Super Hostel für junge Leute. Teilweise etwas laut. Zentrale Lage (busbahnhof und innenstadt in 2min zu erreichen). Wir können es durchaus weiter empfehlen!

It was fine, but quite big and busy. Also you need to provide more for breakfast.

Thanks for posting your review. Breakfast is only a free light breakfast we offer to our guests. if we provide more unfortunately we would have to charge more and we don't want to do that.

Los aseos y duchas están fuera de la habitación pero son nuevos y limpios, así que excelente. La cocina es excelente también, el personal muy amable y atento, el desayuno bueno y los huevos duros son recién hechos, aunque no los ponen siempre. Hay bicicletas para alquilar, sauna... Lo único malo es que en las literas no hay ni luz personal ni medios para cargar tu móvil, cámara de fotos, pc... nada! Un fallo gordo. Es lo único.

You need to pay for you lockers also if you have your own lock! 2 € pro day. Not every staff member is helpful.

Sorry you had a few issues.

The atmosphere was so much fun! Everybody mingles in the different common areas and the building itself is really neat. I got bug bites all over my legs and arms while staying here, so I think it might have been bed bugs, but no one else in the room got them. Other than that it was a very enjoyable stay and one of our favorite hostels!

Delighted you enjoyed your stay. If you were out at night near a green or field you might have got bitten by midges - they are awful at this time of the year. We have a very strict pest control system in place at the hostel so I doubt it was bed bugs.

Staff was great and it was in a really interesting old building. Will definitely stay there again upon my return to Dublin. The alley it is located in has a few shady characters hanging around, but even late at night I never felt threatened.

Super endroit qui peut surprendre au premier abord mais qui se révèle être un bon plan : une usine sans en être une !

Nous n'avons passé qu'une courte nuit dans cette auberge, suffisant pour constater que nous nous étions fait entuber sur la précédente auberge où nous avions passé 7 nuits, et que Isaacs Hostel est nettement mieux.

Great hostel. Nice clean rooms. Great common areas and facilities. The only issue is that our room was right near the train line.. But I would still recommend staying here.

Great location close to the bus stop and within walking distance of all sites. Clean, comfortable place with really funny, friendly staff and an atmosphere conducive to meeting other travelers. Breakfast wasn't much, just toast and cereal with coffee. Wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of all the social events and check out the spa!

Der perfekte Ort für Backpacker um Gleichgesinnte zu treffen. Freundliches Personal, tolle Stimmung, gute Ausstattung in allen Bereichen egal ob Schlafsäle, Bad, Küche etc.

La sua posizione è ottima , la cucina dovrebbe essere organizzata meglio, con un po più di spazio per mangiare , e non mangiare dove altri leggono o parlano, la sala per fare colazione è su strada e quindi entrano persone che non sono dell ostello .

the only problem we had was the shower was really tiny and my travelling buddy is 6'6" and couldn't fit in it. which was really funny for me, buy not so much for him! loved the place.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. I wonder would our other showers have been better for your friend.

+ Gute Lage in der Stadt und ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis - Viel los in den Gemeinschaftsräumen - Keine Schließfächer in den Zimmer bzw. zusätzliche Kosten für Schließfächer und Safes

The bathrooms and rooms were very clean and well kept. Everyone was friendly but they didn't foster much of a community there. It was a very average clean experience. Absolutely nothing bad to say about it.
