I loved my stay here. Everyone had answers to my questions and were always ready to help me! :-)

If you're in Dublin for a party, then this is the place to go. Unfortunately all the negatives that come with a party are included. There were empty beer bottles on the floor in the room, and there were people sleeping the common room couches throughout the night and in the morning. The location was pretty good and the staff were great, but it needs to be cleaned more often.

Good atmosphere and everything. Good service. Just would suggest better ventilation in rooms (understand that are just during summer though). My room was next to the rail way so woke up several times in the morning - and there was no way to sleep with the window closed. Seriously. But if you get lucky not to get a room close to the rail you'll be absolutely fine. The lockers areEUR 2 a day and the WiFi works well in public areas. Breakfast was good (toast, butter, eggs, jam, juice, cereal...)

Everything about the hostel was great; the staff, location, atmosphere and facilities. However, we were staying in room 119 (14 bed mixed dorm) and the temperature in the room felt like we were staying within Mount Doom. Even with the fan on and window open the heat was so heavy and it was impossible to sleep. I would love to stay again but not in a room of that humidity again.

Not enough plugs in the room, Musty smell in the room, temperature of shower not adjustable, other than that it was okay

Solid! Good staff and great location. It is right next to the bus station, if you go from the docks.

The thing to keep in mind with this hostel is that it is directly next to the tram, which passes by every five to ten minutes, so the noise level is quite extensive. The shower areas are far too small, with only two sinks and a couple toilets for an entire floor (there were ladies crowding over each other trying to brush their teeth at night). The Wifi didn't work for me either. All in all, it's an ok place if you're fine with large dormitory-style. It is conveniently located

If I did not feel like I was sleeping beside a train track every night then the hostel would have been amazing, but due to that experience I give it a three out of five.

I was really impressed with Isaacs. It was clean and staff were super friendly and helpful! really the only downside was that there were no lockers in the rooms but staff are able to lock your stuff up for you. As well there is no Wifi in the rooms, only in main areas. She sheets on the beds were all white which was wonderful as you can tell they are clean! All in All, it was a great experience and I would absolutely stay with them again.

I really enjoyed staying here. The hostel was very clean and comfortable. I woild definitely stay here again. The only thing I didn't like was that there was no wifi in the rooms. You had to go to the main floor or basement for internet.

The staff were incredibly helpful and nice. If you choose to stay north of the liffey, this is the perfect hostel for you. I do have some suggestions for the hostel though. It would be nice to have wifi in the rooms, as well as lockers on each floor and/or room other than just in the basement. I would also suggest having more plugs in each room or at least a surge protector so there's enough plugs for each person. Also small lamps/lights by the bed would be nice.

Isaacs Hostel is a good place to stay in Dublin. Very close to the main bus station and to the mai nareas of Dublin. The room was clean. However, there was no air conditioning in the 10 Bed dorm and only one small window for fresh air. The staff provided a fan which made the situation onyl a little better. But beside that a good hostel with a clean kitchen bathrooms.

Location alright: not in too touristy TempleBar, yet central (like everything in Dubliln). Our room (3-bed private no. 104) was located 1st floor just above the kitchen, hence, it was pretty noisy in the morning. Street was quiet. Bath rooms, room, towles, bed linen, kitchen everything was very clean. They seemed pretty good security wise, even the luggage storage had proper locks (for free). The place is pretty big giving it a bit of an anonymous atmosphere. Staff was friendly and there 24/7.

Okay overall fine for hostel and for price but some negatives listed below: 1) tram runs right by the hostel, really loud pretty late into the night 2) hostel is super hot and they won't say so anything when people comment on it 3) music in common areas is pretty bad, everyone had headphones in 4) wifi only in common areas and not reliable 5) no lockers in room, can pay for overnight in lobby but limited supply
