We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Jacobs Inn is set near Connolly Station and Busaras, Dublin's main bus station, making this location convenient for travellers going to and from the rest of Ireland. This hostel has been with Hostelworld for more than a decade and guests frequently compare it favourably to a hotel. Visitors tell us the walking tour is 'a great way to hit the highlights of Dublin if you're only there for a short time'. We like that all the rooms are ensuite-and judging from the reviews it seems our guests do, too.

    Very clean and in a handy location next to the LUAS, Busaras and Connolly station. The main downside is the large groups of school children staying there who basically take over.

    Fabulous

    I thought the location was very handy for sure. Staff were very friendly. And it seemed very secure as well. The only downside was that they were doing some construction work while I was staying there, but that wasn't a big deal. I did book the place with the idea that I'd be able to use the self-catering kitchen but unfortunately it was under construction and is being replaced with a restaurant/café. So, I had to eat out more than I wanted. But I would still recommend it. I'll go back.

    A short walk to things in the city center/temple bar but definitely worth it for the cleanliness and quiet at night! The staff was super helpful and attentive with plenty of recommendations. Lots of small details that make traveling a breeze (free luggage lock up, towels in the private room, early check in, breakfast served till 930). Fun things planned if your traveling alone and want to meet people and the communal areas were always full. I would definitely stay again!

    My stay was OK. There is a lot of construction, though this only inconvenienced me when getting to my room. What I didn’t care for was having large numbers of *very* young travelers that often took up much of the common space and were quite loud. I also was given a bed where the under the bed locker could not fully roll out without hitting another bed, which made it difficult to store anything. Lastly, the location wasn’t as central as I realized. Staff was great, as was cleanliness!

    12 Mar 2019
    Unser Zimmer war gut, die Betten waren bequem und es war sauber. Die Steckdosen und Lampen an den Betten funktionieren (noch) nicht und weder im Bad noch sonstwo gab es Steckdosen, so dass man sich nur im Flur föhnen oder irgendwas laden konnte. Ganz komisches und super nerviges System - an fast jeder Tür muss man seine Karte verwenden, um sie zu öffnen oder einen Kopf drücken, um raus zu kommen. Sonst sehr anonym und generell fehlte es an durchdachten Kleinigkeiten..

    The dorm I was staying in had no heating was freezing every night. Management didn't care. No kitchen laundry service due to renovations. Shocking to pay what I paid for 3 nights. Not value for money....

    I was put in a room with all men who were a lot older than me, and I did not feel safe, nor did I feel comfortable at all in this environment.
