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.

Great location. Pods instead of bed bunks means it gets very warm during the night inside of them. No kitchen and no interaction with other guests. There's this small 'chill out' zone that looked like to be a kitchen in the past but it's quite damp and smells weird. All in all if what you look for is just to spend a night cheaplyish this is the place.

Loved staying here it was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pods were nice and the dinning room area was fun to hang out at. The location was walking distance to the city center. Would stay here again.
