The Jacobs Inn at Dublin is really a great hostel. I would say one of the best hostels that I visited during my stay in Europe. The room is very spacious and clean. Every day, the bathroom and the room itself were cleaned. It has a small breakfast included and it has great communal facilities.

I've been to Jacobs Inn on several occasions since 2013. At the time I had never stayed in a hostel before, Jacobs inn was welcoming clean and spacious especially when it comes to ceilings. It is so close to city centre and luas and buses right outside. I did have a problem the last time I stayed noisy people on... More

This hostel had great facilities, friendly staff and was clean and secure. I stayed in the large dormitory and although the others had clearly been there for a while and had settled in the room was tidy and welcoming. The only downside was the lack of power points in the room; I could only find one and it was within... More

We took the 12-bed dorm and stayed for 5 nights and we loved this place. Location was very good with everything within walking distance. Room was very big and spacious which we felt could've used a few hangers on the wall. Beds were sturdy and firm with no squeaky sounds. We would have liked it if there plugs were placed... More

As a solo traveler, location and safety are always my top priority when it comes to accommodation. I was here during the St Patricks weekend. This place is much better than the ranking it currently has. It is pretty much in the city center and if you plan to see Dublin, that is mostly where u will end up each... More

Jacob's Inn was a great hostel with excellent facilities. The kitchen was very big by hostel standards and clean. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm where I met some now lifelong friends. The only down side of the room was the lack of powerpoints, (only six for 10 people and none in the bathroom) but other than that I... More

Very disgusting experience with the staff at night, very rude night staff, specially David. We were with some friends having a good time with live music, and David said to finish at 00.00. The party finished at 23.20 because he wanted to finish ealier.

The location is fantastic - really close to the river, 10 mins from temple bar area, near the shops and the actual street has lots of little shops/pubs on. The bus from the airport drops you right outside. Very clean, very big. Great communal areas and staff have top banter (and good local advise.) Definitely recommend and would definitely return!
