The Isaac’s Hostel (www.hostels.com/noavailability.php?Weekend=1) is located in the city center of Dublin near the bus station and Connelly train station. The location is great (just blocks from Temple Bar area) and the price can’t be beat, at about $22 a night for a mixed dorm. The only problem with this place is the beds. The beds are pushed tightly together and are a bit on the uncomfortable side. However, the lounge on the first floor and the game and common rooms in the basement are great. With a soda machine full of Guinness, a TV room full of comfy couches, a plethora of games (such as pool and the like), a row of Internet capable computers (that you have to pay for) and a full restaurant and outdoor patio.
The ambience was great and the people there were hilarious. The restaurant next door was a bit on the pricey side, but the food was decent. Also, there is plenty of information on what to do in Dublin via the tourism bureau and the packets are worth it, so pick some of those up. Also, if you need to make international phone calls, there is an Internet café down the street with great prices for both the Internet usage and the phones. So, if you find yourself in Dublin at some point and need a place to crash without affecting your wallet too badly, Isaac’s Hostel could be the place for you.
