Please improve your bedroom and bathroom situation. In these areas your hostel was the lowest quality I had ever seen. Wifi should be available throughout the whole hostel for guests, not just one room- the common room is too loud and wild at night to make phone calls and even if you say this is to encourage socializing this is...

Expensive time to visit Dublin regardless of where you stay. We loved this hostel, it has pool, fooseball, table tennis, a sauna and some great social communal areas to unwind. Only issue was the beds as I basically slept in a hole as my mattress was very well used. Overall great hostel

The guests in my room were disrespectful, which is the only bad part about my trip. The hostel in itself was very well run and I would go back. The location is also excellent and close to all of Dublin's main attractions.

If you're looking for a no-nonsense and affordable bed to crash on in between sinking Guinness quicker than the Titanic, Isaac's is the place to go in Dublin. Ridiculously convenient to get anywhere and very welcoming of even the most hardcore of party-goers, it's a perfect place for a city break full of debauchery. Exceeded my expectations in terms of...

I loved it all at the Isaac's. Awsome staff, nice common areas, and nice free breakfast. The only problema is that when you stay at the room next to the stairs's door, it's really noisy and difficult to sleep.

It was our first time in this hostel and the experience was very pleasant, with a very merry receptionist greeting us, the rooms were clean (albeit a bit basic but you pay for what you get) and the hostel is well located,. Will be going back in the future.
