Easy stay, lovely hostel. Weekend in Dublin was easy with the location. Commons area is lovely, never woke up in time for breakfast but apparently it's free! Bus to airport picks up and drops off right outside the hostel.

This hostel was great. It was easy to get to from the airport via airlink bus. We storred our luggage and explored before the scheduled check in time. The staff was incredible and the organized walking tour and pub crawl are an absolute must.

Nice location and confortable beds. The rooms have a good size for the number of bed. There was a lots of groups while my stay, and they made a lot of noise during the night, but nobody from the staff intervene. But the kitchen was great and big enough so a fee people could do their food at the same...

Jacobs Inn had helpful desk staff and great accommodations, including a shuttle service to the airport (for a small price), discounts on tours, and and vending machines that have power outlet converters. I was pleasantly surprised by the ensuite bathroom, which offers more privacy for showering, etc. The only thing that bothered me was the loud music in the lounge...

We didn't have the best stay at Jacobs Inn. The staff where very unfriendly and we didn't give us great information about tours. The hostel has children running around unattended and it was annoying. The breakfast was okay, but they started packing it away early. It's a safe hostel.

We were a group of 16 ppl, we took a 12p room + 4p room and overall the experience was great. Roomes were clean and beds surprisingly comfy. Private bathrooms. Roof terrace at the 4th floor. Games space with a pool and a fussball very appreciated.

Previously I stayed in other hostels in Dublin, but this is by far the best one. Location is excellent, it is in the town, just 15 minutes walking from Temple Bar. The staff is friendly and the environment is excellent for families as well. Also, security is pretty good, during the night they ask for the safety pass.

Location - Location is everything for this and I'd come again for that. Located right next to the bus station (great for convenience and leaving your luggage, absolutely horrendous for night time noises) and also just a few streets down from where all the tours and hop on / off buses start. Value - not really, there's cheaper hostels in...

We´ve been a bigger group (17 people in total) between 46-21 years old and our time at the Jacobs Inn was really nice. The private rooms are nice and have enough space, the enclosed bathrooms are really clean, the beds were more comfortable than we´ve had in some hotels until now. The stuff is helpful and nice for any questions....
