First ever stay in a hostel and I am shocked at how lovely and so trendy this place is! We paid 30€ pp for one night couldn't ask for anything more for a place to crash. Nice place for us to hang around all day waiting for our flight home.

Stayed for three nights in mid October, had a nice stay. Jacobs is a very large hotel-style hostel near the bus station. Staff are very friendly and the common areas are kept very neat and tidy. My only minor complaint is the bathrooms in the rooms. They could use some refreshing and getting rid of the 30 second shower buttons....

Reasonable price per night (£11 per 12 bed doorm on Sunday and Monday night - think rates may go up if you are staying Friday or Sat night) for a hostel 15 min walking distance from the main attractions. Breakfast included in the price is ok. Stayed in 12 bed doorm where each bed had a curtain and a plug...

Well located, clean, nice & helpful staff . Will come again. I wish the self kitchen was open 24h, and that laundry was cheaper. But overall it is definitely an excellent place, with big stylish common areas.

the hostel very comfortable and clean, the curtains in front of every bed are great as they give some privacy. Great location, the entire city is easily accessible on foot and the bus stop of the airport bus is close too. There is really nothing to complainl

Stayed in at Jacobs Inn for a weekend Stag do. Room was clean and well presented. Hostel is secure with key card access to the majority of the building. Free wifi also available. One negative point is that there was only one toilet and shower in a 12 person room. Price was ok for two nights and is about a...

Jacobs is amazing. The location is perfect. The Airlink 747 (€10 return to airport) drops off almost right outside Jacobs, and the pick up point to return to the airport is also just 2mins walk to the Busaras station. The bus takes only about 30mins from airport to the hostel. Wifi works at great speed, and is very stable throughout...
