Want to know what the Lonely Planet Guide says about us?
'The northside's best hostel - hell, for atmosphere alone it's the best in town - is in a 200-year-old wine vault just around the corner from the main bus station. Friendly, secure and well stocked, it generates consistently good reviews from backpackers and other budget travellers'. - Lonely Planet
so why us?? Isaacs is the original Dublin backpacker hostel with a real friendly and warm atmosphere bang in the City Centre. After a hard day’s sightseeing our chill out areas are just the job for meeting other travellers.
Isaacs offers all the facilities a backpacker could want! Multi-bed dorms and private rooms available to suit your budget and you get free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, free sauna, free guided walking tours and sometimes free live music! We've also got laundry facilities, PlayStation, DVDs, a pool table, Fussball and Table tennis and general mighty craic.
Wouldn't you like to stay in the best city centre location? Of course you would...well, Isaacs Hostel couldn't be more central. Outside is the direct bus from Dublin Airport; take the 747 bus and get here from airport in only 25 minutes! We're also opposite Busaras, the central bus station. It's only 200m from here to Connolly train station and 20m to the LUAS, while O'Connell St is just 500m away. It's an easy walk to the 3e stadium, Croke Park and only three DART stops from the Aviva Stadium. All tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and shops (including Trinity College and Temple Bar) are but a five-to-ten-minute stroll away.
You can enjoy regular free events running in the hostel for guests, 'Live @ Isaacs' gigs concerts, daily walking tours, movie nights, quiz tournaments, and much more!
With no curfew and 24-hour reception you can chill out in our common areas. Isaacs has more common space to hang out, chat, chat up, play and party in than any other hostel around!
We are a secure hostel, open 24 hours, with key card access to all our bedrooms, self-catering kitchen and amazingly cute common areas. We also have a café in the hostel for free light breakfast.
Famous for our friendly, knowledgeable staff, you can pick up some great tips on how to make the most of your visit to Dublin from our team; they'll even sell you tickets for the best tours and attractions around.
Please note that families travelling with children under the age of 16 are required to book private rooms.'
-the stay was fine, unfortunately it was pretty loud at night (people screaming on the streets in front of the hostel, pretty loud music)
- location is pretty cozy and in the center of Dublin
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The bus stop from Limerick to Dublin is not bus station.. I got the problem to find it at the beginning.. I could feel somewhere around there, but nobody on the street know where it located.. There I decided to go to pub for a drink and ask where it is..
