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

Jacobs Inn was definitely one of the bigger hostels. It was clean for the amount of people it had always coming and going. It's always busy but I stayed there in August so that was expected. They do allow families so expect children around you, and also large groups (good luck getting breakfast and a place to sit when they're... More

This hostel is really nice and has got a strategic location that eaily connects you to the centre. I stayed here with my husband and we really enjoyed everything. Brakfast was the highlight of this trip. The staff is efficient and we were given good suggestions on tours. We will definitely come back!

My only beef is the fact that there's just one shower/WC facility in each room even where there are 12 people sharing. But it helps that there are toilets on the lobby of every floor and on the ground floor so it's not really a big issue. The couches are comfy and they are strategically positioned so that making eye... More

Tons of pubs within crawling distance, friendly staff and decent beds. There were some rowdy folks outside the hostel, and the staff took care of them immediately. As far as hostels go, this was brilliant. Perfect for a buddy trip, and for those backpacking. Plus Dublin is just amazing. Will visit again!

Jacob's Inn really helped ease the transition of going to a new country. The staff was so friendly and helpful! I didn't feel nervous about getting around alone because of how much they helped explain directions and the culture to me. All of my interactions with people working or staying there were positive. Traveling alone can be lonely, but the... More
