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.

Jacob's Inn was pretty good and modern. I stayed 2 nights and enjoyed my stay. The 4-bed dorm was clean and comfortable. The washroom and shower was very clean, except the showers had a 15 second timer which was a bit annoying, but I can deal with it. The hostel itself had a nice restaurant and bar, but no kitchen facilities. The staff was quite helpful. The guests were quite chill and friendly. I would recommend and stay there again.

My dorm was all female and was pretty clean and quiet for the most part. The cubbies are comfy and offer a lot of privacy. They make it very secure to get in and out of the dorm area, but the key system is extremely easy. The cafe bar downstairs is convenient and the events hosted by this hostel and others create an easy atmosphere to make friends! Also the location is right by the traina and buses, not a bad walk to the city center/ Temple bar area. Would definitely stay again.
