Liked: The room was clean and very comfortable - modern bathroom was also better than expected. The staff were friendly and helpful in offering suggestions of where to go and how to get there. Location suited us ideally for sightseeing but we opted for a taxi to/from the Temple Bar area each night (mainly due to choice of footwear!). Would definitely return!

Liked: It's clean, very close to the city center and behind the bus station for the airport.

Disliked: I wouldn't suggest this hostel just for this reason: the room was too cold, there was almost no heating at all and it was January!! Another thing I disliked is that the bathroom has this annoying system where you have to press a button every 20 seconds to make water run in the shower and the sink.

Liked: The hostel has a good position, near the main street (O'Connel) and Connelly station. Staff is friendly and the reception is open 24h a day. The free guided tour offered by the hostel is also very cool.

Disliked: The private rooms was cold, especially the bathroom. We had a problem with the reservation at our arrival, so for the first night we had to stay in a dormitory instead of a double room ensuite. Anyway the staff tried to let me and my friend alone in that dormitory; at payment time, they charged the amount as if we stayed in a private room for the first night. Breakfast is poor

Liked: We were staying at a nearby hostel, room had bare minimum. The Issac's hotel was wonderful. We had an apartment and for weary traveller's it was wonderful. Great kitchen, bedrooms, bath. Satff was really helpful.

Disliked: Nothing, we were so happy to get the apartment for almost the same price of a room with 4 beds in another hostel.
