We were 10 people over 40 years and we had a great weekend. Everything is super clean and very friendly staff and always listening. Great location, close to the tram and bus and close to the center on foot even while being very quiet. We will return!

Location - Excellent if you like to be close enough to the center but minus the noise and hustle and bustle. Also 2-min walk from the Airlink bus stop from the airport. Staff - Extremely helpful, friendly and always in great spirit (not sure how they manage to do that!). Free walking tour is also offered daily which is a... More

Do not stay here if you don't have to. The rooms furnishings are old, shabby, and dusty. The shower and sink tap only dispense in bursts, so you have to keep pushing them. It's full of noisy, obnoxious, drunk college students who shout and scream in the rooms and hallways until as late as 5am. I got no sleep.

It is very clean, only 1 outlets in a room for 12 people so that was very inconvenient. The staff is friendly for the most part until it becomes dark outside. I stayed at this hostel one night, and had a fine experience. The next day I was paying to store my stuff in a locker there and came back... More

I've been there for a couple of nights during my trip to Dublin. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. One of the electronic keys they gave us wasn't working and I know it happened to others as well - I had to open the room door to a guy locked outside. I would come back.

We stay in this hostel for three nights and we had an extremely good time there. The staff and everyone staying in the hostel were very friendly and very prompt to help! Well located, nice staff, clean, good organized. No lockers in the rooms.

I had an unexpected one night stay due to an overbooking mistake at another hostel. It was a nice surprise coming here. The staff were some of the most personable and helpful I have come across. A lack of a common area might of been a negative but I only stayed one night so it didn't matter. The price was... More

The Jacob's Inn Hostel is simply one of the best hostels that I have never visited. Well located, nice staff, clean, good organized. I warmly recommend to go there if you're looking for a "low-budget" place to stay. The only thing missing is more common spaces where to meet people. The couple of ones available don't have a warm ambiance.... More

We stayed as a group of five people in a six bed room with en suite bathroom. Each of us paid 73 euros for four nights, which is a good price! The rooms were clean and got cleaned daily. The breakfast is free and normal, I would say. Two times the people at reception were very unfriendly when we were... More

Hi Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay . Our apologies if you found the night staff unfriendly this should not be the case . They are obviously very conscious of security at night time and that is why the security passes are important . We will double check that this is being made clear to guests... More
