Isaac's Hostel in Dublin, Ireland. Perfect!

I spent two weeks in Ireland and stayed at various hostels. I was in Galway about to head back to Dublin, and one of my roommates recommended I check out Isaac's when I get back to Dublin. I checked in expecting to stay a night or two like I generally do at hostels, and then move on to the next. However when I got to Isaac's, I did not check out until I had to go catch my flight. It was by far the best hostel I stayed at in Ireland. And it's not because they are fancy or have any one thing in particular that stands out. If I had to pick one thing it would be the beer garden. Having a beer garden at a hostel makes meeting other backpackers really easy and adds a great social aspect to the experience. They also have a great basement area with a ping pong table, pool table, playstation, etc. After a night out in the city with the great people I met in the beer garden earlier, this basement area made for a nice area to continue being social and relax before going to bed.
