Description

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.

“Not as great as advertised”

Rating: 2 Reviewed on April 01, 2020

Saw many great reviews but was a little disappointed. Stay in hostels every time Im in Dublin and this place I probably would not stay again. Specifically was bothered by no lockers in bedrooms...


“Good, but no customer is king”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on March 19, 2020

Beds were good, shower and kitchen were good. But due to corona we decided to go home a couple of days earlier. We already made a reservation, back home, for the Isaac hostel. They were not prepared...


“Unreasonable”

Rating: 1 Reviewed on March 18, 2020

I didn't actually make it to staying here as our trip is completely cancelled due to the Coronavirus. Corresponding with staff to cancel our reservation was ridiculous. This whole virus thing is way...



Directions

From Dublin Airport take the 747 bus and get here in 25 minutes! We are opposite Busaras, the central bus station. It's only 200m to Connolly train station and the LUAS city tram is right outside our front door.

Policies

24 Hours cancellation required. Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay.

Isaacs Hostel due to the shared nature of the facilities provided cannot accommodate minors under the age of 16 years.
