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.

    Stephanie was amazing! I got there a little early but she was able to get me in and I had some questions about what to do and she was very detailed really knew her stuff and was able to answer all my questions. I definitely would recommend this place without any hesitation! Great location, great staff and great stay!

    This one ranks at the top of hostels I’ve stayed at. Location is 5 mins from train/bus stops as well as several bars and attractions. Facility is updated/new. Rooms have big lockers and their own bathroom. Pod beds can’t be beat for privacy and comfort. Only complaints I would have is the community bathrooms look like they could be cleaned a little more often and the attached cafes food is pretty mediocre. I would recommend eating at one of the many bars or restaurants that are close by instead.

    If you’re looking for a clean, modern space where you can unwind at the end of the day, this one’s for you! Breakfast isn’t included but I didn’t mind, the sleeping pods are a hundred times better than bunk beds and I felt safe in the area at night.

    Very trendy for a hostel, feels like a hotel. Sleeping in pods was a really cool experience and the rooms have little lockers for each bed which was nice. Had an en-suite bathroom which was really nice. Not a super social atmosphere but would stay again
