Jacobs epitomizes the typical character of Dubliners, `rip off the dumb tourists' and screw the service. These people are arrogant, obnoxious and rude. It has a negative vibe to it. They are willing to allow large groups or party's take over the self catering kitchen or have party's in their dorms and causing disruption for other guests, so long as... More

This hostel was great. It was big and open. Breakfast was decent, I was able to do my washing (though one machine was broken so there was a line up), beds were decent enough and rooms were clean. My 12 bed dorm had an ensuite which was good. Each bed could use a charging station though. My favourite aspect that... More

I enjoyed my stay, but some bad points were the noise (my room was next to the train station and you can hear them distinctly with the window open and you need to leave them open because the room has no fan or air-conditioning) and the uncomfortable beds (the pillows were really flat!). However, I didn't have to spend much... More

Extremely good price coupled with central location and excellent service. Common rooms were well stocked and staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend and would probably stay there again if I ever end up in Dublin again.

I loved the whole experience. People were really nice, my dorm mates were open and fun to hang out with. The beds were not comfortable though, sharing a kitchen with so many you couldnt eat any time you wanted to and the breakfast was less than expected. The staff was awesome though, everyone was super friendly and I found it... More

Lack of power outlets in the room made it frustrating to charge devices overnight. (Only 1 outlet in a 12 bed dorm) Lots of big groups, but that's just summer I think, staff were very accommodating and quite knowledgable.

I stopped in Dublin for a day while on a two week trip throughout the UK on my way home from living in Europe. Jacobs Inn was centrally located, had a wonderful staff and my overall experience was amazing. I will definitely recommend Jacobs Inn to everyone passing through Dublin in the future.

Next to Busaras. Nice rooms and commodities. Breakfast is nice and wifi works fine. Two public computers available. Price is affordable and what you get is more than ok. A lot of young travellers hanging around, it has a roof terrace to smoke and socialize and breakfast area is nice too.

Definitely the best hostel I've stayed in Europe. The facilities were complete and beyond my expectations. My fellow roommates were from all over the world but everyone was courteous towards each other and I've learnt a lot about different cultures. The staff was just friendly and awesome.

Overall I have to say i'm very satisfied. Quality of the room was great, only thing I didnt like about the room was the fiddly sink tap in the bathroom, we could never really work with it properly, its a minor flaw though. We stayed for only 3 nights so we had little chances to interact with the staff, but... More

Many thanks for very positive feedback. We will check out the sink if perhaps you could be so good as to email Renata@jacobsinn.com with your room number ? Thanks More
