Hostel near the citicentre of Dublin. Very friendly staff. We tried 12 Bedroom - other people were calm and quiet. We appreciated free breakfast (toast and cereals + juice, tea or coffee) and wi-fi in the room. Room was clean.

I would highly recommend Jacobs inn . The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The rooms were also clean. It was in a great location, close to the city centre and public transport. Overall I had a great experience and would stay with them again.

It was a very nice hostel in the city center with a self catering kitchen (the equipment could be improved) and breakfast included. The staffs were very nice and some good offers like a free city walking tour.

Not far from the centre, clean and big. There are just only young people but unfortunately kitchen and all other stuff close at eleven p.m. The phrase you will listen so much time is "not *something* after eleven"

The hostel is great, very clean, feels like a hotel. Has nice outdoor area upstairs. The eating area needs to be bigger for the size of the hostel. But nice that there is staff to do the dishes for breakfast. Everyone is really nice, knowledgable, and accommodating. Would stay here again.

I personally liked the atmosphere of this hostel. The staff was friendly and also really helpful when I had any requests. There was a really big common room where I spent some time. The only bad thing was the bed. It was so hard that I had trouble sleeping in it. The bathroom was clean, as was the rest of... More

After a mistake was made in the booking I returned to my room at 6pm to find some one else had moved into my bed and my belongings still in the room but shifted. The rest of Dublin was booked out so my friend who was also staying in the hostel stored my luggage while we went out. Returned at... More

I spent 5 nights at Jacob's Inn Hostel. The location is excellent near to O'Connell Street and near the transport link which is ideal if you plan to use the Hop on - Hop off bus or the airport link. The room was clean and it was what I expected for the price you pay. Other facilities such self catering... More

We only were their for one night. That's why I can't write that much. The Service was good and the location is very nice. The cleanliness was ok. Breakfast included! Everyone of us enjoyed the stay for this one night.
