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

There is a free walking tour inclusive which is nice if you are new to the city. Shared self catering kitchen offered oven, microwave etc. However prices seem to be a bit too high in... More

The staff and everyone staying in the hostel were very friendly and very prompt to help! Very well located and a great hostel for those who are planning a visit on a low budget, though I should say that having more showers wouldn't harm nobody. Still I'd recommend it to all my friends!

Wonderful staff! The hostel is in a great location and easily reachable by bus from Dublin Airport. The room was a good size, clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a TV as well, a table and chairs and space to hang our clothes. The bathroom was a great size, clean and had an excellent ensuite shower.

It is a nice place, comfortable, friedly and the staff was very kind and helpful. The hostel is easy to reach from the airport by bus, more or less half hour and is near to the most interesting highlights in Dublin.
