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.

Jacobs Inn Dublin is a funky, vibrant and comfortable hostel with a wide range of accommodation options for the individual backpacker, families and groups of all sizes. All of our guests can enjoy ensuite showers and toilets and cool bar and restaurant. In our bar and restaurant we offer food and drinks during your stay, a great place to fuel up for your adventures around Dublin!

You can choose between Twin or Double Deluxe Rooms or stay in our signature POD beds. The pod beds give you all the privacy you need in a shared dorm without losing the option to socialize with your room mates. The dorm rooms are among the largest and most spacious in Dublin. Our dorms range from four-pod to twelve-pod dorms and all dorms have en-suite bathroom. All pods come equipped with privacy curtain, bed fitted lights and USBs, individual locker (no padlocks required!), clean white linen. Free WiFi throughout the building.

Wouldn't you like to stay in the best city centre location? Of course you would...well, Jacobs Inn couldn't have a better location to explore the city. Outside is the direct bus from Dublin Airport - take the Dublin Express and get here from the airport in only 25 minutes! We're also opposite Busaras, the central bus station. It's only 50m from here to Connolly train station and 20m to the LUAS, while O'Connell St is just 500m away. It's an easy walk to the O2 and Croke Park and only three DART stops to the Aviva Stadium. All tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and shops (including Trinity College and Temple Bar) are but a short stroll away.

You can chat with our friendly staff and get their advice on how best to enjoy our beautiful city. They can even sell you tickets for the best tours!

Friendly staff all round, great common area and bar downstairs. Laundry facilities with free washing powder. Close to tram and bus stops/stations. Shops and restaurants walking distance. Love the pods with privacy curtain and separate locker for baggage. Extra showers and toilets which is great for early morning starts so you don't disrupt room mates. Everything was great although wasn't told that a towel costs and they charged my card without informing me. Highly recommend.
