The location is great! Right next to the city centre. Really social with everyone comming to the common room to relax and have a chat. Also a lot of things provided to do for the guests, daily trips around Ireland, pub crawls... Highly recommended!

Isaacs is great compared to other hostels due to their many opportunities to socialize and do things. They even offer free breakfast which is rare. The prices are great when comparing to other places and the staff is helpful.

I booked a 16-bed dorm out of necessity and that can be hit or miss. Unfortunately, I... More

i arrived jet lagged and awake for nearly 48 hours minus a couple naps. The staff was very kind and let me sleep on a couch as I waited for the rooms to be ready. They were easy going and helpful with fun activities to do including tours as well as knowledgeable in giving directions.
