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.

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...

Enjoyed staying at Jacobs Inn, it is great for seeing the city but also for travelling on, since bus station and connolly train station are easily accessible! I recommend it for single and group travellers!

Very comfortable bunk bed, with privacy curtains and sockets in each bed which is a huge plus. The en-suite room that I stayed in was clean and tidy. The only major annoyance was that the showers were on a timer which periodically disrupted an otherwise comfortable shower. The kitchen was clean and spacious and the reception staff were generally helpful....

Had a great stay, booked for a group of 23 of us. Staff on reception were really helpful and provided us with some good recommendations. Rooms were spotless, beds were comfy, modern bathrooms and showers. Location could have been a tad more central, but you can't have everything. Would highly reccomend.

My stay here was great. The people were great, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and check in was easy. Free breakfast is always a plus, and there was a lot of it. Definitely would recommend!
