I stayed in Jacob's Inn a few times, whenever I came back to Dublin and I will stay here again in future. The hostel is huge, so sometimes it gets a bit loud but its mostly quite after 11pm. The staff is superfriendly and very willing to help. I never had any problems at all. The breakfast is simple but you don't have to wash your dishes afterwards as in most other hostels and they take care that everybody gets something. I never heard 'we're out of toast' or anything like that. The self-catering kitchen is clean if you use it earlier in the evening, afterwards it starts to get dirty as many people don't care about how they leave the kitchen after they cooked. There are 12 cooking plates and 3 ovens, 2 microwaves and a kettle.
A huge plus is the roof terrace, a very nice spot even in the rain as it has a roof covering half the area. Another advantage is the lift if you're not travelling light.
All in all it's one of the best hostels I stayed in, clean and very welcoming. I recommend it!
