I've been coming back to this hostel for over a decade now. I've always been very happy with it and can only recommend it! The beds are very comfy and the rooms warm enough so you don't need to bring a sleeping bag. Duvets are nice and fluffy. Every bed has a plug and little light and a curtain to...

This is by a country mile the best hostel in Dublin City, the curtains and sockets in each bed is a real plus and the kitchen is brilliant. Also the laundry is cheaper than any hostel around and with most rooms ensuite it's very convenient

I stayed in a 10 person mixed room with one other person. On our first night there, someone decided to have sex for over an hour and kept everyone up. It was beyond uncomfortable to be in that room. That morning, I went and spoke to the staff. They said that they couldn't move me and my only other option...

Ths hostel is clean and inviting, but I wasn't a fan of the lockers being in a separate room. It is in walking distance to everything so that was a major plus. Something that irked me majorly though was their lack of organization in their bookings. My first night here, our room had a booking error. A couple had been...

This was my very first stay at any hostel and frankly speaking I was having mixed feelings initially. But after staying at Jacobs Inn, now I can not think of staying at any other place ever. The best experience of my life, made so many good friends from all around the world and literally enjoyed my time in beautiful city...

One of the better hostels that I have stayed in Europe. The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating, the rooms were cozy and the beds comfortable, and the location was conveniently located to everything in downtown Dublin. They have two fantastic lobby/lounge areas to hang out in on the ground level and there also a cool deck/terrace area on the...
