There were a lot of nice evening with beautiful girls ...

Our room had a window in the ceiling and we did not hear any noises from the trains, which pass above the hostel's building. However there is no wall isolation and the corridor is really noisy (wooden floor as well as people!), so even if you use earplugs, you will hear noises from very early in the morning. But you are on holidays so sleeping is not a priority :D Breakfast is very basic but it's free, so no problem with that. We had a good experience overall, recommended stay.

Overall I thought this hostel was great - clean, functional, and with an extremely friendly and helpful staff! Good stuff! I was a bit disappointed with the "breakfast," and it was too bad that the lockers were in the basement. It would have been great to at least have some small lockers in the rooms. Overall, though, I really enjoyed my stay!

We had a great stay.Love the location & the basement has so much to offer that we will plan our next stay to include time to use the facilities (for the kids) ;) We had two rooms on opposite sides & noise varied between them.Luckily mine was the quieter one :)

We had a private room and it was simple, but very clean. We even had towels and were able to share a bathroom with the room nextdoor, which was pretty convenient. Staff was great, helped us with good hints. The commonroom was quite big, with a kitchen and you were always able to find someone to talk to. Breakfast was great, with toast, jams, eggs, cereals, etc. Would recommend staying there, as it is also located in walking distance to the city center and the main bus / train station.

I stayed with 7 friends of mine, and everyone thought the hostel was lovely. The common areas are fantastic--it was a comfortable place to hang out, and it was extremely easy to meet other people staying there (but also easy to stick to your own group if that's what you prefer).

I was in room 218. The sockets were really hard to reach since to beds are in front of four sockets. So eight people have to share two sockets...

Everything was good, friendly staff, just during the night there was a guy at reception who wasn't polite at asking things. Not good and really uncomfortable. Other than this, it was good.

I had a great stay at Isaac's. I spent two nights and wish I would have stayed longer. The friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, and awesome price all helped make my trip to Dublin the best it could be.

The first guy who I checked in with was super helpful (supermario tee) but every other member of staff that I came into contact with were not. Not very welcoming at all. Generally pretty clean. Wifi only works in common rooms which is frustrating. All of the breakfast team were really rude which would absolutely stop me from going back.

I loved Isaacs! Pretty easy to find, even at night. Located a couple minutes walk from the River Liffey and Temple Bar! I met so many friendly people during my stay, and the staff was fantastic! Had an early flight my last day, stayed downstairs and they kept me company with conversation and games. Breakfast was simple but very good. Stayed in 14 bed female dorm, no problems. I felt very secure at all times staying here. Only negative was the toilets smelled.. Thanks! Can't wait to revisit soon!

Das 8-er Zimmer war nicht für acht Personen ausgelegt (z.B. kaum Steckdosen) und die Tür/Boden Konstruktion so laut, dass niemand schlafen konnte. Außerdem sind die Bad-und Toilettenbereiche sehr offen, was unangenehm ist, da Leute im Gang quasi an Duschen und Toiletten direkt vorbeilaufen. Ansonsten war das Hostel sehr schön!

We had a great time staying at Isaacs in Dublin. Clean and safe Hostel and a great staff! Only thing: It would be nice to have WIFI at the rooms... It`s close to city center but not to close, so there is not much of noises around.

Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Accueil et ambiance chaleureuse. Le petit déjeuner est très bon et copieux. Les dortoirs sont spacieux, et non bruyants. Les sanitaires sont en très bon état et très propres!

ostello pessimorispetto ai quindici ostelli provati in giro per l'Europa, unica cosa carina è il salone comune all'ingresso dell'ostello, per il resto avevamo effettuato un prenotazione unica per sette posti(come sempre) e ci hanno diviso in entrambi le stanze con altre persone maleducatissime. Pulizia dell'ostello scarsissima soprattuttto nei bagni che cmq erano scarsi, colazione da evitare, inoltre per il deposito bagagli cauzione da pagare, non mi er MAI CAPITATO DI TROVARMIO COSI MALE IN UNA

Free breakfast was awesome, bathrooms were clean and tidy. The only issues I found were regarding the lack of a power socket close to the beds and the temperature of the rooms, which were way too hot.
