Had nice stay at Isaac's. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was warm but the bed was comfortable enough for a hostel bed. Showers were warm, but had to keep pressing a button to get water. Breakfast spread was good and free, and the free walking tour from the door was sensational. The safest luggage storage I have...

My friends and I came to Dublin only for the weekend, and we loved the hostel. It was great to have free breakfast in the morning and the locker room was ideal for us. We'll go back next year for sure! ;)

Full kitchen, free full English breakfast. Pretty much no regimented bunk assignment system, it would be really easy to put numbers on bunks and then assign them once people have reserved or checked...

cheap place and affordable prices for being in dublin, but a bit too noisy with drunk people especially by nightime, the toilets have to be cleaned more often and they are too tiny. great location close to the city center and the main touristic spots

The location is decent, but we had a much better stay at Jacobs just around the corner. The rooms were a decent size, clean linen etc but dreadfully hot even when we asked for the heating to be turned down over night. Our dorm was also right next to the train line so if you're a light sleeper would recommend...

The hostel is well located, 10 minutes walking distance from Temple Bar neighborhood. Very close to Buhara train station and Airlink Express Bus Stop. The hostel does not provide rooms with bathroom ensuite.

Nice central location, sympathetic staff, nice kitchen. The only thing is that the room was not very warm - actually, we were freezing. We were there in January. Nevertheless, except that, the stay was very pleasant and I would recommend it. Great quality-price ratio.
