Jacob's Inn a gem in Dublin
A really nice Hostel! I had one night and enjoyed the accommodations. Modern, clean, safe, great location and a nice bar to wind down a great time in Dublin. I loved that they had lockers in the room and you didn't need your own padlock. My only wish was that there was A/C as it was very hot in my room and the windows were open.
