I booked this place using a HOTEL booking service and paid Hotel price for a night stay while visiting Dublin. There was no toilet facility in the rooms and in the public toilet someone had thrown up into the first sink making it really difficult for me with a week stomach to use the toilet and having a shower with...

The facilities were good enough, the room was big and the ensuite was good in our 6 bed female only room. The noise from the nearby station can be initially annoying but wasn't personally a real frustration. However the pillows and the mattresses were not very comfortable and could do with replacing or tlc. I don't have any real issues... More

This was my first time at Jacob's Inn, and I had initially booked 2 nights as the hostel where I was staying at did not have beds available for those 2 nights. We had booked a 10 bed mixed dorm and was given a room on the 4th floor. Seriously, this was one of the biggest rooms I have been... More

I was complitly satisfied with Jacob's Inn. The bed was comfortable. The room was enough big and clean. The breakfast was alright too. Good value for money. The place was full of life, the people were also friendly. The city center is about 15 mins walk, the airport transfer bus stops just next to the hostel. The Guinness storehouse is... More

The 10-beds rooms are very large. There is a bathroom in the room, with a good shower and two sinks. There were many hangers available to use in the rooms. However, there was no locker (only at the reception, charged). The breakfast is very good: toasts, cereal, milk, tea, coffee, juices, butter, jams. The hostel is very secure, almost every... More

Stayed for two nights in a 10-bed female only dorm room. The hostel is clean and the rooms are nice with hot showers. Couldn't get the wi-fi to work unless I was in the common area. Breakfast was fine and there was plenty of it, the staff are helpful and there are lockers to keep in valuables, though everyone in... More

I stayed for three nights at Jacobs Inn and it was a good experience. All the staff were friendly and professional. They provide a really good service and always with a big smile. I booked into a six bedroom however for the very first two nights I didn't have to share the room with anybody else as I believe the... More

I for one will look elswhere for the next rugby trip as it has been already many times we stayed and it... More

The Jacobs inn hostel was amazing. First off the staff were so friendly and answered all questions. In terms of location it was right around the corner from the bus station and only a 15 minute walk across the river to the temple bar district. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was spacious and clean. If you... More
