I stayed here for a total of 1.5 weeks while i was in Ireland. Great place to stay right in Temple Bar and close to the shops and great pubs. It was clean, friendly, and breakfast was good. I only had a problem with noise once, and it was a club playing Backstreet Boys (which was actually fine). I've already... More

I just stayed 2 nights in Abigails, really happy with it. I was in an all female dorm. It is a great location, literally 2 mins walk from O'Connell Street and 5 mins from Temple Bar. Breakfast was fine and staff were friendly. for €20 a night, you cannot go wrong. My only complaint and its not really a complaint,... More

Didn't have the best experience at Abigails but I think it's because it was my first time ever staying in a hostel. The main issues were my roommates and the noise out in the hallways. Pros: Abigails is right in the Temple Bar area which is really convenient. There are several bus stops right outside the front door as well... More

This is a hostel, and keeping that in mind, Abigail's is an excellent place to stay while in Dublin. Apart from the first floor being close to a major bus stop, the hostel is quiet and clean. En suite bathrooms are available even in large dormitories, which is really convenient. Our large 10 bed dorm had 2 showers and 2... More

My daughter and I stayed here June 4-6 2014. As we were traveling four countries and five cities I wanted her to have all forms of travel experiences hence I chose a hostel. Abigails has the best reviews and ratings from my research. Having never stayed at a hostel i wasn't sure what to expect. The entrance is easy to... More

I loved staying at Abigail's Hostel in Dublin. Out of all the hostel's I stayed in in Europe this one was the best! The hostel is located right on the Liffey River on Aston Quay. It is a block from O'Connell St and right near Temple Bar. You don't need a bus pass if you stay here everything is so... More

Stayed for one night. When I reached the main entrance I thought by the look of the door that the place was closed down. It has frosted glass and looked disused. I could get in without being buzzed in. The guys on reception were having a bit of a chat when I walked up to them and customer service didn't... More

Neighborhood (Dublin City Centre): The hostel is situated at a bus stop so there are a lot of people just standing in front of the door at times. It is relatively safe, though there are many beggars around the streets of the place. There is always a good number of people walking around the streets though. The Stay: The beds... More

This hostel is fine for a hostel. The staff is ok. It's a big hostel. Fantastic location near temple bar. Keys are difficult to open door. The included breakfast was fine. No lockers in dorm rooms which is a pain.

The location is right in the city centre so making your way home after a long day isn't too much hassle. The free breakfast every morning was great and the common area was an awesome place to hang out and meet people. We stayed in the 12 bed room, and not having the showers/bathrooms outside of the room was only... More
