stayed in a private room for 6 days. it's a large hostel with a young atmosphere, so expect music in the main common room and lots of teen guests loudly trying to impress each other. my room was pretty great, tidy and spacious. the bathrooms in my floor where few and gym-style (with doors in between showers), but still very easy to use. the only problem i faced was said teen guests slamming bedroom and floor doors all day and night long. tip: for some quiet time, go to the 'library room'.

If you can't handle a lot of people, this place isn't for you. But it had great entertainment rooms, good lockers with locks, everything was cleaned every day, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. It's a fun place. Great for making friends.

Good hostel: the staff is helpfull and the atmosphere is excellent. The good choice if you are looking for fun! The WiFi service is poor and in the bathrooms there are no windows and little space.

Not a bad hostel. The building is so old though, that the floorboards were so creaky, it was almost impossible to go into the rooms at night without waking someone up. They need more hooks in the showers too so you have somewhere to put your stuff. The wifi kept cutting out and it was not available in the rooms. Nice big kitchen though and it was close to most things.

Thanks for your comments. It is an old building alright but we hope we make up for it with our service and little extras.

Stayed for two nights. Decent facilities. Great location to take the airport shuttle and near the bus station. 5 to 10 min walk to main road. Would be great if they have wifi in the rooms.

Thanks for your comments. Glad you liked the hostel. We don't have wifi in the bedrooms because we want people to do it the old fashioned way and talk face to face.

Les chambres sont petites, je n'avais pas de prise électrique. Le personnel ne fait aucun effort pour comprendre et satisfaire le client, ils sont juste la pour faire des sous. Les toilettes n'étaient pas propre, les chambres non plus, heureusement que je n'y suis reste qu'une nuit.

A bit large and impersonal, but perfectly fine for staying a couple of nights. It's clean, the staff is nice, the vaulted basement with desks, games, sauna and laundry is very nice.

Alle Dienste und angegebenden Leistungen sind zufriedenstellend, wenn auch nicht perfekt. Die sanitären Einrichtungen könnten meiner Meinung nach besser sein. Schade finde ich, dass ich in Sachen Atmosphäre etwas enttäuscht wurde. Ich habe in meiner Zeit dort (Anfang September) keinerlei Kontakte im Hostel geknüpft. Es war ein großes Kommen und Gehen, fast wie im Hotel - viele Gruppen und wenige allein reisende. Nettes Personal, gutes Angebot an Einrichtung (Küche, Waschraum, Ruheraum, etc.)..

It would be a good idea we can regulate shower's temperature and a few more hooks to hang clothes and towel at the same time.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks of your positive comments - we will look and see what we can do with more hooks.

Not having wi-fi in the rooms was a bit annoying but the communal areas were very nice so it wasn't as bad as it could have been at another hostel. Staff very helpful, location was good, rooms pretty spacious

L'emplacement de l'auberge est très bien situé. Cependant le rapport qualité-prix n'est pas terrible: 21 euros le lit dans une chambre de 8 plus 2 euros par jour pour le locker. Les douches et les toilettes sont communes et le tram passe toutes les 5 minutes à côté des chambres. Heureusement, le personnel est très sympathique...

The hostel was great! Had a really fun time, and the daytime and evening staff were absolutely amazing. The over night staff was consistently very rude to me, and every other person I talked to about it, each and every night though... which is a bummer. Besides that everything was great.

Bien en general, sólo que un poco ruidoso.

Unfortunately I lost my flight and couldn't stay at Isaac's, but some friends went there and told me only good things about this hostel! When I back to Dublin, probably I will book again at Isaac's!
