Isaacs Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

Very big hostel, simple free breakfast, wifi didn't work very well, only in the common room, and had to check in on facebook to use, plenty of power points in rooms, right next to bus station. Some written directions would have been nice, rather than just a map picture to get to it.

Good location next to galata tower and istiklal street for shopping and nightlife, yet don't hear any noise from the clubs. In some of the rooms you can hear the 5am prayers from the mosque nearby though. Good breakfast provided, wifi only on ground floor, only one bathroom per floor so very busy in mornings. Rooms have lockers, although some are broken so not all can be used.

Would absolutely recommend! Staff were great, taking the guests out at night, and still up early the next morning to work. Location was perfect, right next to a main shopping strip and plenty of restaurants and supermarkets. It is very hard to find though, and the streets it is in are very confusing until you learn where it is, it needs more signs. Also does not have enough bathrooms. Good kitchen and good breakfast provided.

Excellent location, right in the centre and near a metro stop. Friendly staff, big spacious rooms, however another room was connected to my room so people in that room had to walk through mine to get to their room, which sucks when they're coming back from drinking at 5am. Big kitchen with excellent facilities and common room, would recommend!

Good location, in the city and right next to a tube stop. Hostel is on top of a bar, so they offer cheap deals to the residents for meals and drinks. Good breakfast provided as well. Rooms were nice, beds were very squeaky and it seemed like there are some people that live there permanently. Lots of electrical plugs in rooms, and lots of bathrooms as well. There is a common room but no kitchen. Would definitely recommend.

A 10 min walk away from Victoria station, so excellent location for trains, coaches and the tube. Kitchen/common room was small, so if people were in there is was really hard to find space to cook and eat. Wifi didn't work in the rooms, had to sit on the stairs to use it. Breakfast was provided in the morning, and showers were a little small.

Only 1 male and 1 female bathroom, each with 1 toilet, shower and sink, with doors that didn't lock. Bedroom doors also didn't lock, and lockers were average sized. Receptionist didn't speak English.

The hostel is located in the center of Athens. We are within 10-15 min walking distance from Parthenon. The same goes for Syntagma Square where is the parliament and national garden and also the archeological museum. The metro stop is within 3-5 min walking distance and also several buss stops, including the city sight tour buss.
