Very nice hostel in a great location. Friendly staff who want to make sure you feel welcome. Clean facilities. Light continental breakfast. Make sure you spend some time in the commong room and mingle with the people from all over the world. Highly recommended in Dublin.

Stayed here with a friend and we had a fantastic weekend in Dublin. The hostel very reasonably priced and even has a sauna downstairs with cool little rooms to chill out and get to know people. Would recommend this for solo or group travelers.

Nice location, nice staff and they have free Mao's which is always good. I did find the hostel a bit warm (especially the dorm) and it wasn't the quietest at night (lots of creaky floorboards, train nearby) but that's just hostels really!

This hostel offers a good environment and services at the same time. The location is very convenient, close to the city center. All people are friendly and the rooms are clean. What's more, we could sleep well.

Super nice staff and great location! They were welcoming from the moment we walked in and made us feel right at home. It had a quaint, traditional Irish feel to it that enhanced the overall experience.

I stayed in Isaacs hostel with a friend as part of our spring break and it was a great base in Dublin. It was pretty close to everything and there were a lot of people around our age (21) staying there which was nice. We went on a walking tour that left from the hostel that i would definitely recommend....

The staff was super friendly and helpful. There were Bitish plug outlets which was unexpected but not the hostel's fault, but there were only 4 outlets in a room with 8 beds. The bathrooms were small and had no place to set your things down, so benches or something would be a good idea.
