Great value for the price. Bedroom was clean, we had our own bathroom and towels were included, staff was nice and helpful. People should be careful not to keep a locket for more than a day or they won't get their entire deposit back. Breakfast could be better, juices or tea are cheap but apart from this it's a great...

Friendly staff. 24hr reception. Very good kitchen facilities. Nice, clean rooms. Free breaky, tea and coffee. Good location 5min walk from the center of town and 1hr walk to the ferry port. (There's a bus for the more sensible people.) Everything I could ask for! Thank you Jacob's Inn Hostel.

Jacob's Inn is a great hostel in Dublin. The staff had great suggestions and always wore a smile! There is a very well equipped kitchen for personal cooking (helps to save money) and the breakfast will get you going in the morning (toast, juice, coffee, tea, cereal, milk). Well located (next to bus station and train station). It can get... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed in! Combines great location (close to bus and Connolly train station, temple bar), cleanness, security and spacious room and bathroom (triple or 4bed ensuite private room).

Nice place between Connolly station (train) and Busaras (bus) : I arrived at 21:45 at Connolly station, and I left on morning at 6:15 at Busaras, it was the best place I could find for such a rate. The bathroom was not really cleaned, and the hostel is a bit noisy. The staff is not so friendly.

We´ve travelled to Ireland in family first time.. It`s not easy to travel five people during 15 days around Ireland in expensive accommodation, so I thought the hostel way. The experience in this kind of accommodation-not during all days has been wonderful. To share spaces with young people when you have your private room with bathroom inside the room is... More
