Liked: The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Altogether the hostel was great with free breakfast offered every morning. We wish the main area had more seating as it was full at important times such as breakfast and late at night.

Liked: A very noisy place during the night, people screaming and running the whole night. The noise seemed to be the biggest problem. The room was very cold at the end of January (central heating did not function). Windows have not been washed for ages.

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.

Disliked: Chris left no negative feedback.

20 June 2009 Rien would recommend this property

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.

Customer review

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.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
