    Nice, modern hostel in Dublin City Centre

    by

    I would recommend Isaacs Hostel. It is a modern hostel with it's own Cafe/Snack Bar - decent coffee - internet access, courtyard with tables where you can smoke etc. they also have double rooms without a bathroom however.
    this hostel is just right opposite the Central Bus station 'Busaras'.
    Have a look at:http://www.isaacs.ie/

    this area is not safe at night and it is advisable, especially if you are on your own, to take a taxi, and ask the taxi driver to remain there until you have entered and closed the door behind you!

    Unique Quality: Internet access (about 4 computers in lobby)
    Nice Cafe with really good Coffee
    24-hour reception
    lockers (where you can store your luggage, even after you've checked out)
    large communal room with tables, juke box and drinks machine
    Courtyard with tables

    Directions: opposite Busaras - Central Bus Station (all buses from the aiport get there)

    Isaacs Hostel

    by

    I decided to sleep here becauce it was quite cheap (about 10 Euro/per night). The atmosphere of the place is great. The hostel is located in the city center, close to the bus and railway stations. There was a light brekfast including coffee or tea and a muffin.

    There may be some problems with reservation. You can reserve a room using only web-site and you have to pay 10% af the total price by your credit card. If you have no card, you have no reservation. On the other hand, it is comfortable taht they accept all major credit cards.;)

    I met wonderful people in the hostel (two from France and one from Croatia) and we went to do some pub's sightseeing. Reception is 24h but you need to take your check-in card with you when you plan to come back late to be let in.

  • Wow this place is for real "hostel types"

    by

    It was my first time in a hostel.. It might also be my last time in a hostel.. hee hee

    I don't think that there was anything wrong with the place, we paid 100euro for two people for two nights.. Cheap!

    The place was really big, the bathrooms were disguisting and the breakfast consisted of a muffin and a cup of tea... But we did not do a proper cost/benefit analysis before making our choice and in retrospect.. we got what we paid for...

    Not that we did not enjoy the trip it's just that hostelling is a "differnt" experience...

    P.S I highly reccoment that you pay 1euro a day to rent a locker for your bags.. there were two thefts when we were there... 1 euro.. think about it!!

    Unique Quality: 18 people in one room,

    Big kitchen,

    Internet access,

    Lockers,

    Central

    Directions: Beside the bus station, easy to get to and you can walk to almost everywhere, ask the front desk for directions...

    Not the best

    by

    I was told that this place is in a bit of a dangerous area at night, but I came in late every night and never felt like I was in danger. It's a crowded and busy hostel, with a cafe, internet facilities, breakfast included in the room rate, ironing facilities, lockers. None of the extras is free. If you want to get online you pay. If you want a towel, you pay. A locker, same thing.

    Unique Quality: Overall, I wasn't too happy with this place and I wouldn't stay here again. The room was fine, although they don't clean it everyday like some hostels I've stayed at. The bathrooms were my biggest complaint. They didn't have enough of them and as a result, they're not always clean.

    Directions: Behind the Custom House, north of the Liffey.

    A central hostel

    by

    It's a nice hostel even if it's view is not the best.... It has a little court where people can have something to drink if it's a sunny day, an Internet point and a kitchen where you can cook by yourself in order to save money. There's a thing that is not so nice...you can't go to your room from 11 to 17 and if you've left your luggages in the left-luggage, you can have it back every half an hour.well.....I had so much fun in that place, I met so many people that this thing is the last I will remember about this hostel!

    Unique Quality: It's quite near the Busàras, the bus station (so if you came straight from the airoport is quite good),and next to Connolly's railway station as well. It has a magnetic card so you're sure nobody can enter your room and this ,I think,is a great thing!!!

    Directions: From airport, the Airlink Bus operated by Dublin Bus, brings you to central bus station directly opposite Isaacs Hostel. Or you can catch the Aircoach private service that brings you to O'Connell street just a few minutes from the hostel.

Accommodation Over the New Year

by Becfromoz

Hey VT'ers

I am looking for two nights 'reasonable priced' accommodation for a couple from 30th Dec 05 to 1st January 06 - no five star hotels, just somewhere clean and preferable in the city centre.

I would appreciate any ideas/recommendations.

Thanks in advance
Bec
