The hostel is well located, 10 minutes walking distance from Temple Bar neighborhood. Very close to Buhara train station and Airlink Express Bus Stop. The hostel does not provide rooms with bathroom ensuite.

Nice central location, sympathetic staff, nice kitchen. The only thing is that the room was not very warm - actually, we were freezing. We were there in January. Nevertheless, except that, the stay was very pleasant and I would recommend it. Great quality-price ratio.

In general it's a good hostel to spend a couple of nights while in Dublin. Central location and easy to get there from the airport. A bit noisy and with thin walls so it's quite difficult to get good rest but we did not go to Dublin to sleep

Solid stay and friendly staff. The rooms were a little hot but probably just because the heat was on for winter but the weather was warm. The staff were helpful in finding things to do nearby and there was lots of public space for resting and work.

It has everything that you need in a hostel, clean, secure, we had no trouble with the trains at the time to sleep. The room was small but enough for us, we just wanted to sleep there nothing more. Would come back again.

Stay at Issacs was to comfortable and pleasant. The best part was the clean rooms, wash rooms and lockers facility. I would also like to appreciate the free breakfast and city sightseeing arrangements.
