The staff was super friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, and it is pretty close to the city center.

Very happy with Isaacs hostel. We were little surprised that there is not internet in the room, it is OK but for people who needs work on email ( private,focus) not great. Anyway we were happy there :)

the staff is very friendly and very helpful. It's clean and tidy but the interior is a little bit old and used. the kitchen could need some more knives that deserves the name knife.

Overall it's a nice hostel to stay however the only downside that I need to highlight is the Wifi which is only made available on the ground floor.

Hôtel bien situé, très bon rapport qualité/prix. Juste un peu bruyant.

Great hostel. Everything you could need. Only bad part was that the lockers were in the basement and that wifi doesnt work past the first floor.

Had a great stay at Isaacs - unfortunately loud music played all night from out the street, but I don't think that was anything the hostel could have helped. A couple of toilets were clogged, showers were a tiny bit dirty, normal things that were best kind once I went to use again. Will be coming back!

Fairly good atmosphere that makes it easy to meet people. Wasn't too impressed with the facilities though. The luggage storage/lockers were in the basement and we stayed on the third floor...an annoying trek if you forget something in your bag, or want to retrieve something in the morning. Also there are only 2 or so plugs in the room, and not next to beds. Had to spend a lot of time charging up during the day in the common rooms. Really inconvenient.

This is a backpacker's hostel for sure. Lot's of character. Warm and lively common room near the reception area. Very nice (quieter) downstairs area, game room, and movie lounge. Come here if you enjoy lively hostel experiences. That being said…the facilities are pretty old. The floors squeak a lot. Window leaked water. The showers didn't have area to put dry clothes (no hooks or shelves). But I would still recommend Isaacs. Good location (near bus station) and nice hotel pubs nearby.

Stayed in 14 bed dorm and was a bit hit and miss with who you shared with as had 1 very pleasant quiet night and 1 when we barely got any sleep with people coming and going all night. However communal areas are good and staff and guests were friendly. Good cooking facilities as well. In general good hostel, but paid similar prices for ones with smaller dorm rooms.

Hostel ist sauber und gepflegt. Die sind pragmatisch eingerichtet. Es wäre gut wenn jedes Bett noch einen Schrank oder zumindest n Regal hätte um seine Sachen nicht f den Boden legen zu müssen. Der Boden knarrt sehr laut wodurch man immer wach wird wenn jemand rein oder raus geht. Alles in allem jedoch völlig in Ordnung.

We stayed three nights and were not able to sleep at all because of the noise! The walls are paper thins and people make A LOT of noise at every hour of the night! Some people even entered in our room to try to take a bed. This happened twice to us and we were not the only costumer who got their bed ''stolen'' by strangers in the middle of the night. We tried to talk to the manager about the situation but the employee did not want to call him and he did not look to care

Great location - just minutes from the main bus station, and only about 15 minute walk to the city center (Temple Bar, etc.) The staff was helpful and friendly. We had a private room (me and my female friend), and the room was great. Our only complaint was that the halls were very noisy in the morning - doors slamming and people walking on the noisy floor. But Isaacs did offer ear plugs for 50 cents advertised everywhere, which we took advantage of and helped considerably.
