Location is very good and the staff is friendly. Roons are clean. Breakfast could be longer. 9.30 am is too early for backpackers who are going out at night. There could be single lights over the beds (as a suggestion)

As the title says, I was really impressed! The amenities were great, the place was incredibly clean and the staff were really helpful. Great location, only a short walk frokm the main high street and easy walk to Temple Bar. The rooms were immaculate and done to a great standard. There's information on things to do all over the hostel...

For my first visit to a hostel I was pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff & clean. We stayed as a group of 12 in a shared room of 6 bunk beds. Each bed had a plug socket (to charge phones) a little light and a curtain for privacy. The bathroom was big with one shower, however I preferred to use the...

As a solo traveller this is a great place to meet people and a perfect base to explore Dublin and the rest of Ireland. Just around the corner you can go with paddywagontours to every must see in Ireland. So the location of Jacobs inn is perfect. The staff and facilities are nothing to complain about. breakfast is simple but...

Please refer to previously written suggestions. The stay was adequate, but spacial limitation with so many people in such a small room got in the way of the experience. There was no room to walk across the room at times. Great kitchen space. Excellent staff with excellent suggestions. Great central location. Fun decor.

Hey There, Thank you for your stay and for your review! It was great to have you. Large dorms when fully occupied can from time to time get cluttered depending on how guests store their goods. We have a cage under each bunk for guests to store they travel gear. We hope to see you again! Yours, Jacobs Inn Team

Was really happy with this hostel. It was very clean and staff were helpful! I'd definitely recommend the walking tour as well! The hostel is very central. Only negative would be it wasn't very social. The common room downstairs was dead - which isn't ideal if you're travelling solo. Overall I'd recommend the hostel though!

Very big building, many facilities like kitchen and laundry and the location was unbeatable: about a mile away from Temple Bar itself but less than 100 mt from Busaras tram stop. Comfortable beds and many lockers available for use (besides the one by your bed). Some beds don't have curtains or their own light/outlet fixture.

This hostel was very clean and the staff were friendly. Good sized rooms with ensuite and a large kitchen and common room. A light breakfast is served in the mornings with a range of cereals and toast. Unfortunately we had a leaking toilet (clean water) which we requested to be fixed. However this was not attended to in over twenty...

Hey There, Thank you for your stay and for your review! It was great to have you. We apologise about the leaky toilet and hope that you were directed to use the communal toilets in the meantime. This we assure you is very unusual and has since been fixed. We hope to see you again! Yours, Jacobs Inn Team
