Hostelworld says

Isaacs Hostel has been with Hostelworld for more than 10 years and it's not too hard to see why; it's located very near Connolly train station and Busaras, Dublin's main bus station, providing easy connections to the rest of Ireland. It's also within walking distance of O'Connell St and Temple Bar and guests tell us it's 'a very convenient connection to the airport'. The highly recommended pub crawl is hosted by the friendly and helpful staff who ensure this hostel provides 'a cosy atmosphere and a good opportunity to meet travellers'.

Property Description

Want to know what the Lonely Planet Guide says about us?
'The northside's best hostel - hell, for atmosphere alone it's the best in town - is in a 200-year-old wine vault just around the corner from the main bus station. Friendly, secure and well stocked, it generates consistently good reviews from backpackers and other budget travellers'. - Lonely Planet

So why us? Isaacs is the original Dublin backpacker hostel with a really friendly and warm atmosphere, bang in the City Centre. After a hard day’s sightseeing, our chill out areas are just the job for meeting other travellers.

Isaacs offers all the facilities a backpacker could want! Multi-bed dorms and private rooms available to suit your budget and you get free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, free sauna, free guided walking tours and sometimes free live music! We've also got a guest Kitchen , laundry facilities, Xbox, DVDs, a pool table, Fussball ,Table tennis and general almighty craic.

Wouldn't you like to stay in the best city centre location? Of course you would...well, Isaacs Hostel couldn't be more central. Outside is the direct bus from Dublin Airport; take the 747 bus and get here from airport in only 25 minutes! We're also opposite Busaras, the central bus station. It's only 200m from here to Connolly train station and 20m to the LUAS, while O'Connell St is just 500m away. It's an easy walk to the 3e stadium, Croke Park and only three DART stops from the Aviva Stadium. All tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and shops (including Trinity College and Temple Bar) are but a five-to-ten-minute stroll away.

You can enjoy regular free events running in the hostel for guests, including daily walking tours, Pizza nights, Quiz tournaments, and much more!

With no curfew and 24-hour reception you can chill out in our common areas. Isaacs has the cutest common space to hang out, chat, chat up, play and party in than any other hostel around!

    Superb

    18 May 2018
    Great location near buses and trams. 45 second walk from the Airlink bus to/from the airport (7€/12€). The hostel has a grunge feel outside since the Dublin metro is above ground and cuts right through the hostel area. It creates gritty alleys that I enjoyed. But, walk for 45 seconds and there is a police station, food, transport, architecture, art. I didn’t realize until my 3rd night that the building near by is police. For all my USA friends the Irish police are chill. They won’t hurt us.

    This hostel is in a great location and felt very safe! You can walk to shopping, bars, and restaurants very easily. Also the bus stop was close. We enjoyed our two nights here exploring Dublin. It was fairly clean for a 10 bed dorm and sharing the bathroom down the hall. But the only thing that we were not happy about is there were no lockers or way to lock up your stuff in your room. Also the Wifi only worked in the common areas. But over all good stay!

    Fabulous

    Nice and popular Hostel a little out of City Centre. There are a lot of people that stay there, but it was still quiet at night. Would definitely stay there again.

    Very Good

    Isaac's certainly isn't the best hostel you could probably find in Dublin, but it's a good place to crash for the night. It's right underneath the train tracks so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.
