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

For the price you pay, this hostel was awesome. Great location right downtown, and working wifi!! (This was huge as touring Europe in hostels usually it didn't work in your room) I would definitely go back.

A good hostel with all you need; bed, clean bathroom, breakfast included, wifi, and a good location in the centre of Dublin. Spent three night there with friends and we all agreed it was a good place to stay. And it's very cheap!

Great location close to city centre. Hostel was generally clean. The price was very reasonable. Had no problems what so ever and reception seemed fairly friendly offering advice etc. Would recommend and stay again.

I just needed this hostel to stay a for 3 nights to visit a friend while I was in Dublin. I recieved a very warm welcome when I arrived and the staff were very professional, friendly and helpful in every way. The dorm I was in was right next to the road and right around the corner from temple bar... More

I genuinely can't fault this hostel. The location was perfectly central and close to all the main attractions. We stayed in a private room for 3 which was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a little noisy at night but that's the price you pay for being so close to all the action. Great value for money, helpful staff,... More

This was the first hostel I had ever stated at and my first trip abroad from the US. I was worried about how a hostel would be since they are so much cheaper than hotels but Abigail's was certainly a 5 star place in my opinion. The common room was nice, the room was clean and the private bathroom was... More
