchen for free if we had to leave early and they let us rent a locker for our luggage when we stayed the night at another hostel. I... More

The staff was incredibly helpful when we needed directions or dinner suggestions. They were also very friendly when we came back, no matter what time of day or night we made it back. Great discount for a really fun pub crawl in Dublin and helped us get a great free walking tour. The room was pretty average for a hostel,... More

We stayed here for a few nights in august. The room we had was very warm at night with no air flow. There was some wifi in our room as we were on the first floor. Bathrooms are basic but clean. Only 3 toilets/showers for each floor. No lockers etc for your belongings in the room, however rooms themselves are... More
