I had fun at Isaac's but it really wasn't as a result of anything related to the hostel. The staff was unamused and the establishment was like a more crowded college dorm. Every little thing costs extra, so you are really reminded how much the hostel is money oriented rather than focused on providing good experiences

The atmosphere was nice. The breakfast was excellent. The rooms were clean.My room was 2nd floor, so I needed to bring my luggage there. It was a little hard for me. The shower didn't work around 9p.m.

The property has a great location and the stag was friendly. The showers sucked and often the water was cold. If you're looking for a place to make friends and hangout then this is for you. The staff and other people staying here will make you feel at home. Overall I would recommend this hostel as it is definitely worth...

Location was perfect and the staff is super friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Beds are average and the bathrooms are clean as well as the building itself. Highly recommend going to this hostel for your stay.

Very friendly atmosphere, great community area. Lots of things to do, they have tours and pub crawls. Great for travellers. Only downfall is how warm the rooms were. I did request it to be turned off. It felt like I was in the Sahara desert. They should ask whilst booking do you want the heating on.

Great location for a short stay in Dublin but rooms can be loud (trains) and stuffy... classic hostel really. Breakfast is again okay, nothing special but nice way to start the day! The staff totally made the trip- thanks! Nice atmosphere too

A good value hostel in the heart of Dublin, with excellent transport facilities. The reception area is also the main communal space which is very inviting and cosy. The room itself (6 bed female) was very spacious and clean. The main downside was that there was no lockers in the room but it still felt very secure. The receptionist Kevin...
