Liked: Really cozy, great location. Lots of information for tourists, spacious rooms, kitchen with free food! Good simple free breakfast.

Disliked: My roommates - but that doesn't have to do with the property. Temperature in showers wasn't cold but it wasn't adjustable and you have to keep pushing a button to get water.

Great feedback which we love. we were having a few problems with the boiler in May and June but this is now resolved so showers should be back to full steam ahead !

Liked: Great location and a lot of friendly people here! I had a blast and everybody was helpful!

Disliked: The internet is a little shaky and I would have preferred it in all rooms, but it was still good to be downstairs and hang with people!

Glad you had a blast - we do too! The internet connection was experiencing diffculty around that time but we since have a new provider and Wifi in the reception areas is much improved. We too think its great at Isaacs people hang out in common rooms to meet people and it is a lot better craic than surfing in your bed room !

Liked: Staff here is absolutely awesome. They are always ready to help and have a great sense of humor. The hostel is decently located only a few minutes walk from the Temple Bar and downtown. They have a pretty big luggage room (though they charge £2 per day to store your stuff). It has a lot of hang out places which fosters a good Atmosphere. The place itself is pretty secure and you would need an electronic key to get into both the dormitories area and your own room. They have a decent breakfast and they make Chilli most nights.. which is incredible.

Disliked: Internet was not good during my whole stay... it would be on and off constantly. The train passes by righ next to the building (which did not bother me at all).

Liked: great value of money, great staffs, breakfast included

Disliked: No hot shower in the morning, but you could shower in the evening and there is hot water. Internet was not working, but you could go to Jacob's inn about 5 min walk, same hostel owner.

Liked: There were tons of activities offered like a free sauna each night and a pub crawl.

Disliked: There was a train that ran right past, so we closed the window at night to shut out the noise. But doing so, the room became extremely hot.

Liked: The location, atmosphere, friendly staff and all the services on offer (guided tour, movie nights, pub crawls, pool, board games, etc.) were a definite PLUS.

Disliked: The cold showers whether you use them early or not, and the heating being a bit too high to our taste.
