    This was my first stay at a hostel, and Isaacs met my expectation and beyond. Felt safe the entire time, facilities were very clean, and the free breakfast was a plus. All staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the 2:00 p.m. check in time, My flight got in super early, and I was exhausted waiting for 2:00 p.m. Mostly my fault for booking an early flight.

    Uno de los mejores Hostel que he visitado, los chicos del Hostel son muy amables, atentos y te ayudan en todo, es un punto a destacar, cosas que no me gustó fue que la mesa de pool necesita un buen mantenimiento, me refiero a que debería haber 2 palos, además El laundry tiene pocas máquinas para la cantidad de gente que recibe, hay 3 lavadoras y 3 secadoras, las cuales 1 de cada tipo no funcionaba, osea que todo el tiempo estaban ocupadas las máquinas.

    Good hostel to stay close to the city center. The cons are the shower and the mattress of the bunk bed.

    Had a great stay here, well worth the value for money! Showers were never warm or hot, only cold for me on my visit. Locker's deposit system is a bit steep. Especially if you've just stayed there for 3 nights. Otherwise had a lovely stay, and even thought it's a bit off the beaten track you're in the centre of Dublin very quickly and easily with a short walk!

    Basic hostel but still nice. Quite pricey but I think that is just Dublin in general. Free breakfast was good. Can be loud at night especially at the weekends.

    Hotel vibe. Staff disinterested. No lockers in rooms and our door didn’t shut and lock properly. Good location and the rooms and bathrooms were clean. Not worth the price I paid.

    I stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm. The facilities and rooms were fine at this hostel. During the first night of my stay, a man came into our room at 3AM extremely drunk. He began yelling threatening and predatory things and was making it impossible for anyone to feel safe, let alone sleep in the room. When he finally ran out of the room, my friend and I went and contacted the front desk. When a man from the front desk came, he heard the predatory threats, laughed, and said he could do nothing.
