Hostelworld says:

Jacobs Inn is set near Connolly Station and Busaras, Dublin's main bus station, making this location convenient for travellers going to and from the rest of Ireland. This hostel has been with Hostelworld for more than a decade and guests frequently compare it favourably to a hotel. Visitors tell us the walking tour is 'a great way to hit the highlights of Dublin if you're only there for a short time'. We like that all the rooms are ensuite-and judging from the reviews it seems our guests do, too.

    The value for the money is unbeatable and I especially liked the rooftop terrace as well as the provided free walking tours.
