Liked: Stayed in a private twin room with a friend, was really clean and nice. At night it was a little bit loud but the noise wasnt people it was the train, the track ran right down the side of the building. But we arent too fussy so it was okay for us. Kinda steep price for what you get but it is Dublin. Overall I had a mad time :)

27 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The common area is pretty nice and the hostel attracts a pretty cool crowd of people. The rooftop deck offers a nice view of dublin and the breakfast is nothing special but its free so you can't really complain. There is also a "game room" that offers another smaller common area so their are multiple places to go to get away from people when need be.The room I had was in great shape and pretty spacious compared to a lot of hostels. The walls seem to be paper thin and the rooms themselves pick up every little noise so it can be a little hard to sleep. The pillows are paper thin and might as well not be there. The bathrooms are actually really nice but the showers are the push button kind where you have to hit a button every minute or so to keep them running.

22 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Well I had a wonderful stay at your hostel. The staff member who stood out the most was John - very welcoming on the front desk & really helpful when giving out tips on what to see and do around Dublin.The hostel was very neat - shame about there being no lockers in the actual rooms, slightly inconvieniant to have to constantly go downstairs to grab things out of your bag... but at least it was secure.The room itself was a little noisy (103) as it was located opposite the lift, so you could hear when other people came onto the floor to have conversations in the middle of the night after a night out on the town. The bathroom sinks make an awful noise after using them - you should try to address this. Also the shower pressure was awful, maybe something you can address later on.Was pleased with the location, not too hard to find and you could walk everywhere which was a bonus. Loved the tv room on level one also. A very trendy and modern hostel!Keep up the good work guys!

01 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I met some really lovely people there with whom I surely will be in contact in the future. There was a guy at the reception, who was super really nice and EMPLOYEE: helpful, patient. worked at night there. he got the A+, which is surely not meant for all the employees there. overall, a really good value for money. INTERNET was VERY BAD. guys, work on that. if it is mentioned: internet available, i expect that it is really working. BREAKFAST AWEFUL: just jam and toast. i don't like sweet breakfast and i had no other choice. also the breakfast room was too small for all the guests. CLEAN: YES. SAVE: YES. super location. I would book again....but bring my own breakfast and hope for a much better internet.

Adam Hanson

09 January 2010 Adam would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were quite helpful and there weren't a ton of rules at the hostels which seems to be the case with most these days, treating their customers like 13 yr olds. Hostels should be enjoyed and I believe Jacob's Inn follows this idea by helping people have a good time in Dublin and their stay at the hostel.
