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.

    I stayed here at the beginning and at the end of my trip to visit Ireland. All I can say is that the whole experience was wonderful. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. Definitely deserving of my rating.

    Had the kitchen facilities been open during our stay, this would be a perfect rating. I was a bit hesitant about sleeping in the pods, but after just one night, I'm a fan. I'll certainly consider staying here in future Dublin visits.

    This is a really good hostel. The security was the best I've experienced anywhere and you get a free locker in your room. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Whenever I walked through the common area people seemed to be enjoying themselves. The pods you sleep in are cool - you get a curtain, a light, a shelf and a USB charging port. Comfy beds. Ensuite bathroom. Only issue was parking - none at hostel and the nearest car park was about 10 minutes walk away and expensive.

    Jacobs Inn was a great place to stay at! The pods give you the privacy you want while also still giving you the opportunity to socialize with the others in your dorm. The pods do get a little warm but I slept without the sheets on and was fine! Once construction is done and there’s a bigger common area this place will get 5 stars. The facilities and dorm rooms were always clean. The Garda (police) is right around the corner so I felt safe. I will definitely be back one day!

    Pod rooms are amazing. No kitchen area or even microwave or sink to use (likely because they are in renovation state) however this was frustrating. Very close to bus and train station and about 10-15 min walk to temple bar area. In addition to the room lockers they offer luggage storage security lockers.

    The keypad locks were great on the doors and lockers, very convenient! It was a nice place to stay even with renovations going on. The main drawback is the sleeping pods in the room. There was no airflow in the room, so the pods were very hot, making it difficult to sleep. Overall, the amenities were nice, but since we were there just for sleeping, it put a damper on the rating for us.

    The hostel is in the middle of a renovation, so common area and dining room was closed some of the time we were there. The sleeping room was renovated and very nice, but no chairs to sit down other than in the bunks. The built-in lockers contain their own locks (think hotel safe combo lock) and that was very convenient. The bathroom was mostly clean except for the shower grout, which needed a good cleaning. The hotel staff were very helpful in recommendations for day trips out of Dublin.

    Location, staff and security were all great. Beds were very uncomfortable and I woke up in a pool of sweat both nights I slept there. Absolutely need’s better ventilation/air-conditioning for the rooms.
