I was there with a class of 29 17-year-old Polish students and what I loved about the hostel is that my class absolutely loved it! especially cooking together, the terrace and the lobby, where they chatted with foreigners, and the Nutella-filled breakfasts - even the boys who complained about the lack of ham or sausage also delighted in it:-)

This turned out to be a lot better than I thought. I didn't have high expectations. I've done plenty of pack packing in the past and have learned that when it comes to hostels you can't really expect a lot. As long the place is clean, safe and on a good location I'm happy. However, I actually thought Jacobs Inn... More

I don't have much to say, the rooms were clean and comfortable, everything was very practical and the staff was kind and helpful. We didn't ask for more ! And we had more than what we expected. The only thing that was missing was maybe a better breakfast to make us stay at the hostel in the morning. But apart... More

Had a good night's stay while passing through Dublin. Location was great- easy walking to shopping, restaurants, sights and transit. Would definitely recommend. This last sentence is only because I'm required to write 200 characters.

Very good hostel in Dublin. Good price, good structure, great stuff, great location! Dublin is really nice, funny and beautiful. Don't miss in visit the Guinness factory, it's a must, even if you don't drink beer. The Temple bar and surrounds, restaurants. Great city!
