HostelCulture says

Isaacs Hostel is renowned as one of the best in Dublin and for good reason. Isaacs was one of the original great Dublin hostels on the scene and It has managed to find that perfect balance between nurturing the old-school values of hostelling and welcoming a new generation of happy travellers through their delightful red doors all while remaining ever popular. The layout of their common areas makes for a very good hostel atmosphere and makes meeting other backpackers easy and the staff are a lively, young, fun, friendly and helpful bunch. Isaacs is a great value hostel with relatively cheap rates while delivering a top-quality hostel experience, they host regular free events and are the only hostel in Dublin with a free sauna! Nice.
