The hostel was nice, even though the sound level was poor. So I suggest to take an ear plugs if noises bother your sleep. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, breakfast was free and pretty good. I really liked the location. Good hostel overall.

The staff here are amazing, friendly and helpful. The hostel makes it super easy to get in on walking tours and pub crawls, and does a great job of suggesting activities free and otherwise! I here that the sauna is pretty bomb also, but I did not get a chance to try it myself. Next time:)

Isaacs Dublin is a really good hostel. There was always someone who would help with any problems. The breakfast is great and before 7:30 you can always find something in the common kitchen:) Sunday you will even get an egg:)

I definitely recommend this place! I'm a girl that solo travels and I felt very safe here and the staff is incredible! The front room with all the tables is lively and you can meet many new people. They are also great at planning activities for their guests and there is live music sometimes!

I really like the room downstairs so relax and getting to know new people from different cultures, this was useful to connect to others when travelling alone. Sometimes it was a little bit loud in a 14 bed dorm.

It is a perfect hostel whether you are traveling solo or in a group of friends. The staff will do everything to help you. It is near Dublin's center, they also can help you to book excursions or trips and you can enjoy a lot of activities in the hostel itself. The only thing we missed was that the WIFI...
