                        Yes, there was not telephone into the room, connection with the reception was impossible and in case of danger you were unhelped! What happened to me was that a drunk man, during the night, tried to enter my room in a bad way, and I could not communicate with the reception!

                        The office personal was very helpfull. My key card failed to work, I got another one right away.

                        It's a pity Jacobs doesn't have a bar license. In order to get a drink or anything you have to get out.

                        Great location both for visiting the city center and for the stop of the bus for the airport. I expected it to be louder, but it proved even quieter than most hotels I was in.

                        The best things about Jacobs Inn Hostel are its personnel and international atmosphere.

                        During the nights it was too loud: I could hear people talk in the other rooms and in the street.

                        I liked the staff and the fact that they had the ability to book activities and excursions for you.

                        Continental breakfast was unimaginative.

                        Very good location for transport. Next to the Luas and the bus to the airport.

                        Good location, just a few minutes from 'O Connell Street. The Airlink bus to and from the airport stops just around the corner. Rooms are clean. Hotel staff is very friendly.

                        the room was quite confortable and clean, as well the bathroom, very close to the bus station and to Connolly so I would advice it if you need to use the bus or the train..

                        not so close to temple bar and the area with the nightplaces, it was difficult to sleep until late because the curtains couldn't avoid that the light filter through in the room also in the early morning...

                        The staff was very helpful and I felt very comfortable and so welcomed.

                        The condition of the bathroom (6 bed dorm room) was subpar and the tile of the floor was falling apart; it was a safety hazard.

                        I really liked that members of jacobs wereinvited to other hostels for bbq's and other events. It was also nice being able to just sit back in the lounge and watch a movie with fellow backpackers. The front desk staff was also very nice and axcomidating....definitely recommend it to anyone.

                        Not enough electrical outlets in rooms, pillows are very thin

                        The possibility to lock your luggage, the kitchen where we could cook our own dinner, the lounge for relaxing, the breakfast was fine, the beds were comfortable and sheets were clean, the location was fine (everything walking distance), a lot of safety doors (so its very safe place)

                        some stoves didnt work well in the kitchen, we cooked pasta for 2 hours.

                        That the Key was a Card

                        It was dirty and the gender was not separated.
