I really enjoyed this hostel! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this place!

There are really not enough toiletts and showers for all. Think about nearly 15 girls in the morning and only 2 toiletts and 2 washbasins! You know how a washbasin looks like, when they all are finished...

Some of the staff were very kind, but some were rude. Weren't extremely helpful, kind of just explained the basics and sent you on your way. The room was boiling hot and I'd wake up every night sweating. They do free walking tours and a paid for pub crawl. We did the pub crawl and it was pretty fun. The location is a little bit out of the way so we'd have to walk to city center every day, but it only takes about 10-15 minutes. There wasn't much of an atmosphere so it was a little boring.

Amazing and very helpful staff. The rooms were hot and stuffy and the was often freezing cold water in the showers. Overall a great hostel for its size.

Rooms were very hot and floors creaked very loudly. Doors slammed frequently. Wifi only available in common areas, nowhere to hang stuff in showers.

Arrived at isaacs for the acdc concert on Wednesday and had forgot my photo ID as I had changed my bag and purse before travelling! fortunately my husband had some on him, a massive thank you to guy on reception for accepting it... My daughter had recommended isaacs hostel to me and I can see why, friendly staff, super clean bedrooms/bathrooms, I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Dublin, I most definitely will be visiting again.

Creaky floors are annoying. Showers have no shelves/space to put your belongings when you're taking a shower (other than at the very top, on a small ledge with the risk of your things falling off anyways). There is no door to the shower/toilet, so people walking by can see it. This also makes the hallway/floor VERY humid.

No lift facilities, not good for the tenant who bringing big, heavy luggage Even luggage room also far from reception, and there was complicated process to use it. Breakfast also too light, not enough, some bowls were empty, nobody did care.

Bien ubicado justo al lado de la estación de autobuses y trenes,aunque en un callejón,el personal muy bueno,el dormitorio y las camas bien,pero en un 3 piso y sin ascensor,sin internet en las habitaciones pero muy bueno internet en las areas comunes,que también eran grandes y buenas,buena cocina pero quizá no lo suficientemente grande para el volumen de huéspedes(llegan escuelas con montones de jóvenes)en general muy bueno.aunque le pondría taquillas gratuitas en el dormitorio.

Fora a recepção que é muito bonita e aconchegante, todo o resto deixa a desejar. Quartos muito quentes e com pouca ou nenhuma ventilação, as camas são confortáveis e os lockers pagos, 2 euros à noite. Atendimento varia de acordo com o atendente um muito atencioso, os outros nem tanto. É uma opção para quem quer gastar pouco com hospedagem, porém ja fiquei em outros lugares pelo mesmo preço e com muito mais conforto.

J'ai bien aimé mon séjour au Isaacs. C'est un endroit très sécuritaire, propre et friendly. Les gens sont sympathiques et les employés , dynamique et souriant. J'y retournais sans hésiter et je recommande cette place fortement. Toutefois, voici un petit point à améliorer. L'été, je trouves personnellement qu'il manque de ventilation dans les chambres et près des toilettes et des douches. Il fait très chaud, c'est peut-être à cause des saunas dans le sous-sol.

Great Hostel! I stayed there three nights. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It's also within walking distance of all the main attractions to visit in Dublin and a five minute walk to the train station.

Me trataron muy bien. Los baños estaban siempre limpios como así también los cuartos. Los últimos eran muy espaciosos y con mucha iluminación. El personal muy atento y agradable y el ambiente era muy acogedor. Lo único que tenía es que no se podía usar wifi en los cuartos.

Best Hostel i was in, in my 3 week tripp in Irland. Nice public rooms (great to meet new people). The only bad thing I have to say was the trainrail next to my room (314). I have a strong sleap so it was not a big problem for my but I met some people they had some bad nights because of this...

The room i stayed was very hot and it didnt have window so there wasnt fresh air in the room and outside there is a train going right above the hostel so it shakes the ground and makes a lot of noise

Great value for money. Decent location as was only a short walk over the bridge to Temple Bar and a decent breakfast if you like boiled eggs and toast.

Très bonne auberge ! Le personnel est accueillant et aimable, les chambres et sanitaires propres. Seul petit bémol, la chaleur dans le dortoir !
