It was my first time staying in a hostel and definitely didn't disappoint. Everything was very clean and rooms were large with reasonably comfy beds. Great kitchen facilities to cook own food, with plenty of fridge space where they provide labels for your food. Reception is open 24 hours which is very handy. Breakfast was okay (not very much selection...

Big hostel, 24 hour reception, huge lockers. 20-30 minutes walking to temple bar and other nice veneus. Great kitchen facilities, nice warm showers, but as a solo traveller is it hard to meet other people. The hostel for me need to be cosier, so i feel human, and not a number.

Would recommend for a few nights in Dublin! Large under bed lockers, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Small surcharge for a towel if you're in a dorm room. Breakfast nothing fancy. Located quite centrally and easy to access the touristy things. Would recommend the free walking tour as well (just tip your guide at the end - they're pretty good!...

It was very clean, the breakfast was ok and the rooms were very clean and private. Each bunk bed had a curtain, light and a place to charge my phone. The only thing Was that my travel adaptor didn't fit so the first night I wasn't able to charge my phone but then the person at the reception let me...

The breakfast is free, but they only offer coffee, milk, toast and jam. Well located, 10 minutes walking distance from O`Conelly St and Temple Bar neighborhood. Steps far from Buhara train station and Airlink express bus stop. Free walking tour.

All of your basic needs are met: proximity to the city center, cleanliness, and hospitality. Everyone we met was incredibly kind and helpful, most of all the front desk staff. The rooms were spotless, which is impressive considering my boyfriend and I were sharing with six other people. I highly, highly recommend.

A great example of a busy city hostel! The people who maintain Jacobs Inn were friendly and very relaxed. This I felt was one of the most important factors looking back now. The choice of room wouldn't affect the quality of our stay because of the shared spaces and communal feel. However, the rooms are kept clean and with bathrooms...

My friend and I stayed in the girls sleeping dorm for 8 people. The accommodation was great. Each bed had its own curtain, so you have a lot of privacy even though you have to share it with 7 other people. Bus 742 (the one you can take from the airport) stops a street away from the hostel which is...

We stayed in a four bed private room with ensuite. Room was spacious, clean and warm. Beds were comfortable, surprisingly! Shower was hot and towels were provided. Breakfast was more than adequate, toast with jams or Nutella, cereals and a range of drinks. We were fortunate to be allowed to check in at 1.30pm as our room was ready-bonus! Large...
