This is in a great place and a great place to meet new people. Had a lot of fun. Also easy to get to the airport and centre of town.

I have recently stayed at Isaacs Hostel, and it was perhaps one of the loudest Hostels I have ever stayed in. It doesn't attract your average backpackers, but rather big school groups.

Isaac's was great. Wish the WiFi was in the entire building and not just in the common area downstairs. The staff, especially Martina, was amazing. Very helpful with nearby food recommendations, what to do around the city and information about the shoot wings at the hostel. The bathrooms were very clean and kept that way. I would definitely stay again.

Der Aufenthalt war sehr schön! Vor allem die Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend! Die Gemeinschaftsräume waren sehr gemütlich und einladend. Nur ein paar Ablageflächen oder Regale in den Duschen und Zimmern wären toll!

Ist auf jeden Fall ein cooles hostel. Wir mussten allerdings innerhalb von 2 Nächten umziehen und landeten dann in einem Zimmer, direkt vor den bahngleisen. Nich so toll. Aber ansonsten is es sauber. Sind viele interessante, internationale Leute da. Die Kerle an der Rezeption sind meist freundlicher als die Mädels :) gibt keinen Aufzug, also schleppen angesagt. Und es gibt die beste Butter ever :)

Great location in the city! Staff were helpful and friendly. Noisey at the weekends as to be expected but they do provide ear plugs, which did the trick! It was a tad expensive for a Hostel but that could just be Dublin as a city! We really enjoyed our stay on a whole and would recommend it to friends.

The hostel is ok! The beds and the bathroom were ok. There's no lift, so be prepared to use the stairs! The staff was friendly. One small detail: they made us did check-in/out process twice. Great facilities!

Temperatur in den Gängen zu den Zimmern zu warm. Teilweise zu starker Lärm durch Schulklassen auf Klassenfahrt.

Helpful staff, pretty close to city, nice atmosphere. Room incredibly noisy though-right next to a railway bridge and could see train passengers(and vice versa)

Excelente ubicación, junto a la estación de autobuses Busaras y estación de tren de Connelly. Gran ambiente y muy buenos espacios comunes (sofás, mesa de ping pong, mesas...) . Lo peor, hay poco espacio en la habitación para dejar las cosas. Y el agua de la ducha estaba excesivamente caliente, casi insoportable.

No geral foi uma boa estadia. Como pontos fortes destaco o pessoal de serviço, o pequeno almoço, a limpeza nos quartos e balneários e o tamanho dos cacifos que se podem alugar. Como pontos fracos assinalo o calor intenso que se sentia principalmente na zona dos balneários. Os duches só têm torneira de água quente, que por sua vez vem a escaldar. Devia ter um sistema de ventilação mais eficaz. Quanto à limpeza da cozinha fica um pouca a desejar, no entanto cabe a cada hospede limpar o que suja.

Has a sweet lobby to chill out in with decent wifi. Rooms are clean but it's right next to a train line so just keep that in mind. It's a 10-15 minute walk from the bar region so a little bit of a hike but it's super close to the main bus station out of Dublin.
