This hostel is all about the location. You're seconds away from temple bar, bus stops, and trinity. The common room doesn't really have any personality, but it's big with couches and a tv, and you can still meet people I suppose.... the staff is definitely friendly as they recommended a great walking tour/pub crawl as soon as we got there..and...

I was in some hostels in Dublin but the best hostel in Dublin is this one. At first this hostel in the centre of Dublin, it's not far from attraction and malls. At second rooms are clear and beds are comfortable, the staff are polite and friendly.At third breakfast is better than in the another hostels

Location of a hostel really surprised us. It's near everything important to see in Dublin except Kilmainham Gaol and Guinness Storehouse eventhough we went there on foot as well. Stuff is really friendly and everyone that works there is young. Breakfast was ok - toast bread, butter and jam, boiled eggs, fruit joghurt, milk, cereals, coffee and juice...it is served... More

Abigails is in a handy location in Dublin if you want to be close to the main sights, shopping and the Temple Bar area which is full of pubs and music (though of course it is pretty touristy). The hostel was fine and did the job, it was clean, WiFi was good, bed was comfortable though the staff were just... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks while hunting for a job/flat in Dublin. I stayed in a couple different rooms as it was a busy time and that was all that was available. 8 bed female dorm, 8 bed mixed dorm and a 3 bed female room. The three bed was extremely nice very clean and a nice view of... More

We've really liked this hostel! The staff was very nice and helpful, our room was clean, the common room was quiet comfortable, good breakfast. The location is the best of all - in the center, but out of the noise. I would definitely recommend it!

Awesome staff: they'll help you with directions, places to go, booking tours, etc. Really friendly. Great location: Off the river in central Dublin. We walked everywhere in Dublin - never took a bus or taxi. Not the cleanest: Wasn't absolutely filthy, just could have been better. Especially the bathrooms. Dirt marks and such. Ultimately - a great hostel.

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
