Sarah Williams thinks…

"Everything! It was such a friendly hostel, has a really great outside look and offers both a pub crawl and free walking tour which were great. Interesting basement, didn't try the sauna but it looked…"

Chris Goldby

22 July 2009 Chris would recommend this property

Liked: The Issacs was good, had a good court yard, good kitchen, good space, good lounge / games room downstairs and a good room, safe, secure and nice soft bed. The location was excellent close to everything, the city center and the ever popular Temple Bar area. There was something vaguely clinical about it which sort of ruined its character a bit. Maybe it was the harsh, bright corridor lighting? There was a noise problem, if groups of people gathered in the corridors to talk loudly during sleeping hours you couldnt help but hear the noises everywhere. The internet was a bit harsh to, 1 euro for 15 min or 2 Euro for the half hour? Theres an internet cafe a block away offering the internet for 1 euro for a whole hour! The staff were very friendly and helpful though and the kitchen storage was a gem. An added bonus were the soft couches in the lounge room.

Liked: Meeting other people, internet available, close to bus station, walking distance to city centre.The acoustic isolation between the rooms is bad; a phone going off in the next room sounded as if it was in our room.

12 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's safe, it's convenient. Breakfast is bread and tea, and the deli next to it was not particularly cheap. My private room was supposed to have a semi-private bath, which simply wasn't there... pipes and no shower or toilet.The floors - very pretty wood, and clean, were extremely creaky, so anyone walking at night was annoying.The internet is only in the main room, where people also eat and hang out, so it could be tight, and it went in and out.Overall fine experience. Good location, and cheap. Friendly staff.

Liked: the room itself was brilliant, very nice facilities. Had a problem with the showers, because I was living on the 3rd floor therefore had to go downstairs for a shower....a bit akward... other than that, really impressed with the rooms, not so much with the "so called" breakfast... very poorly prepared. toast and jam is certainly not my idea of a breakfast. be prepared to bring your own food. other than that 6/10!!

Customer review

03 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: There is a patio off to the side of the hostel that was nice for days when the weather was good, the lockers are pretty big, but 2 euro a night, and the rooms were pretty spacy and fairly clean. The location is quite far from the center of the city and right under a train track where the train comes by at about 5 in the morning and wakes you up. The breakfast was leaner than most hostels (just bread and jam and OJ) but the people are friendly.

Ryan McHale

24 April 2009 Ryan would recommend this property

Liked: Everything within comfortable walking distance unless you are lazy or have rickets. Even if you do suffer either of these two conditions there are buses and taxis literally waiting around the corner from the hostel. Staff are always available and helpful even if you ask a question they couldn't possibly know the answer to. There's a good social atmosphere. Room was clean and spacious enough. Pool table in the games room is placed bizarrly against an arched wall, making any shot attempt from the right side virtually impossible. All in all Isaac's hostel was good times.
