Thanks for great review and yes getting in the wrong bed is to be avoided - they are all labelled with numbers to help you. Hopefully your fellow room mates were tolerant of the mistake More

After reading all these great reviews here on tripadvisor I was expecting a bit more than what I got, so don't get your expectations too high. I stayed on a private room with bathroom for 1 night, here goes a short summary: Pros: - Nice view from the balcony on the 4th floor - Bedroom is furnished with a TV,... More

Our Light breakfast is free and simple but we do have a self-catering Kitchen if you want to prepare something extra .We are currently reviewing expansion of space in the Breakfast area for when the Hostel is very busy .I am so sorry if you found the bedroom cold we will check the heater and we will be making upgrades...

Its alright but dunno why it ranks so high here. Stayed 7 nights and the alarm sounded in the middle of the night twice. The kitchen closes at 11pm, you wont even be able to make tea until it opens again. But there's plenty of hobs but it takes AGES to heat up and cook your dinner. Free breakfast, free... More

Thanks for your comments .Our apologies if you found we had shortcomings, We do not open the Common rooms throughout the night as this can cause disturbance to guests sleeping in Dorms when others come in very late, and are nightlife in Dublin is such that many people are ready for Bed when they return to the Hostel.

I stayed here over the New Year period with a group of 7 friends. The hostel seems a bit run down, for example the furniture is quite shabby and it could do with a general freshening-up of the place. The room was fairly big (we shared an 8 bedroom) with comfy bunk beds although the stuffing in the pillows was... More

You really can't beat 11 euros a night. It's super close to everything, has a very helpful and easygoing staff, and is clean! It is a rather large hostel so there are people everywhere all the time and the walls are a bit thin. The kitchen gets very crowded very fast but it's very easy to meet people. Blankets/sheets are...

I stayed here over Christmas for a couple of days. The beds were fairly comfortable and clean. The only drawback was the hostel was bursting with people. There was little privacy and quiet a bit of noise through the night. The bathrooms were dirty and not regularly cleaned but there was a private bathroom for each room. Roof terrace was... More

Jacobs Inn is a much larger hostel than I'm used to. As a result, the common areas are super busy-- especially the kitchen. It's clearly well-managed, with friendly staff and daily cleaning. Its main perk is the location, being in central Dublin. It's within walking distance of thriving shopping strips, bus stops (including buses arriving from the airport) and train/tram... More

My friend and I loved our stay at Jacob's Inn. The staff was so helpful on giving us directions and advice on things to do in Dublin. The rooms were clean and the luggage storage room felt very secure. My favorite part of Jacob's Inn is the crowd that is drawn here. It was honestly the best bunch of people... More

The hostel is basic but clean. I stayed in a private room with a friend when booking we marked that we want separate beds however had a double bed. We also had a tv in our room and the private bathroom was very big with a shower. The buffet breakfast was basic but good. The location is central when we... More
