I had high hopes for Jacobs Inn but by the end of my trip I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Some of the staff could really use a refresher course on how to speak to people. There could be more charging outlets for people. Bedding wasn't very clean and the rooms could use some love.

Isaacs was my first hostel when I arrived in Dublin. It is a 1 minute walk from the bus depot and a five minute walk from the heart of downtown. It has a great common area where you can drink and meet people at all hours of the day and night. There are free walking tours daily and pub crawls... More

During my stay in Jacobs INN Dublin I liked the cover sheets very much. The stuff is doing their best to clean everything. Also guys at the reception are always trying to help as best they can. I don't like to point out only one name but Dermot helped me even he wouldn't have to. Just couple of tips: 1)... More

Clean beds and bathrooms, good breakfast, mostly friendly staff, but a bit of a boring atmosphere. Not a lot going on most nights. Other small cons to note: no plugs or lights beside the bed, no lockers in room, no elevator, and it gets really hot in the rooms unless the window's open, which then lets in the street noise...

The Cons: The private rooms are like small little cells, with one chair, a tiny table and a small window-tough for 2 people, WiFi does not work anywhere in the hostel including the first floor-which was not a problem anywhere else I stayed in Dublin or Ireland (iPhone5s Verizon). Very noisy late at night (4am) with no signs anywhere asking... More

So sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do only offer a light breakfast which is free of charge to our guests. Our wifi is contained to the ground floor area as we like our guests to socialise with each other in the dorms. More

We had a great experience! The staff were friendly, energetic and very understanding while still doing their job with excellence. Laundry facilities, free wifi, free filtered water & free breakfast were great! The location was lovely, not too loud but easy to walk anywhere you want.

Isaac's was great! The staff is friendly and willing to help you. The bathrooms were clean and kept that way throughout our stay. I wish the WiFi had been hostel wide and available in the rooms all the time.
