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.

There are only usb outlets in the beds so if you don’t have a usb you have to charge in the common area. Wasn’t very much happening at the hostel but plenty to do in town. Very close to train station

Great place but the location is alright it’s not in the best part of town and the staff was very rude. We arrived 3 minutes before our check in and she made us stand there and wait until it was 3 o’clock on the dot. Also I went to the front desk during my stay to ask a question and the receptionist couldn’t be bothered to look up from their phone and I stood there while being completely ignored.
