This hostel had a great location to get around Dublin and close to temple bar for nightlife! Stay for two nights during the recent NCAA Classic game at Croke Park. Easy routes to and from the airport and stadium! 8 of us in our own room with en-suite! Good for the price being paid per person. Sensible key system too!... More

7 Lads, loking for a cheap place to stay in Dublin. This Hostel was perfect. 2mins walk from the centre of Temple Bar, Excellent Wi-Fi and a brilliant communal area. My only complaint would be the fairly poor quality of the shower in our room, but the beds were comfy and the staff were very helpful!

We have returned from a 2 night stay at abigails and had a fantastic time. Being a group of 'older' travellers we were all a bit concerned about the cleanliness etc but we had nothing to worry about at all we had a better time than in some big hotels we have stayed in. All the staff were tremendously helpful... More

I stayed here twice in two different 6 bed female dorms, both very clean. One had a full bathroom with bathtub while the other had separate shower and toilet rooms. Neither had lockers in the rooms but I felt very safe here and security was excellent. Very nice and helpful staff. Great included breakfast and WiFi works everywhere. Best part?... More

This hostel is in a great location and easy to get to from airport. Staff friendly. Hostel clean. I stayed in a 8 bed female dorm with a bathroom and it was fine. Did get rather noisy late at night, but just from people outside. Would stay here again for sure.

The area is great, right in the centre. It's a really nice hostel, great common area and kitchen. The included buffet breakfast is good too, plenty of it! The bathrooms are really nice and always clean. The rooms are nice but perhaps a bit basic, especially as weekend bookings were €20 pppn. The beds are a little squeaky which can... More

We stayed here for two nights. It is in the city so it is loud and people are coming and going a lot. We were a party of 4 in a 6 bed room. The room is a little small but it worked. We had two great roommates and enjoyed their company. The cleanliness of the room was least to... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect. They have an excellent kitchen complete with oven, microwave and stove and enough pots and pans for everyone. The wifi worked very well in the lobby as well in my fourth floor room. On my last day I checked out at 10:30am and then chilled in the hostel lobby until... More
