The top bunks only have a rail on one side. Either request a bottom bed or one against a wall if you fear falling off!
This was a great hostel but the staff weren't very helpful when I first arrived. It was very clean and the breakfast was typical but good. Great location, awesome walking tour of the city. Could do with a little grease on the bunk beds.
I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel! It's fairly noisey but it's a busy place to stay with lots of people so that's to be expected. The staff were great and the airport transfer was really cheap. I wouldn't really recomend the pub crawl, it could be better on other nights as you can't predict who will go. But we left early, as did lots of other people on the crawl. I think if you want to go out drinking in Dublin it's easy enough to make your own way around the pubs for a great night :)
Could use some more in-hostel activities. Security was good and most of the staff were very welcoming
Best hostel I've been to !

Very nice hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Free walking tour and pub crawls every day!
Facilities were excellent and the vibe was young and urban. Great location, only a 5 minute walk into the city centre. Facilities such as the sauna were great! The best showers and toilets I've used in a hostel. The staff are always cheerful and happy to help! The prices are the best in Dublin! :)
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.
Staff were fan-flippin-tastic!

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.
An absolutely amazing place! Friendly staff, clean rooms and showers and an excellent location to go with the wonderful atmosphere!!
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.
Great stay overall, would recommend to anyone, especially if traveling in a group.
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.
Had a wonderful stay at Isaacs Hostel. The staff were very friendly and exceptionally helpful.
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.
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
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.
